How to decide on a wedding photographer | Madison Wedding Photography | Milwaukee wedding photography

Miriam Bulcher

It’s engagement season and if you’ve done a google search for wedding photographers lately your anxiety is probably through the roof. I get it, totally. When I was looking for our wedding photographer I was so frustrated I actually gave up and it was my husband that found our photographer, ironically enough! It makes perfect sense when I think back about it because he’s the more patient one out of the two of us so of course he had the patience to go through all the links on google at the time.

Lucy Haug Boudoir & Headshot session | Madison Headshot Photographer | Madison Portrait Photography

Miriam Bulcher

Such an incredible soul.

Lucy booked a boudoir session and when we talked on the phone, she said she wanted to do something for herself as she hadn’t done anything like this in years. She also said she wanted me to photographer her the way I envsioned as an artist. Such warming words for my heart because that is the goal, to trust the person who is photographing you.

I was in awe when Lucy came in because she has such an energy about her, she is an incredible confident woman and you can feel that when you speak with her. She has been apart of the Madison Opera for years and needless to say, it was my honour to do her makeup and photograph her. Especially on someone who has had their makeup done so many times.

We went through a variety of outfits and all I can say is wow, I am beyond lucky that I get to photograph such incredible women. I hope you can see her strength through these photos, just as I did when I met her!

Miriam is absolutely lovely to work with. She’s a true professional who knows exactly what she’s doing. You get a full makeover, so she is putting a lot of work into your session. Meanwhile, you’re conversing and not even noticing the talent that goes into all of this...until you see your photos! That’s when you find yourself floored because you had no idea you could look that good on camera. And, at the same time, it’s still YOU. She nailed it and I’m so happy with my photos!

Cierra Boudoir Shoot | Madison Boudoir Photography | Madison Boudoir Session

Miriam Bulcher

I had reached out to Cierra to do a modelling session for boudoir as I wanted to some more portfolio work to show others and she was happy to oblige!

She came over to my studio and I asked her to bring a dress shirt with her, I wasn’t totally sure how I was envisioning the dress shirt but hey, I tend to fly by the seat of my pants occasionally. We started with hair and makeup which, she is naturally stunning so it made my job easy!

Another reason I do modelling sessions is so that I can try out new methods and new lighting techniques to bring my clients the absolute best images. I was so happy to try out a few new things and I hope you enjoy seeing them below!

All photos are taken at my studio located in Sun Prairie, WI.

Miriam Bulcher

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner!

madison boudoir sessions

Valentine’s day gifts can be tricky if you’re running out of ideas. Many women are afraid of getting photographed with minimal clothing on, and often times the idea of getting photographed in lingerie is terrifying. Totally get it, which is why I don’t push lingerie at all!!

This year I am offering a simple sheet session where you can cover or show as much as you want. Every single woman I’ve had in my studio is has mentioned that they were nervous going into the session but felt SO comfortable towards the end and after the session was over.

All of my sessions include professional hair, makeup and wardrobe if you want it! Simple is best!

Until December 31st, you can get all of this including a few digital images for just $99! Click here to schedule your spot today!

Merry Christmas! | Madison Wedding Photographer | Madison Engagement Photography

Miriam Bulcher

Merry Christmas!

2018 has been absolutely incredible for our business. I couldn’t have imagined a better year especially since I thought that moving to a new state would mean 2 years before I could book anything here.

Well, that was the farthest from the truth and I’m so thankful to all my clients that have booked me for their 2019 wedding photographer. You mean so much to me and I hope next year looks as promising for you as it does for me!

Merry Christmas and enjoy this time with your loved ones! <3

Give the gift of self love this Christmas | Madison Boudoir Photographer | Madison headshot photographer

Miriam Bulcher

Give it to yourself of course.

I’m being 100% serious. You might be asking, what on EARTH does that look like?

You’re going to acknowledge whether you want to love yourself or not. That might sound depressing but in order for this to work, it’s true, you will have to have a desire to love all of yourself, not just parts of it, but ALL of it, including the imperfect parts you may hate.

Journal your thoughts & feelings towards yourself

madison boudoir photography

Start taking notes about how you talk to yourself, or how you think about yourself. It is always negative? Is there any positive in there at all? Is it worse at certain times during the week? Or maybe certain times during the month?

Keep track! This is important because only when you know how frequently and where your thoughts go is key in re-wiring your brain and your thought process. Get a cute journal, something that inspires you to write and start keeping it close. Keep a close eye on those thoughts.

For every negative thought you write, find something positive to say about yourself after it.

This will probably be the hardest thing you will have to do.

It will be hard, I know, and sometimes you might struggle to come up with something but you MUST TRY. That is what I’m asking, that you try.

Accept that it will be hard work, and it will take time.

Like all rewarding accomplishments, it will take time and hard work to rewire your brain to be more positive to yourself. That is totally normal!

The biggest takeaway here is that you accept that, and don’t get discouraged when you have a bad day. Bad days are bound to happen, journal it out!

Take photos of yourself

The only way to get across a hurdle is to face it. If you’re scared of how you look in photos, take photos of yourself, either by you or someone else. Maybe this is the time to book yourself a photo session.

Print them out, put them in your journal, write across the top of them “I LOVE THIS BODY!” “THIS BODY EMPOWERS ME!”

Miriam Bulcher, Madison boudoir photography

Sometimes in order to believe it, you have to keep saying it over and over and over again. If you’d like to book a session with me to increase your confidence, email me at! 563-676-3980

I KNOW you can do it. Love yourself this Christmas and the rest of your life! Let’s start now.

I’m currently creating a body confidence coaching program, if you’d like to know more about it when it comes out, put your email in down below! You’ll also receive more content like this about body positivity. :)

Galena, IL Winter Engagement Session

When I connected with Emily, I had the pleasant surprise to find out not only are they getting married at one of my favourite spots (Galena) but that her fiance Tyler was Canadian! Woot woot!

You guys know I’m Canadian so to meet AND photograph another Canadian is just too exciting! I met with them this past weekend in downtown Galena to do their engagement photos and they are so cute together it goes beyond adorable.

Emily + Tyler met in college and have been smitten with each other since, thank goodness for me! These pictures turned out SO good and I’m so stoked for their wedding next year!
