Not just for the wedding night!

Brides are normally supposed to save their  feminine treasures for the night after their wedding.

But an increasing number of brides are  surprising their grooms with saucy portraits of themselves prior to tying the  knot.

Known as boudoir photography, the trend  involves brides-to-be donning lingerie and being snapped by professional  photographers to create sexy photographs for their fiances.

For some, the photos are said to help satisfy  the sexual desires of their husbands who then have no reason to search for  internet porn later in their married life.

Lynn Michelle, a Dallas-based photographer,  told TheDaily.com that she snaps somewhere between 60 to 80 brides per  year.

‘A lotof women do boudoir because they’re  afraid their fiances are looking at porn and they’d rather them be looking at  her,’ she said.

Terilyn Brown ofJ’adore by  Achetype told MailOnline that she  caters for about two brides per month and has photographed brides as young as  24.

‘It’s really the ultimate gift from brides to  their fiance,’ she said. ‘We do all the styling on our own and include wardrobe  as part of their  shoot… there’s lots of consultation.’

Tasteful: While most photos remain demure, like the above which was snapped by Simply Bloom Photography based in Alabama, others can turn extremely risque as some brides dare to be different these days

Alabama-based company, Simply Bloom Photography,  also specialise in such work.

Priced from $1,000 per shoot, the work that  Ms Michelle conducts involves using much of the same type of props.

Brides often bring   veils, garters and wedding night lingerie to their photo shoots.

Sporting jerseys and business shirts have  also been worn by daring models in the past.

But the saucy trend is not limited to brides,  Ms Michelle added.

Women photographed in the  past have also  included military wives, divorcees who are longing to ‘get back in the game’ and  middle-aged women celebrating tummy tucks.

The photographer said: ‘I get a lot of  preachers’ wives bringing in blindfolds and thinking they’re the dirtiest things  ever. I had one woman order two albums – one for her husband and one for her  boyfriend.’

Kate McElwee, a Boston-based photographer,  who also offers boudoir services, said: ‘I had one girl whose husband was really into fishing  so she bought his waders and wore them and nothing else.’

‘I  knew that he could capture better photos if I was willing to let me guard  down’

New Jersey photographer Tony Yang often snaps  X-rated shoots.

‘I hate the words classy and tasteful,’ he  said. ‘People describe my work that way but being an artist, I don’t want to be  constrained. The whole point of the session is that it’s private. Why do you  have to hold back?’

He added that he plays Britney Spears music  when he is shooting women and he gives his subjects wine in order to help them  feel more relaxed while they are on shoot.

One of his New York-based clients, Allie, 29,  revealed that she got completely naked during her shoot.

‘I knew that he could capture better photos  if I was willing to let me guard down,’ she said.

Ms Michelle said usual reactions from  husbands involve ‘absolute silence followed by the word wow’.
