Finding the right boudoir photographer is a lot like dating. You search for a significant other that has the same values, interests, and lifestyle as you do and there are bound to be a few flops along the journey. But if you’re really lucky, you’ll form a connection with the right partner, or in this case the right photographer, who gives you butterflies in your stomach and makes you feel like the luckiest woman in the world.
You’ll know you’ve found the right boudoir photographer for you when you feel totally comfortable throughout the entire process—from your initial consultation until you’re holding your finished artwork in your hands. There’s definitely no one-size-fits-all when it comes to finding your perfect boudoir match. You’ll want to look for someone who aligns with your style in terms of outfits, lighting, posing, retouching, and much more.
So what can you do to ensure you’ve found your boudoir soulmate? Ask the right questions! Check out the seven questions you don’t want to skip when searching for the perfect boudoir photographer!
Just because someone can take a cute selfie doesn’t mean they know the ins and outs of boudoir. A professional boudoir photographer will be knowledgeable when it comes to the perfect outfits, poses, and lighting to make you look sexy and beautiful. Professional boudoir photographers spend years perfecting their craft and continually learn new skills and techniques that we utilize to make your session the very best it can be.
This question is so important to ask because not every boudoir photographer will match your personal style. Some clients are looking for whimsical feminine shots, while others are on the hunt for dark and moody photos. At Jewel Boudoir Photography, our sessions are unique because they take place in a converted grain bin and other various locations around my farm. I love to use fun props like smoke bombs, angel wings and even shots of you sitting on a motorcycle!
A boudoir session is all about making you look and feel your best, so we get right to work! Your day starts with my professional glam squad doing your hair and make up just the way you want. I offer a wardrobe consultation so that we can choose the best outfits to make you look your sexiest. Plus, I’ll coach you through your entire session so that the end result is a gallery of photos you’ll treasure forever!
Be sure to ask this question since every boudoir photographer has a different process and it’s important to know what to expect. When the day of your Jewel Boudoir Photography shoot arrives you’ll begin with professional hair and make up services plus a wardrobe consultation. We’ll shoot for 60-90 minutes, take a break so I can prep your gallery, and then you’ll be able to view and order your artwork the very same day!
Personally, I do retouch images for my clients, but not every photographer does, so this question is critical if you’re hoping for flawless photos. I can make your tan line disappear or smooth your skin, but what I won’t do is edit your body. You’re beautiful as you are and we’re here to celebrate that! Although it would be nice to turn into a runway model for your boudoir session, my advice is to find a photographer that has the know-how to pose you in such a way that highlights the most beautiful aspects of your body.
As much as I’d love to show everyone how sexy you look, I’ll only do so with your explicit permission. Any photos you see are because clients have signed a release form. If a boudoir photographer can’t promise you the same, keep looking.
A boudoir session is an investment in yourself and is worth every single penny, but it is a significant cost. Many boudoir photographers, like myself, offer payment plans so that you can give yourself the experience you deserve without any of the guilt. Make sure to get the details before you book. At Jewel Boudoir Photography, we partner with a local finance company to make financing your shoot a breeze. If financing isn’t an options, we also offer pre-payment plans. Wonderful thing about Jewel Boudoir is that we book out for the entire year, you can book out a little further and start paying for your session in advance so by the time of your shoot you can worry less, and play more!
Finding the right boudoir photographer doesn’t have to be a hard process! As you’re doing your research, be sure to get the answers to these questions so that you can determine which photographer is the best fit for your boudoir vision.
