So, you’re thinking about booking a boudoir photo session? Congratulations!
It’s a great way to celebrate your beauty and femininity. However, choosing the right photographer is essential to ensuring that you have a safe, fun, and sexy experience. This person will be with you during some very intimate moments, so it’s crucial that you feel safe and comfortable with them. Read on for tips on choosing the right boudoir photographer for you and what to look for in order to have a positive experience.
I. Set up a consultation with the photographer before you book
The first step is to have a consultation with your photographer. This gives you a chance to get to know them and make sure that you feel comfortable around them. They should be willing to listen to your concerns and answer any questions that you have. This is also where you will get a feel for what the experience is going to look like and if this photographer/experience will be a good fit for you.
II. Make sure you like their style
Before choosing a boudoir photographer, make sure you vibe with their style of shooting and editing beforehand. Find a photographer whose work you adore. This will ensure that you have a fun, sexy session with photos you’ll love!
III. Make sure they are willing to listen to you
Your photographer should be respectful of your boundaries and never push you beyond what feels safe for you. They should ensure your privacy and security at all times. If you don’t feel comfortable with something, make sure to communicate that to them. They should be willing to work with you to create a safe and comfortable environment.
IV. What type of experience are you paying for?
When choosing a boudoir photographer, it’s important to know you are getting a full experience out of your day. Do they include hair and makeup? Do they have a client closet that you can choose outfits from? Can they help you find what lingerie compliments your body best? Do they offer anything else special to add to your experience? This is an investment, so you want to make sure that you’re hiring someone who will produce beautiful photos that you’ll cherish forever while also providing an unforgettable experience.
V. Is hair and makeup included?
Most professional boudoir photographers include hair and makeup in their packages. However, if this isn’t the case, you will want to factor it into your budget. This is a crucial part of the boudoir experience, as it can completely change your look and feel for the better. Trust us, you’ll love how you look in those photos!
VI. Make sure to read reviews before booking
It’s always a good idea to read reviews from their past clients before booking with a photographer. This will give you an idea of what to expect and if previous clients have had a positive experience. You don’t want any surprises on the day of your shoot!

VII. What kind of products do they offer?
When you receive your photos, you’ll probably want to have them in a beautiful album or frame that you can display with pride. I mean look at you! You’re a goddess that deserves to be showcased! So make sure to ask your photographer what kind of products they offer. Do they have high-quality albums? Wall prints? What is all included in the package that you are looking to choose? Do they offer digital files? And what is the turnaround time for receiving your final product?
