Boudoir photographer Wakefield: Boudoir photography is all the rage just now, either as a special wedding day gift from the bride to her husband-to-be, a special anniversary or birthday present or just as a gorgeous keepsake that can be treasured and looked at for years to come. My ‘Secretly Gorgeous’ boudoir shoots will meet all your expectations of what a boudoir shoot is all about – you! The images are all created on location, in your home, or in my spacious studio where there are a variety of props such as cracked leather settees, wing-backed chairs, elegant mirrors and chaise loungue – there’s nothing like reclining on a chaise loungue to make you feel like a Hollywood star! And don’t worry if you’ve never been in front of a camera before, I am a very experienced photographer and you will find yourself completely at ease as I guide you through the shoot, suggesting poses and using moody lighting to create a series of sensual images that will show you at your very best. Don’t be nervous about being photographed by a man either, you’ll find it’s all very relaxed, informal and fun and you’ll soon be at your ease! You can always pop down to the studio for a coffee and a chat to discuss your ideas with me before committing to a shoot. That way, you’ll be able to get a feel for the whole shebang.
Who should do a boudoir shoot?
Anyone! Boudoir is not just for the young brides – ladies in their 30s, 40s and 50s are wanting boudoir shoots more and more. The general feeling is that you’re all still young at heart and want to capture some beautiful, sensual images that will last forever! Don’t forget, couples can do boudoir too, so why not join your partner in a gorgeous romantic shoot?
What does a boudoir shoot include?
I believe in giving the best quality and value for money without compromise. That’s why every boudoir shoot lasts for around 2-3 hours and will include a variety of props and backdrops and unlimited changes of outfits. Unlike most boudoir photographers I don’t limit you to just one change of outfit and, whatever package you choose, you will come away with some sumptuous hand finished prints without having to buy them as an addition at extortionate prices!
What should I bring to a boudoir shoot?
Lots of underwear, the more the better. Corsets, bustiers, bra & pants sets, stockings, high heels (a must!), men’s shirts, baby dolls – anything in which you feel comfortable and sensual and would like to be photographed in. The whole definition of boudoir is to be sexy, moody sultry and without crossing the boundary into nudity or glamour.
What about my imperfections?
Hey! Few of us are perfect but fortunately, I am a master in photo editing! All the pictures you choose will be retouched and enhanced to bring out the best of you. I guarantee though, I will do this subtly and without using whacky filters, OTT skin softening or massive changes to your appearance. The photos will still be you, but on a really good day!
How much does it cost?
Prices start at just £150 and all of the boudoir packages available include the following:
● 2-3hrs in the studio with as many changes of clothes as you wish
