So you’ve been tossing around the idea of having a boudoir session… (First of all, HELL YES! So exciting!) You’ve found a few photographers in the area and started really looking at their photos… But how do you choose the right boudoir photographer for you?
Here are a few questions I want you to ask yourself before you book your Boudoir-grapher:
1. Do you LOVE their work?
The photographer you choose has to have that little something special that grabs your attention and makes you want to see more of their work. Be sure to always follow your potential boudoir-graphers social media pages and look at their website to see their work, products they offer and look over pricing. Ask yourself, Do I like their style of photography, the way they edit their pictures and the products that they offer? Is their style represented throughout all of their social media? Is it consistent?
Choose someone you’re *obsessed* with!
2. Do you feel a CONNECTION with the photographer?
This is very important, almost more important than pricing!
Does the photographer you are thinking of have an introduction of themselves on their website or social media? Are you able to see any photos of them? Maybe some behind the scenes footage? Do you feel as though they are speaking directly to you with their messages/posts online?
These are all very important things to consider, I say that because you want to feel as comfortable as you can with your photographer because you will be the one stripping down for the camera. You definitely want a Boudoir-grapher who will cheer you on the entire time and make you feel as though you are one of their very best friends… hell yes babe!
3. What do you GET for your money?
I am sure by know you know all too well that there are so many different pricing breakdowns by each and every studio you’ve looked at – and this is because what works for me, may not work for another photographer and big cities vs. small towns play a part in this as well. Most if not all Boudoir studios have a set session fee, so when booking your Boudoir Experience make sure you check what all is included in the session fee you are paying!
These session fees might seem like a small amount of money but don’t get too caught up in that as most Boudoir studios don’t include products of any sort in that initial fee. You’re investing in their studio, hair and makeup artist crew and their time creating beautiful artwork with you! And always, always, always ask questions! This is a big investment in yourself and I would never want you to get the wrong idea or information in regards to your session.
I truly hope that this helps in your decision in finding your perfect Boudoir-grapher! If you have any questions, we’d love to help you!
