5 Important Questions to Ask Your Boudoir Photographer

Monday, August 18th, 2014

As a Utah boudoir photographer, I have had all sorts of questions asked by clients before or after a session is booked. These are my top five recommendations for questions to ask any boudoir photographer before you hire.

1. What locations do you use for the photo session?

Why you should ask: It is completely appropriate to find out where your boudoir photo session will take place. You want to feel comfortable and free in this setting. You may even ask to see the location in-person before signing a contract.

OpieFoto's Answer: We have two bedroom studios in a private home for the exclusive use of our clients. Our all-female staff will assist in all aspects of the photo production.

2. What should I wear?

Why you should ask: Experienced photographers have learned what types of clothing work best to create the perfect mood and visual aesthetic. Ask your photographer for some recommended guidelines for what to wear and what not to wear.

OpieFoto's Answer: I highly recommend that clients bring a variety of outfits, especially including a black lingerie set. Also, if your fiancé has given you any items of intimate wear, bring those. Additionally, I offer a selection of outfits and props that you can try out during your photo shoot. Sometimes trying something new results in the best photos!

3. Should I bring any photo props?

Why you should ask: Some items may be unsuitable for boudoir photo shoots, while others may be just right. Ask your photographer for prop recommendations.

OpieFoto's Answer: Definitely bring a few well-selected props that are telling of your personality and relationship with your fiancé. Unique items of jewelry, favorite books, his work shirt, and heels are just a few examples of what you could bring.

4. What poses will I be making?

Why you should ask: Some photographers may have a certain style or regular poses that you may or may not be comfortable with. Don't be afraid to ask, boudoir photographers are usually quite frank. You can also request to see examples from the photographer's portfolio to better understand his/her style.

OpieFoto's Answer: My goal is to create unique, sexy, flattering portraits for all women regardless of body type or age. There is no need to know how to pose, I will guide you through each pose and I know exactly which angles to capture that best exemplify the beautiful woman you are. And there will never be any pressure to reveal more skin than you are comfortable with.

5. How long before I see the photos?

Why you should ask: Each photographer offers different timelines for photo turn-around. It takes time to properly edit and retouch professional photos.

OpieFoto's Answer: There are two options for ordering copies of your boudoir session photos. 1.) After your session grab lunch or a snack and return to order your photos the same day in-studio! 2.) We will set up another date and time for you to come over and order your photos in the studio.

Jen wanted to do a boho outdoor boudoir session with a tent so I set up all her props in the backyard using my tree.  She drove all the way from Wyoming to do her boudoir session at the studio.  Check out her cute outfits.

Salt Lake City Utah Boudoir Photography

Boudoir by Opie specailizes in Boudoir, intimate, nude, art, sexy, burlesque, and pin-up. Now offering boudoir parties which are great bachelorette parties or birthday parties. I've been told by many women that they just can't seem to find a local Utah photographer that offers boudoir pictures. Well, look no further because you've just found the perfect gift for the man you love. I photograph all over Utah, including Salt Lake City, Bountiful, Logan, Provo, Tooele, Manti, Ogden, Park City, and everywhere in between. The word "boudoir" is French and means a ladies dressing room. The question is always brought up as to what you should wear for a boudoir session. Of course you should wear lingerie but you can also bring along a little black dress, sports jerseys, and even one of his shirts. This type of intimate photography is usually done as a gift for the man in your life. The best way to show case your boudoir pictures is with a custom designed sexy Boudoir Album. The sexy little Boudoir Album can be given to him on your wedding day, anniversary, valentines day, or his birthday. I shoot all of my boudoir sessions in a private setting at a nice hotel, your house, or my studio.
