HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BOOK MY BOUDOIR PHOTO SHOOT?
We recommend that you book your appointment at least 6 weeks in advance in order to secure your desired time slot. A $349 retainer is required at the time of scheduling to book your studio time and date.
WHAT IF I DON’T KNOW HOW TO POSE?
One of the main concerns many women have is “I don’t know how to pose.” Rest assured – I don’t expect you to know what to do. That’s my job! I will be shooting one-on-one with you from start to finish, encouraging you, helping you to pose and guiding you the entire time. I will direct you from the tips of your fingers to the points of your toes. As one of the best photographers in Okanagan Valley BC, I pride myself on bringing out the best in each and every client in order to showcase their personality and highlight their features.
CAN I REQUEST PROFESSIONAL MAKE-UP AND HAIR FOR MY BOUDOIR PHOTO SHOOT?
We have an amazing make-up artist and hair stylist on our team, and we will make you look (and feel) truly beautiful.
WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?
$349 Retainer is not refundable in case of cancellation. If you need to reschedule, another $349 session fee will be required to secure a new date.
WHERE WILL MY BOUDOIR PHOTO SHOOT TAKE PLACE?
Our studio is located in Vernon BC. Our clients usually come to our large studio, featuring beautiful boudoir sets, backdrops, and props. The set-up at our studio easily allows us to customize a look that is perfect for you and your needs. You can also choose an offsite location, such as your home or a hotel. (Offsite locations must be within a 40- minute drive from Vernon BC, and are subject to an additional fee of $500).
CAN YOU PROVIDE OUTFITS FOR MY BOUDOIR SHOOT?
We have some outfits, props, and jewellery at our studio, but do keep in mind that the selection is limited. We recommend that you bring your own outfit changes. Sexy lingerie, bras, panties, stockings, and heels are a great choice, but a button down shirt and tie or his favorite team jersey can be sexy, too! We are happy to help you select the outfits that will work best with your look and the background that you choose. If you are having trouble finding the right outfit for your boudoir shoot, or you need something new and are not sure where to shop, let us know! We will gladly suggest to you some of our favourite lingerie stores.
HOW MUCH SKIN WILL I BE EXPECTED TO SHOW? WHAT STYLE OF BOUDOIR SHOTS DO YOU TAKE?
How much skin you show is entirely up to you. You have full control over how much you do (or do not) show off in your boudoir shoot. If you do not want to show a lot of skin, we also offer sexy glamour photography. Your photographs will look like an image straight out of Vogue magazine. Whatever style you choose, you can be as provocative or modest as you like. This is all about making you feel comfortable, sexy, and happy with the end result!
DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH WOMEN OF ALL AGES (EVEN THOSE OF US WHO ARE NOT 20-YEAR-OLD MODELS)?
Whether you’re 20 or 60, our glamour boudoir shoot will bring out your inner diva and make you look HOT. Marina will work with you step-by-step, helping you strike the right poses, and move your body to capture the perfect photo.
WILL MY BOUDOIR PHOTOS BE RETOUCHED TO HIDE IMPERFECTIONS LIKE STRETCH MARKS AND BLEMISHES?
Yes! We will start by posing you properly to hide anything you do not want to show, and our magazine-quality lighting will also help hide any wrinkles, blemishes, spots, or bruises from the camera. Anything that does get through can be addressed with our professional glamour retouching. With that process, we will smooth your skin, remove stray hairs and help you lose a digital pound or two. You will look sexy, glamorous and most important, like a real woman. Our goal is to bring out the beauty that is already there and keep you looking natural and fresh, not like a plastic doll.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE MY BOUDOIR PHOTOS?
Your digital images will be provided to you as soon as the edits are completed, which usually takes up to two weeks for the edited images to be ready. This is just an estimate, and most of the time you will have them sooner. If you need your portraits within 24 hours, you can include rush processing for an additional fee of $300.
WHAT BOUDOIR PHOTOS PRODUCTS CAN I PURCHASE?
All our packages include both digital copies of the images and physical products. You choose how you want to showcase your beautiful images. We offer Albums, Canvas, Metal Prints, Acrylic Blocks, View Finders and Prints.
I DO NOT WANT MY PHOTOS TO END UP ONLINE. WILL YOU POST MY PHOTOS ON YOUR WEBSITE OR BLOG?
Your privacy is VERY important to us. We will never use your images online or in any other forum without your permission and a signed model release. You can pick and choose the ones you want to keep private, or just keep them all to yourself. It is totally up to you, and your comfort level.
