Boudoir photography is a creative use of language to describe a style of photography, it can be taken to mean many things to different people, although the most common definition is ‘implied nude’. Many photographers are now offering Boudoir Photography with wide ranging interpretations of the style, from cheesy soft focused glamour photography to beyond the boundaries of good taste.
There are many styles of 'Boudoir', enough to cater for everyone's taste, but all should take the clients feelings as the guide. A Boudoir photographer should not place restrictions on what the client may want, they should embrace it and work with it.
If you have found our site there is a high probability that you are looking for Boudoir Photography and you will have seen many other sites along the way; either before us or after us; whilst we genuinely relish the competition, we do advise you to choose your photographer carefully. We hold some of our competition in high regard, these are the ones that have a genuine passion for the Boudoir style, others we fear are 'jumping on the bandwagon' and using less than appropriate techniques and settings along side an existing business model, if you want to show a little leg with a high key (white) background then just book at a local portrait studio, it's not Boudoir.
A very popular form of Boudoir Photography at the moment is 'Bridal Boudoir'. Many of our own clients have been 'brides to be', the idea being that the groom would receive an album of boudoir images on the morning of the wedding.
We advise you to have a chaperone at your boudoir shoot, be they a friend, a family member or a partner, this not only protects you, but also the photographer. There should never be an issue regarding the gender of your chosen chaperone, we have heard reports of some boudoir photographers being overly sexist regarding chaperones, our advice, go elsewhere, sexism should not be tolerated. The Naked Photographer is a male and female team who hold no such sexist views.
