Looking for a boudoir photographer but want a good deal? There are just certain things you shouldn’t price shop ― a good bra, a tattoo artist, and a boudoir photographer. In the movie Armageddon, Steve Buschemi’s character has a sobering quote about the rocket ship. “You realize we're sitting on 45,000 pounds of fuel, on a nuclear warhead built by the lowest bidder?” While you may not be purchasing a rocket, would you price shop on other things equally as important?
Our Lafayette studio gets several inquiries about what our “cheapest” package is. We understand and appreciate a good deal as much as anyone. But when you’re standing nude in front of a stranger and being vulnerable, is CHEAP a word you really want to use to describe this experience or the professional you hired?
“This was the best experience I have had with a photo shoot. I can't not express the confidence that April gave me to do the shoot. The whole experience was comfortable and empowering.” - Sammy B
The true cost of a professional artist
Boudoir photography is so much more than putting on some lingerie, arching your back and making pouty faces. It involves someone you can trust to make you feel sexy and comfortable. We understand that you may only do a boudoir shoot once in your lifetime. Make an investment in work you know will be hot! A great boudoir photographer should have skill, training, years of experience, great equipment, an artistic vision and loads of professionalism. This is what you are paying for.
Your confidence is in our hands
You’re trusting a photographer with your self-esteem. Because of that, never choose a photographer based on price alone. Investing in a quality boudoir photographer will give you the peace of mind that they will take your self-esteem very seriously. These are special, intimate and personal photos that are meant to compliment your beauty. Invest in someone who matches your style and personality. The last thing you want are photographs of yourself emphasizing an insecurity or leaving you feel less than stellar. Bad photos will mess with your self-confidence, and you’ll end up doing more damage than good. Some women have booked with us after having a bad experience with a “cheap” photographer and ended up spending more money in the long run.
We take privacy seriously
An important thing to consider is privacy! Many clients come in who want their identity protected, and that’s completely understandable! These photos are personal and intimate by nature, and you want to trust your photographer. Someone who is less experienced may not even think about whether you want to be part of their portfolio and they may not even bother to ask. Privacy is something we take very seriously. A true professional will never use your images without your permission nor have your name associated with your photos, unless of course, that's what you want!
