Boudoir Louisville - Louisville's premier boudoir and pinup photography studio.
Specializing in classic boudoir and retro pinup girl photography in Louisville, Lexington, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Ft. Knox, Nashville and beyond!
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR FOR MY PHOTO SHOOT?
I always tell people to bring whatever outfits they feel sexy in! If your shoot includes 5 outfit changes, maybe bring an extra just in case you change your mind on one. No need to bring your whole closet..
Lots of lingerie, cute bras and panties etc... Don't forget those high heels. The higher the better. Heels elongate the legs and make that bottom look fantabulous!
Also, if your special someone is a sports fan be sure to bring his jersey to pose in! There are a lot of things that could work. Maybe one of his favorite dress shirts and a tie? Is he a Military man? Bring his uniform jacket and dog tags.
WHY DO I WANT TO DO THIS?
Because you are gorgeous! A Boudoir or Pinup shoot makes the perfect wedding gift for your Hubby to be. Boudoir pictures are a great send off gift for your special man that is being deployed. We have had SEVERAL girls book with us just for themselves. It is a HUGE confidence builder and loads of fun! Christmas, Valentines day, Anniversaries etc... Is there a bad time to receive something like this?
DO YOU PROVIDE HAIR AND MAKEUP?
Hair and makeup are both included in the shooting price for all packages EXCEPT the Tart. We know how to make you look your best for the studio lighting etc...
If you want to take care of your own hair and makeup, email us for rates.
CAN I BRING A FRIEND?
I always encourage the client to bring a girlfriend with them to the shoot. Girlfriends are awesome for getting you laughing during the shoot. Also, if your girlfriend would like to shoot the same day, I'll give you a big discount! Leave the guys at home! Yes, this includes husbands and boyfriends. They don't need to see behind the scenes, it ruins the "magic"...
WHAT DO I GET FOR MY MONEY?
You will receive expertly retouched and edited photos delivered in a private password protected online gallery. We also include a hard cover leather bound book with most packages as well. Give our pricing page a look to see what is included with each package. We have prints, discs etc... available as well.
CAN I MIX BOUDOIR AND PINUP STYLES?
Sure! Most clients we shoot want some of both styles. No extra charge!
DO YOU PROVIDE WARDROBE?
Nope! I could not imagine trying to shop for hundreds of women. I have a hard enough time shopping for my wife! There are just way too many sizes and styles to stay current. Not to mention, it would be a little creepy if we asked you to put lingerie on that dozens of women wore the week before. OK, the real reason,
I hate doing laundry!
CAN I SCHEDULE A PRE-SHOOT CONSULTATION?
If you feel this is a must, we can certainly accommodate you. My assistant, Britt, is available via phone to chat about your upcoming shoot. She is fantastic with outfit selection and can let you know exactly where to shop for your shoot. If you want to come into the studio, we charge a flat fee of $100. Come in, get to know us and have a look around. We can plan your whole shoot so there will be no surprises.
DO YOU OFFER ANY DISCOUNTS?
We do! Bring a girlfriend!
If she books a shoot with me the same day as your shoot, you each save BIG!
HOW LONG IS A SHOOT?
A typical shoot will last anywhere from 1-3 hours after hair and makeup are finished. This depends upon the package you booked. I'm not sitting there with a stopwatch... Depending upon the girl, we might be able to wrap this up quicker. I NEVER want it to feel rushed.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO THE SHOOT?
I always tell clients to bring whatever makes them comfortable to the shoot.
Bring a girlfriend with you that will be fun and supportive. Someone that can get you laughing! Also bring your ipod or mp3 player with you. I have music in the studio, but can not guarantee you will like it!
I have a fridge chocked full of drinks. If you want any "Adult Beverages", you will need to bring those with you.
I have a bunch of props, but if you have something you are specifically wanting to use, bring it. Some girls will bring their hubby's favorite golf club, his favorite sports jersey and a football etc...
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET MY PICS?
Normally, I have the pics edited and retouched within 48 hours. Then, you go through and pick out the photos you want for the book. The book takes no more than 3-4 business days to lay out and print. The short answer? One week after our shoot you should have everything. Many times, quicker. If you are unsure on delivery times, feel free to contact us.
HOW MANY PICS ARE INCLUDED IN THE BOOK?
All of our custom printed hard cover books include 20 photographs of your choice. We do offer a 30 image custom printed hard cover book as well for an additional charge.
WHAT IF I HAVE A BLEMISH? DO YOU RETOUCH?
You bet I do! I try not to over do it though. Some editors really make you look creepy and kooky. I make sure everything looks natural. We do not believe in reshaping a person. Instead, we try to get everything right while shooting by using the most flattering poses and lighting for each client. If there are areas that need retouching, we always take care of those.
WILL MY PICTURES BE USED ON YOUR FACEBOOK PAGE, BLOG OR WEBSITE?
We will not post any images from your photo shoot that include your whole face or any other recognizable markings (tattoos, scars, birthmarks etc...) We would LOVE to show off your face, but will not do that without your permission. Discretion is key!
WHERE DO WE SHOOT?
Normally, we shoot in my studio. I am located in the Highlands area of Louisville at 414 Baxter Ave. I have a very comfortable 4500 square foot space. Combination client lounge / shooting studio. I have also shot in luxury hotels as well as client homes. It is about making you comfortable.
I DON'T LIVE IN LOUISVILLE, DO YOU TRAVEL?
I do travel, but additional fees will apply. With my Louisville studio, I am not too far away from Lexington, Cincinnati, Columbus, Nashville and Indianapolis. We love to pack up and head out of town. If you arrange for 5 girls to book photo shoots with us in your town, we will fly, drive or swim to your area. For helping us book the 5 girls, YOUR shoot is 100% FREE!
HEY, AREN'T YOU A GUY?
Yes, I am a guy! I do have a female assistant that takes care of all the posing and primping and such. Between the two of us, we make sure you look great and are super comfortable throughout your visit with us.
*If you still have questions, please send me an email or give us a call. We can also arrange for a meeting at our studio as well.
