My boyfriend makes me feel sexy so I decided to do something sexy for him for his b-day.  I had SOOOO much doing this shoot that descriptive words would not do it justice!  Ryan and Britt were very professional and super fun and made me feel right at home!  Before I knew it, I was transformed in hair in make-up, and once I got behind the camera they brought a woman out of me I didn't know existed!  Hell, we already planned my return photo shoot before I walked out the door (because I WILL go back)!  If you have been thinking about doing boudoir or pin-up style photos, stop looking, and book your appointment with these folks TODAY!  You will not be disappointed from the start to the finished product - you.  X's and O' faces, D

I had the chance to work with Ryan near Harrisburg Pa and what a pleasure it was! I spent the better part of the day in a vintage soda shop with Ryan and his assistant running around and taking amazing photos. I had my reservations before I arrived as I am a makeup artist and do not let ANYONE touch my face. However, Britt did such a fabulous job and was so at ease that I was put under her spell instantly! Her hair and makeup skills are impeccable.
I felt transformed, beautiful and taken care of by 2 pro's of their industry. I would say that every gal out there that wants to give their man a wonderful and unique gift call up Ryan and book  a shoot. You wont regret it!!

I was finally able to open my book, as it had been shipped to my grandparents so it was kept secret, and I just wanted to tell you guys how much I LOVED it!! The final product was even more than I was expecting and definitely awesome! I love the detailed pages you put with the pictures and the matte finish with a tad bit of sparkle! Sadly, it's time to put it away in safe keeping so I am not tempted to give it to him before August! I assure you that I will sneak it out from time to time to remind myself of how awesome it is!! Just wanted to say thanks again for great work!!

I guess you could say I've never liked having my picture taken. I'm short and curvy and I always feel nervous around a camera, but when I came to Boudoir Louisville I felt completely comfortable. My normal always-tripping, nerdy self got to be sexy and confident for a few hours! I didn't really have to think about anything at all. Brit and Ryan told me how to pose, where to look and what to wear in order to get the most flattering pics. Brit's makeup skills are fabulous and she def. knows how to make you look sexy. If you're waiting to lose weight before you come, don't let it stop you. I gained 5 pounds (oops...damn cookies) in the weeks before my shoot, but I def. didn't see those lbs on film. 

Ryan had the pictures back to me in less than 24 hours and now I'm trying to keep myself from showing my fiance early... just need to wait a few more weeks to give it to him as a wedding present! The quality of the pics are top notch, the atmosphere of Boudoir Louisville is friendly and real, and Ryan's editing skills are superb. If you're considering getting boudoir or pin up pics taken, DO IT!

Elise
I absolutely loved my experience at Boudoir Louisville. Ryan and Brittany made me feel like a model and like they knew me forever. I felt very comfortable in the studio instantly. Its an experience well worth the money and was so much fun. I would recommend it to anyone. And my boyfriend absolutely loves the turn out of the pictures!! I'm likely to do it again!

Sarah
I had been wanting to get pictures made for my fiance as  his wedding gift for months, and in my search online, I stumbled across Boudoir Louisville. As someone who has always been self-conscious, I was nervous! However, the instant I walked into the studio I felt comfortable. (Guess I must have been "batty" to feel that way!) Britt did the most beautiful hair and make-up job I've ever seen in my life. I felt like Marilyn and was so sad when I had to take my hair down and wash my face that night. Ryan and Britt both offer help with poses and truly know how to make a girl look her best. I have never felt more beautiful as I did during my shoot. Then, Ryan had my online gallery posted less than 24 hours afterwards! I can't say enough good things about Ryan and Britt. They are both amazing at what they do and I'm already trying to come up with an excuse to go have more pin-up pictures made!

Marie
Ryan and Brittany -  Thank you so much for turning me into a bona fide Pin-Up Girl.  People keep telling me that 1. That's not you Marie and 2. Marie - Oh my gosh! You look fabulous.  So obviously y'all did a fantastic job!  My fiance really likes the pictures, but he especially loves the Boudoir ones. :) I keep telling my friends that they need to look y'all up to get the glamorous treatment because that's definitely what they'll get at one of your photo shoots!

Emily
With my wedding only coming up a month away I found Boudoir Louisville online and loved them from the start. I booked my session and was totally ecstatic. I was nervous at first but Britt and Ryan made me feel comfortable really fast. Britt did an excellent job on my makeup and hair and gave me great pointers when I was shooting!When I saw my photos for the first time my jaw dropped I didn't think I could ever look like that. My (now husband) absolutely loved the book he said it was the best present anyone could ever give and that Ryan and Britt did a great job!! His Favorite was the football wear.I don't think I had a single bad photo. Can't wait for all my girls to come here and also book my next shoot!! Thank you once again you guys are the best!!!


Taylor
I wanted to have boudoir pictures taken for a long time but did not know of a place that would take them.  I friend of mine had pin up pictures taken by Ryan and posted them on Facebook.  She had several comments about the pictures.   I immediately went to the link and said that is where I am going… even if it is a four hour drive.   From the moment I stepped in the studio I felt comfortable; Ryan and Britt were wonderful.  I have never felt as beautiful or sexy as I did that day.  I am having a difficult time selecting my pictures because they are all great!!!!  Thanks so much to Ryan and Britt!!!!

Jama
I was preparing for my wedding, I had never heard if Boudoir photos. So, I looked it up on-line. To my surprise this was a tasteful, sexy gift! The search was then on for a location/photographer. I am from southeastern IN and found Louisville Boudoir online. the packages were reasonable in price, Brit was helpful when selecting my attire and Ryan was quick with turn around! I walked in nervous and within 1 minute I was relaxed. Brit and Ryan welcomed me, talked about my story and began the process of hair and make-up. They both made me laugh and when I left I instantly called friends planning there trip to the studio.

Sara Martin
I felt so pampered at Boudoir Louisville. Britt and Ryan are amazing. The studio offers so many different settings and they know how to pose you so that you look your best. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to do a pinup/boudoir shoot. I can't wait to do another one.

Sarah
I just received the link to my online gallery of photos and am so impressed with how well the pictures turned out! Ryan and Brittany were great to work with. Brittany made me feel really comfortable and did a beautiful job with my hair and makeup. Ryan was so easy to work with. When we began I was nervous and afraid I would not pose well; but Ryan gave me direction and was really accommodating to someone who has no experience in front of a camera. I will definitely tell my friends about Boudoir Louisville. And I plan on using them again!

Kelly
I've been thinking about having boudoir photos taken for years, but I was always too afraid to try it out. I finally got up the courage, and I'm so glad that I did! It was an amazing experience & the pictures came out beautifully! My hair & makeup looked great (it was fun being pampered before the shoot began!), and Ryan did a fabulous job directing me on how to pose. I felt completely relaxed and at ease, and I'm absolutely thrilled with my pictures! I highly recommend contacting Ryan if you're even considering boudoir photos.

Sydney
Both of you are absolutely wonderful and too much fun to be around! I enjoyed every minute of my session last week. The two of you made me feel very at ease. Since "modeling" is not my full or part time gig (wink), photo shoots can sometime be awkward however, the two of you were helpful with facial expressions, leg positioning, and even wardrobe assistance. My boyfriend and were extremely pleased with the final photos, they were so good in fact, i could hardly believe that was me!!!! (mad props to Ms. Brittany for hair and make). 
Your talents are noteworthy of praise and your services appreciated.
Thank you for everything, can't wait to get in the studio with you again!

Belle Bell
Boudoir Louisville is just freaking awesome. I had the BEST experience here! I booked a shoot just for myself, and I couldn't be happier with it! Ryan is SUCH an intelligent, brilliant photographer and he makes you feel right at home. Brittany styles like nobody's business. I couldn't have felt sexier or more pin-up worthy! I had such an amazing time and was so happy with how the shots turned out, that I am definitely doing another one! Whether it's for a special someone, or just for yourself, it's money WELL spent!

Monica
Just wanted to let you know that I got my book yesterday and its amazing!!! 
We had such a fun time doing the photo shoot. I was a bit nervous at first but by the end of the first scene I was really feeling great! A big thanks to Britt for making my hair and makeup so kick ass! You were great at helping me get everything looking great from hair to outfits! 
I totally recommend getting the Double Trouble. It was so much fun having a friend doing the same type of thing as you, not to mention having someone there to make ya laugh!

Lea
I'm going to keep this short and sweet. You and Britt are THE SHIT (you can just put AMAZING if cussing isn't permitted, haha)!! And people would be missing out if they don't book a photo session with you guys! Thank you again for being so amazing at your job. The photos turned out better than I could have ever imagined and I only have you two to thank for that! Oh, and this can be my contract .. Brittany, I will DEFINITELY return when my hair grows back out so you can do all your awesome long hair styles. Chances are, though, I'll be back before that happens! Keep up the good work, and you I will be telling all my friends about y'all. Peace and love!!

Jennifer
I just wanted to let you know that I received the album today. I couldn't be happier with the final product. Thanks again for everything; you'll get nothing but wonderful referrals from me. Best of luck in all your future ventures!

 Dawn
Ryan- I got the book today and was so excited that I gave Michael his wedding gift early.  He LOVED it and was so surprised that I did it.  He is going to look through some of the photos and see if he wants any others.  Again, thank you!!! I am so happy that I found you all.

Meridth
OK, it was hard but we have our 20! My Husband LOVES THEM!  I think 19 is one of our favorites but also I am so impressed on how the UK ones turned out. And of course my husband loves the Army ones. You all were awesome to work with.  I hope to see you again if I can get my sister in law to do a session!

From a satisfied Hubby
Lisa and I wanted to drop you both a quick note to say THANK YOU for an outstanding shoot and experience at Boudoir Louisville last Friday!

She had an amazing time and we talked about the session the entire weekend!  Thank you both for making her feel so beautiful and for creating a place and a vibe that allows her and others to safely and creatively express it! 

We can’t wait for another opportunity to work together down the road.  Your artistry and professionalism are truly a pleasure to be associated with.
 Very excited to see the online gallery…..and we will be in touch soon after, I’m sure.
 Thanks again ….proud to count both of you as new friends and colleagues!   

Ashley
Hey Ryan, I just wanted to shoot you and email to give y'all a great review, i just got my pictures today and they look awesome!!! I had such a blast!!!! You guys are amazing and the pictures look fantastic! It was so much fun and i cannot wait to book my next appointment, i'm thinking all pinup for next time. Thanks again!!

Courtney
Wanted to start off with I LOOOVVEE the pictures, I'm still not able to pick a favorite, they look great. I've been going through them all day, trying to pick out 20 for the book :) even made a special trip to the salon I work at to show the ladies and brag (just so they could see what they missed out on). They are super jealous of everything, and have all the info they need to book, so it's only a matter of time.
Even though I was extremely quiet and shy the whole time I enjoyed every minute, and absolutely can't wait to book my next session :) and maybe next time I wont be so nervous. You and Britt are amazing at what you do!
Thank you again for everything. Extremely pleased with the results, and had fun in the process. Will be giving everyone your info any chance I get :)

Roxy
Thanks to you and Brittany for a FANTASTIC shoot yesterday…we both left
saying it was money well spent!
We left feeling on top of the world – what a great way to celebrate my
friend’s milestone birthday!
Beyond that, you two taught me a few things about letting go and trusting
in the situation...

Tracy
Thanks for making my day, week, month, or even year with the photos and the photo shoot. You and Brittany have such a natural ability to make your customers feel comfortable both with you and in front of the camera.  My husband was thrilled with the pictures and we have a very hard time choosing our favorites!
From a very satisfied client,
Tracy

Bobbi
They're amazing! I can't wait till I come back for more pinup images! That was so much fun!
Thank you guys for the amazing time, I know he will love them.

 
Katie
You and Brit were wonderful, and I really enjoyed working with you both. Brit did an amazing job on my hair and make-up.  I was a bit anxious at first, but I never thought I'd be half naked in front of two people I had just met and feel both sexy and confident!  Loved that the proofs came back so quickly, just wish I had an easier time choosing my favorites!  It really was an incredible experience, and I'm pretty sure I'll be a repeat customer. 

Gretchen
I love them all!!! You all did a wonderful job and I am really excited to give them to him!! Let Brittney know that she was glorious and made the entire session very comfortable. Also, My Fiance couldn't stop complimenting my hair. (He thought I did it...as if I was that talented ?!?) He couldn't keep his hands off of me because of it....so Brittney has quite the eye on how to get people laid...haha. 

Sarah
I apologize that this is so delayed, but I wanted to tell you that I really enjoyed shooting and working with you. I also loved the pictures (as did my husband!). Thank you so much! I have been passing on your info as well, as it was such a great experience.

Jennifer
I absolutely LOVED the pics. Now that I know I got the correct email, I'll brag on you for a bit! You guys rocked! I was sooooo nervous but as the day went on, you both really know how to make someone feel at ease! And your gift for photography is definitely your calling. Hopefully next time I won't be so nervous and difficult! I've already told so many people about you guys....and even caught one co-worker checking out your website! ;-) Thanks for all you did!
I'm want the DVD as well. As much as I would love a book, I'm still having a hard time deciding on which photographs, even now I still go through the gallery trying to decide. They are all so wonderful!

Anne
Hi Ryan, Thanks for getting back with me. I'm sure he will love the book. He is very excited. You did such a great job.


Jamie
Extremely talented professional photographer and staff. Easy to work with, and the quality was better then I could have ever imagined. I have never felt so sexy and confident.. I walked in feeling like an ordinary girl and left there feeling like a Super model. Best confidence booster you can find. Its more like confidence therapy I really don't think "Dr. Phil" could of helped me find myself better then these guys did!!! Thank you so much Ryan & Brittany you guys are wonderful!!

Toni
They love what they do and the proof of how passionate they are about their work shows not only in the finished product but throughout the entire process. I laughed the entire way through and the photos - wow, I actually have pics of myself that I like. Ryan and Brittany are rock stars. Thank you so much!!

Eileen
The best ever! Thank you for making my husband's birthday gift so personal and special. Ryan is an amazing photographer and so talented. They transform you glamoursly while still looking like yourself. Brit styles so well and works to pose and accessorize you perfectly. If you are thinking about this, just do it, they are totally worth it

Megan
SO AMAZING! Ryan and Brit were both AMAZING! From the hair and makeup to the coaching and actually shots, incredible! It was SO much fun, laid back, and professional all at the same time! I can't wait to go back!

Kat
This was one of the greatest experiences I've ever had! So much fun! Having two little ones (the youngest not even a year yet) I was very self-concious about my new "mom bod" but Ryan and Britt made me super comfortable and knew how to pose me to hide all of my insecure areas. Hair and makeup was amazing and once I saw my hair and makeup all of my nerves went away and my pinup girl alter ego set in! Ryan and Britt were SO much fun and very professional at the same time, I didn't want to leave! My hubby's going to be SO shocked when he gets this surprise when he gets home from deployment in a few weeks! Everyone should visit Boudoir Louisville!

Tabitha
Thank you soooo much for taking such gorgeous pictures! Ryan the pictures are absolutely amazing and you crack me up man I tell ya... Brittany Thank you for the Beautiful make-up and hair...Also for making me laugh and feel comfortable, plus the tips on posing..Your guidance helped a great deal! Talking about Ryan's ear hair really helped hahaha (Sorry Ryan I had to) But over all you all did a great job you have a wonderful business going here and I will spread the Word!!! Ill be down for Beatersville Fo Sho....Best ~Tabitha~

Wendy
AMAZING! I had so much fun! I was nervous walking in but within moments I felt totally at ease thanks to Brittany and Ryan. You guys really are amazing and I am telling EVERYONE I know! Oh, my pics are absolutely fabulous too:) I will definitely be a repeat customer!

Jaclyn
LOVE IT! If anyone has questions about my experience, you are welcome to email me. Every aspect of Boudoir Louisville's "product" has been meticulously thought out and professionally executed. It was absolutely perfect. PERFECT!

P.S. If you are wondering if your hair and makeup will really look as good as it does in the photos ... Believe me, it totally does!
P.P.S. If you are wondering if you could *really* pose and have your picture taken, don't worry! Brittany helps you to feel comfortable and look your best. Everyone is very positive and, believe me, you will feel comfortable. Between Brittany and Ryan, you will be cracking up and enjoying yourself in no time. 
P.P.P.S. If you're wondering if your pictures will really look as good as the ones in the photos ... yes, they will! Ryan has a gift for taking beautiful photos. You will look fantastic!

Jessica 
I ♥ BOUDOIR LOUISVILLE!!! I had such an awesome time! It was such a wonderful experience working with Ryan and Brittany! :) The hardest part was narrowing down my favorite photos....there were so many great photos to pick from! I can't wait to do another shoot!!! Oh yes....the boyfriend LOVED his book of pictures he got for Valentine's Day!!! ♥

Laura
I LOVED this experience!! I had so much fun, and everyone made me feel as though I has done this hundreds of times before! My pictures turned out absolutely amazing. I am so glad I did this for myself. Happy 30th birthday present to me!!! Thanks guys! Hope to work with you again.

Erin
Boudoir Louisville is AMAZING!!! It was such a fun time and Ryan & Brittany were fabulous! They are both super friendly and make you feel immediately at ease. Britt does such a great job on hair and makeup, I wish I could have her at my house before I go out! haha Brittany helps so much with the posing and making you more comfortable during the shoot. And Ryan is a super talented photographer. I can't imagine a better person to be "on the other side of the camera". He knows the perfect shots, backgrounds, props, etc. to use and makes you feel confident and at ease during the shoot. The finished product of the photographs and the layout of the book was better than I could have ever imagined. I am totally in awe of his work and find myself checking the website and blog to see what new photos Ryan has shot. I had my first shoot this past July and immediately wanted to do it again! I live in Las Vegas so am bummed that the studio is in Louisville, but now that I found out that Boudoir Louisville will be in Las Vegas in April, I am PSYCHED and can't wait for an amazing shoot in Sin City!! Thank you guys, you totally rock!!

Ashlyn
I can not say enough good things about Boudoir Louisville Ryan & Brittany were so awesome to be around I was nervous about having my photo taken but as soon as i got there i knew it was going to be a lot of fun!! They made me feel comfortable and it was soo much fun listening to music and getting the amazing poses and shots....I love my pictures soo much that I am going back in June for my second shoot!!! I look forward to seeing you all very soon!!!

Sabrina
I loved my photo shoot! These guys will make you feel amazingly comfortable. My hair and makeup was great and the photos are better than I ever could have imagined. I am sure this book is going to be a Christmas present my husband never forgets!

Courtney
I hate having my picture taken, and I usually hate pictures of myself. . . but this experience and the results were awesome. I drove 6 hours for it and it was TOTALLY worth it! Can't wait to do it again.

Julie
I really enjoyed our photo session at the Louisville Boudoir Studio. Ryan and Brittany made me feel right at home in the studio, even in my panties and a bra. Scooter, the make-up artist, is extremely talented, and a good conversationalist as well. My pictures were extremely gorgeous, and a artful example of boudoir photography at it's best. Thanks to all at the studio! and thanks to the cabernet that helped to relax me as well!

Katy
It is called a studio but it feels more like a home. Ryan and Brittany couldn’t have made me feel more comfortable. They have bottled water, soft drinks, wine and even liquor for those of you like me, who need a little “push” to get in front of the camera. You can really let loose in this studio; I don’t think many things can shock Ryan and Brittany after our shoot! These two talented photographers are beyond professional and have set an environment where you can be who you are in front of and behind the camera. The best part of the whole experience is that they really keep you laughing during the whole shoot just by interacting with one another. Ryan and Brittany have really started something here and I couldn’t be happier that I had the opportunity to be apart of this growing sensation. I encourage all girls to check out www.boudoirlouisville.com to discover yourself in a whole new light.

Sam
Having your picture taken at Boudoir Louisville is kinda like getting a tattoo-you're buzzing the rest of the day and you're left with something beautiful that lasts forever. Thanks y'all!

Emilie
Without a doubt, one of the best times I've had in my entire life! It was a phenomenal experience from the time I walked through the door, all the way to the end. Ryan and Brittany did an awesome job and really made me feel comfortable and confident. Awesome job with my hair and make up! I highly recommend Ryan to any girls looking for a gift for their special someone. :)

DesirΓ©e
Ryan and Brittany were both amazing! They're extremely laid-back and great at what they do! From the moment you enter Ryan's studio (which is gorgeous and very spacious!), you're at ease and comfortable with the vibe. Professionalism and fun are at a maximum at all times. Ryan is great at giving direction. You can almost feel what he's envisioning for the shot. Brittany is detail oriented and pays attention to the small things that can make or break an image.Thank you so much, Boudoir Louisville! I can't say enough about how happy I am with my experience, and how highly I would recommend having a shoot at Boudoir Louisville!!!


Kit
Ryan is a wonderful photographer!! I credit him and him alone with starting my pin up portfolio and know that with out his wonderful pictures I would not be where I am today. He is totally professional and amazingly fun to work with!! I would most definitely recommend him to someone looking to shoot for fun to even the experienced model. The attention to detail will be the same no matter the client. Ryan and the Boudoir Louisville team are awesome!

Kitty
Ryan is amazing! So fun and so professional all at the same time. I had so much fun and got some of my most amazing pictures ever! Shooting with Ryan and his staff is such a fun experience, I would recommend him to anyone! 

Neisha
I had the most amazing time shooting with Ryan. He has such a warm space and phenominal energy. His makeup artist is spectacular and I felt at home in front of his lens. If you have an opportunity to shoot with Ryan, I suggest you take it. I know I will!

Sally

Kyla
I had a blast shooting the "Bachelorette Party" shoot with you and the rest of the girls! It was so much fun!!! You are very professional and your studio is amazing!!

I already have friends lined up on their interest to shoot with you!!! Thanks again for everything!! OH... and that video was awesome!!!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!

Kara
Ryan does great work! I'm not usually very photogenic but his pics were amazing!!! Everything was very comfortable and professional and most of all fun! I would recommend him to anyone interested in doing a shoot like this. :)

Kesha
This was such an amazing experience! The pictures are beautiful. I had no idea I could look so good! Thank you so very much for a wonderful experience that I will never forget.

Jacqueline
The shoot was so fun and the pics are awesome! I can not wait to do another one now that I know how good Ryan can make me look! He is amazing to work with...totally professional and respectful. Not a single second was uncomfortable or awkward. If you are even thinking about doing a shoot like this, don't go anywhere else! Ryan is the master! - xoxoxo thanks!! Jacqueline

Haley
The shoot was amazing. We had a great time. He was also super comfortable to work with. Thank you so much!

Elizabeth
It was the greatest, we had a blast and time flew by. Ryan was the consomate (man I can't spell) professional and I never once felt uncomfortable. I love the pictures, and we got them back so 
quickly. I'm already planning on doing it again sometime.

Kendra
Ryan!!!! I had a blast shooting with you! It was lots of fun and you made it so easy!!! I get comments on how great the pics are daily! I can't wait to shoot with you again in the future!!!

Kellie
I have had the opportunity to work with Ryan twice and both times were great. Not only is he an 
awesome photographer he is so easy going and great to work with. I can't wait to work with him again!!!

Megan
Ryan was wonderful to work with. It was a very professional shoot, but still very laid-back. We had a such blast in the studio, it was hard to stay still for the poses because I was laughing so much. He ended up with some truly amazing shots (and got them back really quickly, too!) that I am looking forward to making into a book for my boyfriend for his birthday. I can't wait to do another shoot in the future!
