5 TIPS FOR HIRING A BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHER
Boudoir photography seems to be a dime-a-dozen commodity, especially around Valentine’s Day. There are so many “deals” out there and photographers offering this service, how do you know who to choose?! Here are 5 tips to help you decide:
1. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!
This is no joke! If you buy a photo shoot coupon off of something like Groupon, it may seem like an amazing deal, but buyer beware. Groupon only gives 50% of that price to the seller, that means they’re working for even LESS than the grossly discounted price. Why would they give you the same experience as a full paying client? Think about it…
2. KNOW & LOVE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER!
You should be able to meet with your photographer in person prior to the shoot. Boudoir/Glamour photography is extremely personal, so make sure you’re completely comfortable around this person. Any photo shoot should be an awesome experience!!
Also, make sure you love their photography! A good photographer will know how to direct you and shoot you in the most flattering ways possible to accent your assets and minimize your “issues” (let’s be honest, we all have them). Make sure to go through their portfolio and ask questions.
3. SAFETY FIRST!
As I said, Boudoir/Glamour photography is extremely personal, so know exactly ALL of the details prior to booking. Where is the location? Is it reputable? Is it in a safe area? Who else will be there? Are you allowed to bring a friend? Is the photographer well established? Make sure you are comfortable with all aspects of the shoot before you commit!
4. KNOW WHAT YOU’RE GETTING – READ THE CONTRACT!
Some questions to ask yourself or your photographer before you sign the contract:
- Is the retainer refundable should I change my mind or have to cancel?
- What is included with the price?
- What products/packages are available post shoot?
- What is your turn-around time?
- Is retouching included in the price?
- Will you be publishing or using my photos for advertisements?
- Will it be YOU shooting me, or someone else (such as an associate photographer)?
- Is hair & makeup services available and if so, for how much?
5. BE PREPARED!
Most photographers do not provide wardrobe or hair & makeup. Bring a suitcase with you to the shoot complete with several matching sets, or some that can be mixed and matched, shoes, accessories, and props. Raid your friend’s closets and hit up the discount racks. The photographer should be able to help you finalize based on what will look best on you and on camera. Also, hire a hair & makeup artist – they will be able to get you camera ready, knowing what will photograph best.
Make sure you’re polished! Make sure your nails are manicured and polished – if you color your hair, cover those roots – shave or get freshly waxed – slather yourself in lotion, head to toe! Polished – head.to.toe.
I hope this has helped you prepare for shopping around for your Denver Boudoir Photographer, and I’m available to answer any questions via email or phone/text. I love shooting women of all shapes and sizes and making them look and feel sexy in front of my camera. Glamour sessions are one of my favorites and I’m thrilled to be able to offer this to my clients.
