I think there is art and there is porn. I see nothing wrong with tastefully done photos meant for your husband. Personally I wouldn’t feel comfortable with a male photographer but that has nothing to do with me being Christian. If I choose to do a nude shoot i don’t think it would make me less Christian, unless you know, it was for Penthouse or something. I really never thought about a Boudior shoot as an un Christian thing to do…I am interested in what others say…

boudoir shoots can be very classy and very tasteful.  if you aren’t someone who would typically indulge in something like this, it would possibly make it that much more special and exciting for your groom to be.  i don’t believe having a male photographer would be inappropriate.  most experienced photogs have seen it all and don’t think of it as something sexual but more of a job.  i am a makeup artist and i have worked on many boudoir shoots.  if it makes you feel more comfortable to work with a female then i would look for a female photog or perhaps one that works with a female assistant, oftentimes it’s their wife!  i say go for it and knock your grooms socks off!


go to portfolio and choose the artistic section then boudoir.  hope this helps!

I don’t see why nudity and sex are necessarily linked at all, really. A nude small child is not a sexual object (and the fact that we now worry about small children running arund naked because of this is a sad reflection on our society… I remember watching a TV show where a 6 year old was dancing in a crop top and someone said “she should put more clothes on, because men are looking at her inappropriately”. I thought “Only paedophiles. There’s nothing sexually alluring about a 6 year old’s belly button”).

Anyway. That aside. Even if you want nudity and sex to be linked, and you want to give tasteful hints to your future husband, what’s  wrong with that? You’ll be married, after all! I don’t think my Fiance would be interested in this, but I see nothing wrong with it. As for a male photographer… guys, he will have seen it all and more besides. And it’s not as if you are trying to seduce HIM, after all. But, if there was an option, I would prefer a female photographer.

I was recently talking about this with one of my church friends.  She had never heard of boudoir photos but thought they were a great idea.  Other married women said it would be a great opportunity to show their husbands how sexy they STILL are.  Sex in marriage can become routine and sometimes needs spicing up.  I don’t think boudoir photos cross the line at all.

By The Way, I didn’t get to do them before the wedding but I am seriously thinking of doing them for our anniversary.  DH knows and simply asks it be a female photographer….which I agree.  Oh and they would be tasteful….nothing pornish where I would feel awkward if my kids came across them.  Like VS magazine style!

In my opinion, boudoir photography is best used in the context of marriage – nothing wrong with photos of only you, for your DH’s eyes only! Personally I wouldn’t use a male photographer, and would make sure that the photos don’t get to unintended eyes.

1.  Yes I would have a boudoir session for my husband.

2.  No, I feel that it would be inappropriate AND uncomfortable to have a male photographer take these types of photos.

3.  No, I don’t think its distasteful at all.  Its for the man you love and will be with forever, in theory, so no, I think its fine.

1. Would you ever  and what are your thoughts on a boudoir photoshoot for your husband?

I would absolutely do it! Fiance and I are waiting til our wedding night and I think he’ll love a fun little “preview” the morning of the wedding (I am having them wrapped and sent to him most likely) ๐Ÿ˜‰

2. Is it considered inappropriate to have a male photographer taking the photos?

I dont think so, because its a professional AND the pictures are meant for your husband- not him!

3. And just in general is it inappropriate to do a ‘tasteful’ nudity photo album for your husband?

Hes going to be your HUSBAND. Its totally fine in the bonds of marriage

As long as they are tasteful, I think they’re fine.  Some can be down right gorgeous!  I wouldn’t feel comfortable with a male photographer, and from a modesty factor, I don’t think that it’s appropriate.  As far as the nudity goes, I am not sure about that.  I think some things can be done in a respectful manner, but not by a male photographer, that just is disrespectful to your husband.  Your body should be for his eyes only.  I would also worry about someone finding the pictures (the nude ones especially)  years down the road would your children accidently stumble across them?  That’s really something to consider.

I think if the photographer is a professional, it shouldn’t matter if it’s a man or a woman, as long as it’s someone you’re comfortable with. 

And read Song of Solomon – pretty spicy stuff. Makes boudoir photos seem tame.

As a Christian woman, I see no problem with doing a boudoir shoot or having a male photog for it.  I don’t know where the sin is in that.  I am having a female photog do mine because I feel more comfortable that way, but it has nothing to do with my religion.

Sex within the context of marriage is hard to argue with. If we’re talking about tasteful, beautiful pictures of you from a boudoir shoot for your soon-to-be husband, I see nothing at ALL wrong with that! The male photographer is up to your comfort level – a lot of people have male OB-GYNs and see nothing wrong with that (though of course a doctor is not exactly the same as a photographer). But someone who does boudoir shoots on a regular basis is not probably someone you need to worry about: this is where good research & testimonials will come in handy.

As far as your kids finding them “someday,” that sounds like a pretty far-fetched fear. Not only is that likely long into the future, but you might also want to consider teaching them that there is nothing wrong with sex within marriage. Just a thought. Either way, it seems like a silly reason not to have them done.
