I had my heart set on one particular photographer but I’ve already called once and emailed twice and got zero reply 🙁
So I need recommendations! Anywhere in CA will do as long as the photos are sexy but classy- no smut please 🙂

Anywhere in California is a little vague, but depending on your budget, I have two recommendations for you.
Northern California (SF Bay Area): Alloria Winter Studios – http://www.alloriawinter.com/
Hers are very whimsical and creative, and definitely NOT slutty or XXX. She has a huge closet of accesories, including high-end lingerie pieces like Kiki de Mountparnasse and Agent Provacateur. She shoots in her studio so you don’t have to find another location, unless you want to. I’m not local to the SF Bay Area but I know several people that have gone with her for boudoir photos and they couldn’t be happier. I think her rates are on the website somewhere but she’s a little on the pricier side (more than $1k) but IMO her quality and portfolio are top-notch. Her Yelp reviews are really good too.
Southern California (Orange County): Boudoir by Rani Lu – http://www.boudoirbyranilu.com/
Hers are very elegant and slightly modern vintage, mostly because of the setup in her studio. She has the pretty patterned wallpaper, vintage chairs and other feminine furniture in her studio, which is convenient as you don’t have to find another location to shoot, unless there’s a place you had in mind. Her rates are pretty reasonable considering you get a lot of digital files that you own the rights to (for personal reproduction) and hair and makeup. The rates should be on the website somewhere. I liked the photos in her portfolio and everyone looked really classy and elegant IMO. I communicated with her via email and phone and she’s been responsive and professional.
