    I voted “no way,” but not beause I would never do a boudoir shoot. I just wouldn’t do it in these circumstances. Admittedly I didn’t look at the website you posted but I would never personally do a boudoir shoot unless it was a FEMALE photographer that I had read reviews on or heard about through my friends. Even then, I would still only do lingerie, not totally nude. This is just my opinion, though. If you do decide to do it, I still think you should get more info on the photographer, though. There are a lot of creeps out there…

    @dbeland:  I did a boudoir shoot, not nude though.  Also, not with a strange photographer that I’ve never met before.  My wedding photography package came with an engagement shoot and a choice of bridal or boudoir.  I talked to my FI about it, and he chose boudoir.  My photographer is also a female.  I voted yes, with lingerie, but then I read your post, and I’d say no way.

    I voted “no”. I just couldn’t imagine getting undressed in front of a photographer!

    I tried to look up reviews on the photographer & couldn’t find any with a quick google search. If I came up with the same results with an in depth search there would be NO way I’d do it! Sounds like an amatuer photographer trying to break into the field to me (he had 73 “likes” on facebook) so there’s no way I would. If you do just read the contract thoroughly and make sure none of the pics can be posted ANYWHERE without your consent.

    I voted “no way,” BUT-

    Mostly just because it would feel really ‘icky’ to me that I just *happened* to win a budoir shoot with some random MALE photographer.

    Call me old-fashioned, but even when I go get my yearly physical, I prefer a female doctor. (Though of course I’ll suck it up and go see a male if there isn’t a female available.)

    But the doctor situation is… purely medical. A budoir shoot is meant to be SEXY. I would feel totally uncomfortable trying to be sexy in my underwear in front of some strange man lol.

    I would TOTALLY do a budoir shoot for my future hubby if I sought out the photographer MYSELF, which also means that said photographer would be female, as well.

    No way Jose to nude. In this day and age I wouldn’t trust internet security to enough to be 100% sure that they’d never leak out. (Especially if it’s a small operator like @soontobemrsm11:  suggests). Or that my teenage children wouldn’t stumble on them in 20 years’ time. For the same reason I wouldn’t in sexy lingerie.

    Also, usually when you “win” a photography session (boudoir or otherwise), everyone who fills in a card “wins” a session, and they make their money on the prints.

    I say do it, but with sexy lingerie! I am doing a boudoir shoot as a surprise for my FI and I know it’ll be one of the best gifts I can give him that he can’t figure out beforehand! 

     

    I say DO IT!! :)

    That being said: if you can’t find legit information on the photographer, I’d say no. Otherwise, maybe you could look into one with a photographer that you trust, that is reputable.

    I’d much rather do it in front of a man than in front of a woman. they’re there to take pictures, not to jerk off to you!

    @dbeland:  I would only do a boudoir shoot with a photographer that I felt comfortable with, who was reputable, and who did not maintain copyrights over the photos (ie I would make sure that I maintain rights over the photos).  That said, I checked out the site which is in French, a language I don’t understand.  The photos look very artistic, but honestly, the photographer’s picture creeped me out.

    I checked out the website you posted and saw some of his photography. It’s really great photography and tasteful. I would have no problem going nude…maybe with a drapey blanket to cover certain areas.

    But like jcw522 said, there must be some sort of guarantee that he doesn’t post your photos without your consent. If he’s professional that shouldn’t be a problem.
