I have the same issue!..also I just repinned one of your inspiration pics to my board! lol

I was hoping the photographer would have a nicer space we could use but other than that I am at a loss as well.

Do you already have a photographer in mind?  You could try asking your photographer where they typically take boudoir photos or if they have any ideas?

My photographer did my photos at a modern hotel (included in the price), are you DIY’ing your photos or does your photographer require you to find the location?

We just went to a friend’s apartment.  It’s amazing what a couple of white sheets can do for a background!

We took ours in the photographers bedroom (she’s a friend). We took out all the decoration and just had the white curtains and the bed. If you take the pictures at the right angle it can look really nice.

I have seen some photographers do boudoir at secluded outdoor locations, but that requires knowing about a location.  Secluded locations also tend to be remote depending on where you live so there may be some travel involved.  Unless you are on private property there is always the chance that someone might come across your session.

Sometimes you can find really good deals for hotels on Hotwire and Hotels.com.

Some photographers have a studio; if you’re in the bay area there are a handful in SF that do it in their own creative space.

Just an FIY you can probably get a nice hotel room through Priceline for about $50-$60 in most areas so check into it. 🙂 Ive even gotten 5 star rooms for less than $80.

Or maybe borrow a nice bedding set for the shoot for you own room? Your whole room does not have to look perfect.. you can even find a suitable bedspread at Walmart or the like for cheap. Shooting on location most of us will shoot more open so the depth of field will be more shallow. (the background has that soft blurred look) You wont see much of your bedroom. Also you can shoot in other areas of you home.

I just did a cute boudoir shoot and she wore just an apron and we did this cute butt shoot in her kitchen! 🙂

I am doing mine this weekend, and my photographer has her own studio. It is like a very chic apartment, but nobody lives there! It’s perfect!
