I don’t have any leads in SF but am also looking, so would love to hear other responses.  I did find one woman more reasonably priced a few hours outside of SF that is starting out that is willing to come to SF if there were a group of brides here that wanted to work with her and split the costs of her travel fee and a hotel room for the sessions.

I’m interested in any recommendations as well. I did flag this post from about a year ago listing a couple local boudoir photogs, but I’ve yet to research their pricing.

@ Bean – you’re right, most of those are out of my price range as well, but I’ll share the price quotes I’ve gotten back, since this post inspired me to get on the ball and do some research!

Here are the ones I looked into:

The Basics of Sweet Tart Boudoir (all the lingo you need to know)

* A session with the photographer will include one or multiple “Set-ups”. (Backdrops and lighting will be provided, unless we choose a location shoot)

* Each Set up consists of around 50-75 photographs to choose from, professional lighting and backdrops, AND 3 fully retouched photographs. (we can, of course, work with you if you want more)

2 setups= $200
3 setups= $275
4 setups= $350
5 setups= $425

Not much info was given in response to my e-mail inquiry, except links to her sites and “Packages range from $500 to $3500 depending on what you want.”

Marin Kristine Photography

Can’t cut and paste the info from her site, but visit the link above, she has $500, $700 and $950 packages.

Adeline & Grace Intimates – who I think I might go with, they have a studio (a plus because lots of boudoir photogs want to do the shoot in your house, which is pretty impossible considering I live with my Fiance and don’t want to kick him out during the shoot and ruin the surprise), and I LOVE the style of their shots, plus the pricing is pretty reasonable, given the quality).

All commissions include a complimentary consultation to discuss the vision of your session.

The Sensual Book $600

1-2 hour intimates session with 2-4 different looks. Includes a 5×5 30-image book set against sultry black pages.

The Sultry Book $900

1-2 hour intimates session with 3-5 different looks. Includes and 8×8 30-image book set against sultry black pages

The Sinful Book $1100

2-3 hour intimates session with 4-6 different looks. Includes an 8×8 30-page custom designed album with approximately 30-50 images.

The Seductive Book $1800

3 hour intimates session with unlimited looks. Includes an 8×8 30-page custom designed album with approximately 30-50 images. Available in luscious red leather or sultry black leather. A peek-a-boo image adorns the cover of this album.

Of course these aren’t all the boudoir photogs in the Bay Area, but these are the ones who’ve responded to my inquires so far (and I only sent e-mails to those that I either LOVED the look of their portfolios, or seemed like they might have reasonable prices.)

If anyone else comes across other boudoir photogs with good pricing, please post them!

This just popped up in my Google reader, Adeline and Grace Intimates is having two mini session days this November and December, $225 for an hour shoot with two outfits. Something to look into if you’re on a budget for boudoir pics!

My Photographer Heidi Huber does amazing boudoir photos!!

Check out her recent blog posting – It was a Boudoir in Tahoe this weekend.  This is her video and Photos from her camera! Incredible – Tell her Danielle sent you…


Another great idea a friend just did – She didn’t want to do the shoot in her home so she got a fabulous hotel room and had the photographer take pics during the day. After the photographer left she told her fiancee to meet her there…Imagine his surprise when she gave him the photos for a wedding gift and he recognized the hotel and the memory…

I would keep checking the classifieds here because photographers will occasionally post specials they have on there.  I’ve also heard of some photographers offering a discount if you can get a group of girls who will do it.  Good luck and let us know when you find a great deal because I’m sure it will help plenty of other brides!

I just finished a boudoir marathon session in SF with Carmen from Miami. She was awesome! She was very warm and made me feel comfortable right away. The session was super affordable too. She offered 3 different packages and price points. I would definately reccomend her if anyone is still looking!

I recently had my boudoir session with Tiffany from Adeline & Grace Intimates. I can’t recommend her enough! She’s extremely professional and definitely has an eye for what looks good. I was a little nervous going into the session but had so much fun. I went for the sensual album, which is 30 images in a 5×5 book. I really didn’t want to spend more than $500, but I think the final product is totally worth $600 and I’m glad I went with Adeline & Grace. I did my own hair and makeup. Her turnaround time is amazing and she’s very responsive. My session was 5/9, and the album came yesterday, all nicely wrapped and everything. The album is high quality- I can’t wait to give it to my FI!

I worked with Karina (Collete Photography)…her pricing is pricey but she has a studio so you don’t need to rent a room.
