So I’ve decided to do a boudoir set for my Fiance and am looking for any tips or advice from those of you who have been down this road. I’m not worried about posing in lingerie and nude (I guess I’m an exhibitionist at heart plus I want him to get a thrill out of them!).
Any advice on how you posed, what you wore and how the whole process went?
Fiance has requested some pics that are more hustler than playboy (his words), and just curious what advice you guys have.

Phogorapher is the #1 thing. If they arent good at posing or paying attention to the small details then it won’t turn out good.
As for outfits you usually bring them. Wear what you feel comfortable in.
I would recommend professional hair and make up.
Have fun! It shouldn’t be stressful it should be fun. Love your body!

I got a deal off Groupon once, and it was awful. The photographer didn’t do the best job of making me feel comfortable or with natural looking poses, so all the pictures look staged and very fake. There’s only 1 photo out of the whole shoot where I was actually making eye contact. The photos were shot in a cheesy hotel room and it showed in the background. I was so embarrassed at the reveal with my Fiance.
With that being said I would totally do it again, just with a better photographer, and probably not a Groupon lol
Agreed with PP on professional hair and makeup.

Definitely hire a photographer who *specializes* in boudoir photography. It’s a special artform and takes the perfect combo of skill, posing, and lighting. Bad photography doesn’t make it look sexy, it makes it look like cheap porn. I say this as a wedding photographer (who doesn’t do boudoir because it’s not my specialty) – hire someone that does it as their main focus.
A good and experienced photographer will guide you in the best poses for your body, the outfits, etc. If they don’t work out of their own studio, most use high-end hotel rooms as well as professional hair and makeup. A quality session doesn’t come cheap, but the reverse option is cheap looking photos.

- Wedding: October 2016 - Painswick Church and the Falcon Hotel
I did something similar in my getting ready shots for my wedding and I quite like this sat on the edge of the bed pose I think the key is to get the right balance of classy and sexy. Good luck and have fun!

before arrival dont wear anything tight, not elastics on your wrists etc these things leave red marks so wear lose fitted clothes. Poses depends on what features you want to highlight phogopher should guide you

Sorry for the delay couldnt find my favourite shots but here area. Few from a couple different sets
From above is always a good angle
For this shoot used this big sweater over underwear and thigh highs and slowly revealed more through poses eventually removing sweater though the chair mostly covered pics were my favs

Always a good angle i also recommend looking at lots of pose ideas your photog should direct you a bit but itll help you prepare
