@kim14410: I’ll be following this post! I want to know too! My friend booked with a photographer for her wedding and she also did boudoir. She gave a discount on boudoir since she had booked her wedding with her too.

I have two quotes so far. One is a company that has a studio where you go and get them done (Boudoir is their main focus), they charge $375, this includes hair and makeup and one 5×7, and they do not release the photos to you. 

My photogher quoted me $350 for a 90 min session, $85 for hair and makeup. They like to shoot inwit modern hotel room with natural lighting and I may or may not have to pay a cleaning fee for that (depends on hotel), this includes all rights to photos. 

I will be going with my photographer, I think I will just bThorpe comfortable that way.

I was REALLY lucky! I used one of my favorite photographers in the area and she was very reasonable. She charged $250 for about 90 minutes with a fully edited CD with rights. I wasn’t going to pay $500-600 because you have to consider other costs. Makeup, hair, nails, lingerie, jewelry, and heels. Plus, you have to pay for the album as well.

P.S. You definitely want to go with someone you feel comfortable around because it’s not the most natural situation to be in.

My photographer is usually$300 for a 60 minute session. But, they do a special once a year when they book a room at a hotel and do back to back session for 1/2 price. So I might do that.

@kim14410 – Yes, you’ll definitely want to get rights to the photos. This way, you can make your own album for much cheaper!

I paid $150 for unlimited outfit changes and they stayed for probably 2 hours (but really she said they would shoot as long as it took to feel like we had enough good shots). I had rights to all the photos taken and had a disk of them all. It was actually 2 shooters, but they didn’t have a studio so they had to be taken at my house (which I actually really liked since I felt more comfortable at my own home). She was by far the cheapest I found and I felt the most comfortable with her, she was the only place in town that didn’t have a male shooter or partner/ editor, so that was great for me!

@kim14410: I’m from around the Philly area, and the package I got is $900 – yikes!!  I’ll be getting an hour, 4 outfits, full hair and makeup, and an 8×10 book with 25 images in the end (i didn’t want to DIY mine).  There are cheaper packages but their work is amazing!  dollfacestudio.com

i’ve been stalking living social and groupon for deals, because one popped up for $90 and I stupidly didn’t buy it!  It said it had like 5 more days but the quantity was limited, so I guess thats where it went 🙁
