Choosing Your DC Photographer

When first considering a boudoir session, you’ve likely begun scouring the internet and Pinterest for ideas already. Different poses, different outfits, different hairstyles…the list continues.

However, what about the most important part? You have to find the right photographer.

Comparing prices is only the first part of narrowing down your photographer. Boudoir is one area where it may not be best to go with the cheapest option.

You are going to want quality pictures and a local DC photographer who has experience specifically in this style of photography to help showcase your best angle.

Experience, skill with the camera, the right photography gear, proper lighting, and even the personality will all impact your session.

The right photographer will probably not be cheap. On average, a boudoir client can pay around eight hundred dollars. When you hear this, you might think it’s astronomical, but DC has some of the world’s best photographers and this is a small price to pay for quality.

Also, consider that you’ll be removing clothing in front of this person. For a fully professional experience, including guiding you through the process and knowing how to perfectly capture the best boudoir outfits you choose, from classy boudoir outfits, bridal boudoir outfits, or even maternity boudoir outfits, you should probably look for a photographer charging a little more than a Groupon special price.

This isn’t to say that quality boudoir photography sessions can’t be found on Groupon or at more reasonable prices. You should also look at previous work, and see if they have experience in the kind of boudoir session that you’re aiming for.

In their work portfolio, take a close look at how the photos have come out.

Are the subjects sensual and curvy, or unflattering and nervous looking?

How about their outfits, including any makeup and hair?

If you’ve found a lower cost photographer in Washington DC, is styling included, or are they just running a camera?

After looking at the tangible evidence of their work, check out the reviews for them.

Yelp pages, Groupon reviews, and other internet searches will work for DC, but a personal referral from a friend is the best way to go.

Boudoir Photography DC Professional Consultation

After going on the offense to find information about them, it’s time to set up an in-person consultation.

The best boudoir photographers, such as one from PMAI will be happy to provide a full consultation to help you plan the perfect session.

We will discuss what you would like to accentuate or downplay, depending on you and/or your partner’s preferences.

In the consultation, you’ll also be able to get into an in-depth discussion about wardrobe.

Lingerie for a boudoir shoot will be different for every client, and every photographer will be different. Your photographer will be able to tell you what will look best on you and discuss how to style your boudoir lingerie to incorporate their personality in the photos.

You’ll want to make sure that above all, you can be comfortable with your photographer.

During the consultation, you can begin getting to know him or her (this could be another factor – are you comfortable undressing in front of either a male or female photographer?), so you won’t be as nervous when the session day arrives.

At the end of the consultation, if this is going to be your photographer, there should be a contract present and signed by both parties. Without a contract, you are wide open for a slew of legal problems.

There is no guarantee of protection of your privacy, which is incredibly important when dealing with this kind of nearly nude or in the nude photography.

A contract will also list out exactly what to expect, such as boudoir clothing styling, hair and makeup, the number of photos you can expect, different poses to expect, and a timeline for everything.

This will also break down the exact pricing, which can be helpful if this is something you are saving up for, or if you are having a hard time with the price of a true lingerie photography session.
