We gt a lot of clients that we cannot post anything. It is understandable when we are doing people that other people know and they are not into showing them selves in lingerie or in a 50 shades of grey type shoot!! BUT every once in awhile we get a cool client that will let us show all the images that she is totally unrecognizable in.....So that is what we are doing today....We did a little bit of Wedding Boudoir and then some edgy Boudoir shots....

Hope you enjoy these images we loved them and shooting these clients. She was one of those dream girls that said yes to everything!!!  See if you can guess who anyone is!!  We often get the boys looking for boudoir photographers for their girls....The are looking for sexy photography or sexy photo shoots for their girls....Girlfriend sexy shoots are really in...So come on boys get with the program these shoots are the best gift ever!!!

Hello this is Hedley Jones, Cherie Steinberg’s partner and husband at the Boudoir Cafe.

Our style is that we shoot side by side and are a part of the show!

It’s 2017 and we have been shooting at The Boudoir Café exclusively for about 4 years at our studio in #beverlyhills but we are also very much open to destination shoots. Our local area of travel from Los Angeles includes  Las Vegas and San Fransisco but we are open to any romantic getaway that our clients might suggest.

So what is the state of boudoir in 2017….from a mans point of view?

When I shoot at the boudoir cafe alongside Cherie,  our clients have the unique experience of two cameras and a female/male perspective. This is one of the things that gives us an edge in the industry. …you get double the fun!!!! Also two different angles and lenses which make for more selection.

In the past all our marketing was geared to women and their needs, but recently we have been paying more attention to the men….every man wants their woman to be sexy and with the easy access to sexy images on the internet every woman faces stiff competition.

But just as much as we encourage women to do it for themselves we now talk to the men.

We have several repeat clients who’s husband or boyfriends take an active role in the whole process., even to the point of shopping for the lingerie and the stye of the shoot. 

This is a whole new angle on the art of boudoir photography, traditionally we don’t allow men on the set unless it’s a couples shoot which requires special discussion, but we have noticed that men are much more interested in the process than we first thought. We have had a lot more input from the men even down to the posing. This is a good thing and definitely adding value to our different packages which brings me to the point of this blog.

It has always been our intention of providing a full service package at the Boudoir Café where our client has a complete spa day experience…..so this is our ultimate package:

 The Ultimate Package:

It starts with a gift email card….

Then with the getting ready guide before you arrive

 The Day Of:

Hair and makeup

Champagne and snacks

Complimentary props and backgrounds

Many changes of lingerie outfits

Limo service to dinner at the very private LA hotspot Soho House West Hollywood (If you do not know Soho House looks it up)

Then we set aside a day for viewing and choosing end products!! (Italian mostly)

 This is our Ultimate Package

Call us and we will construct one just for you!
