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….

Another wonderful year of amazing wedding photography, boudoir photography, fabulous weddings and all kinds of fun and interesting projects, it seems that the Nikon quote calling us some of the greatest wedding photographers in the country has been such a blessing for us and over the past few years we have been able to do really only people that have become friends over the years and then finally got married. Some celebrity weddings not able to post, other clients that we love and have grown to call family here in LA. I wanted to revisit some of those weddings and show the outstanding photograhy that we were able to do with the help of all the couples that we were so lucky to be able to spend their most precious wedding day with and capture the love and the excitement.
Check us out on Grace Ormonde…… We are thrilled…Thanks Holly and Steve for the great wedding we got to shoot!!…… We loved every moment….You two rocked it out……xoxoxoxoxo
