Cherie has been absolutely amazing throughout this whole experience.
I'm a college student and wanted to get some boudoir photos done while I'm at this age. After doing some research and comparing some photos, it was clear that Cherie and Hedley were the best in the business! I mean, just look at the photos on their website and instagram page and you'll know what I mean. I think what convinced me to go with Boudoir Cafe was the fact that their pictures featured women of all ages and body types- yet were all equally stunning, sexy photos. It was obvious that Cherie has a special skill that made all of these different women feel so confident and sexy in their skin, which really comes across in the photos.
I spoke to Cherie on the phone and we were able to work out a customized package to include the things I wanted at a price in my budget. She was so accommodating and understanding throughout the whole thing and kept reassuring me that she just wants to make me happy! Before the shoot, she sent a comprehensive guidebook of tips to prepare for the shoot, including lingerie suggestions and health routines, like a true professional! I highly recommend you read this before the scheduled shoot.
On the day of the photoshoot, I was pretty nervous, but everyone on set quickly made me feel at ease. The make-up artist was great. If possible, I recommend you get your hair and makeup professionally done at the studio. It makes a big difference in the photos. Plus- you'll have someone there for touchups and slight makeup changes to match your different outfits.
Cherie's husband, Hedley was shooting alongside her. I didn't know if I would be totally comfortable with a male photographer, but I assure you, they're both total professionals and give you nothing to feel uneasy about. It's really great to have photos of the same poses from different styles and angles. Looking through the photo gallery, the pictures look so different depending on who shot it. Both Cherie and Hedley are so amazing and such artists!
Their studio is stunning. There's a very artsy, sexy, dark vibe to it and you feel like you're in your own little world. It's very easy to get lost in the photoshoot because you get so into it! It feels more like you're shooting fun photos with your trusted best friends, than a photoshoot with people you just met hours beforehand. I was there for four hours and would have stayed for longer, if there hadn't been another appointment booked that day! It really felt like 30 minutes!!
The photos all came out even better than I was expecting. Word of advice: if Cherie or Hedley are giving you posing tips on set- heed them! They know what they're talking about... Cherie's editing is so artistic. I mean really, she made me look like a piece of art in these photos... I cannot stress this enough- Cherie and Hedley are so talented in what they do.
All in all, I wholeheartedly recommend booking with Boudoir Cafe. I'm telling all of my friends about them!
