Thomas was very pleasant and easy to get along with. I felt no oddness or discomfort during my boudoir photo shoot. He talked to me about what I wanted to capture in the shoot beforehand, and worked to make sure I got that exact result. I have no experience doing such shoots and Thomas was great about advising me on poses and looks without making me feel silly. I couldn't believe how fun the entire shoot turned out to be. I highly recommend him based on quality of experience, extremely decent pricing, and quality of product.
I am really happy I chose Oaktown Boudoir for my first ever boudoir photos! I was really nervous at first but Cheshire was really easy to work with and gave great direction on posing and suggestions for where to take pictures. I had my proofs within a week and we worked together to design a beautiful book! Thanks for everything!
Absolutely THE best photographer I have EVER worked with. I've used Kaitlyn a few times, and each time she has FAR succeeded what I was looking for. Having OCD, and being a perfectionist, I look for quality of our time together, the way a photographer is listening to your needs, concerns and cost. I love how she is so passionate about the quality of her work, and has always taken MORE shots to gain the best look possible. Always on time, even took me once when she was sick, and still killed it in my boudoir shoot. My hubby still drills over those photos!! She's very sweet, outgoing, very calm and comfortable to work with. Photos always come back quickly and her cost is by far worth every cent. Very reasonable, and always willing to meet your needs. Highly recommended. Love her!
Made me feel super relaxed during a boudoir shooting and the pictures came out amazing! I had a really great experience.
I loved working with Lexie! I've gotten photos taken with other photographers but Lexie is remarkably different. She is sure to make you comfortable in your own skin and she highlights your natural beauties. I had pictures taken of myself & a friend and it was a fun experience for all of us to bond and admire our beautiful surroundings. Lex not only captures perfect backgrounds and angles but she captures happy moments. My favorite part is that she knows how to bring out the emotions of a picture. I had a great time with Lex and I can't wait for my next shoot!
Irina is an amazing boudoir photographer! She made me feel comfortable and beautiful - and it shows in the pictures. She was great with helping me pose, and always got the most flattering angle. Her coaching was straightforward and positive. She minimized my stress throughout the experience which I was very nervous for. Also, her photo editing is truly magical, she evened out my flaws while staying natural. The pictures came out looking sexy and classy. I am truly thrilled with the end product. Her rates were reasonable, too. I did lots of research all over the Bay Area beforehand, and I could not be happier that I chose Irina. I can't wait to gift my boudoir album to my future husband, he is going to be absolutely wowed!
This review is a bit overdue but better late than never. After spending quite a bit of time researching boudoir photographers online, I finally settled on Ian, and I am so glad I did. Mostly because of his other Yelp reviews and the professionalism of his website. I wanted to do something special for my boyfriend for Christmas. I met Ian at his place along with the make-up artist, who was referred by Ian and did a great job. I had never done anything like this before and felt fairly awkward in the beginning. But Ian was really great at making me feel comfortable thank goodness! The shoot lasted for 1 hour or so and I never felt like anything was rushed. I would recommend following the directions in the attachment he emails after booking as the advice makes for a better shoot. Ian also assisted me in helping me select outfits for the shoot. I believe we shot 4-5 "scenes". It was all very fun. Letting me bring my own playlist to play during the shoot was really nice and helped me feel relaxed. When I returned to view the photos, we widdled down the selections together. I trust his eye much more than mine and we chose enough to create a photo book. I was SUPER pleased with the results. I saw a friend who did her shoot thru livingsocial and boy do you get what you pay for. Ian- my boyfriend loved his book and when the time comes when we need another professional photographer I will be calling you! Keep up the good work!
Great photographer! I did a boudoir portrait photo shoot with Brennan. I was very impressed with his professionalism and ability to set me at ease. He knows when to give feedback and direction, and how to encourage a models self-expression. I had an excellent experience and would definitely recommend!
Nichole did my daughter's senior pictures. We went through a few different scenes and using different times of the year. I could not be more pleased with the pictures that she took, she was friendly, outgoing and accommodating, needless to say the pictures turned out amazing!!! A beautiful daughter and an amazing photographer...what more would you expect?? With trust in the photographer, she then did a boudoir shoot for me. Not only did I feel comfortable with her, I trusted her judgement as a photographer!! I was soooo happy with how her and her camera saw me!!!! As a person and a photographer she ROCKS!!!!!!!
I hired Rachel McCord for my boudoir shoot for my upcoming wedding and let me tell you I am so glad I did. I am a bit 'shy' when it comes to things like skipping around in my undergarments, especially when photos are involved, but with Rachel she made it so incredibly comfortable and even fun! She had me giggling and actually enjoying the experience - which reflected in my photos. Not only was she encouraging while also giving me directions, she also worked PAST her contracted time, found us an AMAZING secluded, private, and beautiful place - and on top of that got the photos back to me in less than a week when she new I was strapped for time! She is amazing, and I plan to use her again. Ladies if you are even THINKING of doing a boudoir shoot you would be silly to go with anyone else!
This was my first boudoir photo session. It was Groupon gift from my boyfriend. I consider myself a socially shy yet professionally confident person. Definitely not easy getting scantily clad and eventually naked in front of a stranger and having him take pictures! Kamran guides you through the initiation well. His assistant,Courtney, and Kamran help schedule the appt and review photos of your lingerie choices. I hired Sara to do my hair and makeup. When I looked in the mirror I was pleasantly surprised at my reflection! Neither Courtney nor Sara are there for the photo session. At the beginning of the session Kamran asks you questions about a memory when you felt particularly sexy and why you are doing the boudoir photo session. At the moment this line of questioning felt uncomfortably intimate to share. Once you see the final product it makes perfect sense. He wants to know so he can capture the spirit and emotion you want to convey in the pictures. This process will make the photos even more personal and appealing to your partner and you. Be sure to give it some thought before the session. He uses natural light to take the photos and his studio is set up well so he has furniture props to pose you on. You may want to look at some boudoir photos and get ideas about posing as I felt I could have used some guidance on that. It was not natural for me to move around like models do during a photo shoot. The studio is small enough you don't have to walk around far in high heels. He has a eye for what is sexy to men and women. The photos were a mix of pretty, feminine, soft to hot and sexy. He was able to photograph me in five outfits. I liked the images so much I bought a full package of photos, hi resolution pics, album and prints. It was expensive needless to say. Heck, these are pictures to look back on when I am in my 80's and I can say, "That beautiful women was me". He was easily available for post photo session communications, about the picture order, by email and text. The ordering process did take a few weeks to finalize but if you have a deadline I am sure he could accommodate that. Overall, a unique and positive experience.
Jessie is always great to work with. I'm not a model so she gives great direction and always makes me look cool! She is professional, organized, and creative. She has taken different types of photos for me - shots of my nail art work, blog photos, headshots, shots of my work studio, as well as boudoir photos. She makes me feel comfortable and confident! I highly recommend Jessie for your next shoot.
Hiring Brittany for my wedding and professional photos for work was one of the most valuable decisions I have ever made. Not only was she able to pull me out of my awkward shyness with her sweet, encouraging demeanor, but I bonded with her so much that I felt like I had known her forever. She made me feel so comfortable. She has an eye for perfect lighting,and doesn't make you do cheesy poses. She is clearly an artist first in her photography, because each photo could have gone up in a gallery with the amount of originality and thoughtfulness that went into them. I feel like is hard to do with posed wedding photos. I am going to work with her again soon to do boudoir photos and I cannot wait! Brittany is an exceptional photographer! Not just with the actual photos she produces, but the warm, friendly spirit that makes you so comfortable, and brings out the best in you. That's what she captures. Your best you.
I have done numerous photo shoots with Danielle now (boudoir shoot for my husband, fashion shoots, and a fun girls day/group boudoir shoot) and she has always been nothing short of amazing. What impresses me the most about Danielle is her ability to make me instantly comfortable in my own skin in front of the camera. The first time I did a shoot with her I was so nervous, especially because I was going to be practically naked. Danielle just has a way about her that will make you feel like you've been best friends for years and that there is no reason to be anything but confident. She is is also an extremely knowledgable and talented photographer. She knows the best poses to make you look good and feel good. Her finished product is breathtaking as well. I love how her work has a certain romanticism to it. Her shots are always beautiful. I would 100% recommend Danielle to anyone looking for a photographer for any occasion. I look forward to working with her many more times!
From a family photo shoot to our couples boudoir shoot. She made us feel comfortable and amazing! For my husband to agreee to a couples boudoir is major so that alone says a lot about Casey’s professionalism and amazing work! She really takes the time to make every picture look beyond perfect and works with whatever budget you may have in mind. Of course it is extremely difficult to pick a small package because by the time she’s done with your shoot you like every single one of her pictures. I love pictures and have gotten every single one of our poses and yes they’ve been more than I originally wanted to spend but I look at my walls and those memories are priceless! My kids will always have these memories to cherish and we will always have our secret love book to look back on our once young bodies :) I love Casey’s work. She’s always gone the extra mile to accommodate our needs and her expertise. Will always come back to her.
We had a wonderful experience with Abby! She took our family photos back in January in San Francisco. Before the actual date of our photo shoot, she emailed me ideas for color scheme and clothing to choose for my husband and I and our two children. That was very helpful. She expressed that she was always available for us if we had any questions about anything before the photo shoot. We chose the location in San Francisco (a special place for us), she met us there and we had a lot of fun! After only a few minutes, we were playing with the kids and completely forgot that we were even having our photos taken. She captured so many wonderful moments! She made us feel very comfortable and we LOVE all the photos she took! It's very evident that she loves photography and loves what she does! We would highly recommend her!!
Great guy to work with; bubbly in personality, yet patient. He encourages (and helps) you to find examples of what it is you're looking for, is timely in his responses, and gives good suggestions. Initially chosen to do only boudoir-he will likely be my wedding photographer as well.
Richard is very professional in boudoir photos, we had photos in my place, it's awesome.
Telitha was AMAZING! I could not have asked for a better photographer or a better experience. She arrived right on time. She chatted with me until I felt comfortable in front of the camera. She showed me pictures throughout the shoot so I could see how I was doing. I was able to look at the entire shoot at the end of our session to make sure I had the shots I wanted. Then, I received all the shots via drop box before the end of the day. I highly recommend Telitha for headshots. I will utilize her in the future for other photography needs and would recommend her without any reservation.
Edward is professional, courteous and takes great pictures. He has worked several corporate events for me. His photos are high-quality and reasonably priced. I will definitely seek his services again.
