Introduction: Hi. I'm Kat Waldvogel. Kat is short for Kathleen and Waldvogel is a mouthful. :) I've been a professional photographer for over 8 years, and I would love to be your photographer. My clients have lots of different reasons for booking their sessions: * getting married * getting divorced  * as a sexy gift for their significant other * reaching a "milestone" birthday * achieving a fitness goal * embracing themselves just as they are... :) ​ Whatever YOUR reason, we'll collaborate to design your boudoir session to capture images that will celebrate YOU. YOU: at your best Think you don't photograph well? That's something I hear all the time, and I'm always thrilled when I change women's minds. I have years of experience photographing actors, models and regular folks. Over time, I've developed a style of engaging with and working with my clients that creates a relaxing environment where everyone has fun. ​ And your photographs are going to be amazing!

I was a professional photographer myself. I trusted Kat with my portrait was was blown away by her speed, responsiveness, quality, and ability to work with difficult subjects (me!) I'm now in possession of a GREAT portrait - from first contact to finished product in less than 48 hours!

Details: Professional headshot • Traditional / classic (looking directly at the camera) • Candid (captured in the moment) • Artistic (focus on composition, lighting) • Photo studio • Digital or online download • At the pro’s location

Having a client who arrives on time, knows what he wants and is able to help me to achieve the desired result is a rare delight. I had fun working with you and am thrilled that you love your new head shot. Thank you for your kind words.

Kat got right to it with her work all while explaining about her approach. Probably the easiest photographer I have ever worked with for this kind of work. Received my proof early, and having the hardest time eliminating any.

Kat's work is phenomenal. Not only is she an absolute pleasure to work with, but also her results are superb. Kat did a series of professional headshots for business purposes. She knew exactly the look we were going for and she has much experience in this area and made excellent suggestions. We could not have been more pleased with the final shots. We are going to now use her for some photos of our daughters. Look no further than Kat for any of your photography needs.

I have to say I was very impressed with Kat's photography! She has a natural style of celebrating the real person (and in our shoot, my dog also, she is WONDERFUL with pets). I'm getting a lot of great feedback on social media on the images we choose, and I will want to use her expertise again in a year or so.

Kat was always quick to respond, punctual, and professional. She has a great personality and our session was lots of fun- even with a cranky toddler. Our photos were absolutely gorgeous and we look forward to working with Kat again in the future.

Your beautiful family was just what I needed on Saturday. Such a joy, and images I am truly proud to deliver! Thanks for choosing me to provide your family photography.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Boudoir photography is incredibly specialized, and when done right, is a luxury experience. My retainer fee is $349, which includes professional hair and makeup, and a full, luxury photo shoot. Products and prints are purchased separately. Collections start at $599, with most clients investing $2-3,000. Some invest significantly more. If you are price shopping for boudoir photography, you get what you pay for.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Step 1: Consultation - typically by phone, as soon as a client inquires. We discuss your motivation for wanting to do a boudoir shoot, answer your questions, and get to know each other a bit. This is a very intimate photo shoot, so being comfortable with your photographer is key to getting the most gorgeous images. If images are needed by a certain date we take that into consideration when selecting the date for your shoot. Once your retainer is paid and your date is secured, we move to... Step 2: Planning - I set up a private, Pinterest vision board and we begin collaborating on hair and makeup, and wardrobe. You'll get a bunch of emails from me, guiding you through every step of planning your dream photo shoot. Reminders are sent as your session date approaches so that you'll be rested and ready to have an amazing time. Step 3: Your shoot - sessions typically start at 10am with professional hair and makeup. While you're in the chair being pampered, I'll go through your wardrobe choices and we'll plan out your session. This is another great opportunity for us to get to know each other a little better and for your to get comfortable and relaxed. We'll shoot for around 2 hours in a variety of outfits and with different sets. You can expect an incredible boost to your self-esteem from this experience, and I generally suggest to clients that they plan an evening out to capitalize on their makeover and riding the energy from their shoot. Step 4: Image reveal and ordering appointment. About a week after your session you'll return to the studio to see your gorgeous images for the first time. We'll go through your images, one-by-one, to determine which ones you absolutely cannot live without. I'll custom design a luxury album of your choice and we'll decide on wall art. Payment plans are available to ensure you get all the images that you love, and once you are paid in full, your products are ordered. If your collection includes digital files, you can leave with them at the end of your ordering appointment, or they'll be delivered when your payment plan has been completed.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I've refined my style and skills by working with some of the best photography coaches available, as well as through professional instruction on industry-leading photography tools like Nik Collection, PhotoShop and LightRoom. I have been a professional photographer for over 8 years, photographing actors, models and business professionals. When I decided to switch to boudoir photography, I chose mentors at the highest level of the boudoir industry. I continue working with these talented coaches, as well as collaborating with boudoir photographers across the country, to ensure I am constantly growing and improving in my craft.
