BOOKING your charleston boudoir session:

Every client of mine is treated like my only client. Contact me as soon as possible to book your shoot. It is best to schedule your shoot at least 4-6 weeks before you need your products. 

A nonrefundable retainer signed agreement will be required to finalize your booking and reserve your date. A la Carte Boudoir Sessions start at $350+tax, with hair & makeup available as an add-on. Most clients invest $1,500-$2,100 in their boudoir photography experience and products. Packages and Payment Plans are available (see below). 


I know that a boudoir photo session is out of many's comfort zone. This is why I've created a system to prepare you and ease your concerns! After your booking is confirmed you'll be sent a link to my Pre-Shoot Questionnaire, which will allow me to get to know you better and make the most of your shoot! You will also be mailed a copy of my Boudoir Magazine which includes information on what to bring, where to shop, and tips and tricks to practice before your session!


Professionally styled hair and makeup can be added to your session for $150, and is recommended for the best look and full experience, but you are welcome to come with your hair and makeup ready yourself! 

An alternative hair & makeup option: Many of my clients just add makeup to their regular salon appointment and book their boudoir shoot with me right afterward.

When the day of your session arrives, we will start with hair and makeup (if you've added it to your session) and make you oh-so-gorgeous! Then, when your shoot begins, don’t worry about knowing what to do or posing, that's my job! I will coach you through the whole shoot with poses that flatter your body to guarantee you look your absolute best! 

Your Boudoir Viewing Appointment:

Within two weeks of your session (as early as the day after!) you will come back for you private viewing and ordering session! Viewing sessions take place at my studio and is when you decide on the images you love and choose from several different products. Products and images are all purchased separately from your session fee. 



Boudoir is a luxury experience for many clients, and one that they plan out months ahead of time. I offer financing through Paypal Credit to support those that are budget-conscious. It is also a good option if wish to keep your gift a secret by paying smaller amounts. You can setup payments in advance and have your entire package (products and all!) paid off by the date of your shoots. Products are not ordered until after payment has been received in full.


I take your privacy very seriously. All images shown by Boudoir by Marie are posted with permission. Boudoir by Marie is a female-only experience. Myself, a female assistant and female beautician are the only people present during your shoot. Creating a comfortable atmosphere is very important to me so you can relax and I can create the most beautiful images for you!
