A Standard Boudoir by Marie Photo Session
HOW IT ALL WORKS...
We do book up very quickly! Please DON'T WAIT to book your session! It's never too early to get on our schedule. Set your shoot date at least 4 weeks prior to when you need your the finished product in-hand. That said, sometimes we can make things happen pretty fast - so a faster turnaround time could be possible!
A signed contract and a non-refundable retainer payment is required to secure your session. Your session date is NOT reserved or confirmed until I receive your signed contract AND retainer payment in full.
WHAT TO BRING:
You'll have time for TWO different outfits + an optional nude or ”in the sheets” set. Only bring outfits that you love! Boudoir photography is only as revealing as you choose to be - there is never any pressure to shoot in anything but what you are comfortable in and feel most beautiful wearing!
I've created a huge set of resources to prepare you and ease your pre-shoot jitters! Once your booking is confirmed you'll be sent information with ideas for what to bring, how to prepare, and tips & tricks to make the most of your session!
When your shoot begins, don’t worry about knowing what to do or how to move, that's my job! I'll coach you and demonstrate poses for you, whatever flatters your body and style. If you'd like to get a little practice in advance, the Client's Only Access that you receive after booking includes posing tips and ideas for you to look over before your session.
Boudoir sessions take place at my residential Studio on Daniel Island in Charleston, South Carolina. It has gorgeous, natural lighting and understated glamorous decor - white sheets, soft throws and pillows, whitewashed brick and wood floors. I have a second set that is more dramatic and decorated in rich jewel tones. Exact address information is provided to you the week of your shoot, along with last minute tips to keep in mind before your session!

Products and images are all purchased separately from your session fee. After your session I will contact you to schedule your online reveal. You will receive 24 hour access to a password-protected online proofing gallery. This is when you select the images/products that you love and would like to order!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Will you keep my images private?
I take your privacy very seriously. All images shown by Boudoir by Marie are posted with permission. I will always keep your images private unless you give me permission to show them.
Who will be at my session?
Boudoir by Marie is a female-only experience. Myself and female beautician are the only people present during your shoot. Creating a comfortable atmosphere is very important to me so I can create the most beautiful images for you!
I have cellulite/stretch marks/acne. Can you get rid of that?
Yes! I will lightly retouch your proofing images, removing blemishes and adjusting lighting. Once you have chosen your final images, I will fine tune the editing, smoothing skin, removing stray hairs, brightening up shadows and other artistic edits. Removal of acne, acne scarring, stretch marks, and cellulite is part of the retouching process. I do my best to only enhance your natural beauty and not change it through Photoshop. If there is something you feel self-conscious about, we can use poses and lighting to emphasize your best features instead!
NOTE: Fake/Spray tan patchiness or "orange"ness will NOT be edited out, please do not spray tan before your session!
I‘m older/curvier than some of the girls on your website, can I still book a session?
Of course! I have photographed women 19-61 years old and sized 0-26+. Not everyone is comfortable with their photos being shared publicly so I can’t always show a lot of examples. I will create images to flatter YOU and show your most beautiful self no matter your age, shape or size!
Do you provide the outfits?
I do not provide outfits, shoes, or props. I want you to bring whatever you feel most beautiful in and that showcase your own personality and interests!
Can I bring a friend to my shoot?
If you'd like to bring a fun and supportive female friend to your session with you for encouragement, you're more than welcome to! Limit is ONE adult female guest only. Please notify me in advance that you will be bringing a female friend, surprise guests will be asked to leave.
Will my photos be published?
I only post client's images publicly with their express permission. All images shown on the Boudoir by Marie website or social media pages are posted with permission.
Where do the shoots take place?
Boudoir sessions take place at my residential Studio in Charleston, SC. It has gorgeous, natural lighting and understated glamorous decor - white sheets, soft throws and pillows, whitewashed brick and wood floors. Exact address information is provided to you the week of your shoot, along with last minute tips to keep in mind before your session!
Outdoor shoots can also be arranged, whether you’re envisioning a secluded beach at sunset or a lush forest clearing. (Any location related fees are to be paid by client, an additional travel fee may be incurred as well.) Just remember, while outdoor shoots yield stunning results, Mother Nature loves to keep us on our toes. Come prepared with plenty of water, an umbrella, natural bug repellent and a knack for rolling with the weather.
