Boudoir is the French word for a woman’s bedroom so it makes sense that a boudoir shoot is typically thought of as a sexy photoshoot. Women typically wear revealing outfits – lingerie, stockings, undergarments, jewelry, wigs, etc. It doesn’t always have to be like that though! 

Personally, when I think of a boudoir shoot, I think of it as more of a self-confidence booster. While some women believe wearing sexy clothing helps them build confidence, it’s honestly more about what makes you feel good, and I have so many clients that tell me how amazing their partners make them feel.

I do get commonly asked to shoot couples for maternity boudoir sessions. It’s inspiring for me to see all of these significant others involved during this precious time in a woman’s life and I want to support you in any way that I can. I will photograph couples outside of maternity IF the fit is right. 

What is Couple boudoir photography?

The difference between a traditional boudoir session and a couples session is that we do not do any solo portraits during a couples session, all of your images will be taken together. If you are hoping to get some solo shots, I recommend booking your traditional boudoir experience first and then coming back to see me for Round #2 with your partner.

Why Go For a Couples Boudoir Session?

One of my favorite things to hear from my clients is how comfortable they were and how fun the experience was. It’s usually along the line of ‘that was not what I thought it was going to be…it was better!’ Of course, it was – it’s a day ALL about you! And the feeling is addictive! I promise you!

I think one of the best compliments for me is when I hear how much their partner loved their images too, so much so they even thought it would be fun to do it together. Welllll then, I’m in if you are! It’s inspiring to work with couples that see the love in their partners and want to capture it with them. Marriage is a long time, so make sure you’re doing spontaneous things along the way!

Choosing the Best Couple Boudoir Photographer

If you’re anything like me, you’re not taking off your clothes for just anyone. And vice versa, I don’t just want anyone coming into my studio. 

Safety for you and safety for me are my top priorities as your intimate portrait photographer so it’s important to my process to spend a lot of time getting to know my clients and their goals for this shoot. I.AM.DETAILED. And for all of my couples boudoir sessions, I meet with my clients in person or via Zoom BEFORE the shoot to make sure everyone is comfortable and everyone’s energy is on point.

Why Every Couple Needs Couple Boudoir Photos

You have the pretty engagement photos, the gorgeous wedding photos, and make no mistake, you now need the steamy couples photos that show you made it through the honeymoon phase. Ok honeyyyyyyy, I got you. We’re gonna show the world the love and passion you have for each other. 

It will be flirty and it will be fun, and it will be professional just like all of your other photo shoots. 

I am here to plan this out with you, the whole way through so that not only is it a kick-ass shoot, but it’s an opportunity for you to connect with your partner in a safe, intimate way.

How To Get The Most Out of a Couple’s Boudoir Session

My favorite piece of advice to give to my clients is to practice looking at themselves in a mirror. Hello Kate Moss and Mark Wahlberg and your Calvins. Time to be a supermodel for Vogue. Just kidding. Practice doesn’t make perfect, but it does make it more comfortable to enact it in front of me. 

During my pre-consultation, I assign my couples a homework assignment. It’s not going to give you nightmarish flash backs of school holding a pencil, but it will give you a chance to make some sexy, some cute, some crazy heart eyes to your partner. Chances are you’re going to end up in giggles, but to me, it’s always best to get those laughs out of the way instead of on your special day.

Couple Boudoir - Do you have to go nude?

Clients always ask me, what should we wear to our shoots? Definitely clothes, for sure, and I have some robes you can put on when you get here to avoid in line marks on your skin. Wardrobe is not that important for the way I shoot. We can make steamy out of a white t-shirt and blue jeans. 

Please do not come with anything neon or busy patterned, that’s a firm no from me. Some other ideas are a button down shirt, a tie, a belt, sweatpants or boxer briefs. 

There will be no nudity. I am not an explicit photographer. If you are asking me what my kink factor is on a scale of 1-10, I am probably a 3. If you are looking for someone to take explicit photos of you and your partner, I am respectfully, not your photographer.

What Is It Like To Have A Couples Boudoir Session with T. Marie Creative?

Whether it’s young lust, newly married or celebrating your 10 year anniversary, most couples want a picture that properly showcases them and their love for each other. A couples boudoir photoshoot gives you a peek at intimacy behind closed doors and what really thrills you and your partner. And while you may be wondering what goes on during a couples shoot, all the juicy details… 

SURPRISE! There are none. Nada. Zilch. I work really hard to create a tailored experience in a safe and fun environment for each one of my clients. The images I create are also posed and made to look ‘oh so steamy’, but in reality, we are giggling and laughing behind the scenes. 

Creating sexy is not really spicy when creating it on demand – maybe a couple boobs and booty grabs from your partner, but hot and heavy is not what you’re thinking about while holding various poses. I see many side eyes and mischievous smiles, while laughing between takes that they can’t believe they are doing this or asking each other if they wore deodorant or brushed their teeth. LOL. 

I want all of my couples boudoir shoot clients to know that this will be a liberating, empowering, and fun photoshoot, but it will also be an ultra-professional one. I am absolutely here to celebrate you, your love, and your relationship – this is my favorite way to play with fire…

Take fun and intimacy to the next level with your partner…

I am a boudoir photographer who commonly gets asked to shoot couples for maternity boudoir sessions. I love that a partner is involved in this amazing time in a woman’s life and I want to support you in any way that I can. I will also photograph couples outside of maternity IF the fit is right.

I MUST be clear. I am a boudoir photographer who believes in the artistic nature of boudoir. Sometimes couples blur what is boudoir with other forms of art. I do not photograph pornography.
