How to Shoot Boudoir Photos Without Having Your Own Studio

Blog by Jada Parrish | How To


If you're just getting started in the boudoir world, chances are you probably don't have access to your own studio yet. Don't let that stop you! There are still so many places you can shoot and things you can do without having your own studio.

When I first started shooting boudoir, I used the guest bedroom in our tiny apartment as my studio. Sometimes you just have to work with what you have, but doing that for a few years helped me build my portfolio and made it possible for me to get a studio of my very own.

Here are some options for the studio-less boudoir photographer!

 

Use a guest bedroom

I'm guessing most of you have a guest bedroom somewhere in your home. Go all out with decorating and styling to create your dream boudoir set. Play fun music, set up a dressing room/makeup area, and make sure your home is incredibly clean!

 

Book a hotel room

This is a great option, especially if your client is looking for a luxurious boudoir experience. You can allow your client to rent a hotel room on their own or build the cost into your package. 

 

Shoot outdoors

Give outdoor boudoir a shot! These are some of our very favorite shoots to feature. Find a secluded field, river, beach, wooded area and go crazy. Some weding venues will even allow you to shoot bridal boudoir there. 

 

Rent a studio for the day

Many photographers and event venues allow their studios to be rented. The rates are usually pretty reasonable and provide you with a space to shoot that has a little more personality than a hotel room.

 

Air B&B

There are so many cool and quirky lofts, houses, condos, and apartments on Air B&B. This did not exist when I was first starting out, and I wish it had! There is so much possibility. No matter what you are looking for, I guarantee you can find the perfect bouoir spot on their site.
