Utah Boudoir Photography Testimonials

I am planning to surprise my husband with some boudoir photos for our upcoming wedding anniversary and am considering using your services. I have looked through your website and really like your style. 😉 Most of the boudoir photographers I’ve looked at are a little more conservative than you, as far as I can tell. I really want to give my husband some HOT pictures 😉 Right now I’ve asked a few boudoir photographers if I can see a couple full galleries of their clients’ boudoir shoots. I’ve noticed that sample galleries they show are often much different than what the whole set of proofs looks like. If any of your clients have given you permission to share their galleries I would love to view a couple. It would really help me to make my decision. Could you also tell me a little bit about the cost for your sessions and what is included with that fee? Thanks so much!

Hello Jen.

I am sending you a link to a recent gallery that I have added to my website. I have a price list page on my site as well. I am including that link to. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely,

Richard

Hello Richard,

My name is Michael. I have been looking at your website and have some questions for you. I was wondering if you do this type of photography for men as well. I would like to do this for my wife for Valentines Day. She did this for me a few years back and she has always hinted around that she would like me to do it for her. So that is what I’m looking to do.
I hope you can help me out.

Thanks

Michael

Hello Michael.

Yes, I would be more than happy to photograph you “Just For Her”. I have photographed men in the past for their wives.

Sincerely,

Richard

Dear Richard

I am looking at doing an intimate photo shoot as a surprise and sexy wedding gift for my partner. And also just for me too. I am 30 and in good shape but not a model like the great photos shown on your site. I am apprehensive about this but at the same time looking to do some very sexy erotic photos too. It’s quite an exciting prospect but taking my clothes off in front of another guy is a bit different! There multiple questions running round my mind many too crazy to ask but here are a few… Do you keep all the photos confidential? How long have you being doing this? It seems very intimate and would you be ok with a novice? I would want my photos to look naturally erotic rather than just posed. Many of your photos look great btw and the kind of thing I am thinking of. I don’t have much confidence but can send a photo if it helps? I don’t want to waste your time if this ends up not being for me.

Marie

Hello Marie.

First of all, the vast majority of my clients are novices like yourself. Most of them had never done this type photography before either. You are in good company. I do keep all my  clients work confidential. I have been doing this type of photography since 1987. Most of the women you saw on my website had the very same concerns that you have  expressed. I would recommend a consultation in my studio. Please feel free to call me at 801-604-0426.

Sincerely,

Richard

Dear Richard

Thanks for mailing me so soon. I am very nervous about this and too embarrassed to pick up the phone I guess until I get my embarrassing questions are out-of-the-way first of all. I understand if this is a bit of a pain and understand if you are too busy to reply. The photos look good though I am looking for sexier images of myself. I’ve got some straight forward questions and some embarrassing ones:

  1. I wondered if it would be possible to bring a friend along with me. or
    do you think this would be a distraction?
  2. I was wondering what kind of Lingerie and Outfits would work best?
    Do you do Make up or have an assistant that does it or would I need to
    bring mine with me and do it myself on set including hair.
  3. I assume that the photos on your site had the permission on the client
    to be shown. I wouldn’t want my photos shown unless I couldn’t be identified!
  4. I haven’t done anything at all like this so I am going to need a lot
    Direction, ideas for poses and that kind of stuff. Will this be ok
    especially if the poses are erotic I don’t think it will happen
    naturally for me and will need a big push and coaching.
  5. Will it make the photos sexier or better in some way if I am fully
    shaven. Stupid question! Just noticed a lot of your photos look that way.

I am going to be very Nervous as it will be the first time I’ve been naked in front of another man. Especially not one telling me to take my panties off! LOL! I want the photos to look naturally arousing rather than to posed. I don’t know if this is achievable.bye… Marie

Hello Marie.

I hope that my responses to your questions and concerns will help to put you at ease. I am never too busy to reply to your inquiries. I think it would be a good idea to bring a friend to the portrait session. A lot of my clients do this. It helps to ease the tension and apprehension on the client’s part. The lingerie and outfits that work best are entirely up to your  preference. I always recommend bringing clothing that belongs to him. For instance, military, sporting attire, etc are always a good idea. I have outfits that you may use as well. I would recommend an initial consultation prior to the portrait session. It is a good idea to discuss issues such as clothing, etc.

I never post photos of my clients without their permission.

The majority of all posing and direction is under my control and discretion. I don’t assume the client has any idea what to do in this area. However, having said this, I am always open to suggestions and ideas from my clients during the portrait session.

As far as shaving, I would leave that to your discretion. I would recommend to do whatever you and he prefers. I completely understand your embarrassment and concerns with regards to disrobing in front of another man. I prefer to think of it as disrobing for him. Even though he won’t be there, you are doing for him (and yourself).

I hope this helps you in making your decision to have me do this intimate portrait session for you.
All my clients have told me how comfortable they felt during my Romantic Portrait sessions. I believe you will completely enjoy this type of portrait session as well.

I do have a hair and makeup artist that I work with. She comes to the studio and pamper you in the dressing room prior to the photo session.

Sincerely,

Richard

HI!

I ran across your website and am really interested in your photography! Finally a Boudoir photographer that isn’t afraid to push the limits! I am curious however, if the photo’s you have on your website are recent photos? I am a contemporary girl who is 24 years old and likes the modern look. Some of your backdrops and props are not what I am looking for but your photography skills are. I was wondering if you have other locations you might shoot at or more recent photo shoots that were at a different location that client’s have authorized you to use to share their photos. I have been searching and searching for a photographer that does boudoir photos but will also allow to clients to be photographed nude and photographed in various risqué positions. I have done one boudoir photo shoot and the hubs loved it but he has mentioned a time or two it he wanted another one that looked more like playboy or hustler:-D Just more risqué. Please let me know if you would be able to help me. Thank you very much.

Morgan

Hello Morgan.

Thank you for the compliments on my photography. Most of the images on my website are a few years old. I am always willing to do portrait sessions on location. I am even willing to add new sets to my studio in order to create a new and contemporary look.

I do have much more samples of my work at my studio. Several of my clients ask that I do not post their portraits on the website, however, they have given me permission to show their photos in the confines of my office. I always honor my clients when I am requested how I may show the portraits taken of them.

I am not afraid to “push the limits”. I never have been. Please call me at my studio and I would be happy to discuss the possibilities of a photo shoot with you.

Sincerely,

Richard

Richard,

I am going to pose for some pictures for my husband’s Christmas or Valentines gift, depending on when I can find a photographer.  I really like some of your work.  Classy and does not look “trashy” if that is worded correctly.

I have a few questions for you:

  1. The examples you have on your web page, are they real housewives or professional models?
  2. Also, I am looking for a playboy style with me laying on a bed or wrapped up in sheets…I noticed your examples look like they are all from the same set…do you have examples of other settings or props?  I think I will feel odd just standing there in the nude looking at the camera lens! I like poses where the person is looking away from the camera.  Does that make sense? And that is the type of photographer I am looking for.

Have a good day and thanks for your time,

Lisa

All the people on my website are housewives (so to speak). I do not use models to display my work. I actually have more sets than I have on my website. In addition, I am always open for requests for something different. Please let me know if you have any questions and feel free to call me anytime

Richard

Richard,

THANK YOU! As a stay at home house wife, I have wanted to do this for my husband for a long time! However, I have not been able to find a studio that I got a good feeling from. When I stumbled into your site I was impressed with the pictures, and your years of experience in this field. From the first time I contacted you, you were very attentive,
accommodating and easy to talk too. At the beginning of the shoot I was nervous, but you quickly put my nerves at ease and I was able to relax and ENJOY myself! Who would have thought that I would get something out of this too, not just my husband! The time you spent during the shoot and the attention to detail was evident in the end portraits. I would recommend you to anyone that wants to give the gift that HE will never forget!! Again, thank you for giving me an experience I will never forget. It has done wonders for my self-image! Plus, it has given my marriage an extra boost!

Richard,

I’m looking for information and pricing on your intimate photo shots. I just had a miscarriage after 8 months of pregnancy. So my body is less than appealing to myself and my confidence has been lost with the depression. So a friend of mine has suggested I get an intimate photo shot done. not only to help me like my body but to show my husband
I’m still sexy. I hope you can help me. I’ve never had a professional do my pictures before, and not one of this type. so I’m unsure as to what I’d need to do and bring. as well as what to expect. Then i also need pricing. Ill take any information you can give me.

Hello Erica,

My name is Richard and I thank you for contacting me for such a personal endeavor. First let me offer my condolences regarding your miscarriage. I know how difficult it can be. My wife had two when we were married. Anyway, my prices are listed on my website. I do have some outfits you may use for the shoot. I would also recommend bringing in your own outfits. Everything I shoot is digital. This allows me to enhance and retouch each image. You would be surprised at how much better you can look in a photograph that I create without making you look like someone else. Please call me and I would be happy to discuss any of possibilities of a creative photo shoot with you.

Thank you,

Richard

Dear Richard,

I am thinking about posing for boudoir photo session as a surprise gift to my husband for our 10 year anniversary.
I have never even thought about this before so as you can image I am a little nervous about the idea. Couple of questions:

  1. Can I buy all the pictures and retain all the rights to the photos? As you can image my first fear is that I do not have all the pictures.
    Are there any copies at all that I would not have?
  2. I am 42 and in good shape, but we all could use a little Photoshop of the pictures…do you do that to the final pictures?
  3. I have to ask….I am a little un-nerved about disrobing for a male photographer, do you employee a female photographer at your business?
    I am considering a few other photographers that are female, but I really like your work.
    The women in your pictures are all so beautiful and elegant looking.

Thanks,

Anna

Good Morning Anna.

My portrait studio is one of the most trusted studios for Intimate Photography in all of Utah. No other studio has an established reputation for this type of sensitive portraiture than Just For Him Photography.

Secondly, the benefit of having a male photographer as opposed to a female photographer, is the very reason you prefer my style of photography over the female photographer’s work.
Men are visual creatures (I am no different except that my idea of a nude or semi-nude woman is much more tasteful than what most men would initially consider). Women are not as pre-disposed visually as men are. Women tend to be much more verbal. I think this carries over into the portrait studio or hair salon, for that matter. While you would enjoy the photo session with female photographer with regards to conversation and verbal bonding. On a very different level, you would enjoy the photo session in my studio with regards
to feeling and looking beautiful and elegant.

As far as the copyrights are concerned, I maintain the rights to all my work whether it is wedding, portraiture, or any other type of photography. I am willing, however, to come to a written agreement with regards how any images will or will not be used. I have done this for many of my clients in the past. This is one reason I have never had any complaints with any of my past clients. With regards to copies, virtually all photographers today work with digital photography. In the day where we all used film, if you had possession of all the negatives, then you could be reasonably sure that you had complete control of any copies being made. This assumes that the photographer did not make an extra set of copies for him or herself before selling the negatives. Since virtually all photographers use digital photography, you can never be certain that you would have all the copies.
It is too easy to make copies with digital photos.

Sincerely,

Richard

Thanks for getting back to me,

I am at step 1 of maybe doing this, I just had the idea this week from reading about it in a women’s magazine about this being a new rage for brides. Couple of more follow-up questions: Most of the women I have seen in sample pictures look to be in their late 20 or 30….is 40 over the hill for this? Like I said I am in good shape, but not a model.

Also, if I do this it is a once in a life time event, so I want to do it right. Picking the perfect photographer seems to be the most important. In terms of pictures I am leaning towards an elegant Playboy style picture. Nothing vulgar but subtle full nudity. I noticed most of the women in your samples are just topless and that seems to be the case on other sites I have seen….is that the norm for boudoir pictures?

Hello Anna.

A lot of my clients are in their 40’s and some in their 50’s. Most of my client who have posed topless also posed full nude. For various reasons, I didn’t post them. My work is far more extensive than what is shown on my website.

Richard

Sorry to bother you again with yet another question, but I am so new to this stuff. This is a surprise for my husband celebrating our wedding anniversary. In your opinion is it best or do most of your clients tell their spouse prior to posing? Do they bring their spouse to the photo shoot?

I feel confident my husband will love the idea, but I am still posing nude. The examples on your web page are most of them married and did this for their spouse or just as a life experience? Thanks again and I promise not to bug you again with questions about posing!

Have a good day.

Anna

Good morning Anna.

First of all, you are not bother me with your question! I understand perfectly well where you are coming from. You have never done this before. You are considering having a “perfect stranger” photograph you in the nude. You have very legitimate concerns. You may email with as many questions as you feel necessary until you are
satisfied that you have enough information to move forward. With regards to my clients informing their spouse prior to the photo shoot, typically, when it is initially her idea for the portrait session, she comes in without his knowledge in order to surprise him. When it is his or their idea initially they usually come in together.
When they come in together, he usually offers a lot of “suggestions” for poses. Whether you come as a surprise for him or whether you come in together is entirely up to you, of course. If you do come in without him, feel free to bring a close friend as a lot of my clients have done in the past. You asked if most of my clients came in for their spouse or just a life experience? I would have to say they came in for both reasons combined.

Anna, please feel free to ask anything regarding the photo shoot or my experiences as a photographer. This is a very
sensitive venture for you. Practically every client I have ever had the same considerations you have now. You are in very good company.

Richard

You are what we are after.
