BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY FAQ
Here you’ll find a list of our most frequently asked questions when it comes to boudoir photography. Don’t see your question answered here? Contact us to get an answer!
Will my images be shown on your website or on social media?
Your images will never (EVER!) be posted online without your permission. After your shoot we’ll send you over an email that discusses a model release, and you can say yes or no. We know not everyone wants their images online and we won't post your images without your 100 percent consent. We love to share client's stories with ladies who are thinking about shooting with us. So if you would like to be apart or our stories we would love to have you. If not that is alright too. We’re totally cool either way!
How do I choose my outfits?
Choose outfits that make you feel sexy and comfortable. We love when clients bring options, Especially since you may decide when you get there you find yourself having so much fun that you want to add an additional outfit! Whether you prefer bra and panty sets, boy shorts and a sweater or garters and a bustier, pick outfits that you love, in colours that are flattering and make sure that they fit you properly! Once you book your shoot and pay your deposit, you’ll receive an email outlining all the details on how to prepare for your shoot and wardrobe ideas.
What about hair and makeup, do I do it myself?
We have an amazing team of hair and make up artists. The camera wipes away more than half of a gal’s make up. I wish it were that easy to wash it off before bed! Our artist will have the proper coverage products to do the job.
Hair and make up service is a great add-on, if it isn't already included in your package Just adding on extra make up to yourself doesn't work, you need more coverage, more pigment, different colors. Chances are you booked this shoot to feel fabulous. Feel like a super model for the day! So why not add Professional Hair & Makeup Service? After all we want you to feel amazing and what is better than a little pampering! If you are interested in adding this service let us know when you book your session. Hair and Make up is only $85.
What happens if I purchase a Groupon and it expires before I can come in and shoot?
We love Groupons! Aren’t they fabulous deals! While allowing a voucher to expire means forfeiting the promotional value — essentially giving up the “deal” you will however, not lose the money you paid toward it. You will have a $99 credit to use on any of our full price packages Diva, Vixen or Bombshell through the expiring year.
How do I prepare for my shoot?
After your session has been booked and your session is secured with deposit, we send out a very detailed set of emails with information on how to prepare and what to bring. This way we ensure that you get all of the info you need to make your shoot spectacular!
Can I bring a friend to my shoot?
Generally we prefer to work one on one with our clients, simply because sometimes an ‘audience’ can make you feel more self conscious. Bringing a friend to your session lends a sense of security. We think its awesome to bring your best girl friend along! During the shoot, however, she will hang out in the lobby while your shoot is progressing. Viewings happen very soon after your session, and you will want time to review them. Friends and significant others are welcome to attend the viewing, If you must bring someone for moral support, please limit it to one person. Lastly based on the nature of what we shoot children are not allowed in the studio.
I’m ready to book a shoot, what’s next?
Choose your preferred package over on the Pricing page and then hit “BOOK NOW ” at the bottom of the page. You’ll be taken to our booking page and it will get you all booked in for your shoot. A NON-REFUNDABLE deposit is due when you sign up for your shoot and we take all major credit cards. The deposit does apply to your shoot balance or becomes a use or lose credit to apply towards additional images during your reveal
If I am late will I still get my full shooting time?
We strongly encourage you to be on time, because we may not be able to accommodate you if you’re late. We book multiple clients per day and our scheduling is based on every client being on time and shooting for their chosen package. Please note that we have a 15 minute late policy. Arriving more than 15 minutes late will be considered a no-show and you will be charged accordingly to the services scheduled. If you arrive less than 15 minutes late, your session could result in a shortened shooting time in order to accommodate others whose appointments follow yours. You will be responsible for the full session, regardless of any modifications made to account for late arrival. As a courtesy and consideration to your Hair and Make up artist, Photographer and other clients, please plan accordingly and be on time.
If I can’t make my shoot date, can I reschedule?
Absolutely. We require a minimum of 7 days notice to reschedule a shoot. When you book you will be asked to agree to our Cancellation/No Show and Late policies before your booking is secured, we block off those hours to work with you, thus turning away people interested in shooting that day and time. -Cancellations under 7 business days or No shows will result in losing your $50 retainer: to reschedule will require a $25 rescheduling fee
-Rescheduling less than 48 hours before your scheduled appointment will result in losing $25 of the deposit credit.
-Deposits and rescheduling fees are non refundable
How long do you keep the images?
Due to the nature and sensitivity of this style of shooting. Your images are only saved in our back up for 60 days from your shoot date. After 60 days the images are distroyed for their privacy and protection.
What is your refund policy?
Due to the custom nature of photography, the session price and any products ordered are non-refundable.
Where do the shoots take place?
One of the biggest benefits of shooting with Adoralee is you shoot in our studios. We have two location, Our Boudoir Lofts in downtown Norman and Tulsa. Shoots are done by appointment only. Once we get you booked we will send over the address with directions.
