Millions of people ask Fash for cost estimates every year. We track the estimates they get from local professionals, then we share those prices with you.

Boudoir photography is usually intended for a private audience, and the goal of the session is to produce photographs that are suggestive rather than explicit.

Many do it as a present for their romantic partners, often marking a romantic occasion or an upcoming long separation. Other do it so they can see themselves in a different, more desirable light.

On average, expect to pay $100-$250/hour for boudoir photography.

General Cost

The cost of your boudoir session will depend on a number of factors, including the breadth of experience of the photographer, studio costs, location, and the final number and type of images you want.

Nancy-Jo Photography in Wake Forest, NC, charges $100 for a 50-minute studio shoot. Packages start at $400.

James Corwin Johnson Photography in Sarasota, FL, charges a flat $100/hour for shoot time and post production. The Studio in Stoneham, MA, charges $300 for an hour’s studio portrait sitting. The price includes $100 toward your print order. He offers photo packages or a la carte prices.

Packages: A 10-30% discount

It will always work out cheaper to buy a package rather than single, a la carte photos; unless you only want one or two photos out of the session.

Sweet Plum Photography in Tamps, FL, says session prices start at $150 with packages at $600, and she states, “The typical clients spend about $1,200 for their session and artwork. ” She also offers discounts for military families and rewards referrals.

Jessica Crawford Photography in Raleigh, NC, has a package for $350 which includes “phone and/or e-mail consultations, up to two hours of shooting time, unlimited wardrobe changes, ten hours of creative editing and retouching, and 20–25 artistically edited images, as well as unedited images.”

Christina Houser Photography in Bristol, CT, offers all-inclusive, one-hour boudoir shoots at $175, to include styling, set, and wardrobe changes and 40 high-res images to view online.

Sarah J Photography in Weymouth, MA, charges a $300 portrait session fee for an hour’s studio portrait sitting. The price includes $100 toward your choice of prints and products and complimentary web resolution files for all purchased products.

Looking for a boudoir photographer?

Now that you have an idea of the price range, let's find the right boudoir photographer for you.

Get Started

Photo Delivery

Expect to have to wait anywhere from a few days to a few weeks to get your final images, because any good photographer is going to do some retouching work on your boudoir photos. Lighting, skin tone, and any other issues with each image are fixed, and photographers will send you the final selection to choose from, or you can see them in person at the studio.

Depending on how many images you signed up to receive, you can choose your favorites and receive them as prints (in the sizes quoted), digital downloads, or in an album.

Your photographer owns the full copyright on all your images and may use them on websites, print books, etc. as he or she pleases. While it’s highly unusual for a boudoir photographer to do this because of the private nature of the images, mention this if it’s not something you are comfortable with in advance.

In order of average cost, photos can be delivered in a number of ways:

  1. Digital download
  2. USB/thumb drive with photos ready to download to your computer or TV
  3. Choose and order photos from photographer’s cloud storage
  4. Prints
  5. Albums – usually included in a package price

A photography always owns the copyright to your photos, just like an author owns the copyright to a book he or she writes, and you will find very few willing to include the copyright to yours without a huge additional cost.

All photos on this site are mine (unlike many studios and you can be sure that you will get a good result)
(© Photographer Alexey Nikolsky) photo session… Dream. . Let's make it come true.

This is your day, today, you are a princess, the most beautiful girl on the planet and every stroke of a make-up artist's brush will be especially pleasant.

Or vice versa, provocatively and cheerfully. nine0005

Do you want this?

This is all real, if you plan your wedding day correctly and do not appoint a registry office for some reason at standard midday time, then morning in bliss is quite real.
We will discuss with you at the meeting how to plan your day correctly. This is an important issue and largely depends on the plans and logistics on that day.

All photos on the site @photographer Alexey Nikolsky

Do I need to shoot the morning of the bride (groom)

Morning is a part of any wedding. In any case, you will be going. Why not make it beautiful. nine0027

Fear of many brides: “Oh, I don’t need any morning of the bride, here’s another, take pictures of me when I’m just getting ready” (I’m not wearing makeup, I’m ugly, etc. ) .😉
I start shooting the morning of the bride when the stylist has already gathered you. You choose the image for the shooting yourself, it can be a delicate dressing gown or a boudoir dress, no one will bother you to get ready.

But this is the best time to take cute and tender photos. It will also be very nice to take invitations, and other interesting details for shooting. nine0005

I always advise you to start shooting your wedding in the morning of the bride.

  1. You will get beautiful portraits with fresh make-up and hair.
  2. You will get used to the fact that the camera is filming you (it doesn’t happen every day) and you will be able to relax and there will be no tense faces during the joint shooting .
  3. You can easily coordinate with the photographer the angle from which you want to take pictures.
  4. In the morning there is an opportunity to take pictures of all the wedding details. (bouquet, garter, rings)

How and where to organize the bride's morning

Where the bride's morning is usually spent and filmed:

Traditionally, the bride is gathered at home, then the groom comes home to pick her up, and a ransom takes place at the entrance.
(Speaking of the ransom in the article Why do we need a bride ransom)
Not the best scenario, but quite possible. But there are other options as well.

Idea for shooting the bride's morning (alternative)

The wedding day is often hectic, and when girls see that in order to shoot the bride's morning they have to get up at 3 in the morning, they panic. nine0005

And you can get a beautiful shooting in a hotel or studio not on the wedding day, but in advance, for example, on the day of the make-up rehearsal.

After the make-up rehearsal, you can arrange for yourself a little gentle shooting in the studio or at the hotel, saving time and effort on the wedding day.

You can arrange a dress fitting, a small photo session with a young man and make souvenirs for guests by the wedding day.

If you have any questions, I am ready to answer them (for Moscow and the region)

  • Help in choosing locations for the morning and walk.
  • Drawing up a rational holiday schedule.
  • Photography and videography.
  • Assistance in organizing a turnkey wedding.
  • Help with finding a venue, restaurant, cafe for the celebration.
  • Proven contractors: make-up artists, hosts, coordinators.
  • Write to one of the messengers and I will help you answer many questions that you have when organizing a wedding. nine0004

Consultations are free

in a hotel room (hotels)

For weddings in Moscow, this is one of the best options

  1. The time of movement around the city is reduced - you can consider options closer to the registry office, the venue for the wedding photo session, the restaurant, the house of the bride or groom. nine0008
  2. A variety of interiors allows you to choose the most comfortable for yourself, eliminating the inconvenience and all unnecessary. It is not necessary, as at home, to take out excess furniture from the room, remove pots of geraniums from the windowsills, lock the dog in another room, etc.
  3. A hotel room eliminates unnecessary fuss. Better to spend the morning calmly. A good rest, thoughtful preparations and a spectacular solemn exit in a good mood will be provided to you.


  1. Quietly, in the room only you are a make-up artist, a photographer and a beloved friend or mother to help. There are no extra people.
  2. The suitcases for the wedding and the suitcase for vacation were packed yesterday, in sound mind and memory, in the morning there is no need to worry about this topic.
  3. You can always call the maid and she will help you steam your dress or wipe up spilled coffee.
  4. Significantly reduces the time to travel around the city. You can choose a hotel much closer to the place of shooting, registry office, restaurant. nine0008
  5. A variety of interiors in hotels allows you to choose the most successful option.
  6. No need to think about where to hide the suitcases, the dog, or the grandmother during the gathering 🙂

Everything is clean and neat


  1. Room price.
    Not always an expensive number and good for shooting are synonyms. It happens that an expensive room with a great view.
    For a good shot, it is important to look at the room itself, and not at the stardom or prestige of the hotel. nine0002 1. It is quite possible to find a good and not very expensive hotel within the MCC, or a little further. (I will definitely show you at the meeting).
    2. You can find a hotel with good rooms, but you pay by the hour.
    3 . An alternative to a hotel room is to find an apartment through “airbnb”

  2. There are no parents nearby, it seems illogical that the parents are not with their daughter at this time.

    ( Although, who is stopping them from calling them to the end of the training camp? Who is stopping them from starting to celebrate with mom in the morning? :))

Hotels for the bride's gathering in Moscow

There are many good hotels in Moscow where you can spend your wedding.
Some hotels offer a special wedding package for newlyweds (If you celebrate a wedding in a hotel restaurant, then the room is free), but it is better to decide whether or not to take it on the spot.

The main thing to understand is that the hotel should be convenient for shooting and fit the overall style of your wedding.

Ideally, in the hotel of your choice, you can use not only the room, but also the halls for photography (in case of rain). Apartments lose out in this respect. nine0005

When I know about your wishes and about your itinerary, I can advise which hotel to choose.

5 tips for choosing a hotel for the bride's wedding reception
  1. Choose everything in advance. You don't have to put everything off until the last day.
    When you find a hotel you like on the websites, find out if the hotel has special offers for the morning of the bride.
    Some, even luxurious hotels are quite ready to do this. nine0027 Choose from the proposed upper floors. Often the higher the lighter the number, and this is often important. The color of the walls depends on your wishes, but it is better if it is white, or milky or brown (under the old tree). Worse if red, pink or bright yellow. ( flowered or striped )
  2. The main criteria for choosing a number for training camps are good, even lighting and size.
    It can be both studios and apartments. Both the photographer and the stylist need good lighting in the room .

    The dimensions of the number are important so that both the stylist, the photographer and the videographer can work simultaneously without interfering with each other.
    Preferably the area of ​​the room should be from 20-25 m2, more is better, especially if you have a big dress.

  3. When booking, be sure to go to the room in person. Photos often do not give an idea of ​​the room as a whole. In the photo, it often looks larger than in reality.
  4. It's up to you to choose a number in light or dark colors. But I would warn you against rooms with red (pink) walls and brightly colored furniture, if this is not included in the concept of the wedding. nine0008
  5. What else to look for when choosing a hotel
    Find out in advance about parking spaces in the hotel car park. Perhaps they will also be needed by your guests or professionals serving you: a photographer, videographer, stylist.

What should the bride take with her to the hotel on the morning of the bride?

Replacement shoes

For a comfortable wedding day, be sure to have another pair of shoes ready. Usually these are white ballet flats. They will definitely come in handy for a walk in nature and in a restaurant. nine0005

What to wear to the bride's gathering at the hotel.

I am writing about this just below . 👇

You may need a full-length mirror, and preferably not in the bathroom 🙂 ( Yes, some hotels have it)

Accessories for the morning of the bride

Most often, all accessories can be made by yourself. (decorators, of course, will come up with something more interesting, but this is one of the cost items that can be painlessly saved). Agree, there is not a single item in the picture (except for the bouquet) that you cannot make or assemble in advance at home on your own. nine0005

Except dress hanger. But if it is not there, then any white hanger from ikea will do.

Usually I always discuss with the bride what and how we will do and I will always help if necessary.

A complete list of accessories that you may need to capture the morning of the bride and groom.


For the bride:

  • Bridal bouquet
  • Veil
  • Eau de toilette
  • Robe, peignoir or dress to match the wedding
  • Earrings
  • Necklace
  • Engagement ring
  • Wedding printing (wedding invitation, seating plan, menu, etc. in one copy)
  • Printed photos with
  • shoes
  • Wedding rings in a box0008
  • Men's cologne
  • Shoes
  • Tie or bow tie
  • Cufflinks
  • Watches

Accessories play a big role in wedding photography! Each element is part of your story.

2 Morning of the bride at home, in the apartment.


  • no need to spend money on a collection area.
  • Everything is at hand and in the usual places. Houses and walls are soothing.
  • Parents see their daughter out of the house - it seems to be the way it should be


  • Relatives walk around and give advice.
  • Everything that has not been collected since the evening (we always think there will be time in the morning) is collected in a hurry.
  • A lot of fuss
  • To get a beautiful shooting, you need to tidy up everything in the apartment.

Everyone's apartment and house is different, so it always makes sense to discuss the location of the morning shot.
You can rent fees even in a small apartment - a studio without a chic renovation, the main thing is that it has a place where no one bothers us to shoot. i.e. there should be no one in this apartment except for the participants in the shooting, and preferably its area (apartments or rooms) should be at least 17-20 sq. m.

If you have a lot of guests, it is better to rent a hotel room. But no one bothers to invite your mother or girlfriend to the training camp at the hotel.

Is the bride gathering alone or call her mother, girlfriend?

If you decide to get together without a groom, then I advise you to call your mother or girlfriend (both at home and at the hotel and at the studio). You will be more comfortable this way.
There will be someone to drink a glass of and shabby. It is convenient when someone is nearby, you can always ask for something to give, bring, while you are sitting in an armchair and your hair is being done. nine0005

You can take a lot of pictures with your girlfriends and mom. Yes, and mom will be pleased, and photos with mom will remain as a keepsake.

Or you can call your girlfriends and have a mini bachelorette party. (only you need to plan the time for everything in advance)

3. Morning of the bride in the photo studio

Good, not the best option. The studio is not a living space and it shows. Yes, there are many interior studios now, but often 4-5 hours of an interior studio are more expensive than a good hourly hotel. nine0005

In addition, a photo studio often means that for a wedding it needs to be decorated with flowers, and this is also money.

If you decide to organize the bride's morning in a photo studio, I will help you choose a studio.

It makes sense when you take a loft for the whole day and spend both shooting and on-site registration and a banquet there.
More about this option in the article “Organizing a wedding in a loft“


  • No one interferes, just like in a hotel, but it is not necessary to rent for a day
  • A meeting of the bride and groom can also be arranged in a photo studio. (I will also help with the scenario of the meeting)


  • The studio is filmed for a certain number of hours, and all photography takes place at a very fast pace. The picture is beautiful, but not at all blissful..:)
  • To create the perfect decor, it is better to organize in the studio / loft not only shooting, but the whole day. If you are interested, I will tell you everything at the meeting. nine0008

What is the groom doing while I am working with the bride?

If your man does not mind, you can also arrange a photo session for him “morning of the groom” in the next hotel room or in his house, where he spends the night that very night.
In the wedding book for the fees of each, it will be possible to single out the spread.
Usually, shooting the morning of the groom is shorter than the morning of the bride. Most often, we fit in about 30 minutes.

If you have already submitted an application to the registry office, for the morning or afternoon, but decided to do the morning of the bride, or you, you like to sleep and don’t want to get up early, what to do? nine0004

You can arrange a staged photo shoot “ morning of the bride ” by combining it, for example, with a make-up and hair rehearsal.

Non-standard places for gatherings of the bride

Some bridal salons where you buy and store a wedding dress allow you to gather at your place. Often they even have quite a decent room for fees

There are fees in beauty salons.

The advantages of this approach are obvious - these places are free for you, the disadvantages are also obvious,
Usually these are very small rooms, other brides can gather nearby.

Ordering a wedding photographer is very easy.
  • Help in choosing locations for the morning and walk.
  • Drawing up a rational holiday schedule.
  • Photography and videography.
  • Assistance in organizing a turnkey wedding.
  • Help with finding a venue, restaurant, cafe for the celebration. nine0073
  • Proven contractors: make-up artists, hosts, coordinators.
  • Write to one of the messengers and I will help you answer many questions that you have when organizing a wedding.

Consultations are free

together with the groom. nine0083

Don't refuse to shoot joint fees!

They have their own charm!

It's always fun, gentle, sensual and no less exciting!

If traditions are not important, then it's just that you two get together as usual. You can even start like this.

Or even so in the bath or in the pool:

And also the opportunity to share this excitement of preparation together, all these quivering minutes together!

And generally start the wedding day with kisses,
Take a shower together, have a delicious breakfast - isn't life a success?

This is how you can start your morning in a hotel, at home, in a studio or loft.

The advantages of this approach are obvious:
1. no need to spend money on 2 beautiful numbers
2. You can shoot a beautiful story of two from the very beginning of the day.

And if the gathering is in a small one-room apartment, and you don't want the groom to see you in makeup and in a dress while you're not ready.
There is only one option here, first we film the groom's preparations, we send him to wait in the car, and then I film the bride's preparations. nine0005

Shooting in the morning is the best time to take pictures with your pets. (dogs, cats, etc.)

Animals on the wedding day are often left at home, or in the care of friends. Shooting in the morning is the best time to shoot with your four-legged family members.

Brides' most common objection to shooting fees.

— We live in a rented apartment, not renovated.
I'm not here to rent an apartment for sale, but you. It is necessary to put a little order in the apartment, no more than just a weekly cleaning. nine0027 We won't film everything else. But a hotel room (or apartment) is easier to rent, and you will be calmer there.

- It's expensive to rent a hotel room.
A hotel room in Moscow, if you don't take 5-star hotels, can be found for 3-5 thousand and quite decent, in addition, there are apartments. It's not expensive at all. I can guide if needed. (we'll talk more about the different options below).
— I’m embarrassed to shoot in lingerie
It’s not at all necessary to shoot the bride’s morning in lingerie or something transparent. (Although it happened in my practice even without lingerie.)
The choice of clothes is always yours . It can be bathrobes, pajamas. So everything will be just fine.

Do not worry, nothing “forbidden” will be posted on the Internet, everything will be only after agreement with you.
You are primarily doing this shoot for yourself.

What to wear for the morning of the bride

Negligees, light silk, translucent boudoir dresses or dressing gowns will do. (I can always advise where to find it). nine0005

If you are embarrassed to shoot in lingerie or something translucent , (especially if the photographer is a man), there are many options for what to wear so as not to be shy.

It can be pajamas, with trousers or shorts, and light silk dresses (not necessarily short)
If you spend the morning in a hotel, you can always use hotel robes.

But it is important to note that the dressing gown for the training camp should not be multi-colored or with flowers, polka dots, etc.

Ideal if it is light, pastel colors, or white. Clothing can also be colored, especially if it matches the color of the wedding (red, blue, blue), but not multi-colored.
Most importantly, choose things in which you feel like yourself, in which you like yourself.

How long does it take to shoot the bride's preparations

If by shooting the preparations and the morning you mean a report from the preparations , then 40-60 minutes will be enough to capture the final touches of makeup and the lacing of the dress, but if we are talking about a small boudoir photo session, then approximately 2 hours. (This includes approximately 30 minutes of dressing and lacing the dress)

Approximate timing of the bride's morning.

(you need to adapt to your time)

  • Suppose, in 7-00 , a make-up artist
  • arrives from about 7-10 to 10 hours of the bite with the make-up artist (Mike Hair)
  • to 9-15 it makes sense to invite a photographer (videographer) for hours so that he can take the finishing touches.
  • If you are going at home or in a hotel with the groom, then approximately 9-20 - 10-00 groom's fees, if you are going separately, then the photographer takes the finishing touches and various wedding details (dresses, rings, bouquet, etc.). ) nine0008
  • 10-00 the finishing touches of the bride’s gathering, if a small boudoir photo shoot is scheduled, then we allocate an hour for this from 10 to 11
  • Approximately at 11 o’clock meeting of the bride and groom (if the collection is separate)

It is desirable that during the shooting there should not be many guests in the place (room) where we will be doing staged shooting.
It will be easier for you when your parents or aunts do not pester you with questions and quibbles. nine0005

And it is desirable that by the time such shooting begins, all those present, including the bride, should already be beautiful with hair and make-up.

We will not get the desired result in staged shooting if I shoot the bride at one end of the room, and my mother or girlfriends are combed at the other end of the room. (This is especially important to take into account in small hotel rooms)

Costs for the morning of the bride

Costs primarily depend on the location. ( Hotel room, photo studio, loft )
By staying at home, you certainly save money, but instead you get all the disadvantages of home fees.

In the most common version, there are no additional costs. Coffee, ice cream or a bottle of champagne for two is more of a pleasure than an expense. 🙂

Who else is needed for morning preparations

In order not to spoil the morning of the wedding day, a good stylist is important. Who will arrive without delay and with a smile will do what they planned. If you are looking for such a person, then I will gladly recommend you. nine0005

A few extra tips for the bride's morning routine

Wedding dress tags and labels

Don't forget to cut the tags and labels from all new clothes and accessories beforehand. Check the soles of your new shoes for a price sticker. nine0005

Important Items

Take with you all the items you may need for the shooting camp. (for example, a wedding invitation, rings, some souvenir dear to your heart.
It is better to collect all the little things and shoes in one place so that the visiting photographer can not distract you from makeup and start his work.

Morning breakfast

I recommend have breakfast before the stylists arrive, or at least before the stylists start working. And don't ruin your makeup and you won't have shots with a sandwich.While you have breakfast, invite the maid to clean the room and make the bed.

Drink less, even water

I strongly recommend that brides drink less on their wedding day, especially before the main photo session. This will help to avoid excessive sweating, and going to the toilet afterwards in a dress is not very convenient.

Don't worry

Let everything go as it goes. Whatever happens, this is your day. I have seen different weddings and I know how to get out of certain situations, and moreover, I know how not to get into them. nine0005
