Originally a still-life art form, boudoir photography switched to human subjects when clothiers stopped making apple-size garter belts. Bite the fruits of seduction this Christmas and Valentine’s Day with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get a boudoir photography package at Black Dress Boudoir (a $284.08 value). Each package includes the following:

  • 90-minute photo shoot
  • 8”x10” print
  • Five 4”x6” prints

Black Dress Boudoir’s photographers capture the sensual sides of women and couples within the privacy of a 1,600-square-foot boudoir studio. On the day of the shoot, photographers can assist customers in picking out their most flattering outfits and preferred backdrop and set. Subjects frolic before the flashing lights in 90-minute sessions, and the couple guides them through sultry poses and seductive facial expressions. After shoots, customers receive prints of several images from the session, which they may distribute as gifts to close loved ones or estranged houseplants. Though not included with the Groupon, customers can pay an additional fee for an on-location shoot or professional-makeup application.

Black Dress Boudoir

The husband-and-wife team behind Black Dress Boudoir know how love and photography can intersect. Sparks tend to fly when their cameras flash, illuminating the vast interior of their boutique studio. During private boudoir photo shoots, the couple empowers women to strike poses that capture the sexy, seductive side of love. They have been doing this for long enough to know that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes; rather than wrestle their clients into a one-size-fits-all template, they emphasize their natural features to create photographs that feel more at home tucked under a pillow than within the pages of a mass-marketed magazine. Black Dress Boudoir’s boudoir photo sessions aren’t just about the results. From start to finish, they pamper their clients by helping them select sexy outfits, guiding them through the various poses, and spraying them with a fire hose when things get too hot.

Customer Reviews

Most fun in years, very professional.
Dan A. · June 24, 2012
Very professional. The photographer made things very comfortable
Jennifer C. · December 25, 2011
I was a bit afraid to do something like this, but Christie made it feel so natural. I was also sure she would actually end up being some creep in a dark room, luring in unsuspecting women, but she was, in fact, a woman. And a super personable one at that! I definitely recommend using her for this type of session, but she also has a typical photo studio and does a fantastic job.
