It's perfectly natural to feel apprehensive about a boudoir photo shoot. Don't worry! We are in your corner and we want you to love your photos. Here's what to expect from one of our sessions.
Whether you've decided to take the plunge or are on the fence, we offer free consultations with your photographer Laurie Granberg. Laurie has a ton of ideas and will collaborate with you on how your images will look. She'll schedule a coffee date with you at a local cafe and go over outfits, packages, pricing, products and the contract. There is no obligation to book and no pressure sales. We're excited about what we do and we want you to be excited too!
If you decide a boudoir shoot is what you want, a nonrefundable retainer of $150 is needed to reserve your spot. We then decide on a shooting date and start the prep work. PLEASE NOTE: Limited Edition Sessions and the Butterfly Kisses Package are slightly different. Check our blog post on these exclusive photo sessions for more information. Full payment will be required on shooting day. We do offer payment plans and if you decide to go that route, your shooting date will be scheduled on the day of final payment. Once your contracts are signed and final payment has been made we can start your photo shoot.
We love locations that are custom tailored to your kind of shoot. Catch A Kiss doesn't keep a permanent location. Instead we use a variety of high-end hotels, B&Bs and AirB&Bs. Sometimes our locations are outside but very private. Each shoot is different and the location reflects that.
Hair and Makeup
Nothing feels better than relaxing with a cool beverage while someone else takes care of the details. Our professional hair and makeup teams take the stress out of your preparation, making you look your very best for your photo shoot. PLEASE NOTE: The Bridal Boudoir Package is slightly different. Check our blog post on this photo session for more information.
Each package has a predetermined amount of shooting time. Don't know how to pose? Laurie will take care of everything so you can relax and feel beautiful during your shoot. This is your chance to shine and we are here for you!
When your session is over, we'll book an appointment to show you your photos. Due to a number of hacking incidents on other boudoir sites, we are not offering online galleries at this time. Your privacy is important to us. You'll choose your favourite photos and any products you want to add on at this time. If you want to consult with a friend or loved one, please bring them to this appointment. If there is any A La Carte items, payment will be required at this time to complete the order. We'll also give you an estimate on when your photos will arrive.
