How old were you at your session?28

What made you decide to book a session?
I have been watching Jes and Emily's Boudoir page for over a year now. I saw their work and how amazing all of the photos were. Ever since I found the Boudoir page I had wanted to book a session to have beautiful photos like these of me but never really thought I would due to the cost. Then after I got engaged I thought this would be an amazing wedding gift for my future husband and I had wanted photos like these for a while now. Then when I went to the wedding expo I saw the Boudoir booth all set up and I just couldn't help but take the leap and book a session with these ladies!

Engagement Boudoir

What was originally holding you back from booking a session?
One of the things that was holding me back was the cost of the photos and session. Then part of it was I wanted to get into better shape even though we are all perfect the way we are. However, once I saw the booth at the wedding expo I decided I just needed to do it!

What were you most nervous about for your session?
I wouldn't say I was nervous, I was very excited and couldn't wait for my session! If I had to pick something that I was nervous about I guess I would have to say it would be trying to picking out the perfect outfits.

Describe your experience.
When I walked into the studio I was greeted by Jes and Emily. They were both very kind and helpful. They showed me the closet and let me try on outfits and narrow it down to my favorites. Then of course I couldn't decide on my 4 outfits because I loved too many so they helped me pick the best ones that worked for my body type, skin tone and style. After we picked my outfits Jes found shoes in my size to match each one along with a necklace while Emily did my hair and makeup. After hair and makeup was done I put on my first outfit and Jes got to work! We had so much fun posing, talking, laughing and hangout. After the session I changed back into my street cloths, we took a fun Polaroid photo and they even gave me a little gift to take home.

How did you feel about yourself after your session?
I felt amazing! I had such a wonderful time at my session and I defiantly would love to do another in the future. I felt like a model and a million bucks! These ladies make you feel so beautiful and perfect in every way no matter what.
After my (secret) session, since I was all dolled up and my endorphins were high I called my fiancé and said I wanted to go out on a date that night. So we went out to dinner and he couldn't stop staring at me :)

What would you tell anyone interested, but maybe hesitant, in book a session of their own?
Just do it! You will not regret it one bit! I had so much fun at my session that I want to do another in the future. These ladies make you feel so comfortable and beautiful. I am so happy that I finally booked a session with these amazing ladies.

How was working with Jes and Emily?
Jes and Emily were amazing and so wonderful. They helped me with anything I needed and made me feel welcome and comfortable.

Will you be doing another session?Yes, I would love to in the future.

Anything else you want to add?
I had no idea how much fun I would have doing a boudoir photo session with these ladies. The whole experience was wonderful.
I also loved that they made a slideshow with music for me to watch when I came back for my viewing session. I thought this was a nice addition to the viewing session. These ladies truly put a lot of thought, love and hard working hours in to their clients. 
They care about every lady on this Earth and want to make us all feel amazing and beautiful.
