Let’s say you’re going to do it! Let’s say you’re finally going to book that boudoir session that you’ve always wanted. Now the question at hand is, who are you going to book with? As you are researching the best boudoir photographer for you, there are a ton of considerations. (Make sure to read my previous post How to Choose a Boudoir Photographer for helpful tips!) One of the yummy details you’ll get to decide is how your images will look. I shoot portraits in black and white, and here’s why I think it’s the best style to choose.
Black and white portraits give classic vibes only. You will treasure your boudoir images for life, and don’t want them to be subject to passing color fads. The raspberry blush color of today might not stand the test of time. Blacks, grays, and whites will always be stunning.
Boudoir is an act of self-love, and you will be able to see yourself in an entirely new way. In black and white photography, lighting is the star of the show, and I know just how to harness it. You won’t have the opportunity to nitpick at blemishes, redness, or coloring imperfections on your skin, which means our photography edits keep you looking like you.
Boudoir portraits capture your inner goddess, and I want to make sure you essential energy is immortalized forever. There is nothing that captures a mood like black and white photography. The stripped-back look without the distraction of color conveys primal emotion. Emotion every woman deserves.
When images are in black and white, lingerie (or any outfit) color becomes incidental. You will probably want to invest in new pieces for the session, and finding the perfect item in the perfect shade is tough and can be pricey. Black and white images emphasize contrast, so you have the freedom to ignore color, which might mean you can grab items that are on sale!
