low costSingle Sitting, a Few Photos: $100-$300average costMultiple Settings, Large Package, Professional Makeup: $300-$2,000+

Boudoir is a term that refers to the bedroom. Boudoir photography is generally shot of women, typically scantily clad or nude, in erotic or sensual positions. Many boudoir photographers offer sittings for both single individuals and couples.

Typical costs:

  • The base cost for a boudoir photography shoot is the sitting fee. Generally, the sitting fee is $50-$400. The sitting fee typically covers the amount of time spent with the photographer, one or more settings and a few initial prints. Higher sitting fee prices usually cover longer sessions with more settings. For example, Studio R[1] , charges $125-$349 for sessions, depending on the length of the session and the number of initial images included. Indianapolis Boudoir[2] charges $50-$200 for the initial sitting.
  • Many boudoir photographers offer packaged pricing that include makeup, hair styling and tanning in addition to the sitting, multiple settings and photos. Nolan Conley Photography[3] , in Texas, charges $199-$1,200 for various boudoir photography packages. Walzer Photography[4] , in Washington state, charges $259-$1,299 for packages, depending on the complexity of the package.
  • While some photos are often included in packages, there are generally options available to purchase further images or photobooks. Photo options typically start at $100-$200 but can go as high as $4,000 for all the images from a shoot. DeBoudoir[5] , which has locations nationwide, charges $2,000 for rights to all the digital images from a session and $279 for single digital images. Photography Studio Six[6] , in California, has a variety of pricing options for prints including $250-$400 for canvas prints.
What should be included:
  • Boudoir photography sessions include time with the photographer, one or more settings, and digital images. Some photographers also offer guarantees that all original files or negatives will be destroyed.
Additional costs:
  • Many boudoir photographers offer professional make-up and hairstyling services. Typically, make-up and hairstyling services cost $50-$150.
  • Many women choose lingerie to wear for the photo shoot -- some sessions allow multiple wardrobe changes. Lingerie, depending on the quality and the materials, can cost $20-$200.
  • Tanning sessions typically cost $10-$20 per session. Some boudoir photographers offer tanning discounts with area salons.
Discounts:
  • Doing one's own make-up and hair could reduce the total costs of boudoir photography, but it may not be the professional quality offered through the photography studio.
Shopping for boudoir photography:
  • The Boudoir Photographers Network provides a directory of members[7] .
