THE SHOOT

We are Sacramento’s premier all female boudoir and glamour photography studio and work hard to make your portrait experience the most empowering it can be!  When you arrive at our studio – you’ll be greeted with a glass of bubbly,  a studio tour and style consultation. We’ll select the best backdrops to compliment your clothing and then you’ll head to the dressing room to begin the pampering with one of our amazing stylists!  When your look is complete – it’s go time!

The Experience

 

THE IMAGES and PRODUCT DELIVERY

After your shoot, you’ll be invited back to the studio within 1 hour for a same day gallery viewing! Don’t worry… we’ll have recommendations of wonderful places to grab a bite or drink while you wait. When you return you’ll see a presentation of your image proofs and  select the images for your album and/or digital collection.  From shoot to order delivery takes 4-6 weeks so please plan your shoot date keeping that in mind. We typically book out 2-3 weeks from the time you contact the studio for a session.

No refunds are allowed so purchase wisely. Sessions can be rescheduled if given 72 hours notice.  Last minute cancellations or no shows forfeit the session fee.

Step 3

Beauty Services

 

You’ll want to decide before we reserve your date if you’d like hair and makeup services. I cannot stress enough how important it is to have a professional stylist complete your look for your shoot. Great makeup is vital to how well your skin photographs and the overall look of your final images. Not to mention – who doesn’t love a good pampering!  You’ll most likely only do this once so do it right – right?!

If you have a favorite stylist of your own you can arrive at the studio with your hair and makeup complete and ready to shoot. Or, you can choose to work with one of our stylists and be pampered on set. Our beauty team offers 2 services to choose from ranging from $150-$200. During the booking process you can let us know what you decide.  Check out these tips to get your skin camera ready.

Words of Love

Miss Jessica

I felt like a celebrity and felt so good about my body even though I could stand to get in better shape. My self-esteem went through the roof and I coasted along on that feeling for weeks afterward! My husband thinks I'm a natural beauty but was amazed at how sexy I looked in the photos. Sacramento Boudoir photo Carmen Salazar 007

Miss Courtney

My advice to other brides is 'don't be nervous!'.  I am a pretty modest person by nature, so this was an uncharacteristic thing for me to do. But, I knew this would be a gift he would cherish forever as well. Carmen made me feel really comfortable through the whole photo-shoot! Additionally, the hair and make-up artist made me feel incredibly gorgeous and sexy, which made it easier to just have fun and not feel self-conscious. I highly recommend the boudoir experience, you'll have a good time and be proud of the finished product! Sacramento Boudoir photo Carmen Salazar 001

Miss Crystal

thank you so much for such a wonderful, special day!  You had such a way of making us all feel so comfortable. We had sooooo much fun... we are still talking about it! You are truly wonderful, you have such a great, loving energy about you. Sacramento Boudoir photo Carmen Salazar 002

Miss Desirae

I am a future bride to be and I wanted to do something unique and fun with all my girls. A boudoir party with Carmen was just the thing!  We were 6 women of all shapes and sizes and I can truly say Carmen captured the true beauty in every single woman. She is a visual artist! It was one of the best days of my life and not to mention my fiancée is going to be spoiled with some breathtaking photos. I am excited to have these pictures and memories to be able to look back on and say  'yep, that's me!'. Sacramento Boudoir photo Carmen Salazar 003

Miss Jessica

It was an amazing experience! You are so talented and made our girls weekend so much fun! Sacramento Boudoir photo Carmen Salazar 006

Miss Nicole

I was supposed to do a session as a wedding gift but I ran out of time and ended up doing it for my husband's birthday.  I'm really shy  and was nervous and unsure I would be good at this type of shoot.  The whole session was much more fun than I expected.  If you're thinking about it then do it! I had a really good experience and left with new-found confidence! Sacramento Boudoir photo Carmen Salazar 005

Miss Prescilla

I came in for a session as a gift to my husband for Valentine's day. I was so nervous I was going to be uncomfortable and not look sexy in my photos for him.  The best advice I can give to women considering a shoot is to trust Carmen and have fun!!! Sacramento Boudoir photo Carmen Salazar 004

Miss Gwen

I was initially nervous about being naked, vulnerable and therefore shy. But Carmen made me feel so comfortable that my nerves were automatically calmed. Carmen seeks to understand you! This was a Christmas gift for my sweetheart and also a celebration of myself as a woman. Celebrate yourself!!!  You are a being of vitality, beauty and sexuality - Express it. Be yourself!gwen-31
