We started this blog to compliment the Casual Elegance Photography Blog.  Lately we have concentrated on the other blog but let me assure you that we are very linked.  Please check our other blog to see the latest updates!


B-PICS – BRIDAL BOUDOIR — A growing trend!

In the past few weeks we have booked at least 4 Bridal Boudoir shoots. This trend seems to be growing and we’re happy to see it. The feedback we have received from the brides who have shot with us is “WOW – he was floored!!!” “His jaw dropped and he really loved them, especially the one we shot last, you know the one I’m talking about” “He absolutely LOVED THEM”. In a typical B-Pic shoot we try a bunch of poses – teasing ones, pure sexy ones, fun ones, and classic ones. Sometimes the bride to be wants to do a striptease as we capture the stages of it. Other times just the placement of the lingerie or props such as sheets can tease and create a feeling of wanting to see more. It’s all a matter of what the bride to be wants to say in the shots. We have had brides bring in their veil and shoot with it and nothing else or with some white lingerie. Again, it’s all a matter of personal preference. We’re loving this new trend. Call us or email us today to schedule your Bridal Boudoir Shoot!

Glad we moved the studio when we did!

Atlanta has experienced a week of torrential rains unlike anything we’ve seen in the 16 years we’ve been here. Scenes on the news look like we’ve been through a tropical storm or hurricane, but the reality is that it was just 8 days of pretty steady, heavy, rain. Apparantly two weather systems met each other and then just got stuck. Lucky us!

And I do mean lucky! For the first time ever we had water in our basement – which USED to be my studio! Had this happened a few weeks ago, all my lights, cameras, computers, props – literally my entire studio would have been in the water

Meanwhile here I sit at home, making appointments for photoshoots that span the next month, knowing my studio is high and dry and ready to shoot at a moment’s notice. If I hadn’t made the decision to move I don’t know when I’d be back in business!

Check out my website and give me a call to set up your appointment today!

New Studio Boudoir Shoots are getting GREAT feedback!!!

After months of searching for “just the right location” for Casual Elegance Photography’s new studio, and all our hard work to make sure it gave our clients a private and comfortable environment for their photo sessions, we still held our breath when we opened the doors and started shooting there.

So we have been delighted with the feedback we are getting from our clients – in all areas. Boudoir, Glamour, Artistic nudes, B-Pics, Maternity, Headshots, Commercial – new clients and repeat clients, as well as our makeup artists, all have had wonderful things to say about our new “digs”.

If you’d like to schedule a shoot – visit our website and send us an email or give us a call.

Boudoir and Glamour Nude

It’s been an interesting few weeks here at Atlanta Boudoir Photographer – Casual Elegance Photography®.  Almost every one of our Boudoir sessions have evolved into glamour nude sessions.  I realize that there’s some that don’t feel there is a significant difference, while others feel that Boudoir is normally nothing to do with nude.  But what I am finding is that clients actually want both.  I believe that it’s because they see how great they look in the lingerie or sexy clothing and start to feel confident enough to do nude images.  At Casual Elegance Photography® we work with the client to get the images they want while all the while making them feel comfortable and beautiful – and it shows in the images we capture.  

Some of our shoots have been booked as Boudoir and have turned into something quite different.  When the client arrives we go over a shoot plan for the images they want to get.  Well, lately after seeing the artistic nudes in our books they decide that they want to do a “few” art nudes.  Typically that turns into the focus of the session because they love the way they look when they see themselves on our monitors as we are shooting.  Then many ask if they can shoot some Glamour Nudes and finish up with a few Boudoir/Lingerie shots.   It’s wonderful to see the confidence and empowerment the sessions give them.   We are always flexible in our shoot plans so we are usually able to get all the different images and venues of images done in the session.

Need Boudoir or Nude Photos as a gift? Plan ahead!

A phone call I received yesterday reminded me to write a little blurb about the timing of doing a photoshoot when you have a deadline in mind for needing your prints!  If you’re doing a boudoir, glamour, or artistic nude photoshoot as a gift for a certain occasion, be sure to schedule it with enough time to have your prints back.  We work with a small professional lab that works only with professional photographers.  They produce outstanding quality prints, and require about 8 to 10 business days to turn around a job, depending on job size. Planning ahead is always the best option, BUT if you have a last minute “lightbulb moment” about giving a gift of beautiful and romantic photographs to your special someone – have no fear – we can still make it happen!

In yesterday’s case, the request was for a boudoir, art nude session, with prints for a birthday gift – and the birthday is this Saturday!  Since there is no way to have the prints back by then, we’re doing the shoot today, and then I will edit the shots and have them on a CD to be given as a “teaser”, with the prints to follow in a few days. 

Over the years we have found that our clients are thrilled to discover that they have that option when they’ve waited a bit too long to schedule, or have come up with the idea at the last moment.   So if you are thinking of doing boudoir or nude photographs remember to call for an appointment with plenty of time to spare.
