YOU'VE GOT QUESTIONS
We've got answers
DO YOU HAVE SOMEONE TO DO MY HAIR AND MAKEUP?
We do not offer hair & makeup services in our locations.
Do you have to have hair & makeup done? Heck no! You are perfect, exactly as you are. Want a little extra pampering ahead of your shoot? Or a potential confidence boost? Personally, all of us at Three Boudoir love being treated and glammed by professional artist. They play up your features and can help you see yourself in a differently. It might just be the boost you want heading into your shoot.

HOW DO I ACCESS YOUR BOOKING CALENDAR?
When you purchase your package directly from us, we will email you immediate access to our booking calendar. We always open our calendar for booking one month in advance and always on the 5th of the month. For example on December 5th we open all January dates for booking. We open dates on a rolling basis throughout the calendar year.
HOW DO YOU ENSURE PRIVACY? I do/Do not WANT MY IMAGES SHARED
Your photos are uploaded to an online gallery that is password protected. We use a professional print shop for any images, albums, etc. you order.
We never use photos for marketing or any other reason without your explicit written permission.
Following your shoot you say “yes” or “no” to us sharing your images. Don't want us to share 'em, no problem! Want us to share 'em? You will likely see your friendly face looking back at you in our online gallery.
Do you shoot with natural light or studio lights?
Natural light, baby! Mother nature knows what she is doing and our photographers leverage that natural light to make you shine. We find it to be the most flattering light for this style of photography.
What days do you shoot?
Curious to know when we shoot? In all of our locations we shoot every day of the week, including weekends, from either 8:30am or 9:30am to either 3:30 or 4:30pm. However, we do not shoot every single day of the month. We reserve a few days each month for all things administrative and product design.
Do you have any deals?
You betcha! You can grab a look at our current special right here. Also, we offer savings on products if you place your order immediately following your shoot. We also have product sales throughout the year to help you have more of your images in your hands.
DO YOU HAVE CLOTHING, JEWELRY, ETC FOR ME TO WEAR?
We do not provide clothing, jewelry, props, etc. Please bring these items along with you.
Need ideas? When you book you will have access to our Down and Dirty Guide with all the tips ands tricks you need from a Playboy model to help you prepare for your shoot. We even give you access to our favorite places to shop in each city we shoot in. We have loads of experience and expertise in this area and have got you covered!
To get a jump start, consider the interest of the person that these will be a gift for. Does your special fan have a favorite sports team, an interesting hobby, or serve in a branch of our military? If so, you might want to bring your own sports jersey, military themed outfit, or something else that would be personal to them. We've photographed everything from tool belts to deep-sea dive gear, and made it sexy! If this is a gift for your spouse or groom, it is a particularly wonderful to bring your veil, wedding shoes, or something else specific to your wedding that will help tie these sexy photos to that very special day. Need ideas? Our gallery and Instagram is loaded with 'em
I HAVE NEVER DONE ANYTHING LIKE THIS BEFORE AND HAVE NO MODELING EXPERIENCE. CAN YOU HELP ME KNOW WHAT TO DO IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA?
Rest easy. We do not know very many people who have experience letting strangers take photos of them in their unmentionables! It is perfectly normal to be nervous and worried that you will not know exactly what to do in front of the camera. This is where Three Boudoir shines.
All of our staff has been trained by Joanna, a former Playboy model, on how to direct you through your shoot. We will talk you through every move, literally everything from the expression on your face to the way your feet are angled. Our photographers have an amazing eye and understand the technical things like making sure you have incredible lighting, the surroundings are flattering, and the picture is snapped at the exact moment to capture you at your best.
DO YOU WORK WITH MEN OR COUPLES?
We are an all female company that works with womxn. We only do individual shoots, no couples.
CAN I BRING A FRIEND TO MY SHOOT?
All shoots are solo shoots & experiences. Your friends are welcome to walk you to the door, meet your shoot team (your photographer and shoot stylist), give you a high five, and tell you how incredible you are for conquering boudoir. However, we ask that they not attend your session. Your shoot is an hour with your photography team focused entirely on you. We want to focus on lifting you up, supporting & celebrating you, and ensuring you have images you adore in the end. Having a friend present can be a distraction for both you and your shoot team. It is possible for them to join virtually, over zoom or facetime if you'd like.
For those with a disability and need additional support, please let us know.
Can my friend and I book back to back shoots?
Absolutely! Once each of you purchases your package, you will have access to our booking calendar. From there you can identify a date/time that works for each of you and schedule back to back shoots!
SPEAKING OF FRIENDS, I WOULD LIKE TO DO THIS WITH A GROUP OF GIRLFRIENDS. DO YOU OFFER ANY SPECIAL PRICING OR PACKAGES FOR GROUPS?
Typically we offer group packages, where you and your besties or your bridesmaids or your sister, etc can come in and take over our studio together. However, to observe our current safety protocols we are currently limiting shoots to just one person. Once regulations relax, we will offer group shoots again.
DO YOU HAVE A STUDIO? WILL YOU COME TO MY HOUSE? IS A HOTEL ROOM AN OPTION?
We currently have 17+ locations where you can book your shoot:
Annapolis | Atlanta | Austin | Boston | Charlotte | Chicago | Dallas | Denver | DC | Houston | Minneapolis | Nashville | NYC | Philadelphia | Phoenix | San Diego | Savannah
In some of these locations our studio spaces rotate. We often book swanky hotels or sexy studio spaces. You can see where we are currently shooting by visiting our shoot location page. In addition you can see pictures of our studio spaces right here.
We prefer to shoot in our studios but if you have a special request please let us know. We are able to travel and like the change of scenery from time to time.
I AM NERVOUS! DO YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE OR TIPS TO HELP COMBAT THESE JITTERS?
First of all, recognize the fact that even considering a Three Boudoir session takes some courage! Give yourself a big pat on the back for making it to the frequently asked question page. You are braver than you think! Believe it or not, there are not many people who walk into a shoot relaxed and ready. Everyone has nerves and we expect the first few minutes of the shoot to be a little stiff. In fact, we plan for it.
Ahead of your shoot we are going to arm you with everything from empowering mantra's to repeat in the weeks before your shoot, to tips and tricks to rock it out during your shoot and so much more. We are always available via phone as well. We are here for you and ready to support & cheer you on.
I NEED THESE FOR A SPECIFIC DATE, HOW FAR OUT SHOULD I BOOK?
Your online gallery is available the day of your shoot. All of our packages include 2 edited digital images to download the day of your shoot.
Your online gallery will also have 50+ images from your shoot. Once you have your online gallery it is up to you select the images for any final products that you purchase, be it a USB of edited images, a beautifully designed album, or gorgeous prints to hang on your wall.
Once you have selected your favorite images it is a 2-9 week process for product delivery. Why such a big time frame? Digital images are delivered as soon as they are edited while albums take additional time to edit, design, be proofed by you, be printed, and delivered to you.
Have a wedding, anniversary or other celebration where you need your images faster? We offer rush processing, this moves you to the top of the editing and design queue, cutting wait time in half. Let us know your deadline and we will work with you to get your images by then.
DO YOU RETOUCH THE PHOTOS? HOW MUCH EDITING DO YOU DO?
We can do as much or as little editing as you would like. Most of us have areas that we want to diminish and areas that we want to play up. We know how to pose just so & touch up in post processing so that you look like the BEST you. We follow your lead on editing, and will do as much or as little as you would like.
DO YOU DO FULL NUDITY?
If you want fully nude shots, implied nudity is our go to. You wear as much or as little as you would like. It is not required that you come into your shoot knowing exactly where your comfort levels are or how much you want to expose. We are flexible and will work with you to capture a variety of images during your shoot in each outfit you bring. We will never pressure you or ask you to do anything that makes you uncomfortable.
