1. Ivy Rose Studio
While they also provide family and maternity-oriented images, the boudoir photography of Ivy Rose Studio is well worth getting to know better! Ivy Rose is a one-stop shop that takes care of everything, from hair and makeup to styling and outfits. And the way they use light is dramatic even for boudoir, with a combination of bright highlights and deep shadows creating a mood unique to this studio.
The team at Ivy Rose Studio also does pin-up photography, creating sexy portraits that use classy themes of the mid-1900s.
2. Boudoir By Kelliejo
Boudoir is always intimate, but we’ve yet to come across a Manchester boudoir photographer quite like Kelliejo! She expertly crafts boudoir lifestyle stories using select compositions and image arrangements, coupled with the poses her subjects are guided into. Her working distances are incredibly close as well, heightening the mood of each frame.
We also enjoy the more subdued lighting ambiance Kelliejo prefers, toning down colors and complex light so form and textures speak more clearly.
3. Carina Crolla
SWPP award-winning photographer Carina Crolla works with Manchester families, newborns, and maternity clients to create fine art-worthy images. Her style is exceptionally mature and has a unique character, using black, white, and earth-toned studio backdrops, ideal lighting, and flowing outfits for her maternity boudoir images.
Carina celebrates the beauty of motherhood, from pregnancy and beyond, and expertly balances sensuality with grace in her maternity images. Hers is the work of a true artist who knows how to capture moments in time, namely, you looking amazing.

4. Alexandra Vince
Alexandra Vince started the perfectly named For Your Eyes Only portrait studio to help women rediscover what it means to love themselves. Boudoir is an intimate, sometimes scary thing to do for the first time. Fortunately, her studio embraces women as they are and invites them to give the gift of boudoir not only to others but to themselves!
And the celebratory, editorial character of her work adds natural energy and excitement to a typically sultry and moody genre. Her use of flash and dramatic black-and-white styling also sets Alexandra’s work apart from the natural light ambiance commonly used. She is our top choice if you’re looking for someone with a drastically different take on boudoir!
5. Luminite Photography
Luminite Photography is a Manchester studio specializing in boudoir, portraiture, fitness, and fashion photography. This studio’s unique emphasis is often on the human form and its inherent beauty. How muscles and limbs gracefully curve, the softness of skin and the complex highlights it displays, and more. Coupled with solid themes like BDSM, leather, or fantasy, Luminite Photography is by far the best studio if you have a concept that doesn’t fit with what other studios prefer creating.
6. Liberated Ladies
Ian Cartwright of Liberated Ladies is an experienced Manchester boudoir photographer who also works with fashion, advertising, family, and corporate clients. He was the first photographer in the UK to gain the distinction of Master Qualified European Photographer (MQEP)! And looking at his work, it’s clear he’s earned that qualification.
Ian’s boudoir images have more of an exemplary art character, using conceptual themes beyond mere sensuality that carry stories and other elements that invite careful consideration. He’s also a fan of a soft-focus style, allowing highlights to glow in a way that bathes his subjects in light and suggests an invitingly gentle skin tone.
7. Emma Finch
Belle Privé is a full-service Manchester studio focused on vintage fashion, luxury boudoir, portraiture, and commercial photography. Emma’s work encapsulates the entirety of the boudoir, pinup, and vintage fashion worlds, from corsets and fantasy backgrounds to contemporary outfits and settings.
Regardless of the theme, she prefers using a rich, high-contrast style coupled with well-controlled highlights and deep shadows. Her work has a celebratory character, highlighted by the confidence and liveliness of her subjects as they bring their fantasies to life with Emma’s help!

8. Boudoir by Ben Smith
Manchester boudoir photographer Ben Smith summarizes the experience perfectly in his own words. His work is all about “enhancing women’s confidence in themselves and their body” and sees the boudoir genre as a “liberating experience to love yourself.” So often, people (and photographers) get caught up in the sensuality of boudoir without realizing that by being vulnerable in front of the camera, boudoir can also be a healing experience and a gift to oneself.
Ben’s working distances are often incredibly intimate, filling the frame with his subjects. This allows their form and emotions to carry all of the weight in the scene. And his equal fluency with color and monochrome will enable viewers to enjoy subtle skin tones and colored lighting or allow textures and form to remain dominant!
9. Andrew Wood Photography
Andrew and his team at Andrew Wood Photography create some of the most creative and playful images we’ve seen. In fact, they offer more than classic boudoir photography, providing you with options like burlesque, “50 Shades,” bridal, and “Glow” natural beauty imagery. All of their images look so unique, that you can’t help but feel that they cater every unique experience to each of their unique clients.
So if you’re looking for unique boudoir that still provides a confidence-boosting experience, check out Andrew Wood Photography.
Bonus: Isaac Cox Photography
Isaac Cox is a Manchester portrait photographer who mainly focuses on boudoir photography. But this isn’t your classic boudoir photography we’re talking about. In fact, Isaac tends to call his work “sensual art,” sometimes even taking his models out of the boudoir to shoot en plein air: beside a pool, in the forest, on a city rooftop, you name it.
He creates some of the most intriguing semi-nude photography today. So if you’re looking to create a boudoir shoot with a bt of an edge, Isaac may just be your guy.
