1. Alloria Winter Photography
It is impossible to have been alive in the ’90s and aughts and missed the spectacle of Victoria’s Secret’s televised runway spectaculars — complete with angel wings. If you saw them and thought, “I wish that could be me,” good news, Alloria Winter is here to make your dreams come true.
Even better news, if you want dazzling maternity photos or a couples boudoir experience, she has you covered. She’s a conceptual artist, working with her clients to create something extraordinary. Suppose you’ve dreamed of being a sexy mermaid or a centerfold. In that case, Alloria’s personal blend of whimsy and sophistication is a once-in-a-lifetime treat, and we can’t recommend her highly enough.
We think Alloria’s vision, paired with this pink and luxurious life-sized dollhouse, would make for unforgettable results. It’s an amazingly curated 1,700-square-foot home in Mid-Wilshire with glamorous retro decor throughout.
2. Jennifer Montoya
Jennifer sets out to create something different for her clients, splitting her time between the equally vibrant Portland and Southern California. She works with her all-female staff to create a comfortable environment for those about to bear it all.
She thinks as much about the experience of an LA boudoir photography shoot as she does the photos. All that planning results in shots that are equal parts stylish and sexy. Personalized to each client — sometimes subtle, sometimes overtly sex kitten — Jennifer’s work emphasizes the inherent beauty of each person in front of her lens.
3. Boudoir Los Angeles
Marisa Leigh at Boudoir Los Angeles has a way of bringing out the bombshell sides of even the most camera-shy subjects. For her, an outstanding client experience is the most crucial aspect, and works with her more timid clients with ease that shows off her talent.
Her specialty is creating a safe container for women to freely express the sensual sides of themselves within. And she just so happens to take some gorgeous photos along the way! Equally comfortable creating outdoors or in-studio, her artistry is sure to impress you.
Are you booking your own session? We think Marisa’s style would absolutely stun in this 1960s retro loft in downtown LA. Between its avocado sofa, red and white egg chair, and multiple patterned wallpapers, you will have plenty to play with here.
4. Karen French Photography
With a name made for a Los Angeles boudoir photographer (by her own admission), Karen French’s work is consistently among the best of the best. With almost two decades of experience, Karen works with all body types with ease, using lighting and posing to highlight the beauty that each person possesses.
Speaking of beauty, her photography studio offers hair and makeup sessions as well, so you can have a complete pampering experience with your shoot. All of her shoots are entirely polished, marking her an excellent choice for when you want to truly indulge your sultry side.
5. Caroline Malouf Photography
