There are a ton of talented Toronto boudoir photographers out there, but the following artists are the cream of the crop. With these artists, you’ll find out what sexy means for you — from flat-out glamorous, model-inspired editorial styles to simple vibes involving a T-shirt and undies in your home on a weekend morning.
And as the largest online marketplace for hourly venue rentals, Peerspace knows a thing or two about creating gorgeous art in one-of-a-kind settings. If you’re thinking of setting up your own boudoir shoot (and really, you should!) book a stunning Peerspace venue and nab your favorite photographer below to do the honors.
Many of our favorite boudoir photographers in Toronto focus as much on empowering their subjects as they are on the art of photography itself. On the other hand, others blend fashion styling into their shoots for a truly luxe experience. Whoever you choose, you can’t go wrong with any of these talented Toronto boudoir photographers!
1. Trevor Sherwin of Provocateur Images
Provocateur Images is an aptly named studio. After all, lead photographer Trevor Sherwin’s images are provocative in all the best ways. Titillating, playful, thoughtful, and artistic. Over a decade of experience in portraiture prepared Trevor for his career in boudoir photography, and his skill at making his subjects comfortable is evident in the photos.
Provocateur Images helps women, men, and couples discover or rediscover themselves in a way that just so happens to result in gorgeous photos. He and his team of stylists are sure to wow you! There’s a reason they’re billed as Toronto’s #1 luxury boudoir studio, after all.
As Trevor himself says about his charmed career: “Where else do you get to change how people see themselves? Nowhere! I’m also really lucky to work with some really awesome people too that help make Provocateur Images the most amazing boudoir experience!“
2. Alishba Zarmeen of Dream Boudoir Photography
Bold, artistic, with just enough of a rebellious streak, Alishba Zarmeen is the leader of this all-female team of Toronto boudoir photographers. They are on a mission to bring a touch of glam alongside your empowerment during each shoot. Her client closet includes such fantastical items as giant angel wings, as well as all manner of floaty chiffon gowns and garter belts. Fully believing that boudoir is for every body, Alishba works with clients of all shapes and sizes.
On Dream Boudoir’s website, you can book a complementary consultation and learn all about what a boudoir experience with them entails. Her posing expertise and lighting will make you look like a model, even if you insist you aren’t one. In fact, her portfolio of joyous, sensuous women speaks for itself!
Just check out what one of their many thrilled clients has to say about her experience with Dream Boudoir Photography: “My experience was absolutely amazing, Alishba was able to take my vague ideas and turn them into a complete work of art! Her talent, kindness and compassion were so present in my session with her. My hair and makeup was so beautiful and simplistic. I was still able to ‘look like me’ while capturing my inner and outer beauty.“
3. Samantha Kay Studios by Crave Boudoir
Samantha Kay believes in the transformative power of boudoir photography. She even has a before and after section on her website, so you can imagine your own transformation. You’ll also see that the women she works with are not professional models — they just look like it in their photos! Her hair and makeup team will glam you up, and she’ll direct your poses to accentuate your body in all the right ways.
Samantha’s artistry is evident — timeless black-and-white images enshrine your beauty in an iconic way. However, we also think her work is classy and understated — naturally sexy without being too much. She’s perfect for those who want to try boudoir but don’t want to be over the top.
As Samantha herself shares about your journey at her studio: “Crave Boudoir specializes in minimalistic, black and white portraits for the modern woman. We strive to celebrate YOU as the focus, without any frills or distractions.” Sounds ideal to us!
We think Samantha and the team’s work would come alive in this modern daylight creative studio in Cabbagetown South. Its neutral decor and sunny ambiance are a perfect match for her classy style.

In Tania’s own words: “It’s not about how you look, but rather how you feel about the way you look. Confidence is truly an amazing thing. [It] is what we all need. Confidence and self-acceptance and personality is what I bring out in the women I photograph. I need you to know that you are perfect right now. It is my job to find the model within you, that I know is there.”
