What my client’s are saying…
“I was really nervous about everything at first but Critsey’s professionalism and approachability put me at ease almost from the first shot. It’s funny – this started out being a present for my fiancé, but has really become a gift for myself.” ~KELLY
“Critsey was a dream to work with during my boudoir session! She was professional, organized, knowledgeable, and super communicative. I am differently-abled and was scared I would not be able to pose and look sexy like I wanted to. She proved me soooooo wrong!!! During the session I felt comfortable, confident, and goddess-like. Then seeing my images…I burst into happy tears! I couldn’t have asked for more gorgeous images. My husband is also incredibly pleased with the results of the photo shoot!! If you’re even considering doing a boudoir shoot, do it. Critsey will make you fall in love with yourself and your body again!” ~HALEY
“Working with Critsey on this experience was incredible. From the beginning, she was informative, friendly, organized and professional. Her collection of pointers and tips was so helpful prior to the shoot. I was nervous before showing up, but Critsey is a calming, easy to talk to photographer. Her experience shone through as she helped sort outfits and modeled exactly what to do. I could not have been more impressed with the end result. I have never felt more catered to and beautiful after this empowering shoot.” ~CAROLINE
“Age is just a number! I wanted to give my husband a special Christmas present, so I decided to go outside my comfort zone with a boudoir photo shoot. I researched the photographers and decided to go with the highly recommended Couture Boudoir.
From the very first time we spoke, Critsey made me feel comfortable. I’m over 50, so as much as I try and keep in shape I was definitely a bit apprehensive. She gave me great pre-shoot advice, so I felt prepared the day of the photo shoot.
I opted for the professional make up application with the photo shoot, and I’m so glad I did. The make up artist was wonderful!
Critsey helped put together some of my outfits which I was grateful for. I was certainly nervous stepping out with my first outfit on, but Critsey instantly made me feel confident and beautiful.
I highly recommend Couture Boudoir to any woman of any age who wants to feel confident and sexy. It also makes a fantastic gift, at least I know that my husband felt (and still feels) that way!” ~LEIGH
“Such an amazing experience! Critsey and her team are nothing short of spectacular. I am an athletic built person and the thought of doing a shoot was nerve racking to say the least. Working with Critsey made all the difference. She is so relatable, kind, and professional. She made me immediately feel at ease. The whole process is a fun experience, Critsey makes it easy! All you really have to do is show up and be ready to have a fun experience. The finished product I received is phenomenal, I can’t wait to gift it. If you’re on the fence about doing a shoot take the plunge it’s amazing and you will not be disappointed.” ~MORGAN
“I was nervous there would be so much pressure to look like a model or pretend to be someone I’m not — I had visions of what you see on TV at model photo shoots how there is a photographer telling the model to be alluring and demanding more from her than she is able to give — model holding her breath and sucking in her stomach and totally uncomfortable the whole time, with lots of fake silly poses — I really thought that is what was going to happen but hoping there was still one or two pictures out of the bunch that I would like in the end. OMG. Not at all how it goes!!
I told Critsey right away I was too shy to look right at the camera and that I didn’t want to try to pretend to be younger or hotter than I was, I just wanted lots of black and white pics of my body without focusing on my face. Not only was she incredibly gracious and did exactly that, but she took hundreds of pictures and I loved every single one, not just one or two. Very hard to narrow them down for a photo album!!!
She’s so talented and makes you feel so comfortable — very natural poses that literally just make you feel like you are lounging around and your best friend who sees you in the very best light possible is snapping a pic for you. No pressure, no fake smiles, no sucking it in, no awkward moments — just felt very very easy and uplifting and in the end, hundreds of gorgeous pictures to choose from that make you feel very beautiful.
And oh my gosh the photos exceeded my expectations in every way. Every picture somehow looks exactly like me but also like the best version of me that I could have ever hoped for. I wasn’t sure what lingerie to wear and yet Critsey captured the best angles in each outfit and customized it to my comfort level as well. I was so incredibly delighted also that she gave me the option of black and white version for every single picture she took — I was not expecting that and absolutely so grateful she did.
I never once felt like I might be too old or to shy to do this — Critsey made me feel like she was my biggest cheerleader and I know, because of her kind and warm energy, that she does this with every single person she shoots. Trust in her and her talents — she makes you feel seen and adored.
I can’t sing enough praise — so professional yet so comfortable — again like having the friend you trust most in this world grab some very very cute pictures of you. The entire time you know Critsey has your back and is only going to capture and share the very best parts of you, never ever did I feel self conscious of the worst parts of me. Never. It’s like she doesn’t even see flaws, she scans you for the best angles and parts and captures those for you to have forever.” ~RACH
