Well...not to be mean, but TOO BAD. Here's why:
Specialized Skill and Expertise: Boudoir photography requires a unique set of skills and expertise. We have 10+ years boudoir experience and we have specialized in this genre, investing $$$$$ into education uniquely specific to boudoir photography.
Professional Equipment: We invest in high-quality camera equipment, lighting setups, and props to ensure the best possible results. This equipment is quite expensive to purchase and maintain.
Time-Intensive Process: Boudoir photography involves more than just the time spent during the actual session. We spend lots of additional hours on pre-shoot consultations, setting up the studio, editing and retouching the images, plus preparing the final product.
Privacy and Discretion: Boudoir photography involves capturing intimate and personal moments. To maintain a high level of professionalism, we invest time into building trust with our clients, ensuring privacy, and offering a comfortable & safe environment.
Customization and Personalization: Boudoir sessions are often highly personalized experiences. We spend a good deal of time getting to know our clients, understanding client preferences, and tailoring the session to go along with the client's individual style and desires. This level of customization contributes to the overall cost.
Business Overhead: Like any business, we have overhead costs, and these costs must be factored into the pricing to ensure sustainability so that we can keep eyeCandy Boudoir open for business.
Quality of the Final Product: We invest time in post-production work to edit and retouch images, ensuring that the final product meets high-quality standards. This attention to detail adds to the overall cost.
It's important to note that pricing can vary widely based on factors such as the photographer's experience, reputation, geographic location, and the specific services and products offered in a package. Clients often find value in the professional expertise and personalized experience provided by skilled boudoir photographers, justifying the higher cost for this specialized service. In other words, it's worth the investment!
