“My husband LOVES the photos (& so do I).”
“This was my first time doing anything like this and everyone made me feel so comfortable. They’re all down-to-earth, compassionate women who keep it real. I LOVE that they shoot women of all body sizes and those who have disabilities. The experience was amazing, my husband LOVES the photos (and so do I). ”
“They made me feel/look like a freaking goddess.“
“HOT DAMM! I cannot recommend Revealed Studios enough. The moment I stepped through the door they made me feel/look like a freaking goddess. They gave very subtle but helpful direction for my posing so I didn’t look a drunk giraffe. I didn’t feel awkward for even half a second because they were so supportive and professional.”
“This was just as much a gift for myself”
“Every woman — bride-to-be or not — should have this experience. I originally booked a photo session as a wedding gift for my husband, but during the shoot realized this was just as much a gift for myself. I usually hate having my picture taken, but Maggie and Kelly truly know how to make each woman look amazing.”
“They found the best parts of me and helped me shine.”
“”As someone who usually hates pictures of myself, I can’t believe how good they turned out. I’ve struggled with body image my entire life, so this was way out of my norm. I did this as a gift for my husband for our one year anniversary. I think I gained more from this experience. It’s empowering and you’ll feel really proud of yourself after it’s finished.”
“I was absolutely floored by the results.”
“I was SO nervous at first, but I’m happy to say that within minutes of us starting I felt comfortable. They made me feel so beautiful, sexy and amazing. I would highly recommend that every woman do this for their significant other…but most importantly, to do it for themselves (even if they have no significant other)!!”
“All my fears and inhibitions melted away within seconds”
“I’ve always been a little self-conscious of my body, and notice my flaws far quicker than most. The thought of being in my underwear in front of a stranger was bizarre and a little intimidating. All my fears and inhibitions melted away within seconds, and by the end of the day, I have never felt more beautiful.”
A boudoir photography studio worthy of you…
When visitors first step inside our boudoir photography studio we often hear “wow, this is such a great space.” The 2,000 sq ft artist loft was designed with industrial modern design features and feminine touches to create a hip, chic vibe.
With an abundance of natural light and so much positive energy infused into the space, you’ll feel immediately at home.
We’d love to have you visit our boudoir photography studio in Chicago or you can take a virtual tour of our photography studio here.
Our first floor has clean white floors and brick walls, sweeping 20-foot ceilings, and professional lighting and photography equipment. It’s also been used as the set of many fashion and editorial photoshoots.
Our second-floor loft has mahogany wood floors, feminine touches, and breathtaking natural light. It’s a dreamy setting for the more traditional boudoir (French for “the bedroom”) scenes.

Commonly Asked Boudoir Photography Questions
Listed below are the top six questions we get asked when you’re thinking about venturing into a boudoir photo experience. To learn more about the boudoir photo experience, you can also visit our about section which includes even more details.
What is boudoir photography?
Boudoir photography is a photographic style featuring intimate, romantic, and sometimes erotic images of its subjects, primarily intended for the private enjoyment of the subject and his or her romantic partners. It is distinct from glamour and art nude photography in that it is usually more suggestive rather than explicit in its approach to nudity and sexuality, features subjects who do not regularly model, and produces images which are not intended to be seen by a wide audience, but rather to remain under the control of the subject.
What do you wear to a boudoir session?
We love options. Bring 4-5 outfits that make you feel beautiful, and we’ll help you narrow them down to three. We see everything from lingerie sets, stockings, and garters, to white dress shirts, sportswear and heels. Boudoir must haves: black and/or nude pumps. If you’re well endowed up top, a bra that provides lift and support for those laying down pictures. And for all, something classic and timeless. You want to look back on these pictures for a lifetime. We recommend bringing at least one classic, sexy piece.
How do I prepare for a boudoir photo shoot?
Doing a boudoir photoshoot can be a bit scary. The last thing you want to be thinking about the morning of your boudoir session is whether you prepared correctly. We’ve created a how to guide to ensure you have everything covered before your boudoir experience, though the short: choose your outfits, bring your sexy pumps and accessorize, consider props, pamper yourself before the session so you feel refreshed, hydrate, rest, and set your intention to fully enjoy ‘you’ during this day.
What is bridal boudoir?
For many, a wedding is one of the most important milestones in their life. A bridal boudoir photo session is a chance to capture beautiful, intimate pictures of yourself as a gift not just for your significant other, but for you! We say it over and over again because we truly believe it–boudoir is not just about taking sexy pictures. Boudoir is about the experience. It’s embracing who you are, right where you’re at, and leading up to your wedding is prime time for doing just that. It’s a beautiful opportunity to document any investment you’ve made in yourself leading up to your wedding day. The gorgeous photos you’ll feel proud of for years to come is an added bonus.
How much does boudoir photography cost?
The shoot itself costs $299, but with a product, on average, our client spends between $1,000-$2,500 for their experience. This includes professional hair and makeup, complimentary champagne, a three hour photo shoot with three looks, an in studio image reveal, and product or digital purchase of choice.
Your privacy is so important to us. We will never use your images in our marketing, online or in print, without first having your permission. In most cases, client’s prefer to keep their images private or allow only pictures where their identity is unrecognizable to be used, which we’re happy to honor! If you do provide permission to use your pictures, we will never disclose your name alongside your image.
