So, you've been thinking about a boudoir session for a while now. What's holding you back? Not only is a boudoir sessions a great time, it's an experience that will reward you with feelings of joy for years as you enjoy your photos.
Hi. I'm Michael. I'm a boudoir photographer from NJ that works with brides from Bergen County to Hoboken down to Monmouth County looking to create amazing gifts for their special day.

The little secret of boudoir, of course, is that what typically starts as a gift for a husband, ends up being the ultimate gift for you!
I really, really, would love to do a boudoir session, but it's all so expensive. Why?
This is a really good question, and I'll do the best I can with the answer. Boudoir is a great experience for women, and it's really difficult to e
