Shower Visuals

Recently had a client ask about something combining boudoir and water. My immediate thoughts were ‘please not another one of those tub shoots with ______ in the water with them’. To my surprise that was not her idea, she gave me creative freedom to craft the concept that your about to see. Due low temps, this could not have been done outdoors so I decided to use the spare shower in our studio dressing room for it.
I started out using a speed-light, but just ended up using the natural lighting that came from the back of the shower and some nifty camera adjusts along the way. Needless to say the client was pleased with the outcome..

Couple’s boudoir #2 w/ L&D

So my wife and I were at the airport in Atlanta about to travel on holiday to our yearly|personal marital retreat to the island of Aruba when a email came through. I took a cpl days to answer it as we were enjoying ourselves. Upon reading it, L had expressed a desire to do non traditional couples shoot. Their last couples shoot was a cookie cutter shoot that looked scripted so this one she wanted it to be different. During the consultation, she provided some frame work, but gave me creative control to go off script.
Her and D arrived at 630am the morning of shoot bearing delicious cookies and a open mind. We got the initial sunrise shots in about 40 degree weather and as u can see D was a trooper with her shirt off.. The rest is history, new friends were made and new projects with them are on the horizon. Enjoy!

Recent visuals w/ MW

MW and I recently met via social media. She had did two boudoir type shoots previously, however this was her first full multi outfit studio experience. We had communicated for several weeks prior to the shoot, as we helped her plan her wardrobe and prepare her for her big day.
On the day of the shoot, she showed up expectantly excited. To ease her into things, we shot a quick fashion look for her social media before we dove into the boudoir experience. During that first look, I directed her on posture, angles and posing commands which she caught on super fast.
We moved on to her first more revealing outfit and let’s just say she was In her zone. Enjoy the results 🙂

HMUA – Katie Thierrien

HMUA = Hair and Make Up Artist 🙂

 

Hi I’m Katie. I’m a licensed makeup artist and hairstylist of 4 years specializing in hairstyling, beauty and special effects makeup for film, print, weddings, and events.  My favorite part of what I do is the new places it takes me and the diversity of new people and creatives  I meet along the way. I came to Atlanta three years ago and began to love working on films and  doing makeup for photography. Getting to contribute your art form to a bigger piece of art work and seeing the finished project is very satisfying.  I recently started working with a very talented photographer William Allen and got my first magazine publication in Ellements Magazine in December of 2018. When I’m not making people look their best I enjoy dancing and playing with my dog Chloe.

   Click the link for further details

Will my photos from the shoot be shared on the internet?

Not unless you grant permission for us to use specific photos that you select for our marketing purposes.  On our pre shoot agreement, you can initial and date granting permission or not granting permission.  Either way, your private images are kept safe.

Can I bring an escort/significant other?


Absolutely!  They are more than welcomed to come along & I may ask them to jump in and take a couple pics while you are changing ha ha.  We only ask that they do not take photos, stories or snap chats during the session as it tends to distract everyone from concentrating on making the best photos possible.

What should I wear?


Prior to the session date, we will consult with you on wardrobe suggestions and brain storm on procurement.  We will send you links to stores for you to choose outfits from.  We always suggest a cute one piece  as it flatters every shape and size.

Is nudity required?

Absolutely not,  You the client dictate what outfits that we shoot in.  Some clients choose to create implied nude fine art photographs with sheets and drapes, however as stated prior – the client is the driver of the session.

How much will you edit me? Can you photoshop my body?

Boudoir editing to me is more about “keeping it real” so to speak.  Where as editing for glamour and beauty take it to another level with liquefying parts of the body and totally smoothing out the skin.   I do smooth out the skin a touch to improve consistency and remove temporary blemishes such a bruises, pimples etc.  But for the most part, I believe if you are properly posed and the lighting is manipulated correctly, less editing is required.    For those that want more extensive editing, that can be discussed prior to the shoot or  the reveal session at a per photo cost basis. 

Okay I’m excited and ready to book!  what’s the complete process?

Excellent 🙂   Click on my scheduling link here to see our availability.  We only conduct up to 4 to 5 shoots a month so that we give 100 percent focus, creatively and attention to each client.  We are quality first instead of quantity  so book early – often as possible.

Day of the shoot, the remaining session fee is due when you arrive.  Hair and Make up will take an hr or so and we will begin shooting right afterwards.

Top 5 reasons why you should book w/ Us

Drum roll please……

5.  The ‘Space’

Our private creative space is a 1000 sf work/live loft with 20 ft ceilings located directly on the popular Atlanta beltline.  With the ability to shoot here or on location, we are proud to offer those options to our clients.  Unlike some in the industry that have to shoot exclusively outside or have to share studio space w/ other photographers, we do NOT share our studio with anyone – which means your session will be private & our ONLY focus.

4. Free Wifi

Nuf said 🙂

3.  Empowerment

There’s something about going out of your comfort zone, that gets your blood flowing.  The rush that you get, the exhilarating feeling of conquering your fears and inhibitions – It just makes you feel so alive again.  There’s nothing that breaks you out of your routine by booking a your own personal photo shoot – you are in control.  Its tough to feel sexy when life calls, but the moments you spend w/us for a session will make it all worth while.

2.  My wife 

Yes yes, I can wax poetic about how much I love and adore my beautiful wife, but you – my next client probably wonders how my wife pertains to you.   In the Atlanta market there are tons of photographers out there, specifically male.  It can be intimidating at least initially for a women to want to do a intimate portrait session or any shoot one on one w/ a male photographer ( that’s why it highly recommended that you bring a escort|friend with you to the shoot)  In my case, my wife is a major part of our team being a co -owner.  I never shoot one on one with a client, she is always present welcoming clients, assisting w/ lighting,  wardrobe selections,  conducting reveal sessions and is the best “hype man”.  Her warm outgoing personality makes you feel at home and relaxed – which creates an atmosphere for the best sessions.

1.  The Experience

Read this from recent client M.P. –

” I contacted William about a special boudoir shoot for my husband that was to be discreet and private. Not for public viewing. His level of professionalism is second to none. The loft and area around there are perfect for unique shoots, and he and his wife are very welcoming. The best part about it is he lets you be you, he gives you the feeling of being a million dollar model no matter your shape or size. I would recommend him for any type of shoot, and will be using him again in the near future”

That testimonial is one of many that sums up how your experience will be with us.   We offer a one stop shop – from our staff hair and make up artist’s handling your pre shoot preparations, to my wife handling everything else in between and myself on the camera, we work to ensure that your experience will be a great one.

Couple’s “Boudoir”

I like to shoot couples, however I like to do it in a non traditional way. When my clients C & A contacted me, I had a creative vision for the shoot which resulted in it being featured in Ellement’s body magazine. My first couples shoot to be published.. Enjoy ..
