This page is filled with our most frequently asked questions. If there is a question or concern we did not cover here please feel free to call us at 702-664-2010 and we will be more than happy to assist you!
How do I prepare for my boudoir shoot, do I need to bring anything ?
Our Studios have an amazing "Fantasy Closet" filled with sexy lingerie, shoes, jewelry, props, and much more! However, we do recommend you bring a few personal items of your own! WE DO NOT PROVIDE UNDERGARMENTS (for sanitary reasons) therefore we always suggest you bring some black undies/bra, a pair of cute boy shorts, stockings and black heels. If you plan on spray tanning we suggest doing so at least 1-2 days prior to your shoot. Remember, you can never bring too much. So get creative after all this is your day to shine!
* If your package includes makeup/hair please arrive with a fresh clean face if possible and dry ready to curl hair. If you arrive with makeup that's ok too we can always take it off with makeup remover. Our signature Makeup line is MAC. Our hair styling is basic only (curls/flat iron) and does NOT include any updo's or elaborate styles. If you have clip in's you must put them in prior to your appt,
*Our "Fantasy Closet" does not include underwear!! (We do have various styles for sale $4 a pair)
What sizes does your Fantasy Closet accomodate?
Our Fantasy Closet can accomodate most women's sizes XS - 3X. Our shoe sizes vary womens sizes 5-11. Again, our closet is complimentary for our clients to use however we do recommend you bring a few selections of your own just in case our closet does not have something that suites your taste. VS Wings available in Laguna Beach location for an additional charge.
How long will I be there?
If you're getting makeup services with your shoot then plan to be with us for about 2-2.5 hrs. If you are arriving camera ready then you can be in and out in about 1 hour.
*If you are doing the "Supermodel" package please plan to be with us all day and make no other plans for a 6 hr time frame.
How much advance notice to book/cancel appointment?
BOOKING-We recommend you book your boudoir photo shoot with us at least 3-4 weeks in advance. Due to many out of town guests our Fri's/Sat's do book up very quickly!
CANCELLATIONS-We realize things come up that are unexpected so our cancellation policy is quite simple! As long as you call and cancel 48 hrs prior to your appointment we will reschedule your shoot, no problem! All deposits are Non-Refundable but are Transferable. If you do not call to reschedule within the 48 hrs notice we can choose to forfeit your deposit (managements call). No call/No show's we will definitely forfeit your deposit and may require you to pre pay shoot in full for next booking!
Who will be in the studio with me while my photos are being taken? Can I bring someone?
Only your Makeup Artist and Photographer will be in the actual photo shoot with you. Of course you can bring someone with you! We do have a few limitations though since we are very limited on space. No one under the age of 18, and only 1 guest allowed. Please keep in mind that boudoir photography is best without spectators. With more eyes watching it's very difficult for the client to fully relax. Out of all our photo sessions with and without a guest present the results are far better when the client has been on their own, relaxed and giving their full concentration to the posing and situation. *ABSOLUTELY NO OTHER PHOTOS ARE TO BE TAKEN IN OUR STUDIO this includes cell phones.
Do you retouch my images, is this service included in the price?
Absolutely we retouch your selected photos! Our basic retouching that's included consists of basic skin smoothing, teeth/eye whitening, minor blemish removal, and color correcting. For more extensive editing i.e (removing stretch marks, cellulite, wrinkles, skin folds, reshaping/sculpting, adding hair, shadowing, and anything else not covered under basic) we provide deluxe editing which starts at $25 per photo. Tattoo removal, Tan Lines, changing backgrounds/colors are an extra fee in addition to editing.
*Some packages/upgrades include all photos from shoot on CD or USB, CD'S/USB'S CONTAIN UNEDITED IMAGES. ONLY SELECTED PHOTOS THAT COME WITH YOUR PACKAGE GET EDITED.
Will you use my photos on your website? Do I own copyrights?
NO! We very much value our clients' privacy therefore the models you see on our Website, In Studio, or any Social Media have given us permission to use their photos. We own the copyrights to all of the photographs taken during a session. U.S. Copyright Law states that, without our written permission, it is illegal for you to reproduce the photos in any way including printing and/or selling the photos to others. It also states that your photos cannot be cropped or altered in any way.
If you would like to purchase high-resolution digital photos and a license to print or would like full copyrights to use the photographs, please call 866-GLAMPIC for pricing.
When do I get to view/select my images?
At Optionz we have same day viewing! Right after your shoot your images will be ready for viewing and at that time you can make your final selections. After you've made your selections your order will go into production and finished product/edits should be ready within 4-6weeks. For an additional cost we can also do a 72 hr turnaround RUSH SERVICE. We can also ship any product orders Nationwide for an additional fee.
