Frequently Asked Questions
What are the benefits of using a professional photographer for my private photos?
You should do a bikini sunrise, boudoir, glamour or pin-up shoot because you are gorgeous! These make the perfect gift for your hubby (or fiance). They are great send-off gifts for your special man that is being deployed. We have had several girls book with us just for themselves. It is a big confidence builder and loads of fun! Christmas, Valentines Day, anniversaries - is there a bad time to receive a gift like this?
What should I wear? Props?
For BOUDOIR, we suggest you bring the outfits that make you feel sexy. Lots of lingerie and don't forget the heels - the higher the better. Perhaps his favorite shirt and tie, military or work uniform, or sports jersey. By all means, bring the lingerie or outfit he likes best. We have furs, hats, jewelry and sports props to complement your session but feel free to bring your own.
For PINUP, you are going for the sensual but sweet look. Clothing is important but hair and make up are key. Our experts will handle that part - you bring the "nothing but glam" attitude! Generally polka dots, fishnet stockings, high heels, garter belts and corsets will work. We request you bring your own outfits, but are happy to consult with you beforehand to provide guidance. We have a wide variety of vintage props but we encourage you to feel free to bring your own.
If you are looking for the cheesecake pinup look (Varga or Esquire Girls), go for polka dots, high waste pants or short party dress with crinoline and anything "I Love Lucy" or Bettle Grable. For the provocative pinup (Bettie Page or Betty Boop), go with leopard prints, leather and anything cleavage. For the Grease / Rockabilly, go for capris and halter tops and anything that shows your "ink", if you have any.
Aren't you a guy photographer?
Yes, I am a guy! I have female assistants that take care of all the posing, primping and such. They make sure you look great and are comfortable throughout your visit with us. You have a private dressing area. We are completely professional and we are happy to supply you with references upon request.
How about off-site locations?
With BEACH portraits, we have select locations for you to choose from or we can come to you. Myrtle Beach does not allow beach portraits within the city limits. Locations north of Cherry Grove or south of the Myrtle Beach Airport require an additional fee of $50.
For PINUP, we have a number of great locations including diners, theatres, plantations, railroad depots, vintage cars and garages. Please contact us for details and pricing.
We do travel. Ask us about our offer "help us book 5 of your girlfriends, in your city, same day, and your photo shoot is free!"
Can I mix BOUDOIR AND PINUP styles?
Yes, most of our clients want some of both styles. There's no extra charge.
Can I bring a friend?
I always encourage the client to bring a girlfriend to the shoot. Girlfriends are awesome for getting you laughing and keeping you relaxed during the shoot. You might want to encourage your girlfriend to shoot the same day. This allows you to take advantage of our DOUBLE TROUBLE PACKAGE and save both of you a few bucks on your photo shoot.
How soon will I receive my photos?
You will receive your proofs within 48 hours. You will receive your finished photos within a week upon your selection from the proofs.
Will my pictures be used on your facebook, blog or website?
We will NEVER use any images that show your face or any other recognizable features (such as tattoos, birth marks, etc.) without your written permission.
I don't live near your studio - do you travel?
We do travel but additional fees apply. Our studio is located in Myrtle Beach, and we easily cover much of the coastal areas of the Carolinas with frequent shoots from Wilmington, NC to Charleston, SC. We love to pack up and head out of town. If you arrange for FIVE girls to book photo shoots with us in your town, we will fly, drive or swim to your area. For helping us book the FIVE girls, YOUR shoot is 100% FREE.
