Meet Mr. A

Ladies, I want to let you in on a little secret:

Guys like feeling sexy, too.

We love it when you run your fingers through our hair (or lack thereof!)

Or when you squeeze our forearms and shoulders.

Or when you work your way very slowly to that very special place…teasing and tantalizing, but with enjoyment plain as day on your face.

Grrrowl!

Guys, now I’m going to tell you a secret:

Boudoir is not just for the ladies. And I’m not telling you that just because I’m a boudoir photographer here in Denver.

While you enjoy these awesome pictures of Mr. A, I’m going to tell you some of the many benefits of boudoir for dudes, or dudeoir.

1. Sexy pictures = sexy time.

I’m putting this first because, let’s face it, you’re probably thinking about it.

And it’s true.

It doesn’t matter your age, body type, or if you’re secretly a lizard person wearing a human suit.

Getting professional photographs make you look sexy af.

Your partner will love them. Your Tinder date will love them. Hell, your friends and family will probably awkwardly love them when you post them to Facebook to strut your virtual stuff!

2. Your new wingman.

Think of my camera as your wingman. It’s got your back to make you look freaking awesome! Your partner will be using these pictures as your new avatar in their phone. Everytime you text them, they’ll be reminded of how much they’re attracted to you!

male boudoir photography denver dudoir shower water.jpg

3. Confidence booster.

I get it. You’re a manly man. So manly that you don’t need a confidence booster since your confidence could make Chuck Norris wilt by being in your presence.

But let’s say that you want even more confidence. You’re like the blob, but with confidence. The Blobfidence. Don’t worry, it’ll catch on one day.

Then seeing yourself from a dudeoir session will change your mother-freaking life.

Want to see how sexy you are through your partner’s rose-colored glasses? Then check it out through our classy black and white lense!

Once you’re done, you’ll be saying, “Hell, I’d make out with me, too!

4. Because you don’t get spoiled enough.

I mean, not like this you don’t.

Sure, there’s the classic standby of beer, wings, and the game.

But, seriously. You got to try it.

Getting your skin and hair professionally done. Getting dressed (and undressed) to the nines. Getting posed and photographed.

And then, getting to see all your hard work pay off during your photo reveal!

Three Words:

Your. Partner. Will. Love. It.

Ok. Five words. But you get the gist.

Meet Ms. C

I feel fortunate to be doing boudoir photography in Denver. Not only are the people here amazing and we have some of the best landscapes in the entire world, the sense of entrepreneurship is unparalleled.

Take Easy Float for example.

It’s a Denver business that specializes in sensory deprivation. It helps promote rest, healing, and relaxation!

And they extend a special discount to clients of Under the Garter Boudoir!

Our recent client, Ms. C, took advantage of this perk, plus all of the other amazing things we offer as part of our boudoir experience.

Because that’s thing: boudoir is about so much more than sensual photos!

It’s about the entire journey, start to finish, all of the amazing things you get to experience, PLUS coming away with a beautiful keepsake that will last you the rest of your life!

In a world full of too many things with planned obsolescence, isn’t it great to invest in something with extremely high quality that is MEANT to last?

— Ms C

Even more than that, the boudoir experience tends to positively change those who go through the process.

Too many of us experience that constant state of self-sacrifice.

Don’t get me wrong, I love helping other people. I love making sure that the people in my life know that I love them and care about them.

It’s equally as important to take care and spoil yourself, too!

Ms. C got to undergo the full boudoir experience!

My favorite part would have to be just being able to open up and really seeing myself from others perspective. It was really awesome playing dress up and to feel like a model for a day.
— Ms C

One thing we hear over and over again is the experience of getting a professional hair and makeup makeover. Ally does a tremendous job listening to you, to fulfill your vision, and to make you look your best! Plus, so many people come away with new tips and tricks!

Ally did an amazing job on my make up and my hair was perfect exactly how I envisioned it.
— Ms C

We know how intimidating it can feel to do a boudoir session. That’s why we craft the entire experience to be as painless as possible from the initial email! Everything we do is with your comfort and satisfaction in mind.

Do it! It’s so much fun and you completely forget your nervous after the first 2 photos because you’re so focused trying to pose. Ray does a phenomenal job making you feel comfortable and Melissa really helps you out every step of the way.

The world population just hit 7.5 BILLION people for the very first time.

I sometimes feel overwhelmed getting through traffic or visiting the supermarket, much less imagining the sheer scope of fitting 7.5 billion people on this tiny blue marble rolling through space.

But when I think about every individual person, about their hopes and dreams, about their struggles and hardships, I’m left with a deep feeling of awe and amazement.

Even though there are so many people on this planet, one thing is certain: we are all unique in our own ways.

I see it every day at Under the Garter.

Luxury boudoir has a way of stripping away (literally and figuratively) the artifices that people use to surround themselves.

What we’re left with is the bare essence of a person.

And it’s always beautiful.

We loved working with Ms. A, recently.

And we especially loved her reasons for doing a boudoir session in our Denver studio.

I did this to feel comfortable in my skin again.
— Ms. A

We’ve seen over and over that the boudoir experience is so much more impactful for the person in the photos than the ever anticipated. That experience is only amplified when the session is for their own benefit and growth.

Earlier in the year I had an intense breakup that resulted in me gaining weight and being the heaviest I’d been in years.
— Ms. A
boudoir photography denver booty fishnets bodysuit.jpg

Every one of us is unique. And beautiful. And loveable. And worthy. No matter what happened in the past.

I’ve gone through my own long and intense journey to get to this place and I LOVE helping others find their own self-love. More often than not, it means celebrating the things that make you unique!

boudoir photography denver bodysuit fishnets wall.jpg

We were honored and thrilled when Ms. A stepped in our LoHi neighborhood Denver studio with her swagger and outfits.

It was a mix of something old and something new! We’re located in one of the oldest buildings in Denver (built in 1889!) filled with vintage furniture including a chaise, iron bed, and an exquisite vanity.

Then check out the juxtaposition with her amazing Spiderman bodysuit and Star Wars jacket!

Working with you two helped me in ways beyond the fabulous pictures. For once I felt confident and worthy despite what my outward appearance was.
— Ms. A

The contrast of “nerdy” outfits with sexy lingerie creates a striking effect that celebrates the complete and beautiful essence of Ms. A on this busy, bustling planet.

One of the things that makes us feel great is when we get repeat clients.

Even better, is when they bring their significant other to do a boudoir session with them!

Mrs. N visited our LoHi studio to make a very special present for her husband. He loved the photos so much that he was inspired to visit us for a dudoir session.

She even joined for a few photos!

Working with guys presents its own unique challenges, so it’s understandable when some guys are nervous.

male boudoir photography denver dudoir biceps forearms.jpg

We go through a lot of the same preparations that we do for our female clients.

There are the initial emails where we find out what you want to do with your session. We give you tips and advice.

We go the extra mile to make sure everyone feels warmly welcomed and comfortable!

When you feel relaxed, your inner sexiness shines through!

Every guy still gets the royal treatment:

Snacks.

Some bubbly.

A goodie bag full of skincare products and more snacks.

We have the best makeup and hair artists in Denver, to ensure that your masculine energy radiates through the camera.

We loved our guys in all shapes and sizes. Often times, you’re at your sexiest when you’re just being yourself.

I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve been hypnotized by my husband as he’s working on his motorcycle or washing the dishes.

Something about his sleeves being rolled up and watching the muscles on his forearms…

Mr. N did an amazing job settling into himself. Take a look for yourself at how graceful and powerful these pictures turned out!

We love the contrast of his well-toned body with the plush luxury of the vintage furniture in our studio.

Then when you add Mrs. N to the mix…

Well, let’s just say we were tempted to crack open a window since it was getting so hot in there!

We loved the chemistry between these two. It was a great change of pace to capture their love and sexual tension.

We feel honored that so many people trust Under the Garter to create their forever memories through our boudoir photography.

We’ve found that it’s the perfect way to create a snapshot of this point in your life, to celebrate yourself and each other, and to create a unique, one-of-a-kind present that you just can’t get anywhere else!

We hope that Mr. and Mrs. N love their photos for years to come!

It’s official. Winter is here.

And while Denver is full of cold weather enthusiasts, there are still those of us who shy away from the snow like cats from water.

boudoir photography denver sheer lingerie tattoos.jpg

For us, wintertime is the perfect time for fires, hot chocolate or buttered rum, movies, and snuggles.

Especially the snuggles!

Wintertime is also the perfect time to turn inward for reflection, self-awareness, and growth.

What does this have to do with boudoir?

Well… everything.

Boudoir is more than sensual photos which make great gifts for birthdays, weddings, and the holidays.

As many of our clients have found it, it’s an amazing opportunity for growth and change.

You see, so many of us have warped perceptions about ourselves. We’ve grown up with bad photos from amateur photographers, disposable cameras, awkward school photos. Not to mention all of the horrible lighting in bathrooms and warped mirrors.

Then when you compare yourself to the models in magazines or actresses in movies, you might think you’re a hideously ugly troll, completely disregarding the fact that you have loved ones who think you’re hot enough to want to squeeze your tushy all of the time.

boudoir photography denver butt bed.jpg

Boudoir is the great equalizer.

That’s why it’s awesome!

That first reveal, when you can see, without a doubt, the beauty that others have been talking about for years… it’s life changing!

What’s even better is coming back later to document and celebrate your life journey.

boudoir photography denver topless bodychains.jpg

We love our clients who come back!

Think about it: would you only get one massage in your life?

Hell no!

That’s why we loved it when our friend Aleey came back for another session.

She’s absolutely gorgeous and we got to have even more fun with creativity the second time around. We got to try out new ideas. Plus the first session jitters weren’t really there.

Confident. Creative. Captivating.

We love treating Denver to luxury boudoir sessions so much that we started a referral program.

Check it out:

Book a follow up shoot, get $100 off your session fee.

boudoir photography denver floor pose.jpg

Send a friend our way to help your friend save $100 PLUS you get $100 towards products or another shoot! And yes, that’s for each friend you send our way. Why? Because boudoir is that awesome.

And boudoir is for everyone.

Couples.

Maternity.

Dudes.

Our clients have been known to hang their photos around their house.

Which, during these long winter nights, totally leads to more snuggles…

Talk about a win-win situation!

Wanna experience it for yourself? Talk to us about booking your boudoir session!

In the classic movie The Princess Bride, the late great Peter Cook plays the role of a priest officiating the ceremony of Princess Buttercup to the evil Prince Humperdinck.

It comes at a crucial time in the movie, when Humperdinck is forcing Buttercup to marry him.

The priest bids the couple to rise from a kneeling position. The costumes are exquisite. The chapel is beautiful. The tension is high in the air when the priest opens his mouth and says,

"Mawage. Mawage is wot bwings us togeder tooday. Mawage, that bwessed awangment, that dweam wifin a dweam... And wuv, tru wuv, will fowow you foweva... So tweasure your wuv."

His accent is out of control! It brings a much needed comedic relief to an otherwise tense moment.

Sometimes, when we’re photographing, that line runs through my mind. Not for any humorous intent, but because the words, when you get past his accent, ring true for a lot of our clients.

Marriage is what brings us together today. That dream within a dream.

More specifically, how to get that dream within a dream alive.

Any marriage has its ups and downs and the longer you are together, the more dangerous the ruts can become.

We get into these habits. Sometimes, we even take each other for granted.

What we’ve seen time and time again is that boudoir is a great way to help couples get out of that rut!

boudoir photography denver blush pink slip velvet couch.jpg

Living in Denver, Colorado, we’re blessed with an abundance of sunny days and amazing opportunities. But just like anyone anywhere, we can get caught up in the rat race.

Boudoir is an amazing opportunity to shake things up and slip back into that dream within a dream!

Mrs M recently came to us to make a unique gift for her 19th wedding anniversary. That’s a huge milestone and achievement!

It wasn’t a familiar situation, and it definitely expanded her comfort levels, but she found that working with the Under the Garter staff was easy!

They were warm and caring. In this situation you’re not always the most comfortable, but after a while I felt like I had known Melissa and Ray for years!
— Mrs M
boudoir photography denver black lace.jpg

From the time she contacted us to the photo reveal, we worked with Mrs M to feel comfortable, informed, and part of the process.

There is a huge benefit to pushing beyond your boundaries. You get to discover new things about yourself!

At first I didn’t think it was really me. After seeing them, I felt very empowered! Wow, I really look like this!? Awesome!
— Mrs M

We’ve heard from our clients that boudoir is a gift that keeps on giving. It spices up their lives and helps them slip back into that “dream within a dream!”
