We LOVE this men’s intimate wear

We love promoting intimate wear on our website, but it’s not often we have a recommendation for our male and masculine presenting clients.

All of that changes today.

Say hello to Viktor.

Their website says they’re the world’s most comfortable, best looking underwear and we have to agree.

We’ve seen all of their products and believe me when I say these are THE SOFTEST underwear I’ve ever touched. Honestly, I’m tempted to buy a pair for myself. You’re definitely going to want to buy them for a special someone in your life.

We all talk a lot about self care when it comes to women, but it’s just as important for men. And wearing these super soft, luxurious underwear all day will definitely feel like self care. And, as you can see, they’re pretty damn sexy so they’re going to feel like self care for you when he takes off his pants. ;)

The very best part? Under the Garter clients and fans get 15% off their orders! Just use the discount code underthegarter15 at checkout!

Knock Knock!

Who’s there?

Honeydew!

Honeydew who?

Honeydew you know how fine you look right now?

Our recent session with Ms. B got me thinking about how boudoir is like a good joke. Except, instead of a punchline, you have an amazing moment of self-actualization.

We had so much fun with Ms. B! From the initial emails, we knew that we were going to have a blast working with her.

From the moment she walked into our Denver, Colorado studio, we knew this would be a special experience for her.

We went right to work. If you call chocolate, champagne, getting primped by the best makeup and hair specialists in Denver work. Which we do!

Everyone was amazing and welcoming.  You don’t expect to tell knock knock jokes when lying on the floor in your lingerie. But that’s how comfortable and fun the experience was. From the warm welcome Melissa gave, to the early morning giggles with the hair and makeup artists, to Ray taking time to give you a few tips and, really, reminding you to just be yourself . . . it felt like an adventure with friends.
— Ms. B

Everyone has a different reason for getting a boudoir session.

From one-of-a-kind gifts for weddings and anniversaries to memorializing one’s point in life, we love learning everyone’s reasons.

I made the decision to do the boudoir photos as a gift to myself because I had been through a lot last year and decided to make 2019 The Year of Me.
— Ms. B
boudoir photography denver orange chair plants fireplace.jpg
boudoir photography denver orange chair regal blue slip.jpg

Regardless of the reason, it’s a journey that often changes people. We love going on that journey with our clients!

We work within the comfort level of all of our clients. Ms. B felt most comfortable swapping jokes with us. I love that contrast of sensual poses with absolutely corny humor!

There was so much shared laughter during the shoot! Ray made it clear that some of the best shots he takes are the unabashedly “you” shots, where you are laughing or not actively thinking “be sexy” or “be seductive.” We told bad “Dad” puns and knock knock jokes and laughed while I contracted my muscles and Ray climbed up over and under furniture to get the best shot. The most amazing thing is that, in a lot of the photos, Ray captured my personality exactly ... but he could not have done so had I not felt as comfortable as I did.
— Ms. B
boudoir photography denver blue slip vintage fur.jpg

The end result can be seen in the photos. Absolutely gorgeous and spell-binding.

But the best part, for us, is helping people complete their journey of self-actualization and growth in confidence.

I never thought of myself as model material. For the first time in my life, I saw a beautiful and vibrant woman before me. My boyfriend came with me to the reveal and admitted that, when I got choked up, he did too ... because he saw me seeing myself as he sees me and he honored to see that awakening. He also later said, “My girlfriend is hot AF,” which was a wildly entertaining and amazing compliment for someone who never saw herself as anything more than adorable and cute.
— Ms. B
boudoir photography denver bed pose.jpg

No punchline there. Only the reveal. The reveal of the way your lovers really see you.

When thinking about the perfect gift for your loved one, how often do you get stuck?

I know I do.

It’s easy to go down the rabbit hole of typical gifts. Jewelry. Power Tools. Flowers. Cards.

The dreaded tie.

Ugh. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve wandered around the men’s section of various stores in the mall trying to imagine what Ray would want or use.

Really, I get desperate to find something that won’t end up at the back of the closet or gathering dust in the garage.

That’s why personalized gifts can be so amazing.

I’ve talked with my friends and it can be the simplest things that make the most impact. Poems. Pictures. A movie date. A romantic dinner.

But what if you want to go the extra step? And make it a surprise?

(I tried to do it recently with my own boudoir session. Read it here!)

It’s one of the top reasons why people come to us. A boudoir session is such a perfect gift.

boudoir photography denver unzip dress smile.jpg

Mrs. M recently came to us with a similar goal. She wanted to surprise her husband with a professional photography session.

It doesn’t hurt that the experience comes with the highest degree of luxury. From the moment she walked through the door of our LoHi Denver studio, she was treated like royalty!

Champagne. Chocolate. Professional hair and make-up. Plus expert help in getting you to feel at ease and look your best!

The staff was friendly and professional and certainly put any nerves I had at ease! Melissa went far beyond my expectations in providing information to help prepare and took time to help me find shoes! She was incredible.
— Mrs. M

Everything we do is with a single goal in mind: to help you look your best!

I absolutely loved the portraits, they were incredibly natural yet gave me a sense of confidence I have never felt before.
— Mrs. M

Sophisticated and Classy. We use vintage furniture including a red chaise, an iron bed, and a vanity that helps gives your photographs a timeless sense of sensuality.

Through it all, we help you find your best poses. Some people feel a little sore the next day. Which is a perfect excuse to book a post-boudoir massage!

boudoir photography denver lace slip long hair.jpg

The best part, though, is the feedback we get from our clients. We love hearing about the reactions of the gift-receiver.

And what did Mr. M think?

My husband loved them!
— Mrs. M

That’s one of our favorite parts of boudoir. Helping install confidence in our clients plus fanning the fires of their romance!

It’s the gift not likely to gather dust!

Too many times, we come up with excuses about why we don’t deserve nice things. About why we shouldn’t take care of ourselves. About why we should never put ourselves first.

But let’s admit it… it feels good to put ourselves first once in awhile.

Having some “me” time helps keep us refreshed and recharged enough to tackle the day and care for our loved ones.

Sure, there’s the typical “me” activities. A little wine. Some yoga. Maybe a rom-com here or there.

What about “me” time that not only indulges you, but celebrates you?

(You know where I’m going with this…)

Have you thought about trying a little boudoir? Hmmm?

boudoir photography denver smile earrings.jpg

It’s not just because we own a boudoir studio in beautiful Denver, Colorado.

It’s not just because we get to work with the best stylists, makeup artists, and wedding planners to make unique gifts.

It’s not just because we love helping so many amazing people look (and feel) their best.

It’s also because of the feedback we get from our amazing clients of how good and empowered they feel after a boudoir session.

Ms. K recently completed a wonderful boudoir session and she shared with us what how much she enjoyed her experience.

It was a classy, extremely comfortable experience. You are made to feel gorgeous throughout the entire time you’re there and everyone is professional and fun.
— Ms. K
boudoir photography denver couch smile.jpg

A great session means great chemistry. And our studio was buzzing with chemistry!

The hair and makeup staff was SO wonderful and friendly, I felt like I was getting ready for a night out with my girlfriends! Melissa was SO sweet from start to finish and Ray was friendly, funny, and very professional (dad jokes and all) throughout the entire shoot.
— Ms. K

You look your best when you feel your best. So everything we do is crafted to help you sink into the luxury of the experience.

It’s a classy, extremely comfortable experience. You are made to feel gorgeous throughout the entire time you’re there and everyone is professional and fun.
— Ms. K

Ms. K bought this session as a gift to herself. Which is an amazing gift of self-love for such an amazing human being!

Thanks to Ray, Melissa, and the stylists for making this such an amazing experience! It’s easy to forget how beautiful we ALL are and how ALL shapes and sizes are beautiful. Under the Garter makes sure that you are reminded by capturing your beauty in a fun and classy way!
— Ms. K

So, no matter what you decide to do, remember to schedule your own “me” time. And if you decide to indulge in a boudoir session, we would love to share that journey with you!

Meet Ally & Melissa

So, what does the wife of a boudoir photographer do when she wants to gift her husband with a boudoir session, but she also wants it done in her studio and needs to keep it a secret from said husband?

She cooks up a little plan with her longtime makeup artist, they rent a camera and tell Ray that they’re just “playing with makeup upstairs.”

Okay, in all honestly, I married a very bright man who figures things out quickly.

And he married a woman who can’t keep a secret to save her damn life, so he definitely knew what we were up to upstairs.

This blog post could easily be called “why you should leave boudoir to the professionals,” because our day was full of chaos.

When you book a session with us, you’re surrounded by professionals who are catering to your every need.

The entire day is effortless (aside from that difficult posing!). You have a hair and makeup team transforming you in one room, while I’m in the other room putting together perfect outfits. There’s champagne and chocolate. Soft music is playing.

boudoir photography denver lace bodysuit bed pose.jpg

But when you’re trying to do everything yourself, things get messy quickly.

Two rooms looked like a lingerie store had been hit by a tornado, there was no one to offer champagne or chocolate and I’m pretty sure I was the most fidgety and nervous client Ally has ever had to deal with. She may or may not have had to remind me to sit still.

Oh, and she had to apply her own makeup at the same time.

CHAOS.

I don’t recommend it.

And yet, somehow in the middle of all of that chaos, we were able to create some really beautiful portraits.

Let’s just say I had a very happy husband on Christmas morning.

Wanna see what we created? Keep scrolling!

There is this mistaken belief that boudoir is all about conforming to some fake stereotypical “supermodel” standard.

Vacant faces. Forced poses. Stock lingerie.

NOT TRUE!

Boudoir is all about self expression! Just a part of yourself that few many ever get to see. ;)

That’s why we love it when people bring in their favorite outfits and props! Denver is full of some of the most creative people on the planet. And it definitely shows!

Mrs. R came to our LoHi Denver Boudoir studio wearing along Harry Potter style coat. It looked fantastic! So we naturally found a way to incorporate it into her session.

boudoir photography denver harry potter coat tattoo.jpg
Want to go a little crazy? Wear something that you didn’t think you could ever pull off! You’d be so surprised how amazing you look! You don’t realize how gorgeous you truly are sometimes and this just really shows you that!
— Mrs. R
boudoir photography denver back tattoos.jpg

This was Mrs. R’s second time with us, so she knew what to expect with the luxury photography session. Chocolate. Champagne. Professional hair and makeup.

The hair and makeup ladies did everything so fast! I am a tomboy at heart, so I’ve never been really big into fancy makeup or hair. They literally transformed me into a vixen! My husband absolutely adored how my eyes turned out.
— Mrs. R

Another misconception people have about a luxury boudoir session is that it’s serious. The truth is that we work within your comfort level. Anything to get your feeling relaxed and at your best!

boudoir photography denver smile lace slip.jpg

Ray makes you feel super comfortable and doesn’t pressure you to do any pose or outfit that would be beyond your comfort level. He’s super funny and just kept cracking “dad jokes” throughout the whole session. I love silly humor so it was perfect.
— Mrs. R
boudoir photography denver burgundy bodysuit fireplace.jpg

With her second boudoir session, Mrs. R decided to push her boundaries more… to amazing results! Her confidence and spunk shine through in every photo!

I went a lot more risqué this second time around. I have always been self conscious about my breasts and the portraits made me super happy about them! I was even brave enough to do completely topless shots! They made me feel super beautiful.
— Mrs. R

boudoir photography denver pink lace booty.jpg

She knew this time around that boudoir is about more than just the photos. It’s about the entire experience!

It’s a spa-like atmosphere with a professional, internationally-published photographer who can help you explore your sensually creative side.

The new studio gives a whole other feeling to the pictures and gave a warmer experience. The viewing was very intimate and lovely. I am reusing the same words over and over again but EVERYTHING about Under the Garter is fantastic!
