If you wonder why I love photographing boudoir, read this special thank you I received from a one of my wonderful clients
This "thank you" is very special. As you know, I originally contacted you for info on a boudoir photo session, full of nerves, and insecurities. I loved the idea of giving something like this to my husband for our 10 year anniversary, but being that I am 38 years old, and my body less firm than I was in my twenties...I was terrified. My body had been stretched out from pregnancy & child birth, and I also went through about 20 years of severe endometriosis, which was accompanied by multiple surgeries and scars. I suppose my worst fears of this process consisted of two big things...seeing myself in a way I never had, and...wearing my boudoir outfits in front of you (someone other than my husband). I have to say...you eliminated both of my fears, and I can't thank you enough for that. Not only were my pictures absolutely stunning & artistic, but you were so patient, and easy going, that putting on those outfits, and posing in front of you (and camera), wasn't really a big deal. It was like wearing a bathing suit, or visiting a doctor. You have such a calming, professional manner about you, that it really made the shoot easier than I expected, and actually...fun! You captured a side of me that I didn't even know I had..."sexy-pretty".
On my anniversary evening, after a lovely three course dinner, once back in our resort suite...I gave my gift to my husband. He slowly unwrapped the box, and pulled out the album. After seeing the very first page/pictures, his eyes swelled up with tears, and he looked at me, and simply said, "You are beautiful". After flipping through page after page of the album in silence, he finally said, "After 10 years of marriage, and being my best friend, I thought we had completely given ourselves to each other in every way...What an emotional surprise to see that you have found another way to give yourself to me, thank you."
I cant tell you how happy I am to have had this experience with you Ron and I have no regrets, and I'd do it all over again! Your photography skills are unmatched as far as I am concerned. You are so talented! My husband and I will reflect upon this album for many years to come.
Thank you for everything - it was an absolute pleasure.
"Ron came highly recommended from three different friends who used him for their weddings or boudoir. Ron was able to schedule my photo shoot within the week. He also got me my book within the month since we decided to elope last minute. He booked my hair and makeup and Veritas Winery's bridal suite all within that same week. All I had to do was pack a bag and show up. He is the magic man!
Yes- It's strange to imagine introducing yourself to someone then moments later standing in front of them without your pants on but Ron makes you relax and comfortable. Ron creates a professional, friendly, honest environment; I would highly recommend him to anyone!" ~ Camille A.

After a crazy two years of getting married, having a little boy, and running a business, I really wanted to do something special for my husband and myself. With our two year anniversary coming up, I knew that a boudoir session would be a perfect gift for him and I. Choosing a photographer wasn't an issue because I have been admiring Ron's work for years and I knew that I could trust him to make me look my best. Too be honest, I was very nervous.. I kept telling Ron I didn't feel physically ready to do something so revealing but he assured me that the shoot would be great. He was right.. It was amazing. Ron met me at the hairstylists and immediately put me at ease. He set me up with a great stylist who not only made me feel beautiful, she had such a great spirit that her excitement was rubbing off on me. During the shoot, Ron directed me and coached me on what poses would look best for my curvy body type. He was extremely professional and just a lot of fun to work with. Ron was there from the beginning planning process through the final ordering of the book to give me his professional opinion on every decision and make it a fun experience. The images exceeded my expectations and I have never felt better about myself. Not to mention my husband was thrilled. I would recommend Ron to anyone looking for a great experience!! ~Britney B.
