“I discovered a FANTASTIC establishment that I endorse and recommend completely. When I reached out to Modern Love, I always got a response within 24 hours. I voiced every concern I had, and all email correspondence was professional. I decided to pay for hair and makeup by Mikala and she is more than a makeup artist, she’s a natural. Great, cheery personality (not saccharine or fake) and openly discusses the look you and her are going for. Might I just add, that I would give anything to pull off the hairstyle she did for me. damn.
Working with Katie was a blast as well, she just kind of lays her tips out on the table and you dive right in. She is so enthusiastic about her work it made me enthusiastic to even be there, and get a high five for pulling off a pose! She really knows how to have fun with you, set you right where you need to be, and get the most out of what you have to offer.
The viewing was excruciating. Honestly there wasn’t a single image I wouldn’t have loved to come home with. I must have spent 30+ minutes squinting my eyes, scratching my head, and asking, “why? WHY must they all be so amazing?!” I couldn’t believe I looked that good.
I was so proud of myself I told them to use my pictures for whatever they wanted. I really felt that confident.
Overall, I felt like I was having a day with the girls. Every one of them were very complimentary and relaxed. I am telling every one of my friends about this studio and plan on coming back to them for my photo needs. Looking at their images makes me want to get married. haha. But seriously, the money you pay is beyond worth it. I’ll be picking up my finished images in a week and can’t wait to see the work (Denise’s daughter who has a very unique name…) will do.
Thank you, Ladies! Keep up the awesome work!”
“Denise, I just wanted to take a minute to write and tell you what an amazing team you have put together and working for you. I came in this past Friday for my first boudoir session and it was an awesome experience.
Each girl was completely fit for their role there…Mikala was a doll, full of life, motivated, FUN to talk to and full of positive energy. Kate was amazing at her job…great at explaining the poses and making you feel at ease, sweet, calming, patient, and seemed to really LOVE her job. Sakara was patient and really helpful in the choosing my images process. I really can’t say enough nice things about all of them and I just thought you should know. Thanks to your staff for giving me such a great experience and pictures that I just LOVE!
I love the class and beauty of your studio as well….big thumbs up from me!”
“This review is LONG overdue…
Let me start by saying that before my awesome first-hand experience with Modern Love Photography, I was part of a wedding that they photographed and loved them immediately! So when I saw a LivingSocial deal for a boudoir session from them I purchased it right away.
The entire experience from hair and make-up, to my photo session with Katie, and my image viewing session an hour later was just a dream come true! The entire team is beautifully talented and made me feel 1000% comfortable (and beautiful)! Please note that, for the most part, my regular-on-the-daily-steez consists of minimal make-up, sneakers, T-shirt, and skinny jeans. But lately, I’ve felt more comfortable in my skin and wanted to step outside of my comfort zone by doing a boudoir session.
This boudoir experience was meant to be part of a surprise Christmas gift for my husband and I ended up surprising myself! I had no idea I had it in me and I cannot stress it enough, it was all thanks to Katie! She completely calmed any nerves I had and I felt amazing. When it finally came time to view/select the images to purchase I had the hardest time choosing the best of the bunch because they were ALL beautiful!!
My boudoir session was over three months ago and I am still beaming with confidence and light! For lack of a better reference, I felt like Beyonce in her video for “Partition”. Please trust and believe me when I say that if you choose Modern Love Photography you will not be disappointed (and neither will your bf/gf, wife/husband)! I love them so much that I’m trying to find an excuse to schedule another session with them!”
“There are so many great reviews on here already, but I just wanted to add my 2-cents to fully rave about my experience with Modern Love’s boudoir photography services. I was a little nervous about everything from the hair and makeup services (will they make me look like a drag queen?), to letting others see me almost naked, to posing “sexy” (the looks I tried at home were the complete opposite, let me tell you!). Luckily, everything turned out great, and I had the most fantastic time. Mikala worked her make up artist magic and I ended up looking like a goddess. Katie was my photographer and put me at ease almost immediately. She was fantastic at coaching poses and expressions — I couldn’t believe I was able to “look sexy” within just a few shots! The “worst” part of the experience was having to choose through the almost 100 photos (from only a 30-minute session!) and only pick one. I ended up getting 5 more digital files! It was a splurge, but the photos were amazing. Communication and appointment set-up was a breeze. I highly recommend this experience to anyone who wants to feel beautiful and sexy. As another reviewer said, it’s a really empowering experience.”
“I just had my first boudoir photo session with Katie yesterday. Yes, first. I plan on being a repeat customer. From the moment that I stepped into Modern Love Photography’s studio to the final hugs and goodbyes my experience was nothing but phenomenal. The entire staff was absolutely fabulous and made me feel so comfortable. Not only are they professional superstars but they helped me feel good about myself and my body. I chose to do the boudoir photos as a gift to my husband. Ultimately my experience at Modern Love was a gift to me. I can’t thank them enough for this.
Every stage of the shoot was an incredible experience. The studio itself is breathtaking and the sets are gorgeous. The beds, couches, bedding, and accessories are beautiful and cozy. I felt like a queen! Katie is a master at helping a woman strike a pose and capturing unbelievable moments. Her manner while photographing is comforting and supportive.
After the shoot I was able to return an hour later to view a slide show of the photographs. I imagined I would be embarrassed to view myself but the images made me feel powerful and confident.
I recommend Modern Love’s services whole heartedly. It is a transformative experience with beautiful photographic results.”
“I had a really great experience here. I loved working with Katie and the whole time I was there I felt incredibly comfortable. They showed you what poses to do and it was really easy to follow their directions. I felt super relaxed and incredibly gorgeous during the shoot. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to have a good time!”
“I have been sitting here trying to figure out the right words to explain just how amazingly wonderful my experience with Modern Love has been. There are, quite simply, no words! With only a couple weeks until his birthday, I emailed Katie that Sunday night. Much to my surprise, she answered just a couple hours later in so much detail, with an appointment for that Friday! The follow up emails and conversation between us really eased me into the experience and left me feeling well prepared the day of the shoot.
My appointment was Friday afternoon and although it took me a little while to find the location (one way streets will always get me), I arrived an hour early to get my hair and make-up done. It was $95 but SO worth it. Mikala is a make-up genius! She knew just the right colors to use to bring out my eyes and just how to contour for the most flattering angles. Not to mention, the experience alone was worth it. Mikala was so sweet and really calmed my nerves before the shoot. After my hair was perfectly curled and my face all made up, it was my turn in the studio. The studio itself is AMAZING. It’s a loft with a few different sets, all that evoke the playful, sexy, sweet feeling that you look for in boudoir photos. After quickly chatting with my photographer Katie (who is even sweeter in person that in e-mails), I was left to change. I had issues with my thigh highs, but Katie was there to help me with my entire wardrobe when I asked. Then the shooting began! My nerves were at an all time high, that whole day, but I relaxed so much when the camera started clicking. Katie patiently walked me through all of the poses, doing them right alongside of me before each shot. I never felt like I was doing it wrong, which made me feel sexier and sexier as the shoot progressed. With some photos by a window and some on the bed, I really thought it would get awkward at some point, but Katie is a real professional. She definitely knows what she’s doing. Once the shoot was over, I was sad it had to end. I left the studio with an amazing buzz of self confidence and excitement. Even if I hadn’t gotten any photos out of it, the experience itself would have definitely been worth it. Normally the photos are available to view about an hour after the shoot, but the editor had to run out of town last minute the day of my appointment. Instead, I scheduled something for early the next week. The ladies were so apologetic, but I didn’t mind. I was actually kind of excited to draw out the experience even more. I met with Sakara the next Wednesday. She had soft-edited all of my photos and had them all prepared as a slideshow for me to watch on their big screen TV. After my mind was completely blown by the amazing photos Katie took, Sakara patiently sat with me while I narrowed down my choices. Not once did I feel pressured to purchase more photos than I was financially comfortable with, and I had so much fun going through them all. When I finally got to my final decision (eight photos total, a few more than I planned for but I just couldn’t help it!), the payment was seamless. I was able to use a credit card and had a receipt e-mailed to me immediately. No more than two hours after I left, I was e-mailed the link to my final gallery. The photos were all saved to a beautiful, personalized site and I could NOT stop staring at them. The work these three ladies did was absolutely phenomenal. I was able to open the site on my phone, save the images to my personal photos folder and then I couldn’t help but send a lot of them out to my friends! I have been buzzing ever since I first stepped foot into Modern Love. I really cannot recommend shooting with them enough. Whether you want a sexy gift for your significant other or a big boost of self confidence, you’ll be amazed at how these women make you feel. For now, I’ll enjoy my eight fabulous pictures and continue looking for an excuse to return to my three new friends. I absolutely cannot wait to see my boyfriend’s face when I surprise him with these photos! I just know he will LOVE them as much as I do.
Thank you, Modern Love, for a wonderful day of pampering and fun and for eight gorgeous photos that I will cherish forever!”
“Katie did a budoir shoot for me a few weeks ago and I couldn’t be happier with it! I had no idea what to expect but it exceeded any expectations I had! The photos are gorgeous, Katie is awesome, and I felt totally comfortable.
Also, Michaela did my hair/make up – which looked great. Denise, the owner, helped me choose which photos I was going to keep and she was super professional and helpful. I’d recommend these ladies to anyone and would certainly use them again in the future!”
“Words cannot express how much fun I had today with the Modern Love team! I’ve never felt more beautiful and sexy in my life. They are extremely professional and accommodating.
I would highly recommend them for a boudoir shoot, e-sesh or capturing your special day! You will NOT be disappointed with in the quality of your photographs.
Thank you again team Modern Love for such an awesome day!”
