Deep inside all of us lies the appreciation for the beautiful. This innate sense of awe comes naturally and without effort when we watch the sun disappear over the horizon, but sometimes seeing the beauty in ourselves feels impossible. Unfortunately, we often assign value to ourselves based on how we measure up to what society has dictated as beautiful. How are we supposed to love ourselves when we don't feel beautiful or valuable? And if that isn't bad enough, look up “self love” in a thesaurus and here's what you'll find: “vanity” “narcissism” and “pride.” How are we supposed to feel beautiful when society tells us we're full of ourselves when we do? Here's a controversial idea: self rejection is not a virtue and feeling beautiful is not obscene.
This concept is all too familiar for us. Through our own journeys towards accepting ourselves, we both realized that the support we gave to each other has made the process infinitely more meaningful. We knew immediately that we wanted to use our personal journeys and our skills as photographers to help other people celebrate the beauty within themselves.
"Stephanie and Bradley are seriously two of my favorite people to be photographed by. They have a very artistic eye with everything they do and it translates really well to their photography. I love that their work has a more creative approach than the traditional photography we are all so used to seeing. They both make you feel extremely comfortable about yourself and make all of your insecurities melt away when they photograph you. Anyone would be lucky to have these to gems photograph them. HIGHLY recommend a boudoir shoot with these two - you will NOT be disappointed"

"Stephanie and Bradley were a delight to work with! I had some hesitation working with a husband and wife team, similar to how a lot of photographers won't do couple boudoir photography, but it was completely misplaced. Stephanie and Bradley are professional, encouraging and talented. The air bnb where we had our session was so adorable and the makeup artists they used was great! Sometimes boudoir is a nerve-wracking process, but they made it a breeze and they got my images back to me so quickly that I would definitely work with them again! "

"I had amazing experience with Amorous Boudoir! Both photographers were professional, respectful, and knew what they were doing. The entire experience was efficient and they wasted no time advising me how to pose and what to do. The space we worked with really only had two rooms yet they worked with all the angles and poses to make each image unique. This was my first boudoir experience and I couldn't have asked for a better one! The pictures turned out gorgeous and I felt like a million bucks from start to finish! I'll be happy to look back at these gorgeous images when I'm older :) Thank you Amorous Boudoir!"
