I have been married for three years now to my wonderful husband and have been with each other for a total of ten years now. We are not a perfect couple but we are perfect for eachother and I wanted to find a way to show him that Im still crazy about him and that is what led me to find Jenny Taylors Boudoir Facebook page.
I had researched different photographers around the area who did similar photography but none of them captured the "classy sexy look" like Jenny does. After months and months of going back and forth I finally gave Jenny a call and booked my boudoir session!
Jenny was fantastic over the phone with answering any questions. She sent me a "goodies" email that went into detail about the day of the shoot and what to expect and also gave many helpful suggestions to help me decide what I was going to wear. A week before my session Jenny called me personally and went over my two outfits and gave a summary of how the day will go.
The day of my photo shoot I was really nervous and I remember thinking on the way to her studio, " I don't have the perfect body and how am I going to walk around in lingerie in front of someone I barely know?' Before I knew it, I was there. Her studio was warm, welcoming, and very trendy! I felt relieved that it wasn't a creepy house that had a sign saying " Come into the basement." I felt safe.
I walked inside and met the makeup/hair stylist and she was amazing. She asked me if I had a look I was going for and since I wear my hair in a bun and headband and only wear mascara I told her that she can do whatever she wants ! The whole time we talked and laughed and I felt like I had known her for way longer than just an hour. When I looked in the mirror, I was amazed ! I couldn't believe that someone could make me look this good ! I wasn't that tomboy or messy haired nurse anymore. She was amazing and very talented. She made me feel beautiful. At that moment I was ready to take some sexy pics!
When it was time to be half naked I got nervous again. I worried that with any movement my boob would pop out or I would try and be sexy(so not me) and fly off the bed. Luckily, none of that happened. When Jenny started talking pictures most of my nerves went away and we were laughing and talking throughout the shoot. The time flew by and by the end of the session she had taken so many pictures.
Jenny Taylor really is an amazing young lady. I feel that I am a good judge of character and she truly is a genuine person who really loves what she does. She makes women feel beautiful and special again. Every women needs to have a boudoir session because Jenny helps you gain that confidence to love who you are. She has a gift. I originally wanted to do this for my husband but then I realized I really did it for myself.I needed a day of feeling sexy and beautiful. Thank you Jenny and all the wonderful staff. When my husband is 90 years old he can now look at my Boudoir pictures and say "look at my sexy beautiful wife".

From the beginning of our relationship we clicked right away. Jenny is one of the nicest, personable, best friends since grade school kind of person. We did our engagement pictures with her and they were fantastic, so I expected nothing less for the wedding. She was amazing. She came to the house early to make sure to get all the good shots; from my girls getting ready, to my dress before I put it on, to us leaving for the church in the trolley. From the time she stepped into the house I was at ease. She took care of everything! I didn't feel like there was some photographer there, it was like another one of my family members was there. She was there for every moment and even pictures that I wouldn't have even thought of. After all the beautiful pictures outside we headed to the ceremony. She was so good at letting me decide where I was comfortable and what I wanted to do. The heat was crazy and Jenny did such a great job of working with us and making sure we were still comfortable. After the beautiful ceremony we went to a local park and it was super fun!! Jenny was super willing to make sure that every picture we wanted to get, we got!! She kept checking the list I gave her to make sure every request I had was filled!! She was so involved in making sure they looked great without being pushy (which I loved!). At the reception, she was right there to make sure that ever picture was great and my entire lists of request fulfilled. I was so happy at the end of the night knowing everything I asked for was done! I didn't expect to be able to see any of the photos for a while since we took so many, but two days later she had a video already! You can't get any better than that!!!! She and her crew were fantastic and amazing! I wouldn't give her 5 starts I would give her 10!!!! I know that Jenny will be in my life forever because of the BEAUTIFUL work she does. I couldn't be any happier with my new FRIEND and would bet my life that everyone would love her as much as we do!!!

I chose to do a boudoir session as a gift to my future husband and I couldn't be happier with the overall experience.
Here is a recap of my experience: I first contacted Jenny Taylor Photography for package information and details. I wanted to do my research before choosing a photographer so I emailed and called other photographers as well. One of her Jenny's staff members contacted me via phone within hours with information. She even followed up our conversation with an email with all the details of our conversation. I was a little unsure if I wanted to book and her staff never pushed me or made me feel rushed to make a decision. After talking with other photographers, I ended up choosing Jenny based on how much I loved her photography and how great the customer service was. Many other photographers took a long time getting back to me, were reluctant to answer my million questions and some appeared generally uninterested in my business. When I finally booked, Jenny contacted me with a pay pal invoice and followed up immediately with additional information when I questioned something on the invoice. Before my shoot, Jenny contacted me to talk about outfits and other small details. I wasn't available during her call time so she went out of her way to call at a time I was available. She was enthusiastic and so easy to talk too. On the day of my boudoir, I was super nervous about what to expect!! I used the provided makeup services and I loved how it turned out!! Demetrea was professional and friendly and really calmed my nerves before the shoot. And my makeup looked awesome!! Jenny popped in during makeup to say hello and I immediately felt relieved that she was so nice and down to earth. She had music playing in the house and it really felt like I was just hanging out with friends. We went over my outfit choices and eventually the details about the package. I
loved that Jenny gave me the chance to look at different books before choosing one. I had been unsure prior to the shoot if I wanted to upgrade or not so it really helped seeing the choices that day. I upgraded to a fancier book and I am so thrilled that I did. The example looked amazing and I just couldn't pass it up!! Jenny was not pushy and really wanted me to pick what was best for me. During the shoot, Jenny explained to me how to pose and what to do. I was so nervous about the posing part but Jenny made me feel really comfortable, confident and sexy! We chatted during the entire shoot and it was unfortunately over before I knew it. I left the boudoir house that day feeling so thankful to Jenny and her staff for such an amazing experience. So far, I have only seen a sneak peak photo and it looked absolutely stunning, I couldn't believe that was me! I cannot wait to see the rest!
I would highly recommend Jenny Taylor Photography to anyone who is looking to do a boudoir session or another photography package. I couldn't be happier with my experience and I truly believe that I wouldn't have felt like this if I had gone with another photographer. Jenny is talented, professional and truly an amazing person to work with. If anyone is even the littlest bit interested in doing a boudoir shoot, contact Jenny Taylor and you will be amazed at how excellent the customer service and experience will be!! I hope to do another shoot soon!!

I can't even to begin to tell you how amazing Jenny and her staff are. I will be the first to admit I hate being photographed and pretty much shy away from being the center of attention so I thought I was crazy spending money on something I didn't think I would even enjoy. The day before my shoot I was pretty nervous and was ready for it to be over with. I am not usually a typical "girly girl" so picking out outfits was a struggle but Jenny was so helpful and excited to answer any questions I had before I arrived. She was more on top of my shoot than I was, which was extremely helpful because I didn't really know what I was doing. The day of my shoot I was starting to get nervous about what my hair and make up would look like. The stylists asked to see what I was wearing and what I was looking for with my hair and make up in order to pick a style that would make me look amazing in the photos but still let me feel like myself. When I looked in the mirror I was shocked to see so much make up and such a bold look but I knew it would make the pictures amazing. I did not meet Jenny until my hair and make up were complete and I immediately knew I had no reason to be nervous. Jenny was all smiles when she came into the room and I felt as if she was one of my long lost friends. I have never laughed so much in a one hour period as I did with Jenny and the time flew by. Jenny guided me through the whole shoot and I forgot I was posing for a camera half the time. I honestly can say I wish my shoot lasted for another hour. Jenny gave me so many ideas for amazing poses and I know she had a hundred more up her sleeve. After my shoot I was wondering if I would be able to come up with enough pictures I loved to fit an album and I was completely shocked when I found myself back in Jenny's office a week later buying more. Jenny made me feel like I was the most important person to enter the room and has a passion for photography that left me feeling confident and beautiful; and it wasn't just because of the fake eyelashes :) I originally did this for my fiance but I am not going to lie...a bought a couple pictures for myself too. Every girl should feel vain once in their life right? :) If you are even the slightest bit interested or if you feel like stepping out of the box and doing something completely daring and uncomfortable you will not be disappointed with your experience at Jenny Taylor's!! Jenny will definitely be on speed dial for my next photo shoot and I can't wait to see how she out-does herself next time :)

I really can't explain how awesome Jenny Taylor and Nikki the Hair and makeup artist are. When dealing with ladies there is usually a lot of cattiness between one and other, I feared that I would walk into a studio and have stuck up girls working on me, but it was exactly the opposite, both Jenny and Nikki were really laid back, never making me feel out of place...from the moment that I booked with my boudoir photos with Jenny, I have felt completely comfortable and knew that her company was the company for me. She is very personable, so you do not feel like you are just another client, she makes the point of calling you, to go over things in more clearly to make sure that you are on the right track for your shoot, to insure that your photos turn out great. Also she is very quick to get back to you...I found this real important because when I was out shopping for my outfits I would have a question about something, and she would get back to me while I was at the mall!!!Once I arrived at Jenny's studio I was greeted by Nikki, the hair and makeup artist. I felt completely comfortable with her. I normally do not wear a lot of make up, but she insured me that for the photos you need to over do it, in order for it to show up....I was a little nervous about my make up at first , but after I saw my photos she was right :) Nikki knows exactly what she is doing, she's an amazing hair and make up artist.. She not only made me look amazing, but she also made me feel comfortable. I do know about anyone else, but I usually do not walk around in lingerie and get my photos taken, so even though I was excited to do the shoot, I was also very nervous and but Nikki helped keep my nerves away while I was getting pampered.
Then it came time for my photos, this was the first time that I met Jenny in person, but it did not feel like it was the first time meeting her, she felt like she was an old friend, she has an awesome way of getting you to feel like you are right at home with a childhood friend. Never once did I feel stupid when I was getting my photos taken, Jenny is constantly complementing you, which helps make you feel more comfortable, allowing your photos to show the real you, not the stiff you :) Her work is absolutely amazing!!!! If she was not already booked on my wedding day I would definitely be switching my photographer, Im even considering trying to find a way to buy out the other bride that has her on my date haha :)...The way she decorated the studio is awesome...The whole studio is just classy/ sexy...I was nervous getting my photos back because I have had professional photos taken before and I never like the way that they turn out...But for the first time I can say that I ABSOLUTELY LOVE my professional photos that Jenny took of me....I love them so much that I am trying to figure out another reason to have her take my photos!!! I truly believe that if I would have gone to another boudoir photography that I would not of been as happy. Jenny Taylor is worth every single penny....Your boudoir photos will come out looking classy, elegant, and sexy ...Something that you will be proud of showing off...My only problem now is deciding which photos I want to use since she took so many good ones and waiting until September to show my fiancé !!!
DO YOURSELF AND YOUR FIANCE A FAVOR...BOOK WITH JENNY TAYLOR....and splurge on your self and get NIKKI to make you look beautiful
You will not be disappointed when you book with Jenny Taylo
