"Once I received my boudoir photos I was blown away: “That is me?” Not only did I love them, but my husband's reaction was priceless. He was so impressed and loved the photos. Ten out of ten, I would do it all over again if I could!"
"Seriously, Justin is such an amazing artist. As someone who has always felt highly un-photogenic he made me look beautiful! I am so thankful I was able to work with him!"
I wanted to do something different and “out of the box” for my husband. After being together for 20 years and married almost 14, I was looking for something to spice things up a little and keep our relationship fresh, so I decided to step out of my comfort zone. I have to admit, I was a little hesitant to book my session almost 4 months ago when I found out the photographer was a male, but Justin Taylor was the utmost professional through the whole process. (And what better view for my hubby than a man’s point of view- they definitely see us differently than we see ourselves, and that is exactly what I was looking for! And his work is more like art to me!) From the very first phone interview, to consistent emails prepping me for my shoot to the actual shoot, I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I read several reviews before my session, and I have to agree with what everyone had to say. Justin made me feel very comfortable even with my own imperfections staring him in the face. There were several moments of pure laughter and sheer silliness to get the perfect shots. I would recommend Velvet Light Boudoir to anyone I know. I loved seeing my husband’s reaction to the photos!!"
"My shoot with Justin was so fun and easy. Right away, he made me feel very comfortable and safe while keeping the energy light and playful. I've worked with some photographers before and this isn't an easy thing to do, especially when being so exposed. Justin was respectful of my body and my time which are very important to me when working with someone. I've already recommended him to many women in the area and will continue to do so. Justin's the best!"
I was seeking a creative way to communicate with a long distance significant other, in addition to commemorating this moment in my life. A boudoir photo shoot seemed to be a good fit to do both. Justin made the entire experience as relaxed as possible. I felt there was a great attention to detail in communication before, during and after the shoot to ensure a complete level of comfort and professionalism. The final images exceeded my expectations and look beautiful in print!
Hello, I'm Justin Taylor. I'm a Savannah native, a Marine Veteran, the world's luckiest husband, backpacker, traveler, and obsessed photographer. In 2002 I picked up my first camera and immediately fell in love with the art of photography. After years of shooting landscapes and travel, I began to photograph the human form. At first, it challenged me to overcome my introverted nature, but then figure photography became my passion. When I realized that my photographs are a way to show other people a different side of themselves that changed their self image, I was hooked and Velvet Light was born.
My personal approach to boudoir photography is to create photographs that look intimate and natural. I treat every photo as a commissioned work of art, personalized for each client. I personally direct every pose and movement to give a personal look and to insure you look amazing.
THERE'S NO DOUBT ABOUT IT. BOUDOIR IS AN INTIMATE EXPERIENCE. YOU'RE CHOOSING TO OPEN UP AND SHARE A SIDE OF YOURSELF THAT YOU CONSIDER PRIVATE. EVERY CLIENT THAT I'VE EVER HAD THE PLEASURE OF WORKING WITH HAS BEEN NERVOUS BEFORE THEIR SESSION. NERVES ARE COMPLETELY NATURAL. DON'T WORRY. I'M HERE TO HELP EASE YOUR CONCERNS AND GUIDE YOU THROUGH THE ENTIRE PROCESS.
What should I do for my hair and makeup?
Professional hair and makeup are provided as a complimentary service with each boudoir session. I have partnered up with Hustle and Blow Dry Bar here in Savannah so that you'll look amazing in your photos! Even if you enjoy doing your hair and makeup, I would encourage you to take the day off. Jess and her team do a fantastic job. Let them pamper you so that you can relax before your shoot.
What if I don't know how to pose or be "sexy"?
One of the biggest concerns I hear from all my clients is that "I don't know how to pose or be sexy." I've got you covered! At the beginning of each session, I walk everyone through the posing process and guide you throughout the entire shoot to get the right shots.
How much should I expect to spend?
Investment options start at $550 and payment plans are available.
