Boudoir & Couples Photoshoot


Ever wonder about getting photos of you and your partner? Of course you do! Now, the real question. Do you want something special for your engagement or anniversary. Would you also enjoy a fun, romantic experience with your partner that you’ll remember forever?


So what are intimate couples photoshoots about? Well, its a celebration of your relationship! These images will be admired by you for years to come. They will spark memories.

We catch  intimate moments between our couples in a tasteful way. Moments that you often experience every day but do not get to see.


I was lucky enough to have my client, Ms S, allow for me to share both her boudoir images PLUS a few of the gorgeous image of her and her hubby.

She first came to me a few months back, a little nervous, but ultimately rocked her shoot! She asked me that day about doing a couples shoot, if she could talk her hubs into it that is. Lucky for me, the couple returned! This was one of the funnest shoots ever. We mostly cracked up through out the shoot and just had a ton of fun. It was also so special for me to see the look in their eyes when they locked gazes. So damn sweet!

So, how would you talk into a couples shoot!?

Already talked them into it!? Book now at Vintage Imagery

Vintage Imagery Studio Revamp

Hello Ladies!

As many of you know I’ve been working non-stop on my studio! We’ve installed new flooring, purchased new furniture and installed some nice little touches. This studio is an ongoing process and the next step is to install more shelving, update the wall with new treatments and (finally) install an actual ceiling!

Our studio is located about 15 miles from downtown St Louis, on the Illinois side in a little town called collinsville. We moved to this location about 2 years ago from our Troy, IL location. This studio is private and secure and for ladies only!! (Unless your steaming things up with a couples shoot!)

Many changes are still to come for out studio so check back in for more progress! We are still shooting/booking during this renovation as it continues onward over the next year or so.

Whats your favorite part of the new studio!? The shoe wall is mine!

Want something different?

Vintage Imagery is now offering a new service. Something that is as edgy as it is fun. This yields amazing and UNIQUE results. What is it?

Light painting!

So what the heck is that?

Light painting is a technique where we use hand held lights or light sources and a long exposure. A popular photo that wedding photographers do is to use long exposures to “write” in the air with sparklers.

So how can you use that in boudoir or glamour?

Well first we need a light source. Like this Pinkish robe light.




Once we have that, I run like a fool to “paint” color in and around you. The result?

Something completely unique and gorgeous.

The Best Grooms gift Ever-YOU! Kari’s Session

Ok, so it seems like EVERYONE is getting married or is engaged!! With that said, some of Vintage Imagery’s most popular types of shoots are Bridal Boudoir. Of course! What man wouldn’t want a sexy photo book filled with his soon-to-be brides’ gorgeous images? Give it to him before you say “I do”!  What guy wouldn’t go CRAZY with anticipation of the… uh… wedding night after seeing that? You can also wait until the honeymoon and hand him your photo book wearing your favorite lingerie from the session! (or lack their of!)
Whats even better though? Its one of a very few gifts that will give YOU more of a present than him! (and thats saying a lot!!)  Its a Win-Win really!
Remember too that you do NOT have to stick to your traditional bridal shoots. As you can see from this clients session, she had both sides of the spectrum going on-Sweet and Naughty!
Kari and I had SO much fun. We tried a ton of different poses and sets. I think we spent probably 3 hours shooting and giggling away!  We may have even broke into a bottle of Amurula, which is basically made from a  fruit that elephants get wasted on in Africa. Strangley enough (I didnt know it at the time) But the Murlua tree is also known as a “marriage tree”. Seriously, google it and buy yourself a bottle its amazing!
Needless to say, the experience is unforgettable!
And her photos? Yes, They went over very well with the Hubs! 🙂

Modern Pinup-Erin


I always get a little overly excited when someone wants to do Pinup! I mean, I LOVE boudoir, glamour, fashion, couples etc, but Pin Up… that is my secret artistic crush! I have so many pin up props and outfits, dresses, hats, shoes, garters and corsets that it should be a crime!

Ms Erin brought in her own adorable 50’s inspired dress and we simply added a crinoline from my closet (there are a lot of them in there) and a flower from my hair supplies!

Sherrie did an amazing job keeping Erin’s makeup retro inspired but still modern and fresh. And that color red she used on Erins lips!?  Where do I get my hands on that?!

Erin did an amazing job as she flipped her skirt, showed a little leg and flashed that killer smile at the camera.

Needless to say we had a blast… From the past!

St Louis & Illinois Boudoir Shoot- Penny

Perfectly Penny- Vintage Imagery Studio  2016P13w


I had the pleasure of doing a boudoir shoot for this most amazing woman! Not only is she sweet and beautiful but Penny is a mother who looks after four children, 3 boys and 1 girl and she just tied the knot in 2014! Like a lot of women, she loves to spend time with her family, go on trips, cook and hit the gym. She is also involved in her children sports events and is even the head coach for their football team. She also volunteers for local Collinsvilles Raiders football and wrestling associations.

Penny decided to treat herself (and her new hubby!) to some beautiful boudoir photos and when I asked Penny to tell me a bit about her thoughts going into this experience and how she feels now that she’s scratched it off her bucket list, she had this to say:

“I didn’t think I had the confidence to do it but did. I didn’t think that i was pretty but you proved me wrong! You were great to work with and made me feel special and devoted all your time and concentrated on me and what was going to make me look my best. You are sweet, energetic, and you made me feel at home and comfortable being naked in front of you, when the only person I am usually is with my husband. Great quality work and I cannot wait for my next set.”

Penny is soon to be what I lovingly refer to all my repeat clients as; “A Repeat Offender” Penny did an amazing job and helped to create stunning images that she and her hubby can and will share for a life time.
