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.
