Tampa Boudoir Photography | One Of Our Favorite Poses

We often get requests for certain poses, and today we thought we'd share one of our top-requested looks!  This is one of our favorite poses for boudoir photo shoots....all of our clients love it!  It's a super flattering angle for almost any body type, and just about everyone chooses an image from this pose for their Boudoir Book.  It's definitely a go-to favorite!!

Room 3307 5 Year Anniversary!

We can hardly believe it's been FIVE YEARS since we first opened the door to Room 3307!! These last 5 years have gone by in a blur of wonderful memories, lessons learned, fabulous clients turned friends, laughter, beauty and fun!  We are so excited to see where the next five years takes us!!  (YAY!!!) To celebrate this milestone in our business, we're taking 1/5th OFF the price of any Room 3307 Experience booked today until the end of this month (July 31)!  The session must take place by November 30th, 2014. Now that's reason to celebrate!!

Thank you so much to every single person who has been a supporter of our business...you know who you are and we love you!!  C&Z

Tampa boudoir photography studio celebrates 5 year anniversary of being in business. Happy 5th Anniversary to Room 3307 boudoir photography!

Behind the Scenes | The Making of Our Boudoir Experience Video

Our boudoir behind the scenes video that we posted recently has a few behind the scenes moments of its own!  We thought we'd share a few of these images with you so you can see how much work went into the creation of our video, and how much fun we had while making it!  I guess we were a little too busy to take photos of each other, and we're bummed we didn't get a crew group shot at any point, but we're happy to share what we've got!  :) Bryan Coward of Lucky Lemon Films and Ryan Dillow of MAD Cannon Productions had their work cut out for them as they had to bring all of their gear up to our studio on the 3rd floor!  They worked out a game plan and set up while Carolina and I (Shem) tried not think about the moment we'd be in front of the camera!

After filming our intro scene with Crystal, Jess Waldrop of Jess Waldrop Makeup Artists started working her magic!  LOVE these girls, and their silly sense of humor!  (Kinda matches ours, haha!)  We're also grateful to them for sprucing us up a bit (okay, a lot!) and getting our faces camera-ready!

Remember this scene in the video?  This is what Carolina was shooting on the other side!  Hi, Bryan!

These are two of the very few shots we have of ourselves that day!  Next time, we'll be sure to get a few more, maybe without hiding behind other people.  ;)

SO much work went into getting the perfect lighting and sound for each scene; and then Bryan would shoot from a variety of angles, giving direction to Crystal as he saw the final piece coming together in his head.  In between filming, we continued our session just like any normal day!

We gave direction to Crystal like any other client...this was her first time doing anything like this, just like most women who come to us for a shoot!  It was a ton of fun to work with her, especially because she's NOT a model (even if she looks like one!)!  She's like every other woman that comes through our doors...except she's also a friend, which made it even better!  She was a trooper having all kinds of cameras in her face all day, too.   (Thank you, Crystal, we love you!)

We don't want to leave out our amazing assistant, Amber!  She was there for us all day long, taking care of pretty much anything we asked of her!  (Supplying us with Starbucks coffee, making sure we got our Chipotle fix, being our lighting test subject...she even put together a cotton candy machine and made fresh cotton candy in our studio!!)  Here she is helping us test the light for the cotton candy scene.  Thanks, Amber!!

All in all, it was an amazing, if tiring, day!  With everything that Bryan did for us that day, we most of all thank him for giving us the following two images, which we think you'll agree need no explanation, and we're sure his wife will want copies of.  (That's right, ladies, this one's taken!)

And that's a wrap!!  Thanks so much again to everyone who helped us make our video shoot a success!  And please check out Lucky Lemon Films if you're looking for any kind of creative video production...Bryan and Tracey are AWESOME and will help you create something you never dreamed possible!  Take it from us...they ROCK!

Boudoir Outfit Inspiration: This Isn't Your Mother's Nightgown!

Although it's called a "dress" on the Agent Provocateur website, we'd suggest you don't wear it out for a night on the town! This super sexy, eyelash lace gown is as dramatic as it gets! Paired with stilettos and a bold lip color, this would be a showstopper! The only question remaining is, what would you wear underneath? Would you go for a swimsuit or lingerie as the website suggests, or something else? Let us know what you think! Fionna Kaftan dress by Agent Provocateur, a great outfit for a boudoir photo shoot!
