“My photo shoot experience with Erik Patton Photography was everything I had hoped for and more than I could ever expect!!
I decided that I wanted to celebrate my 42nd birthday with a photo shoot. We memorialize our academic achievements and professional accomplishments so why not honor individual external beauty with a photo shoot? It took me only a few weeks of researching photographers and reviewing picture galleries to know what I didn’t want my experience to be like. I had a gut feeling that when the right photographer was presented to me I would just “know it”. Enter the Patton Boudoir experience – classy, glamorous, elegant, sexy … overall excellent from start to finish.
Starting with my preliminary communication with the very professional and pleasant studio manager Miss Lorna I knew I had made the right decision. The process to set up the initial appointment was quick and effortless. Once I met with Erik for our consultation I was thrilled. Erik is such a genuine person and I could sense this that he truly cares about his clients and wants to ensure a positive and memorable experience. We looked through some boudoir portfolios, chatted about what I was hoping to get out of the experience, and narrowed down ideas for my shoot. The date was finally scheduled and I had a few weeks to figure out my outfits and to mentally prepare.
I was so excited leading up to the day of the shoot but also a little nervous as I wasn’t sure if I was going to be a “good model” but knew I would be ok with such a supportive team. I can not stress this enough – having a professional make-up artist is a must. I was a little skeptical at first because I really wanted to have a “natural look” for my pictures and I was afraid of the “cakey-made-up” look. Well artist Grace Sheikh delivered. She did a wonderful job on my hair and make-up – just take a look at the photos!. And more importantly I not only looked great but I felt beautiful and glamorous thanks to Grace! I believe this feeling resonated throughout the shoot.
Then the picture taking starts. There is no need to prep because Erik will guide you throughout the entire process. In every single set of photos taken there are at least a handful of unbelievable moments captured. Erik’s work is unparalleled in this genre of photography. Have you checked out the website and the picture gallery? He uses several techniques throughout the shoot to bring out the best in his clients. Erik is the consummate professional with a keen sense of capturing the elegance of beauty in his work and an expert in the artistic expression of female sensuality. (I am now addicted to being photographed in my lingerie! LOL After my evening with the Patton Boudoir team I don’t think I fell asleep until the wee hours of the morning because I felt so exhilarated from the entire experience.)
In no time my proofs were ready for viewing. My schedule can be kind of hectic and Miss Lorna was so accommodating when booking my viewing. Surprisingly this was the second time during the process that I was a little nervous and unsure of what to expect but once again I had no reason to be. When we started to go through the pictures all I could think of and eventually blurted out was the following “Wow! Gorgeous! Unbelievable! Is that me? I love that pic too! More Wow!!” Needless to say I was very pleased with the final work product. I have chosen an 8×10 which I will frame and display and then I also ordered a photo album with photos I absolutely loooooove!!!
The team under Erik’s vision and direction provides unique expertise which contributes directly in delivering a professional, high-quality final work product. And they also provide something extra, a sense of celebrating the individual … in my case, a sense of celebrating me.
It has been an honor to work with such a professional and exceptional team. Overall this was a wonderful experience and I am so glad that Erik Patton Photography was a big part of my birthday!!”
