I’m Matt Christie and as your boudoir photographer I’ll be drawing on the nine years of experience and technical know-how that’s gained me 12 magazine covers and over 30 spreads. I will use this to create stunning photos of you that capture your unique style, beauty and spirit – whether you want your boudoir photography to show burlesque glamour, artistic nude or you just want to look sexy and elegant in lingerie. Whatever your preference, we will work together to make sure the results are beautiful, classy and capture the side of your personality that you want to reveal.
After seeing how amazing you look with the highest quality lighting, angles, posing and make-up that only a team of highly experienced professionals can give you, you’ll leave the studio with a new-found confidence.
So if you’re looking for stylish, beautiful, magazine quality boudoir photography, read on….
Every one of the photos above is from a genuine boudoir shoot. This is how people look when photographed with excellent lighting and compositional skills, by someone who takes the time to help them relax and bring out their personality.

Is Boudoir For Me?
But I’m not the right Age/Size/Shape to be a model!
This experience allowed me to see myself at my best and feel it! Personal experiences had meant before my boudoir photography session I didn’t feel very confident or womanly. Thanks to Matt and my beautiful photos I can always reflect back and see what I have that makes me a beautiful woman in my own right.
But I’m Nervous!
Everyone is to begin with. It’s entirely natural and a great sign that you’re excited about your boudoir shoot. When you arrive, we’ll have a cup of tea and go over the plan, then you’ll have an hour or so being pampered by one of my amazing make-up artists, who are all as lovely as they are talented. I’ll be chatting away to you throughout, as the more comfortable you are with me, the more relaxed you’ll be for the photos.
I approached Matt Christie, not thinking for a minute he’d have time to fit me in to a London visit not a week in advance. When he did however, I was glad of the short time- I had only a few days to be sick with nerves and panic that I hadn’t packed enough stockings (I only took 8 pairs to the shoot *eyeroll*). He’s someone I’d met very briefly at parties and has photographed some of my friends and colleagues but I hadn’t had the courage to approach him. Despite his insistance on his love of portfolio photography (what I wanted), I felt I wasn’t the page 3 or glamour style he usually shoots, and that he’d laugh at me or something. How wrong I was!
Matt is the most incredible professional. He took SIMPLY AGES making me feel comfortable and relaxed; an unimaginable state to me considering my reservations. He chatted with me so much and did the actual photography so effortlessly that I thought he had taken maybe 50 or 75 pictures, tops. Post shoot, he mailed me over 200 photos to chose from, and although there is a lot of tension in my face in many of them, especially early shots, I am thrilled with them all.
I simply cannot recommend him enough, and will be returning to him when I need new pictures: I won’t leave it over two years from sheer horror this time! I found his studio to be very comfortable and suitable for my look, and everything about him exactly to my liking, pre, during and post shoot. It’s not easy to photograph extremely nervous models who hate having their picture taken. Matt’s work is of the highest standard and I couldn’t have asked for anything more.
Can I Pose With My Partner?
Of course you can! I have a dedicated boudoir couples page, which you can see here
But I’m Not Photogenic!
What About Retouching?
Thank you so much Matt for capturing me on the inside and not just the outside! Xxx
