Win a Boudoir Session from Boutique Studios

My friends at Boutique Studios have something sexy up their sleeves! Kari Heese and Marcee Lee-Bullen Sloan are the two brains and beauties behind this wedding photography company, but lately they have been pursuing their other passion: boudoir. For the last 4 years, and with the help of their good friends at All Dolled Up Studio, they’ve transformed many women in Vancouver & given them the confidence that they never knew they had… and they’d like to give that same opportunity to 3 lucky Vancity Bride readers!

The Prize

3 winners will win a voucher each for a boudoir shoot with Boutique Studios (each voucher has a $450 value)


  • 1 hour of shooting time at their Yaletown studio
  • Professional hair and makeup by All Dolled Up Studio
  • $100 credit towards portraits; albums & other products are not included in the voucher but may be purchased
  • Voucher expires on December 31, 2013 – photoshoot must be done by December 10, 2013
  • These vouchers are not valid during their Breast Cancer Awareness Boudoir Marathon on October 20/21, 2012.

And the winners are… Jen (jenniferswng), Chelsea and @paradisedotcom!!!

Congratulations ladies! Out of 75 entries (twitter and blog combined) your 3 names have been picked!! I have contacted you all already via email or DM so please check your inbox and spam folder and reply to me within 24 hours to claim your prize, that’s by 8:30 AM Tuesday, October 23rd! If you didn’t win and would still want a shoot with Kari or Marcee, you can contact them thru their website.

Thank you all for participating… there will be another contest next week… I’ll be giving away a prize from Inspirasian Creations! Any guesses what it could be?

The ladies of Boutique Studios are also raising money for Breast Cancer Awareness. The shoots will take place on October 20 and 21, 2012 at their Vancouver studio – the cost is $350, and $50 will be donated to Breast Cancer Awareness programs. The prize vouchers I’m giving away are not valid during this marathon but if you want to get some sexy photos taken and contribute to a great cause, this is one way to do it!

So who’s ready to bare it all? Or most of it… whatever you feel comfortable with ;) I guarantee your partner will be pleasantly surprised! Remember, boudoir is for all women, in all shapes and sizes! No judgement, just beauty :) If you want to see more of Kari and Marcee’s boudoir portfolio, head over to their website, follow them on Twitter, and be a fan on Facebook!

    I have dreamed about doing a boudoir shoot for years now… not only for my love but for myself. Who wouldn’t want to get all dressed up looking our best and have photos to remind ourselves of how hot we can be. I’d for sure have to sneak the man’s favorite dress shirt out of his closet and go buy a pair of sexy panties to match for some of the photos. I think he would love to see me like that!
