Boudoir by Opie – Swimsuit Edition

One of Utah’s best known boudoir photographers, Opie Foto, invited me to work with her in expanding her studio shooting and lingerie style into the beauty of an outdoor studio and swimsuit fashion.

Our shoot took place Utah’s Great Salt Lake where we had a variety of natural beauty to work with from sand, lake views, lava rock and cattails. It was a great location to begin Opie’s swimsuit edition photography for 2014!

I enjoy working with Opie Foto (real name Chauntelle) for her ease of comfort, reliability and soft retouching style. She knows how to make a model feel welcome and sexy all while capturing a natural and elegant look.

As a model I am very outgoing and always looking to create a better shot each time and utilize my surroundings. I love unique photography angles, locations and frames. So naturally when it came to shooting near the cattails at the Great Salt Lake, I wanted to be in the cattails with the photography angle looking through them. We landed some money shots in those cattails (see below), just before a GIANT black snake slithered across my feet as I kneeled helplessly in his bed of camouflage grasses and foliage.

Chauntelle laughed and remarked, “I cannot believe you didn’t scream!” Well, I guess that’s just me. Most of God’s creatures don’t make me fearful or jittery. I respect them and I try to be cautious when overstepping my boundaries onto theirs.

If you, your wife, significant other or a model you know is interested in shooting beautiful artwork with this Utah photographer, please suggest: Boudoir by Opie.
