READ WHAT PREVIOUS CLIENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT THEIR BOUDOIR EXPERIENCE AND THEIR PHOTOS!
*Loved loved loved working with Marlene. She is amazing at what she does! I was over the moon when I seen my pictures and my boyfriend adores his album!~ Abigail
*I was super nervous before my photoshoot, but Marlene was amazing! It didn't take long before I was completely comfortable with her. It was an incredible experience to say the least and very impowering to give my husband such an intimate Christmas gift. He absolutely LOVED! my album and wished there was more pictures in it. I opted for a 10 picture album cause I didn't think I'd like the pictures all that much as I had never before liked any picture of myself. Turns out I had 26 favourites before they were even edited! The only thing I would do differently is order a bigger album and that I had done this sooner. You don't need a perfect body this experience is for everyone I highly recommend reveal boudoir and painted light photography. Truly Amazing and worth every penny! ~Nikki
*I just gave my husband the album that Marlene put together for me! He LOVED it! The entire experience was amazing. Marlene made me feel so comfortable and beautiful the entire session. And I was amazed at how great I looked in the photos. I didn't know I could look and feel that beautiful and sexy. I think it was Andrea that did my makeup and hair and she did an amazing job! I don't wear a lot of makeup, and she made me look quite natural and sexy. This was my first boudoir session, but I don't think it will be my last - my husband would love to see more! Thank you so much Marlene!! ~ Tricia
*I just met with Marlene tonight to go over my photos and Iwas literally blown away! I have always wanted to do a Boudoir shoot but didn't think I would ever have the confidence. She made me feel beautiful and so comfortable, it is an experience I will never forget. And Andrea did my hair and make-up exactly how I would have imagined!! If I could give extra stars I would. I Recommend her to anyone, if you are even thinking about doing a shoot, do it!! You won't regret it!! Thank you so much!!!! ~ Laura
*I had the most amazing experience at my boudoir shoot! Marlene was so awesome to work with. She made me feel comfortable and and was so good at direction for poses. She made me feel beautiful and is so creative! I would absolutely recommend her to anyone! ~ Kim
*Just wanted to say thank you, again, for a wonderful evening. I don't know how else to describe it other than 'enlightening'. You truly are wonderful at what you do, and you made me feel incredibly comfortable AND beautiful. I really cannot thank you enough :) ~ "J"
*You made me feel unbelievably comfortable and pretty! Thank you so much for everything and I cannot wait to see the results!! I hope your boys are lucky enough to find someone like their mum! They are lucky, as am I for getting the opportunity to meet you and be able to share and take part in your passion for photography, your sense of humor, and you’re wonderful personality! ~ “N”
*The pictures are beautiful! You are such a fabulous and talented photographer. And the make up was amazing! Thank you for helping a tired mom see her beauty!! I can’t thank you enough! Can’t wait to see the rest ;) ~ “J”
*Thank you again for such fabulous, professional work. It definitely was one of my best experiences! ~ “J”
*I originally booked my session with Painted Light Photography as a gift for my fiancé. However, in reality Boudoir Photography was a way for me to celebrate who I am TODAY. I wanted to force myself to let go of the image insecurities that all of us as women impose on ourselves and for just a moment say “This is who I am and I’m okay with it!”. I went into my session feeling a little cautious and more than a little nervous. Marlene’s professional manner, relaxed attitude, easy laughter and total indifference to the fact that I was practically nude made me feel at ease immediately. With her keen eye for posture, position and light she ensures that the only image you see is the best possible version of you. As I walked out of Marlene’s studio I truly did feel CONFIDANT, BEAUTIFUL, STRONG, and AT TOTAL EASE WITH MYSELF. Whenever I need a pick me-up I pull out my book as a reminder that I am all of those things.” Miss J
*Marlene, I literally do not know how to thank you. They look amazing, and you made me feel beautiful! I cannot wait to give the album to my fiance. He’s going to be shocked and I hope he loves the photos as much as I do. Everything just looks wonderful, I dont even have words! :) ~ “N”
*Marlene! I was away this weekend and it was like Christmas getting this email today! Thank you soooo much! I am extremely happy with the results! It made for some tough choices… Thank you for your great work! ~ “S”
*What can I say…I love the pictures… Remember how I told you that I have never had a picture of myself that I liked? Well now I do. They are so intensely personal…I can even see the imperfections and embrace them now. What started out as a gift for someone has now become a gift to myself and such a freeing experience. I will definitely want to order a book and likely more. I especially love the first pictures we did lying on the bed in the sheets…they capture exactly how he makes me feel…relaxed, safe, beautiful, completely at ease. ~ “J”
*OMG Marlene !!!!!!!, Just saw the pictures, you made me so beautiful, I am in awe of how amazing the pictures are. I cannot wait to see the rest of them, Thank you sooooooo much !!!!. . . ~ M.F.
*Hey Marlene! So, I went home last night, and looked at the pictures. I am in LOVE with them. You did such an amazing job. I don’t know how I am going to be able to narrow it down… haha. I can’t thank you enough for doing these photos for me. It’s one of those things that I did for myself, and it’s definitely a turning point/milestone in my life, and I have you to thank for capturing it for me. I look at where I was 8 years ago, how unhappy I was and with little confidence in myself, and then I look at those pictures, and that is all changed now. I am probably the happiest I have been in my life, and I know who I am now… I know what I want, and the pictures just took it one step further to give me that last bit of confidence I needed… Life is quite the journey, and I think I have started a new chapter!! Thanks again Marlene… I can’t stop telling people about how wonderful of a job you did… Y.V.

You made it so easy Marlene~ I appreciate that a lot!
