Category Archives: Boudoir on Tour

As my boudoir photography has become more and more popular — in both Portland, Oregon and the rest of the United States — I have been approached by women in other parts of the world … Because they are unable to come to Portland to do a photo session with me, I have been taking my photo studio to them. Since summer 2014, Bunn’s Boudoir on Tour has traveled to many parts of the world, sharing the excitement of professional boudoir photography through day-long photography marathons. On the schedule in 2015-2016 are Houston, San Diego, Seattle, New York City, Oahu, and Savannah, with many more to be announced!

The Weather Gods Rain on My Photo Shoots

This is an actual fact.

At first, it was kinda funny… until it wasn’t. A lot of people thought I was just joking… until they realized that I wasn’t. The fact is the weather gods do not like me and always rain on my photo shoots. Did you book an outdoor photo shoot with me? Sorry, but it might rain. Bring an umbrella.

For this particular photo shoot, I had planned it for weeks and weeks prior to flying out to Los Angeles to shoot. My friend Renée tagged along even though she was just there a fews weeks prior for her own photo shoot. She said on the day of her photo shoot in January it was such a beautiful and sunny day as it is on any given day in Southern California. And according to Tony! Toni! Toné!, it never rains there. Until I came along.

It was raining and high winds of 60 mph, breaking rooftops off homes here and there. It was insane!

As we were getting everything ready, plus hair and makeup by Hikari Murakami, we watched news about the chaos that swept the city within minutes. No warning. I drove out to our shoot location on the beach to see if we could still make it work; checked a bike shop about renting a vintage bike for props. It wasn’t going to work, there was just no way we could safely shoot there.

So we headed away from the crazy weather… to Mission San Juan Capistrano. But, they wouldn’t let us shoot inside. Seriously!?

Time was ticking and the weather was barely holding up. What do I do now?! We traveled all this way to create art, but everything is working against us! So, I decided to drop everything— literally! We put everything down on the sidewalk and just started shooting right along the walls of Mission San Juan Capistrano, with oncoming cars, and we just made it work. These are the images I photographed in this narrow spot in, like, 15 minutes. This is what I mean when I look for SPOTS, not an entire location.

Affordable Boudoir Photography

An iBoudoir Session all started with an idea I had for Instagram in 2012: I shoot a boudoir session entirely on my iPhone— Yep, that’s it! These images are never Photoshopped because I am encouraging all women out there to love yourself without digital plastic surgery. It’s a different experience, but the same style of photography that I am known for. iBoudoir Sessions are an alternative for affordable boudoir photography sessions. You can find more samples of my iBoudoir Sessions on my gallery. //To inquire about my Boudoir Packages & Pricing, please complete the Contact form or call 503-308-8228.

Hawaiian Boudoir Photography by Bunn Salarzon

This collection of boudoir pictures was shot on the gorgeous beaches of Oahu … Boudoir on the Beach is what I hope to do more of whenever I visit the island. However, a boudoir photo shoot is not complete without makeup, so Jein King — a professional hair and makeup artist from Portland, Oregon and who is also a native of Oahu — will make sure that you’re picture-perfect for your closeups on the beach … Who wants to shoot with me on Hawaii?? (Model: Jennifer Brotchie)

Tasteful Boudoir Photography is NOT a Taboo

One of the most commonly asked questions I receive is, “Why don’t you do boudoir photography at The Nines Hotel anymore?” My answer is this: What I do is tasteful and empowering for women, yet most hotels treat it as though it is taboo. I am too grown up to tiptoe around as if I’m ashamed of what I do— I am not. So I’ve basically checked out of using fancy hotels for my boudoir settings. I take great pride in being able to create beautiful boudoir photography that can be shot in my studio or in the comfort of your own home (provided I have adequate light, etc). Who needs room service anyhow?? //Model: Caroline, shot on location in Houston, Texas.

Houston Boudoir Photography Session with Caroline

It’s fun seeing behind-the-scenes images of myself in action creating “hot” boudoir pictures … It was super hot in Houston that day— but, I have no idea why I was the only one sweating!? In hindsight, I think the next time I host my Bunn’s Boudoir on Tour in Houston it will have to be during the springtime when we’re not melting away our makeup. Thanks to Lynda Esparza, celebrity makeup artist extraordinaire, for this Instagram image of me shooting on film across from the Toyota Center where Beyoncé & Jay-Z performed the night before! //To inquire about my Boudoir Packages & Pricing, please complete the Contact form or call 503-308-8228 (PST).
