So, you’ve been wanting to do a couples boudoir photoshoot in (or around) Edmonton for a while now, but you don’t know how to convince your partner to join along. You’ve hinted at it a few times, but still, he’s not biting. You want to know: How do I get my husband / boyfriend / male counterpart to agree to do a boudoir shoot?
As experts in couple’s boudoir photography, we’ve worked with a lot of couples and really gotten to know them. One of our favourite questions to ask is, who initiated coming to the shoot?
Answers vary, and not everyone is always on board right away. We then of course asked, how did your partner convince you to come? Here are the top 6 fun ways to get your guy on board from real-life couples’ own experiences.
- Explain your reasons
- Send him sexy photos of you
- Show him is competition
- Suggest it after an amazing night
- Leverage sexual anticipation
- Bribe him
Explain Your Reasons for wanting a couples boudoir shoot
OK, we realize this may not be the most fun way to convince your partner to get on board 😅 but it is typically the most tried-and-true tested method. And when we say explain your reasons, we mean REALLY explain your reasons.
But before you sit him down, it may help to see if you can first identify why he is hesitating. For example, many men tend to think that photoshoots are boring – think of class pictures – and so don’t see why you want to do one.
Or maybe they are feeling insecure about themselves and their body image. We are all guilty of ogling photoshopped models on social media, etc., and some are more sensitive to how they look when watching our partners do this.
You need to identify possible reasons for hesitation before you dive into why it’s important for you. Then, start explaining.
Maybe you want to do a shoot because…
- it looks fun
- you want to spice things up
- you want to celebrate your intimacy
- you can even tell him all the reasons OTHER couples do boudoir shoots
It can also help to explain that happy relationships are based on seeing your partner’s perspectives and continually being tuned into your partner, emotionally. Let him know that a shoot can help with that AND that since a shoot matters to you, this is an opportunity to show how much he cares.
With any luck, he’ll give it some thought, which brings us to our next way to help get him on board, visual persuasion.

Send Him Sexy Photos of You so he can see what one half of your boudoir pictures would look like
We love this one as a great way to get him to visualize you in sexy photos. Like planting a seed and waiting for it to sprout into him wanting to see the flower. Start small at first, nothing too revealing, just you, looking SEXY.
Then you can start hinting how much SEXIER it would be to have some professional photos done. Many guys have heard of boudoir photoshoots, but many have never heard of doing a COUPLES boudoir photoshoot.
Not sure how to explain to him what a boudoir shoot even IS? Don’t worry, you can always bring him to our site and show him. After all, we’re experts in Edmonton couples boudoir shoots.
Show Him His Competition
This is a great one to try if you can start to see him really considering the SEXY couples boudoir photoshoot you’ve been suggesting. Most of us have a competitive side. Men, in particular, have that same-sex competition even more so.
Start showing him some SENSUAL photos of couples posing for their photoshoot and let the inner competitor in him rise to the surface. Challenge him and see if he thinks the two of you can do better. (To be clear though, we think ALL of our couples are AMAZING and would never pick a favourite).
Suggest It After an AMAZING Date Night in edmonton
There is nothing like having an AMAZING night out with your partner, getting them in the mood for some SEXY time, then getting them in the mood for some MORE future sexy time.
Having date nights with your significant other is important to maintaining a healthy relationship. Reminiscing the next day about how FANTASTIC last night was is a great precursor for more ideas. Cue, suggesting a SPICY couples boudoir photo session.
And if you are someone who struggles to come up with ideas for a unique and EXCITING date night, something to lead the anticipation of suggesting the photoshoot, here are some great ways to spice up your sex life, and dating life.

Leverage Sexual Anticipation
The build-up of sexual anticipation can sometimes be hard to capture once you had relations in the bedroom. Think about it. How often do you just stare into each other’s eyes anymore? Or just make out on the couch for hours?
These SENSUAL activities are often a thing of the past in long-term relationships and become replaced with a knowing look.
Having a photoshoot prolongs any kind of instant gratification and will keep you HOT and heavy for days, even months afterwards.
Imagine having a photoshoot where both of you are dressed to kill, look FANTASTIC, and have to keep your hands (mostly) in check. This is some erotic foreplay at its best. And this is just the first day.
Imagine once you get the photos to take home with you, you’ll be reliving the day OVER and OVER again – can we say MULTIPLE ANTICIPATIONS? – the sexual anticipation building up again each time. Get the picture?
If all the above fails, can we say bribery? Because hey, if it can work on kids, it can certainly work on HIM. Whether you decide to bribe him with a guy’s weekend getaway or let him get to pick the outfit of his PLEASURE, bribery may be the key to unlocking your couple’s boudoir fantasy.
We know how FUN, SEXY, and AMAZING having a couples boudoir photoshoot can be, and we really want to help you convince your partner to have the same DESIRE you have. That is why we are here to explain any uncertainties or questions he may have. Invite him to call, text, or even come in to ask a few questions. We promise, we don’t bite (we know that’s your job).
