"This was such an amazing experience- I wanted to give my groom a gift he would remember so i contacted Annika early on... she books up quick, and now i know why! I was SO nervous before my shoot, but she took every step to make sure I was comfortable and confident during my shoot- from making me a personalized Pinterest board to discuss my looks, to having hair and makeup come in and make me feel beautiful the day of! It was really an awesome experience and it was empowering! I just received my photos and could not be more pleased with the results. I can't wait to see the look on my groom's face when he opens them!!! If you're considering doing this for a gift, or just for yourself- do not hesitate, you won't regret it!!!"
"To start, I just want to say how much I researched local boudoir photographers, and I kept coming back to Ma Cherie. Annika's website was by far the most professional, her portfolio the best, AND more importantly, her attitude in regards to empowering women. From the minute you reach out to her she explains in depth the entire process and makes a customized Pinterest board for you after she asks you a bunch of questions to get to know your style and what you're looking for in the shoot. If you're undecided about whether to do the full or the petite session, DO THE FULL!! The makeup was the best I've ever had done and it was nice to be able to relax and chat beforehand with a glass of champagne to calm my nerves. When I originally planned on doing the shoot I signed up for the petite and I'm so glad that I changed my mind. Having the option of changing into a bunch more outfits was great- I couldn't make up my mind! No worries though because I brought everything and Annika helped me figure out which would be best. I can't even begin to explain how comfortable she made me feel during the shoot. It was not a big deal at all and she demonstrated all of the positions for me to pose in and the expressions to make. I left there feeling so incredibly confident and even more so after seeing the final pictures. She truly does an amazing job! Today I met with her to pick out the final pictures I want in my album and it was so professional! She's also very flexible with trying to meet you somewhere that's convenient for you. I could go on and on with such good things to say about Ma Cherie Studios, and I can't wait to see my husbands face when he opens that album!! Seriously stop researching and just do it, I promise it will be worth every single penny."
Everything was MORE than expected!!!!! Holy crap. It was the most amazing gift and he FREAKED OUT! He LOVED LOVED LOVED the ones with the jersey. I can't even explain his reaction. I wish I videoed it so I could watch it over and over. It was so special and something we will cherish forever!
