Experience the transformative power
of boudoir photography.

Hi, I’m Michele Mateus, your ally in this empowering exploration
of self. My approach is all about celebrating you — your body, your journey, your strength, your beauty, as defined by you.

I’m not just a boudoir photographer; I’m a facilitator of radical self-love, here to help you embrace yourself as you are, with a sprinkle of sass and badassery.

Together we will reject the narrow confines of conventional beauty standards, to capture your raw and unfiltered self. This process will be about self discovery, leaving you with art as unique as you are, honouring every part of you.

Join the movement of women taking steps towards radical self love, feeling free in their bodies, and being unapologetic af about it!

Welcome to artistry over conformity, my Friend.

GET Ready to flirt,

Your Vancouver boudoir photoshoot will be a carefully crafted experience from the moment you decide
to book to the thrilling reveal of your images.

Come and explore your sensuality, without shame, judgement or the need to fit into a box.
Together we will celebrate your individuality, creating art that fosters a profound sense of self-love and acceptance.

Here’s what you Need to know

Mateus Studios is an inclusive Vancouver Boudoir Studio, offering personalized photoshoots for
women and non-binary folks, ages 19+, with any body shape, size, colour, disabilities and backgrounds.

Here’s what you need to know:

My Boudoir Signature Experience starts at $1900 and includes: a style consultation, 2 hour photoshoot, 3-4 looks, professional hair and makeup artistry, reveal and ordering appointment, both digital and prints of images you choose to purchase.

A $500 non-refundable deposit is required to secure your date on my calendar.

We only take 4 bookings a month and are unable to hold a date for you without this deposit. Final Payment is due a week before your photoshoot so that we can create with intention. You can also choose to upgrade your collection at your reveal and ordering appointment.

Invoices can be paid online using Visa or Mastercard as well as by sending an e-transfer. This deposit will be put towards your chosen boudoir collection.

I only accept 4 clients a month, and hold Boudoir and Portrait photoshoots on either Wednesday, Thursday or Friday. All Boudoir and Portrait photoshoots start at 10am and wrap up by 2pm.

My approach to boudoir is to create minimalist portraits that have an elevated chic vibe! It’s my goal to create iconic images for you that are modern and timeless.

I will help you plan what to wear at your Style Consultation which will take place once you reserve your photoshoot date. I will also be sending you a prep-guide and several emails to help you with wardrobe ideas.

YES! All of my collections come with both digital and printed artwork which vary depending on the collection you choose.

Yes! My retouching philosophy is to retouch you so that you still look like yourself, with a good sleep!
I will remove anything that is not meant to be there (zits, burns, bug bites etc…) I do not believe in altering people’s bodies.

I believe in consent, and will only share your photos with your permission.

We have a $200 reschedule fee that we charge if you need to reschedule your photoshoot. Medical reasons will be considered on a case by case situation. Please note that we do not offer refunds on deposits that are required to secure a date on my calendar.
