Virginia's Premier Luxury Boudoir Photography Studio
We created Virginia’s Best Luxury Boudoir Studio with the belief that you are beautiful, you are worthy, you are gracious and kind and that you deserve an absolutely incredible experience.
Capturing your spirit and strength, the very essence of YOU, is our aim. In your eyes and in your smile, your unique traits shine through. No longer held captive by society’s standards, you will emerge daring and confident. THIS is a session with Luminous Boudoir.
Conquering your fears and, once again, remembering the woman that you were created to be will forever remain our mission with each and every session.
Are you ready to embrace this freedom and live boldly?
The decision is yours.
“Girls can rival each other, but real women revive each other, girls can impale each other, but real women empower each other. Girls can compare each other, but real women champion each other and we are all made to be ground breakers and peace makers and freedom shakers.”
– A. Voskamp
Meet Your Boudoir Photographers, Jessica & Ross Costanza
Ross Costanza has been a photographer for most of his life. His passion for capturing the things and places around him began in his early 20s while traveling out west through the desert with his band. What began with landscapes evolved to weddings and eventually transitioned naturally to boudoir. Ross brings his love of landscape photography to every boudoir session with a keen eye to framing the environment around his subject so that the image tells a story.
In 2014 his wife Jessica joined him in the business and became the primary stylist and director for all the boudoir shoots at their downtown Norfolk boudoir studio. Jess is the heart behind Luminous Boudoir, your personal hype girl and crown-straightener. She has also been known to get behind the camera for some of their most creative and fun sessions!
When you book a shoot with Luminous Boudoir, you are getting a husband and wife team that understands the power of what a session means to you, as well as creative direction and expert posing and styling. Luminous clients leave with not only beautiful and artistic portraits of themselves, but as family.

The Luminous Boudoir Session Process
(aka how to go from every day to SLAY)
Step Two: Your In-Person Consultation
If you decide on your call that you would love to move forward, we will meet in person at our residential office or via Zoom. We will go over more specific details, document poses you love from our sample albums and create a curated experience just for you!
Step Three: Get Glam
Congrats! You’ve made it to your photoshoot day! You will begin in hair and makeup at our studio with some of Hampton Roads’ BEST artists. You can relax with a tasty beverage in your hand while listening to fun and relaxing music.
Step Four: Your Boudoir Session
It’s session time! We will shoot between approximately three outfits or “looks”. Most of our clients opt for two lingerie looks and something else unique to them, such as in the sheets or nudes. The choice is yours! We will guide you through the posing process from facial expressions to toes.
Step Five: The Reveal
A couple of weeks after your session, you will join us at our home office in Chesapeake to see your photos for the first time! You will get to select and purchase the package of your dreams and choose your customization options for your wall art and albums.
It’s time to love your booty
