Hi! We’re the Atlanta boudoir photographer duo Jill Marie and David Scruggs. We own One Soul Boudoir and have an awesome, five-room studio on Marietta Square in downtown Marietta. That’s where we deliver a fulfilling personal experience as we fashion breathtaking intimate photos that celebrate who you are as a woman and what makes you beautiful. It’s all about self-worth.
Because we’re so passionate about everything from fit to plus size boudoir photography, we constantly push ourselves to create arguably the most memorable boudoir experiences and the most cherished private art in greater Atlanta.
All One Soul boudoir sessions share the fundamentals of a personal consultation, professional hair styling and makeup, at least two hours of studio photography, and a wine-and-cheese reveal party and ordering session afterward.
Your own boudoir session will be tailored to your personality and will celebrate your wishes, however glamorous or raw they might be.
We’re as comfortable with creating edgy photos in our Fifty Shades-inspired Red Room as we are at creating classic boudoir photos in our Tuscan-styled Boudoir Suite, our Broadway-toned Dressing Room, our richly appointed Parlor, or on our moody Reveal Room’s leopard-print couch.
If romantic passion and classy elegance resonate, we absolutely adore the dreamy idea of lounging you in satin, graceful as a Rembrandt, in our Boudoir Suite. It’s a timeless vision you’ll never tire of appreciating.
In the example below, our client told us she’d never been complimented about her appearance, that she wasn’t beautiful. We wanted to change that narrative. So we opted for this black and white to draw her attention to her real beauty. See more of our work.
At the other end of the spectrum, there’s nothing more breathtaking than beautifully posed, beautifully lit artistic nude photos. If you want that, but more expressive, we’ll work with you to realize your vision even your own boudoir ideas stray toward kinky photos or erotic photos. Think Agent Provocateur lingerie, that last visit to Atlanta’s iconic Clermont Lounge, or yes, 50 Shades :)
Below, a normally reserved Annalise plays with her alter ego in the Red Room. Read about her entire boudoir experience.
As far as rationale goes, whether you’re a new girlfriend, new fiancée, new bride, new mom, experienced mom, or proud grandma, there’s always a good reason to book a photo shoot.
First, who gets enough affirmation? Second, when’s the last time you did something just for you, just because?
Of course, we understand better than most that everyone has a sudden bonfire of the vanities when a camera appears. It doesn’t matter whether you’ve never darkened the doorway of a gym, practically live at one, or work at one.
No matter how much or how little you work on yourself, we know you have worries about the stuff you just can’t change. We know how to make you look your best. And if you’ll trust us, we also know how to celebrate imperfection quite beautifully.
Bottom line, boudoir will help rid you of negative thoughts about yourself, and that’s something your mental health will feel good about :)
Have a significant other? We’re always down for a couples boudoir session. Same as above, times two. We have the perfect sets here at our Marietta studio, but we’re always open to other options for Atlanta photography!
Finally, there’s one more specialty we’re crazy about: a maternity boudoir session! There’s nothing more beautiful than a bare baby bump.
Regardless of the niche, you can expect that we’ll be delivering the personalized experience of a lifetime (with unique boudoir themes to embellish your day) to boost your self-confidence and bolster your self-esteem. We’ll prove to your harshest critic that you’re the perfect subject for timeless intimate art for your home.
Equally important, we host the ladies-only Facebook community One Soul Women. With more than 3,600 local members and a team of inspiring One Soul Boudoir ambassadors helping us deliver an uplifting message, it’s 100% girl-time and girl-talk. You should join!
Being mostly Greater Atlanta clients and fans who think we’re the best photographers in Atlanta, our members get our message of self-acceptance. What’s more, they love our Facebook Live sessions! Our guest speakers usually are women who’ve overcome obstacles to become success stories in their own right.
One Soul Women isn’t simply a virtual community. We do host online events for our ladies, like Wine Wednesday Zooms, monthly challenges with juicy prizes, and seasonal contests and giveaways. But we also throw real-world holiday parties at Halloween and Christmas/Hanukkah.
And in 2022 we hosted our first annual Leading Ladies’ Soiree for past clients, a masquerade ball in the fourth-floor ballroom and balcony at The Strand theatre on Marietta Square.
In the past, your favorite Atlanta photographer has also hosted real-world ladies-only socials like high tea at Jessa’s Tea Parlor, pole-dancing nights at PoleLa Teaz, pajama parties, and shopping trips to Anna Bella Lingerie and LiviRae Lingerie. We love everything about One Soul Women 🙂
On our own time, we’re devoted to our furry kids, dreaming up dishes in the kitchen, enjoying great wine and pizza, and in safer times, adventuring!
We’ve boated with alligators in the Okefenokee, shot the northern lights in northern Finland, luxuriated in St Lucia, snorkeled in Alaska (it’s a thing!), and lots in between! We even went on a once-in-a-lifetime dining splurge at the Michelin 3-star restaurant Per Se in NYC! So anytime you want ideas for trips, restaurants, recipes or wines, just ask!
