I had an incredible experience with SteamFox Photography at the Castle in Bad Durkheim! I rarely ever do photo shoots so I was really nervous going into it, but those feelings immediately went away once we got started. I felt so comfortable and confident the entire time and I really appreciated how much direction/guidance I was given. He was very professional and we had so much fun shooting together, I would do it again in a heartbeat! Also the photos came out amazing and gave me so much more confidence in myself. 11/10 recommend SteamFox Photography!

I highly enjoyed my session with SteamFox Photography. James and Rachel are not only awesome to deal with, but James has such a fantastic eye to make the perfect shot seamlessly. The day we did our pictures, it was FREEZING and it was either raining or snowing the whole time. However, we just rolled with the weather and used it to our advantage. You can see in my pictures that my hair gradually became more and more wet and my makeup was questionable at times 🤪—-but the outfits he suggested I changed into (4 outfits total) had worked so well with what the weather did to my hair/makeup. It’s hard to explain 🤣 but I’m soooo happy with how well they turned out providing those external challenges. James made it fun too—he was great at making me feel comfortable in my skin and showing me the best poses to maximize on time. I am the queen of bad poses and I didn’t have that problem during our session 🤷🏻‍♀️👏🏼 Moreover, the edits are not airbrushed like a lot of others, they show you as you actually look. James takes the best angles and uses lighting to capture your best self and from my experience, does not need to spend a lot of time doing all of that after the session from his computer. Sadly, Very few photographers do this anymore. In a nutshell, book with them now, I can see them getting full very fast. 😰

Such an awesome duo, very professional and easy to collaborate with. Amazing work- can’t wait to shoot again soon!
Miss Hollis

I really enjoyed working with SteamFox Photography! They are both really sweet people and made me feel comfortable. The quality of the photos is amazing! I really loved how I got to see previews before the photos were sent to me because most photographers that I know would never do that!

James contacted me on Instagram to go on a shoot of my choice: fashion, fitness, boudoir. We chose an outdoor ‘fashion’ shoot in seaport, Boston. First off, his camera quality is amazing - but his experience and skill is what truly made all of the shots come out so nicely. He listened to my opinions while also recommending shots that he thought would suit me best. I highly recommend a photoshoot with James!
Miss Melanie

I had an awesome time doing my shoot and the pictures came out so good. I felt a little bit nervous as I had never done a photo shoot before, let alone a boudoir shoot. James made me feel super at ease, he introduced himself and how his company got it's start before we even started shooting, which eased my nerves a lot. I was also able to bring my sister along with me which was super fun and made it more comfortable. Which let's you get the best shots! James helped with outfit choices and different pose ideas which took the pressure off me and I was able to just have fun! We also jammed out to some music while shooting which made it easier and less awkward to pose.
Miss Amy

I cannot send enough praises to James Carton/Steam Fox Photography. James shot my online catalog with 9 models. When I received my images back my mouth dropped. They were beautiful, clean and professional. He has an affinity for detail and did exactly what I needed. He captured all of the details in my clothing perfectly. My sales have even increased due to this shoot. He is professional, efficient and a joy to work with. We had a great time on set and he even got my edits back quickly. HUGE FAN! I will definitely continue to use Steam Fox Photography!
Dani Tado

I had the pleasure of working with SteamFox Photography for a fitness shoot and fashion shoot. They were extremely pleasant! They made me feel comfortable especially when I was nervous. They were very positive and encouraging. James is a fanatic photographer and easily captures raw beauty. I enjoyed working with them and hope I have the chance to work with them again in the future!

I had always been curious about doing a boudoir shoot. When I finally did it, I fell in love with everything about it! It brought a whole new level of confidence and feeling of sexy to my life! I had the best time doing my shoot with Rachel. She made the experience fun and extremely comfortable. The photos came out way better than I could have ever imagined. I can't wait to do another one!
Miss Heidi

This was my third time shooting with SteamFox and we had an awesome shoot! We went to Denver photo collective, which was the cutest studio to shoot at! They had made a post on Instagram of a prior shoot they had done there and I LOVED the photos. We went during the afternoon and the photos had awesome lighting. It’s awesome to me that they are down to shoot wherever, and are so adaptable to whatever setting you choose. For each shoot I’ve done, we’ve done it at different locations and different times of day and my photos have all turned out amazing! I always feel so comfortable shooting with them and they are open to whatever you want to try but also give great direction and help you get into cute poses that turn into amazing photos. Doing boudoir has become one of my favorite things to do to celebrate my body and confidence. I LOVE getting my photos back and am constantly thumbing through them. I will definitely do some more shoots in the future.
Miss Amy

It was a pleasure to shoot with SteamFox photography. There were multiple set ups within house where we shot which is usually not the case for indoor shoots. I was allowed to set the pace so I was comfortable the whole shoot. By doing that it made it that much easier to feel at ease. He got some amazing angles and took beautiful pictures that I used in my portfolio. Highly recommend if you want beautiful boudoir photos that you feel comfortable taking.

I had a great experience shooting with SteamFox! Very professional and fun to work with! I highly recommend them if you are looking for a great experience too.
Mrs. Theresa

I had an absolute blast during my shoot. I felt very comfortable and clicked instantly with my photographer (James). What made my experience even better was that I could bring two of my best friends with me to make me laugh and feel amazing. Not to mention the photos came out gorgeous and every smile and moment captured was genuinely me. My husband LOVED the final product and it was the perfect surprise for him.
Mrs. Sara

Working with James, was a very pleasant experience. This was my first time shooting pictures of this "genre" and I was very nervous. He let me do whatever I was comfortable with and gave me some tips and recommendations that I was given the option to go along with or not. I had a very fun time shooting even though it was a very, very cold day! I would highly recommend his services. The quick and speedy replies and the flexibility he offers makes the process all the better!
Miss MiKayla

Currently, I’m a model for NXT Denver and have been in the industry for five years. I had a great experience with Steamfox photography. He was very professional and easy to work with. I got the images back in a timely manner and loved the editing. Would recommend to anyone looking to do a fashion or boudoir shoot.azing photos during my session-I have so many favorites!! My husband and I will treasure these photos forever!
Miss Tori


Reviews from clients with sessions in Colorado Springs

Shooting with James was very professional and fun! He was organized, on time, and had very good ideas of what he wanted. We hiked up a snowy cold mountain, and made stops along the way to get some beautiful shots. James made me feel comfortable, and was very respectful while I did some wardrobe changes. He made sure I was okay with some of his ideas, and wasn't pushy if I didn't want to do any of them. Although I froze my butt off, and lost a shoe, I would most definitely do another shoot with SteamFox Photography! A big thanks to James for capturing great photos of me!
Miss Madysen

I had an interest in taking boudoir shots for my husband but it was something I never thought I would actually do. A friend told me of her great experience with Steamfox, so I decided to reach out! James answered all of my crazy questions so we set a date to shoot at Fox Run Park. I was so nervous at first but James made me feel comfortable and confident. We got some amazing photos during my session-I have so many favorites!! My husband and I will treasure these photos forever!

Reviews from clients with sessions in Sacramento + San Diego

I had a blast collaborating with Steam Fox Photography. I learned so many new things and explored new places. Not only was the shoot enjoyable but the photos surpassed my expectations on so many levels. I was given numerous edits, more than I can count. They were all professionally edited and the access to the albums were very easily accessible. I highly recommend Steam Fox Photography and I will definitely work with them in the future!
Heather Monique

This is an experience I will never forget. I'm really glad I convinced myself to do this! These two photographers are some of the most down to earth people I've ever met. My car broke down before the shoot and they came to my rescue! We got comfortable with each other super fast because of that experience. Their skills and advice made me feel So comfortable and confident, they made me feel beautiful. I don't have the perfect body but the pictures I got back made me see myself in a different way. I'm so grateful for them and all their hard work! They are super accommodating, kind and very skilled. Highly recommend, especially if it's your first time doing something a little scary like boudoir photos.
Mrs. Brittany

I loved my shoot with SteamFox! James is an incredible photographer and we had a fun time collaborating when he was in the Sacramento area. He was very personable, made me feel comfortable, and helped with direction, which made the shoot more enjoyable. This was my first shoot in years and it felt like I never stopped! The photos turned out amazing and couldn’t have been happier with the finished product! I would highly recommend SteamFox Photography and would love shoot again in the future
Miss Jessica


Reviews from clients with sessions in Boston

My shoot with SteamFox Photography was nothing short of incredible. To be honest at first I didn’t know how I was going to look with minimal clothes on, but holy cow does this duo make it extremely easy and comfortable the entire time. Looking at the photographs now I am so happy that I decided to work with them and hope that other women feel empowered to do so as well! I promise you that you won’t regret it. From planning a day to the execution of the actual shoot it was beyond flawless. I hope to do it again sometime when they come back to the East Coast!
Miss Tay

As someone who is generally uncomfortable in front of the camera, never mind being in various stages of undress, I was nervous about my photoshoot to say the least. However, James made me feel ease right away. Our easy chit-chat throughout the shoot, combined with his clear direction made the whole experience super fun and liberating. I’m so glad I did it and have such beautiful photos as a keepsake!
Miss Caroline


Reviews from clients with sessions in Cincinnati

It was great working with James and Rachel. They're very kind and lovely individuals who made me feel comfortable and at ease from the get go. It was also great to talk shop with them, being a photographer myself. Despite the rainy weather, they were both good sports and I can't wait to shoot with them again when they make their way back to Ohio!
Aly Issabelle

I had thought about having boudoir photos taken for quite some time, but kept putting it off. After having 2 babies, I just wasn’t feeling confident in my skin anymore. The day of my shoot I was excited, but also nervous. Not only was this my first time doing a shoot like this, but I had chosen to do it outside. James and Rachel were great to work with and made me feel so comfortable. James gave me clear direction on what he was looking for with poses and showed me some shots along the way. Seeing some of the photos during my shoot helped my confidence and made me feel beautiful and sexy! James had the edited photos to me very quickly and I couldn’t be happier with them and my husband loved them too. Through doing this shoot, I have found a whole new level of confidence in my body and quite possibly a love for boudoir!
Mrs. Casey

James is an absolute rock star! I had found him by chance via random click because I noticed an amazing photo. Within minutes of looking at his website I knew my search was over. I had to have James as my photographer. I booked him for my fashion portfolio. Another awesome thing is that he gives you all the digital images... this sealed the deal as I could print whichever ones I wanted. I couldn’t have had a better photographer. You are the best James - thank you so much. Definitely my favorite photos & favorite photographer so far. I’m so excited for the two more photoshoots I subsequently booked with him.
Imee Santos

I normally would've never thought to do pictures like this because I'm so uncomfortable with my body after having 2 babies, but after reading all of the reviews I decided to go ahead and do it. I'm glad I did because it made me feel so much better about myself. James made sure I was comfortable with whatever pose he suggested or place in the house we went. He also made it fun and not awkward at all!

Every person is different and every session is different

Ensuring you have a great experience is so important to us because of the nature of these sessions. We know coming in that any type of session you're in front of a camera can be intimidating, especially a boudoir session. Our priority is to create a fun, unique and memorable experience that you will want to do again and again. Beyond that we know how important a referral is when people are looking for a trusted source for a photographer. We know you're more likely to go to someone that a friend recommends over the random photographer you find online.

For this reason we love getting a review from clients we've done sessions with. We always welcome feedback as well if something could be improved on and welcome a friendly message and discussion. It's one thing for us to say things about ourselves but another entirely to have client after client say things about the highlight of the session for them. Everyone and every session is different and what stood out most might be different from person to person. We hope you find something or someone that you connect with and feel comfortable selecting us for your session!
