30 – Greece awesomeness and next year’s destination location announcement

Finally on blog number 30!

In Feb or so I set out to do 30 days of consecutive-ish blogging. Whoops! I’m not gonna lie…. kinda cracking up at myself that it took almost a year to get to 30 posts. When I set out on this journey of change and re-branding I don’t think I really knew how freaking bananas it would be. I have never, ever worked so hard in my life, and for like two years straight now. Although, I will say that the change has been rewarding, and I have never been so proud of the art I create. This business just feels like an extension of who I am and what I love. For example, this post is all about travel, photography and new friends. My heart is full!!!

It’s doesn’t feel like a coincidence that we are celebrating our 30th post with the re-cap of our Greece trip. AND the launch of our next trip!! My heart is soaring at the memory of our Greece days with wonderful ladies. And the next adventure that awaits.

My goodness Greece was an incredible two weeks for us. We drove all around Mykonos and got to know it like the back of our hand. I think we did a pretty cool job of finding all the hidden gems of locations to shoot at. We drove down dirt roads that looked forbidden, asked locals where to shoot, drove behind slow cattle, swerved and curved on one lane roads, got bit by horses, warned about snakes, learned that yes a shitty rental car can drive up a hill so steep that I would have guessed a quad roll backwards, and acted like Pinterest photo detectives to make sure all our ladies got the very best locations.  Check out all the fun we had there and scroll to the very, very bottom to hear about the new trip that involves both photographers AND clients….



Aren’t these gals just the coolest!? You can just see that they are “Adventuresses” of their own right. I will be forever grateful that I was able to photograph them on now one of the most meaningful places in my heart and mind. And I have to thank Ashley and Lindsey who played a huge role in making all this happen. And Megan who stayed home and kept up the fort!

Are you ready to hear about the BIG news of our May 2018 trip? That clients (we are calling them models) AND photographers are invited?!!! Click here to see out next “Adventuress Photo Expedition!”

If you are new to us, MARISSA-INC, The Boudoir Divas, and found yourself here randomly, well let me introduce myself. My name is Marissa Boucher. I am one of the owners of The Boudoir Divas. The duo that had one of the crazy, biggest boudoir photography studios ever called “The Boudoir Divas” in San Diego. We have photographed over 4000 awesome women at our studio. We recently scaled back to a smaller, more boho, less ultra glam boudoir studio by the beach. In the past 10+ years we have also taught many other photographers about boudoir with our workshops. Some the workshops in other countries (so cool!). And we have alternated boudoir photography workshops with destination portrait photo shoots since 2008. This year I want to bring you all both!! Gah, check out my idea here.
