    Fabiana and Carlo Nicora AKA Faby and Carlo

    London Boudoir Photography

    At Faby and Carlo London Boudoir Photography we believe boudoir photography is all about YOU. We love to capture the essence of a person, their beauty and their personality through our images. We believe that photographs are both emotional and visual memories…something we love to create and something that gives us great pleasure!
    With us, a London Boudoir Photography experience whether you choose to be clothed, in lingerie or nude is a beauty portrait that not only will you love and cherish; but will boost your confidence and show how beautiful you are.
    From that initial phone call to final photo finish, with Faby & Carlo the entire process is called “The Boudoir Photography Experience”, or just “The Experience” because for us it is much, much more than a photo shoot. It is an experience you will enjoy and won’t forget.

    Fabiana and Carlo AKA Faby&Carlo

    We are Faby & Carlo, real life husband and wife and partners in photography. We have known each other for a very long time (more that all the fingers on two hands!). We first met a long time ago, and it was love at first sight. We got together in 2000 and before long we realised that not only did we share love for each other but also a love for photography. Passionate and creative Italian souls, although we take our photography very seriously, we do also have a sense of humour that ensures we don’t take ourselves too seriously!
    We love boudoir photography and we love photographing the female form in all in its shapes and sizes, to us we embrace the beauty each and every woman has and we hope this comes across to you in our images.

    Faby

    Faby is 40.
    She is a woman, an idealist, a photographer and a mum. She loves food. She is not is a cook, but she is learning.
    Creative and messy, loves challenges and is bit stubborn (it runs in the family!).
    Loves lasagna, cheese and coffee. Gave up cigarettes many years ago and never looked back.
    Always battling with he curly hair and with the mirror, she decided that she wants to give women their confidence back. With her pictures and much much more.

    Carlo

    Carlo is a geek with a gentle soul.
    Decisive and opinionated, he balances his strength as a leader with his almost feminine sensitivity.
    He loves computer, coffee and definitively challenges.
    He is doer. He organises Faby and her mess.
    He always battles with his hair and does not want to sleep. Ever.
    Carlo is able to capture in his pictures people’s souls and their stories like nobody else.

    for every woman you are
    the serious, the passionate, the private, the sexy
    we know you are nervous
    maybe you are thinking “I must be crazy”, but here you are
    and it is exciting

    • I openly admitted that I was extremely nervous about doing the boudoir shoot, always being one to shy away from the camera and never wishing to be in front of it. This was a personal journey for me, but I didn't feel intimidated, Carlo and Faby made it so much fun and personal. It truly was an amazing experience. Thank you!!

      Melanie· Bermuda
    • My photoshoot with Faby and Carlo was fabulous and an amazing experience. They are truly talented photographers who made me feel completely at ease. It is obvious that photography is their passion and it shows in their photos. I can't recommend them enough.

      Jenna· London
    • Just a quick note to say thank you so much for yesterday evening. I had a great evening with lovely food, wine, company and best of all - beautiful images! I couldn't sleep last night for thinking about the images. I was like an excited child on Christmas Eve.

      Emma· London
    • These are some amazing shots and I am very jealous of your talent! Wow! What is "brilliant" in Italian?!! I have always been overly critical of my appearance over the years, however you've made me look great and have given my husband and myself something to really look back on when we're old and grey!

      Lindsay· Cambridge
    • ...it became a valuable experience for me. I'll look back and remember how I felt when I was with my first baby. It's been very hectic throughout my pregnancy so it was nice to be able to focus on who I am and how I am. Thank you. I am very careful when I choose photographers as I think the images with style & class make such a difference – and I wasn't wrong. You are truly fantastic photographers. Not only photography but your professional attitude with ability to make clients relax and enjoy the sessions is remarkable. And I think you are genuinely lovely people...!!!

      Shoko· London
    • You guys definitely have a talent in the way you frame the shots and working together, hats off to you both. PS: Will try to remember to have confidence for the camera on Saturday during the wedding Fabiana!

      Marisa· London
    • Hi Carlo, Fabiana, Thank You Very Much for the great Experience - I really love the pictures and had a great time!

      Kathrin· Germany
    • Our beautiful package arrived. The photos look amazing! We really enjoyed meeting you both and have been honored to be a part of something so special. It was such an unbelievable experience-words can't even describe. Thank you again for everything! Stay in touch:)

      Kerry and John· USA
    • Seriously, you blew my mind with them. I never ever thought that I could have photos taken of myself in lingerie and actually find them beautiful. Find me beautiful. It will do wonders for my self confidence and you have given me such a gift with these photos. Thank you so much!

      Michaela· London

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Boudoir (But Were Afraid to Ask)

    What is Boudoir Photography for Faby and Carlo and why we think we are different

    Boudoir Photography is a confidence building experience. It is looking at yourself and seeing the beautiful woman we see. The photographs are the crowning of an invigorating, bespoke and personal experience that will give you more than images. We are different because we place the idea that you are the most important person in the world!

    Can I have a female only photographer?

    Yes, absolutely. Whilst we believe that having both Faby and Carlo gives you the best of both worlds in terms of expertise, we totally appreciate and respect your request of having exclusively a female photographer with you.
    Faby will be more than happy to be your only photographer whilst Carlo will still take care of other aspects of your Experience.

    Do I need to get naked?

    Of course you do not have to. It is entirely and only your choice.
    Please remember that whatever is your initial answer, you can always change your mind during the photo shoot.
    We suggest you to keep an open mind and see how you feel during the session.
    Just consider the possibility you may regret not having done it after seeing your pictures.

    What is your policy on Privacy?

    Discretion is our most treasured ethical value. Your photos will be never used or showed on our website unless you expressly ask us to be featured on our website. 110% privacy guaranteed.

    How much in advance do I have to book?

    Ideally a Boudoir Experience should book after 2 weeks from the first contact. This leaves enough time to prepare, live and enjoy your experience at its fullest.
    “Life is like a good glass of wine to be tasted, sipped slowly and making the most out of its unique aroma” Carlo Nicora.

    Why should I book today if my wedding is in 3 months?

    The Boudoir Experience we offer can take a couple of exciting weeks or more in which we will take care of every single detail for you.
    At London Boudoir we do not do quick shoots because you are not a set slot in our calendar.
    We believe in evenings with friends more than business meetings and this is our very personal and personable way to offer excellence.

    I am not a model and I do not know how to pose

    We are experts in photographing women of all ages and sizes and we will guide you through every step of the way.
    A good photo needs to capture the real you in the most flattering way, and this is our job.
    Your job is to enjoy and trust that you are never going to look at yourself in the same way again.
    Posing is not the only component to make a good picture. A mixture of connection, being at ease, real emotions and knowing the most flattering angles certainly can do magic.

    When will be my photos ready? Viewing session

    After about a week from your photo session, we will invite you to watch a presentation slideshow with a selection of 25-35 photos completely retouched and talk about products and options.

    What is your retouching policy?

    We are absolutely convinced that confidence is all you need to look beautiful because your beauty shines from the inside out. Beautiful make-up, hair and garments are important aspects as well for making you feel good.
    Nowadays you can change almost anything in Photoshop, however post-production is for us as salt and pepper. It can add intensity, but we do not want to make the dish something else.
    That said, all the pictures you will be shown in your viewing session are carefully retouched to the highest standard by always taking absolute care of maintaining your authenticity.
    It is our artistic choice to show only and solely the end result.

    Where can I be photographed?

    You can have the choice of the familiarity of your own home, a beautiful non descriptive residential studio, any of the many great hotels in London (at an extra charge for the hotel room) or wherever you want us to fly to.
    The possibilities are endless.

    I am pregnant. When is the right time to be photographed?

    Every woman and every pregnancy are very different, so there is no set time.
    The best solution is having the session when your belly overcomes the line of your breast, so that your bump is going to be visible, and possibly no later than your 37th week.

    Can I wear swimwear instead of lingerie for my boudoir experience?

    Yes, absolutely. Whatever makes you feel comfortable is the right choice.
    Being sensual is a state of mind. What you wear – or you don’t – is a minor detail.

    What can’t you do for me?

    Sorry! We cannot be deem responsible for how seriously gorgeous you are going to look.

    What are your working hours?

    We are open 6 days a week from 9.30am to 9pm for enquiries via email, Skype or phone.
    We generally start the sessions at 9.30am to make the most of the most gentle and flattering natural light, however evening options are also available on request.

    If you are interested in knowing more about Faby and Carlo, London Boudoir Photography and your Experience, please get in touch.
    It will be our pleasure to guide you through the best Boudoir Experience in London.
