For a bride that isn't afraid to bare a little (or it all!), boudoir photos make for the ultimate gift for your future spouse — especially when they’re a surprise. And when it comes to boudoir shoots, there’s an art to creating classy, provoking, and sensual photos. As the saying goes, “location, location, location”— which means where you shoot them really does impact their quality. We’re partial to a few of many gorgeous hotels Dallas has to offer, since it’s frowned upon to run around the streets in your skivvies. Here are the best Dallas hotels for a beautiful, pristine backdrop for your boudoir session.
Check into Hotel ZaZa for a night or two, and you’ll have enough time to spoil yourself and relax at the ZASPA — then be rested and refreshed for your boudoir photo shoot the next day. Discreetly speak with the hotel manager if there’s a certain style you’re wanting to achieve, as some rooms are dark and romantic while others are more on the light and airy side. If you really want variation, choose two styled rooms with different vibes over two days (and make sure your photographer is able to accommodate). Read real brides' reviews here!
NYLO Dallas South Side has a gorgeous mixture of industrial and contemporary vibes with pops of bold colors, making it a great backdrop for boudoir shoots. As a boutique hotel, every room is designed and curated to look distinct and unique. The 10-foot ceilings, exposed brick, large windows (that can be blacked out, of course), concrete floors, and modern furnishings give you plenty of options for posing and moving about.

This historic property was first built in 1922 as the city of Dallas’ first skyscraper. Now, even though the skyline is full, this particular building still holds strong in its legacy. Inside, you’ll find extra luxe rooms with white linens (perfect for your boudoir photo ops), lots of natural lighting, and modern furnishings. Get a little creative by ordering up some room service, like chocolate-covered strawberries and bubbly to incorporate in your pictures, too. Read real brides' reviews here!
Le Meridien by the Galleria is a fantastically modern and luxurious option for your photoshoot. The lobby welcomes you with pomegranate & grey decor and bright green foliage. Once in your room, mid-century modern touches like wire chairs, abstract art, and elaborate wallpaper come together to create your perfect boudoir photoshoot location. Incorporate the room’s decor by sitting cross-legged in chairs, using wallpaper as a background, or creating amazing silhouettes in front of the windows. Read real brides' reviews here!
