I was thinking of giving Fiance boudoir pics as a wedding gift. I just mentioned to him that we should start thinking of what to get each other as wedding gifts, which promted him to go searching online. His search brought him here to weddingbee, then he asked me what boudoir pics are. I explained, then he goes “$450 on lingerie pics? What a waste of money!” This surprised me because Fiance and I are not cheap by any means. I thought the pics were a cute idea, and something he would’ve liked to have, but I guess not. Have any of my fellow bees mentioned boudoir pics to your FI? Or given it as wedding gifts? If you have given them as a wedding gift, did he know how much the pics cost? Did he think you were crazy for paying that much for them?

I’ve mentioned it to Fiance and he does think the amount is crazy, but mine would be at least $600 for a very VERY basic package.

What if you find some for a cheaper price? I know if Vancouver, at least, there are certainly packages for around $500, but there are also some packages for around $200 for just a 30 minute shoot. Maybe that would work better?
I also find men in general (maybe not your Fiance, I don’t know) don’t understand the cost of photography. My Fiance genuinely thought we could get a photographer for our whole wedding day for $500. Plus, once your Fiance receives the boudoir photos I’m sure he wouldn’t be thinking about the cost.

I really want to get them done, but when I mentioned it to my Fiance, he was like ‘no way.’ He’s conservative, so it’s the idea of someone taking my pictures in my undies. I think I’m going to ask my friend who’s super into photography, then print out the pictures from my photo printer, and assemble a museum book for him. I still think he’ll like it, even though he gave me a negative reaction. It’s just making me get more creative about how it gets done!
