I’ve noticed that many bees get boudoir photos done (I’ve actually been thinking it might be an awesome anniversary gift for FI someday after we get married) and afterwards like to share them on Weddingbee. Actually part of the reason I’ve been reconsidering a boudoir shoot is because you all look so gorgeous in all of your photos, so thank you for sharing!
I’m definitely not shy and I *totally* wouldn’t mind sharing boudoir photos with the lovely ladies of Weddingbee, but…
Aren’t the photos on here searchable on Google and other search engines? Would anyone else be nervous about strange men on the internet being able to see their photos on a public forum like Weddingbee? (I do get that there are ladies that just wouldn’t mind, but I dunno if I’m *that* comfortable with sharing myself haha.)
I guess I’m just wondering if there’s some WB privacy setting that I don’t know about that would make sure that your photos are only visible to WB members lol.

@rachelmichelle: I noticed that yesterday, and yes, I think you’re right. Everything is searchable if I’m not mistaken! When it comes to boudoir photos, I’d be more apt to private message a curious bee versus posting it!

I don’t think there is. I also suspect that if you put a photo in a thread and delete it later, it can still show up in a search, even if it won’t show in the thread any more.

Yikes! That’s crazy. XD
I guess I’d definitely be more comfortable messaging them to a regular poster who was curious than I would be posting them on an open thread.

I remember one bee posted a link to hers, and then PMd anyone who wanted the password. Much safer!

Yeah, it all comes up on google!

@rachelmichelle: I think it depends on your pictures too. I’ve posted a boudoir pic from my shoot, but it’s a closeup of my face. I definitely wouldn’t post anything that wouldn’t be considered PG to PG-13. Always use caution when posting private things on a public forum.

I don’t put my normal pictures on here never mind boudoir photos. I think most pictures are nice and don’t show to much. I think when posting things to the internet my thinking is I lost all control of that photo and it can surface anywhere and anytime. This is a public forum and I don’t think it would be that hard to find the pictures.

I had the same initial thought. Also if you are like me, I have the same user name for everything I do so anyone who types this in will see me in my bra. I try not to be judgemental and the pictures are always classy and beautiful…but there’s a super public factor where I would never post something like that online. I googled the style of my dress and it came up under google images because I tagged it in the thread.

I had been contemplating writing a similar thread but I didn’t want to face the criticism. I was looking at a boudoir post the other day, and whilst the photos were lovely all I could think was these photos are now out there FOREVER for any old creepy creep to look at. I would not be comfortable with that. Wedding Bee mostly feels like a safe community because it’s a predominately female forum but in reality anyone can be looking at our posts.

every time i google stuff on rings, Weddingbee pics pop up!
it kinda scares me that our pix are so front and center.

I’m probably in the minority but I honestly don’t care if people can see my boudoir pics. I’m not a particularly private person and I’m fully aware that nothing on the internet is private.

@SpecialSundae: I’m guessing it’s the girls that post their photos, thinking the pictures will never be seen by anyone except those on weddingbee, that run into problems. I don’t see anything wrong with posting boudoir pics, I’m just not that brave (weird body issues, hate how I picture, etc).

Everytime I have googled my dress my pics come up on google images….I see tons of weddingbee pics on google images….not sure if someone googled boudior if your weddingbee pics would come up?

I won’t be posting any of the super racy pics, just some of the tamer ones from my boudoir shoot. Though TBH, I’m a bit of an exhibitionist and really don’t mind the idea of men seeing me lol.
