I can’t find one AT ALL where I live. I guess it isn’t some thing Southern ladies do.

What province are you in?  My photographer does boudoir and I know she provides the edited images on a CD – not sure the number of images though.  She also does boudoir marathons so the cost is a bit cheaper and includes hair and make-up.

@ChantelleyLace: Just wanted to point out that I show each and every one of my clients an image printed a Walmart next to an image printed by my pro company (the exact same image, no additional edits or color correction) and point out all the ways in which Walmart makes photos look like DUKE. Clients take one look and wont even consider ordering a Walmart print again.

@ChantelleyLace:  I am in Edmonton.  I’m not sure about the cost it would be to include travel, unless you came here for the photos – depends how far into Saskatchewan you are!  I will PM you my photographer in case you want to check them out!

@ChantelleyLace: Maybe the “professional” prints you were comparing to weren’t really professional. I did a test batch of all the photos I was planning to print in an album once and ran it off at Walmart just to double check the colors before sending my album off. Looking at them, I thought every single photo was messed up, thought I must have done some funny editing on them or something and was about to pull all my hair out. Instead, I ordered the same prints from my printing company just to see if I was crazy or if Wally world prints could REALLY BE THAT BAD, and low and behold every single one of them came back looking fantastic. They looked fantastic in the album too (as they are professionally printed albums)… Wally world really is that bad, but I understand why if you can’t afford pro grade stuff, you’d prefer to think it’s all the same. Sorry in advance as I don’t mean to be snarky, but I guess I just didn’t like the insinuation that photogs were trying to rip off brides with their print prices for “the same thing” that really costs .19 as you put it :/
