- Wedding: May 2013
So, I went to my boudoir appointment last week and…I hated it. I wanted to yell at the lady-the-entire-time.
She took one look at my veil and let out a squee and ran off with it to “start photographing” while I was getting my makeup done. When she came back she looked at my hair (up in a bun) she said “Ok how about this- you take your hair OUT and it’s down.. yeah let’s do that: take her hair down”
Um-hello NO. How about asking me what I want? I was already a bit miffed
So I’m sure you guys have seen my veil. It;s the Uma-Arabella mix. She throws it on the bed and tells me to lay on top of it. I carefully lay on it. I’m super scared to rip it or the flowers on it. I’m wearing my wedding shoes and a victoria’s secret bra and garter skirt set that have rhinestones on it. They COULD snag it
She ignores me and argues with me. I finaly say I’m to scared to rip the veil- No I will not “scoot over” or move my heels along the veil.
I told her I was nervous about my tummy. I had a LOT of strech marks and loose skin. I wanted to use some of her props to cover my tummy. I have a small spare tire and I;m wearing a garder skirt, so I really was worried but she assured me it would be OK come the shoot.
Day of- she kept putting me in positions that made my garder skirt ride up. NOTHING was covering my tummy. NOTHING. It made me really nervous and I was very uncomfortable
When she’s put me in positions she wanted me in, they always involved my arms up in akward positions, my wieght on one foot, and my needs bent. I was told to hold these positions for upwords of 3-4 minutes while she “got ready” and moves lights arround. I’m not THAT fit. SHit was starting to HURT.
When I would let her know these were not working for me I was ignored and let me know that boudiour photography was like this and it wasn’t easy. It was hard to smile because I wanted to punch her. I finaly just plopped down on the floor mid picture. I couldn’t take it anymore.
She’s been obsessed with my veil. Every fucking picture it was used. Even when I told her I thought we should move on she brought it back in. She says she’ll be right back and goes next door and brings in some random lady I’ve NEVER MET and asks her to old my veil above me so she can get a shot with the a shadows of the flowers over my face.
Hello- I’m in my underwear. Can we not just invite people in? She then begins to talk about how she wants to go back to the lady’s shop later for a pedicure and MAKES AN APPOINTMENT WITH THE LADY WHILE I”M ON THE FLOOR.
She’s done and I’m going next thursday to see the proofs. I’m not allowed to have copies of them. I have to buy the CD for $300 so until I see them I’m not sure if I’l have anything to show you guys.
The whole thing was just horrible. Unless I look like a Victoria’s Secret Model I’m NOT doing that ever again
