@Missbigdreamer:  I did! I gave it to my guy for Christmas last year. My company actually used me as their opening page on their website. Check out 1159photography.com 🙂 I don’t have any of my other pictures online, though.

But he loved them! I actally had them put into a book, as well as a View Master reel… like one of the old red picture things kids had (like whats seen below) Anyways… he LOVED it!

Also, I’m a reeeeally awkward person, especially in front of the camera. And my people made me feel SO comfortable. I hope your pictures turn out as good as mine did!

I did one! Actually just got the album in the mail yesterday!

I had fun with mine, and I was really pleased with the pictures. I didn’t eat or drink anything the day of so that my belly would be flat, lol. Other tips: wear loose clothing the evening before and morning of so that you don’t have lines on your skin and cut the tags out of any lingerie you’ll be wearing.

I wore three outfits: a dress shirt of my FI’s with matching black lingerie underneath, the same black set with thigh highs and heels, and a translucent negligee (which looks awesome in the photos, because it kind of skims my body and then in the pictures with a lot of light, you can see the outline of my torso underneath.

I also wore false eyelashes and a TON of eye makeup, and I’m so glad I did! Here’s a pic of my makeup:

Also, I asked her to get a few shots with my ring kind of prominent, and then I ended up putting one of those last in the album–like, here, happy wedding day! Lol.

Good luck! Hopefully your photog will bring some champagne–that definitely helped for me, haha.

@howsweetitis:  I also wore his favorite button down shirt with black lingerie underneath. Also… are you Darci?

Yup! I did some and FI loved them! I kept it very classy. Don’t eat anything that will make you bloat and don’t wear a bra to the shoot because you don’t want lines.

@howsweetitis:  Oh nevermind, just looked at your engagement photos in another thread… not her. You just looked like her with the make up on! 🙂

@LeonardLady:  Hahaha, definitely not Darci. People always tell me I look familiar to them though–I must just have one of those faces!

Well I didn’t do a professional one. But there was an incident recently where my FI was looking at half naked model pictures of a girl he went to school with. So I decided that he should be looking at photos like that of me instead, even though I am far from model skinny, so I got FI to take photos of me posed in various lingerie outfits, and I put all the photos in a mini photo album, and gave it to him 🙂 He loves it! Go for it 🙂

I did but not for anyone other than myself at the time.  I knew a friend of a friend who was a photographer and just wanted to do something for myself. I felt super sexy after and had an amazing time.  Are you taking your own outfits or will the photographer have a selection?  Have fun with it… and if you are bringing your own clothes and are allowed two or three bring an extra and let the photographer pick which ones will look best (they think of things you might not such as lighting).  Oh and one tip my photographer gave me is to wear panties that are a size larger than usual.  It makes sure your skin isn’t being pressed into at all and you will avoid panty lines if you slip them down or move them a little.  Oh and one more thing.  Props!!  I brought lots of props and it made it fun.   Some clothing ideas:  Large strands of beads, glasses, bottle of wine, large oversized shirt of his, favortie team jersey, flowers or a flower, cherries, super high heels, (doesn’t matter if you can walk in them.. it’s just for pics), may be your veil (if you are using one)…

 

Good luck and have fun!!

I couldn’t figure out how to type and post a pic but there is one of the more modest photo’s.  I’m a lil too shy to post the sexier ones.  Again, hope you have fun!!
