    I had originally planned on it, but the photographer and package I wanted would have been about $750, and that was one of the lower packages she offered.  It also didn’t include getting my hair done or anything, so that would also be an extra expense.

    I changed my mind because I don’t feel like putting that kind of money out right now for boudoir pics and honestly I don’t feel like dealing with another thing before the wedding.  I think it would stress me out to have to prepare for a boudoir shoot.  I’m considering maybe doing it for our one year anniversary.

    I’d really like to, but it’s not in the budget right now. If I have some spare money laying around at some point (ha!) I’ll revisit the idea, but until then keeping our animals fed and the textbook industry happy takes precedence.

    I am on May 9! I’m excited/nervous! (I was able to get a pretty good deal – I’m just getting a CD with the images, then making an album myself.)

    I plan on it, but I’m just not sure who will take the photos for me and when I’ll be able to do it.  I have a great Maid/Matron of Honor out in Seattle who would do a great job, but I don’t know if/when I’ll be able to get out there before the wedding, so we’ll see.

    I really want to, but it’s probably not going to happen because of budget constraints.

    I will be doing it at a swanky hotel with my female photographer. Afterwards, I’m going to treat the Fiance to a night on the town and we’ll have a room to stay in.

    I was thinking about it, but Fiance flat out told me that he doesn’t know what he’d do with them other than hide them in a drawer, so I figured it was a waste of money.  I’m going to put that money away for a few years from now and do a pregnancy shoot- at least those I would be able to frame and put on the wall! 🙂

    I would try to find out if your Fiance is into it or not.  A lot of guys just seem totally bewildered by the whole concept.  Like, “Why do I need a picture of you in lingerie when I can just see you naked whenever I want?” (My FI’s words…) 😉

    I have done boudoir photos before and plan to do a book for my Fiance for his wedding gift.  The key is to find a photographer you are comfortable with.  I use a friend who shoots models for a lving.  Since he is not a wedding photographer I pay an hourly rate which includes re-touching on a set number of photos.  if I want more I pay more.  He also has a local printer who will print the photos (the majority of his shots include nudes so you can’t just take the disc to wal-mart).  Look around on Facebook and MySpace.  You’d be amazed at the deals you can get.
