    If you want to do boudoir sessions, you sign up for Groupon or Living Social. I ALWAYS seen boudoir sessions offered on there for like 70%ish off the typical price from various photography studios. I’ve bought other things and they work out fine. Sometimes I wonder why businesses do it, as I don’t think a lot of things bring much repeat business.

    Sometimes the sites are weird about listing the deals that haven’t expired. And I’ve seen them disappear, even though they haven’t expired, but I just do a google search and it usually brings them. Weird and kind of annoying, but the price is usually good. The ratings/reviews/regular prices should be checked out first though, because sometimes they stretch the “retail value” estimation, of course. But overall they’ve been handy. So you might want to google “groupon boudoir” and the biggest city near you, and see what comes up. Sometimes it’ll bring up long expired offers, but if there’s a current one, usually you can find it. They change every few days though (if you buy one, usually they don’t expire for several months though).

    My FH has asked me not to, which is fair enough. I think partly he’s not keen on the idea, and also practicality-wise, we’d have to hide them any time anyone came round the house EVER.

    That and I’m fairly certain any attempts of mine to be sexy would merely be comical.

    my fiance also told me he wouldn’t really like me to do it. he basically said since we are getting married and moving in together, he could see me like that any time he wanted lol. he is also pretty old-fashioned and doesn’t like the thought of someone else seeing me wearing practically nothing (even if it was a female). plus we are paying for our own wedding and just do not have extra money. it might be fun, but i think i would be super uncomfortable and awkward anyway!

    I did it two weeks ago. It’s not awkward or uncomfortable, find a good photographer.  I did mine outside and it was really fun!

    Not me, I think they’re beautiful pictures, and I applaud those who do get them done, but I wouldn’t feel comfortable getting pics like that.

    I’m excited to do mine before the wedding!! I’m steadily working on losing weight; by the time I get the photos done, I will be at my goal weight. The pics won’t just be for FH – they’ll be for me, as well!! ๐Ÿ™‚
