1. Did you take the photos yourself or did you get a photographer? -My friend did them for me. She isn’t a professional photographer, but she takes amazing photographs and they turned out great.

2/ If you got a photographer was it easy to work with them with little clothing?  You’d be amazing what a glass or two of champagne can do for your confidence when your stripped down!  I also might recommend bringing a friend to be there with you.

3. If you got a photographer do they keep a copy of the photos or do they get rid of all of their copies?  She gave me all of them

4. When did you give the photos to your Fiance.  -I gave them to him right before we parted ways at our rehearsal dinner (the night before our wedding)

5. What do you wear for these pictures? -I just got some fun panties from Victoria’s secret and a few different bras, fishnets, and heels!

6. Any pose tips, things to avoid and things to do for someone who is not so happy with their abdomen?  I hate my abdomen!  If you actually hire a photographer they know exactly what positions will look best for you.  If there is another part of your body that you or your Fiance loves, make sure to get lots of shots of that!  I love my butt and we focused on that.. a lot! lol

8. Did you make a book or print out pictures or add them to an album? How do you present the photos?  My friend put an album together for me.  It was a simple, black album

I’m planning on doing a boudoir shoot in two weeks!  Here are my answers so far:

1. Did you take the photos yourself or did you get a photographer? I’m using the same photgrapher for my engagement, boudoir, and wedding (all part of a pkg)

2. If you got a photographer was it easy to work with them with little clothing? I don’t think I will have a problem with this for a few reasons: I’ve met her before and did our engagement session with her already, I’ve already told her my boundaries (nothing nude), and I’ve seen her boudoir portfolio (she’s very professional)

3. If you got a photographer do they keep a copy of the photos or do they get rid of all of their copies? I believe she keeps a copy for her records, however, she will not share/post/blog without permission.  The session comes with a DVD with copyright release

4. When did you give the photos to your FI? I’m planning to make a scrapbook with these in it as his groom’s gift

5. What do you wear for these pictures?  I have a couple of bra/panty sets, garters with stockings, men’s dress shirt, a slip, a bustier

6. Any pose tips, things to avoid and things to do for someone who is not so happy with their abdomen?  I am in the same boat (I’ve never even seen an ab lol), and this is where the photographer comes in.  She knows which lighting/poses will be the most flattering.  She did an awesome job of this during our engagement shoot.

7. When did you give these to your FI/DH? I’m considering the night before the wedding before the bachelor and bachelorette party as his wedding gift.  Groom’s gift the day of the wedding (my pictures will be pretty PG-13)

8. Did you make a book or print out pictures or add them to an album? How do you present the photos?  Making a scrapbook.  I’m designing the pages in photoshop/InDesign, then printing them at home and adding embellishments.  This way, the only copies of the photos are with me and my photographer.  Here’s a sample page with one of our E-pics
