I’ve been seeing more and more info on doing a boudoir shoot for a gift. After looking at ideas all morning, I kinda want to do it, but I’m scared at the same time! I’m just curious, for those of you who chose to do this, how did you decide you wanted to?

I had never heard of doing something like that until I started planning my wedding and seeing stuff about it on Weddingbee. I thought about it and decided against it because I felt it was out of the budget of what I wanted to spend…but once I had it in my head, I couldn’t get it out. I couldn’t come up with any other gift ideas for my Fiance that I could get excited about, so I decided to just go for it.
I was nervous too, but it ended up being really fun! You can start by just researching photogs in your area who do boudoir and looking through their portfolios. Once I found one I felt comfortable with, I was a lot less nervous.

I just had my shoot yesterday and it went wonderfully! Like farmersdaughter, I saw all of the beautiful photos on places like Weddingbee and started to think that it would be an amazing wedding gift. Fiance and I will have to be long-distance for about 6 months during our first year of marriage because we are both in the process of career transitions and I thought this gift would be that much more special because of the separation. I also recently lost a lot of weight and really felt good about my body for the first time in 5 or so years so I figured, what better time than now?
Although you didn’t ask, I chose my photog carefully, researching many people in the area and looking over their portfolios online. The person I chose does only boudoir and has her own studio specifically designed for boudoir shoots that allowed me to have a wide range of pictures (I think there were 6 settings altogether). I also looked at the type of products that they offered.
PM me if you have any questions! I will tell you that I found it completely not nervewracking.
