My FI and I LOVE vintage style and I often dress up in “pin up inspired” clothing daily. I think I’d like to give him a present the day of our wedding of pictures of me doing a pin up boudoir shoot. So my questions are:
1. Have any of you done this? Plan to do this?
2. Is a boudoir shoot awkward? I know I am supposed to be sexy, but honestly I am more cute than sexy.
3. Any advice on how to do this/what kind of photographer to hire?

Have you selected a wedding photographer already? If so, ask if they do boudoir shoots, as well. Some do and will even give you a discount if you book it with your ceremony and/or engagement shoot.
I know The Knot has a feature on their vendor search that lets you filter by photographers who do boudoir shoots. You might try that to see if anyone is in your area. It seems like it is becoming more popular, so I imagine there will be at least a couple photographers in your area who would do this.
I’ve never done it before, so I can’t say if it is awkward, but if it is something a photographer specialises in, I would think they they know how to make sure you don’t feel uncomfortable. You can always meet with them beforehand to discuss your concerns.
