I had never heard of boudoir photography until I started googling wedding things like a crazy person (you know, the point after you get engaged when all you think about is wedding, Wedding, WEDDING! Who needs to finish the budget at work when you can google Photographers! Cupcakes! WEDDING DRESS! Oy). Anywho, as I perused all things wedding on the internet I stumbled across this rather fantastic type of photography. I was thrilled! What better wedding present for Fiance than this? Not only is it something I’ll be able to look at when I’m 90 and say “see? I used to be foot-loose and wrinkle free” but he can take it with him when he deploys. After a quick search I found a photographer in the area who did boudoir photo shoots, Andrea Casey. She is WONDERFUL and I would highly recommend her to anyone who lives in the central/upstate NY area. It was a whole day just about me feeling beautiful and sexy, just for Fiance. I had a spa day in the morning–hair, makeup, mani/pedi, and then off to the hotel. I had about 10 outfits, including shoes, and was READY TO GO.
When Andrea arrived she immediately put me at ease and got straight to work. We took hundreds of photographs and I truly had a great time. I felt like a model! The hardest part of the whole process has been waiting to give it to Mr. Librarian. I’ve had the album for over a month and the temptation has been great (although MUCH easier now that he is away training, I can’t give it to him if he’s not here). I can’t wait for him to open this gift after the rehearsal dinner. I can just imagine the look on his face: first total shock and disbelief (conservative lil ol’ me did this?!), followed by an impossibly big smile. If you’ve been on the fence about doing a boudoir photography session I would tell you to absolutely do it! So worth every penny. And check out Andrea at http://www.andreacaseyphotography.com

You know, I have been thinking about this more and more. I think my Fiance would love it, but I am afraid of the cost. Did you go out and buy all those outfits? I don’t just have stuff laying around that I could wear. And just the cost of the shoot itself, its kind of holding me back. But your pictures came out amazing!
I live in the Finger Lakes, I wonder if I should call her and just see what she has to say!

Oh I so agree with the somehting to look at while he deploys, that is a lot of the reason I want to do mine. I am actually planning on sending mine to him in Afghanistan, since he has been there since March.

Cost of outfits isn’t so bad–just buy what’s on sale. You can’t tell expensive lingerie from cheap lingerie in photos, anyways!
Trust me…cute undies goes a long way. I ended up with my “fourth outfit” by tossing the bra aside and using tulle and my hands and other drapey fabrics my photographer had lying around to cover me up.

You ladies are so sweet! Thank you for all the kind words I have to say I love them! I’ve never done anything like it before. I hope he reacts like you guys haha!
And, mskalinin, it is a tad expensive. I budgeted and saved for it. But, it really is worth it in my opinion! Your hubby will have them forever! Absolutely give Andrea a call, I’m pretty sure she does work in Skaneateles and the finger lakes. Tell her I said hi!
