I’m planning on doing a budoir shoot for my husband for our 1st anniversary. I know he’d love it and it will give me some real motivation to get toned up and stay that way until next summer.
I think I would really like to do a TTD session with the same photographer before the budoir shoot, in order to make sure I’m really comfortable with this woman (it’d have to be a female for the budoir) and that she can give good direction (I def. need coaching)
I’d like to spend as little money as possible and add to the portfolio of a newer professional- so posting an ad on craigslist was the first option that popped into my mind, but you know that place is full of “photographers” begging to take 1/2 naked pictures of women.
Can anyone suggest a Rhode Island/ Western CT/ Southern MA photographer you know or have worked with who is just starting out and would be willing to work with a very small budget? I’m starting my search early so hopefully I will be able to contact several and get a feel for their work and personality. I don’t want to make a snap judgement when it comes to a budoir photog.

Why not work with your wedding photographer? Or ask her for a recommendation – photographers seem to be a pretty well connected bunch! They’re all about networking. 🙂

@eseds: Thanks for your suggestion. The blog is great, but I don’t have the budget to fly someone across the country to take pictures of me. What I’m willing to pay wouldn’t even cover a plane ticket.
@ddw: While I did love my photog, she was a woman, and she’s actually done pinup style shots before- I’ve pretty much maxed out my photography budget with her already. I don’t think i could afford to have her again. Thats a good idea to ask her for a rec. though.

Fabuluxe Photos. Her (Claudia) stuff is amazing! http://www.fabuluxephotos.com She has a budoir site that you can access from there. Used her for our engagment photos and we are using her for our wedding too.
