I think you should do it, especially if you are comfortable with your body. After all, it won’t look as hot as it is now forever! Immortalize it in pictures. 🙂

I am having my wedding photographer come in a bit earlier (no charge, still within the hours I am provided) on the morning of the wedding to do a mini shoot. My makeup will be done, and my hair will be just out of rollers and down for a flirty, romantic look. Go for it!

I love my boudoir photos and I loved my photographer!  For some pics of my shoot go to http://www.carolinetran.net/blog/?cat=23

I highly recommend Caroline Tran.  I didn’t have a theme, but I did a variety of different outfits and poses — some serious and some fun.

those are great examples!   I think Pink Posh has some, too.  I would really like to do them, but am not a size 2-6.  😉  I am a fairly hourglass size 12, so I might go for a more 50’s style pin up look with sexy dresses …more betty page hair, etc…if that makes sense…I would just ask yourself what does your man find sexy, when you wear it or style wise…

TallBride, I was really nervous too, but after I did it, I felt so empowered. I just had so much fun doing it. The pictures are phenomenal, but just having the experience of doing it was awesome. I’d definitely recommend getting your hair and makeup done so that you feel all dolled up!

@cannotwait, please don’t feel like you can’t do it because you’re not a 0! If you go with a skilled boudoir photographer, they will put you in poses that make you feel awesome about yourself. And besides, isn’t that why they invented photoshop?? I’m a size 6 and I had to retouch a number of photos (smoothing out some parts, erasing weird smirking faces that I thought were sexy at the time…!).

I just did my own and I loved it! Tons of fun and some sassy pictures to boot. I highly recommend it. And, as others said, if you are going to immortalize yourself, why not when you are in the best shape of your life:)

I did not photograph my own, I had my own taken

I decided to boudoir for the same reason.  Great experience, and my husband loves the book I made for him.  We both love it!
