Did you think about getting a hotel for the night in town?

 

You might be able to get a good rate during the week somewhere and it would be a change of scenery. You could also try a last minute thing on-line.

 

Even if the room was $200 it would be way less than a pro shoot.

I think that's a great idea! Lots of pro BD photogs do this. Try Hotwire.com

A tub full of bubbles might be fun - no lingerie needed wink.gif

Sounds like you two are going to have a blast! I think the idea of doing it for a 1 Yr Anniversary present is a great idea. I talk about BD pics a lot so I wonder if FI is sort of expecting them for the wedding day... may have to put it off a year to surprise him wink.gif

I have tried sooooo hard to not say anything to my fiance about BD photos because I don't want him to expect it at all. It's so hard not to tell him though. I had a Lingerie shower this past weekend and got a ton of awesome stuff to wear for my shoot. I am so excited, and nervous. I'm doing them at a friends condo on the lake, so the shots will be awesome because she has gorgeous views and her house is beautifully decorated. It's on the third floor, so nobody can see in her windows unless they are really trying to look in.

Here is a link to a photographer that has some BD pics online (pretty clean ones): Lynn Michelle Photography | Dallas photographer | Texas photographer | Destination Photography Worldwide

 

She calls them "Eye Candy" so click there. It might give you some ideas and angles to think about. About the 5th picture in is a girl laying down, wrapped in her veil (the shot is from above her head). Hope that helps!

I think that's a great idea! When I got mine, I just had a few different lingerie things and my veil and wedding dress.

 

But I really like the idea of the sports thing. Boy shorts and a sports jersey, guys would love that!

Weight loss goal schmate loss goal. Love who you are now for what you are now :) I'm not saying to toss the weight loss goal out the window, but don't let your size hold you back.

I'm a very +++ size girl and I have been most of my life. I've finally gotten to the point where "if you don't like how I look, don't look at me" :)

I've contacted a photog about doing a BD session. My logic.....he knows what I look like and he loves me. Plus a professional can help with poses and angles. I've decided to do it for him for our 1 year anniversary, since 1 is paper :)

Does FI have a sister or do you have any close girlfriends? If you were closer I'd say I'd take some pics for you once I finished FSIl's

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
