Hey girls. My best friend is getting married two months after me and we want to do our BD pics at the same time. She found some rave reviews on The Knot about Jewel's Studio in Middletown, CT and her prices are so reasonable.

 

Here's her website: homepage

To find the prices, click on "Blog" and scroll down until you see "Boudoir" (posted August 22, 200cool.gif. She explains it all there.

 

Anyway, her prices are going up in 2009, so we were hoping to go some time by the end of the year, but I just can't do it with my work schedule. So I contacted Julie (the photog) and asked her if we got a group of 4 girls to do BD shoots at the same time, would she honor her 2008 prices? She said yes! So now I am reaching out to you. Would anyone be interested in doing a BD shoot some time in January or February? My friend lives in Poughkeepsie, NY, so we'll be leaving from there, but we can meet whoever is interested at the studio.

 

I know it's kind of early to schedule this, but we have to make sure we get a group of 4 together. Please post here or PM me if you're interested!

I checked out her website and it said that sessions were $150, but then I thought I read that she was doing a BD marathon one weekend and the cost for that was $250. So, I was confused.

 

Anyway, there is a slight chance that I may be interested. I want to do them for my FI's bday tho and its Feb 17th. Kristy, have you looked at Lunell from TROY photography at all? A lot of the girls on the CT Knot board have used her and loved her. CT Wedding Photographer,Connecticut Wedding Photographer, Troy Photography Not that there's anything wrong with your first choice. Just wasn't sure if you looked into anything else. :0)

I thought her prices were super reasonable as well. I would've been skeptical, but knowing that she's gotten some great reviews has made me not worry. We'll probably spend more on gas than the actual session! We're both definitely doing the hair and make-up too.

 

Julie isn't booking this far in advance for BD sessions, but I'm hoping to get February 7th. I won't know for a little while though. If someone is DEFINITELY interested, we would make sure we find a date that works for all involved.

 

Kelly, I haven't looked into Lunell (although I have heard of it). I'm carrying two mortgages right now, so I need a very inexpensive photographer. =) Thanks for putting another name out there though.

 

I'm so excited to do this! A few other girls have done group sessions and they said it was so much fun!

I am totally interested.... Please let me know the outcome. I tried to look at her site but couldn't open the Boudoir section.

 

Keep me posted. What is the cost looking like?

 

Thanks

Kathy

Hey girls. Yes, we're still planning on doing this, probably at the beginning of February. I'm hoping for Feb. 7th. I apologize I haven't been around lately to follow up on this. I have had three deaths in the family since July (including one this past Friday), so I haven't really been paying attention to wedding plans.

 

If we get a group of at least four girls together, the photographer will shoot us for $150 per person. The regular cost is $250. If you want to get hair and make-up it's an additional charge of $100(which my friend and I are going to do). When you go to her website, click on her blog and go to her August posts. That has information on boudoir.

 

A few other girls on BDW have done group sessions and they said that they were super fun. I'll be sure to let you all know the date when I get it and hopefully we can get a great group together!
