I have a question for you ladies that already had your shoots, where did you do them?

 

I'm supposed to have mine done at my photogs house but now I'm thinking I should get a hotel room. Any suggestions?

I also did mine at my photogs house, the lighting was great and she had different backdrops to use. I am sure you are not the first person they will have shot in the home. You will be fine. I wouldn't add an expense for a hotel room unless there is a specific hotel that is special to you and your FI

I just went to Claire's & picked up a long necklace - nothing fancy. It was like $12 or something like that! Other than that I only wore my larimar flip flop necklace that DH gave me for our wedding. Now that I think about it, I don't think I even wore earrings! lol

Thanks ladies! I guess my photog would know best if his house was suitable or not and he's got all his equipment :)

 

It's funny because when I originally considering doing the shoot I asked him to recommend a photog to do it because he had no pictures or promotion on his site and he told me he does them all the time but they don't go on his website because they are private and I felt better.

 

Alright I'm gonna relax and let it happen, I'm bringing white sheets but that's it I believe. You'd thinking kicking coffee would relax me, I think it's actually making me more crazy :)

ok...so i just got back from my shoot! I hired Kamila Harris and she was absolutely great to work with! She directed me how to pose and showed pics as we went along.

 

The only thing I did not like was my make up. The girl who did it just put too much foundation and made my eyes to dark. I told her before we started that I never ever wear make up so i wanted something natural. She said that the eyes would need to be a little dark so that it could show up in the photos. I am waiting for teaser pics and i really really hope that i look ok. I am scared that my FI may not like the photos because of the make up sad.gif

Joanna, how exciting! I can't wait to see your pix!

 

I'm sure you're FI might not even notice that you are wearing darker makeup than usual one he sees them wink.gif

hi girls! hey KH :) I am starting to think about my BD shoot, so I can get my butt in shape!! Our photographer is out of town, so we will have to travel to have our engagement pictures. I was thinking I could sneak away and have some "bridal portraits" aka BD shoot while we are there. How long do these shoots usually take? She also suggested doing it the first day of our Mexico trip. Any other ideas?

For my shoot, we started at 11:30 and I was out by 1:30. The shoot itself was probably about an hour, but i had to wait a bit to get my hair and make up done.

Jerseygirl - I am sure your photos will be great! Your makeup artist is right...under the bright lights you can lose your eyes without enough makeup on them - I hope you like them because I am sure your sweetie will think they are amazing! Remember they are you, but a little bit of racey you toowink.gif

 

Well I just booked and the photographer was awesome and has me coming in two weeks! That is just going to fly by!

    • Economics as a career is highly rewarding in the current environment. We need economists to study agriculture in an increasingly changing global weather patterns, decode financial implications of economic plans as well as help the government formulates administrative policies. Economics Honours graduates are in high demand in almost every Fortune 500 company as well for top government jobs. The options with this degree are endless.   If you are among those thousands of students looking for a career as an Economics Honours graduate but have no idea how - don’t worry. We have got you covered! Read on to know all about one of India’s most preferred courses and what are the career options after economics honours (some really fancy ones!) that open up for you with an Economics Honours degree.
    • Hi! I'm from the US (but I've been to the UK 6x- my finance says i'm not allowed to move there! lol) Many resort lines don't offer something like the dress rehearsal, which I think is crazy! It's such a smart idea!  Having been to Mexico so much, I find it so much more comfortable- Yes there are dangers but I don't find it any worse than Philly or NY. It is a country that gets SO MUCH money from the service industry- it literally benefits no one to mess with tourists. Your tip money at the bar is feeding someones family. Not that the DR is any different in that it relies on tourist $, but the vibe is just totally different.  In the DR, they were really very serious about us not leaving the resorts (we did- I don't believe in staying on resorts lol). Once off, we realized why. Now, full disclosure, we went right after the 2010 earthquake, so this was a) some time ago and b) right after a natural disaster. Once we left we just felt immediately uncomfortable. (We even saw a man approaching a goat with  a large gun and the Taxi driver seemed nervous and sped away- poor goat!) I find in Mexico everyone is SO respectful- in the DR I had guys make lewd comments (both from those off the resort, and more disturbingly from workers at the resort), grabbing at me, just generally super disrespectful and not at all comforting. My dad had to kick the room service guy out of our room bc he refused to leave when we asked!  This could have been completely isolated to the staff at our specific resort, but it definitely happened off resort as well. A la Anthony Bourdain, I have always considered myself a traveller, not a tourist, so I have zero interest in staying on a resort the entire time (really I'm not in love with resorts period lol), so for me, if I can't go off resort safely, what business do I have being there at all? Also they  made be throw out my coffee before I got on the plane- the coffee I got at the food court at the gate. I'm holding that grudge LOL. A long story short- it's not on my list of returns. I can honestly say that I'm not sure I would accept an invitation to a wedding in the DR- I think I'd rather save that money and go to Mexico! (or the UK, or Iceland, or just Europe in general lol)  I don't regret going, but I'd sooner go to Mexico if I'm looking for a beach!  That's just me- millions of people go there and have a great time! I guess it really comes down to what type of traveller you are (are you okay with being on a resort and just leaving for excursions)!
    • Hello, thank you so much for this it’s all very helpful.. are you from the UK OR US? ive never been and I probably won’t visit the destination until I get married! Oh my gosh I have looked at your resort it is beautiful!! my family have been to the Dominican.. can I ask why you didn’t find it as safe?   Thanks again 
    • Hi! Well, I stumbled on this forum, and then when I realized it was run by a travel agency (while being really impartial- the fact that there are reviews for OTHER agencies was a good sign!) I didn't look any further! Their website, where you can fill out a contact form:  https://www.wrighttravelagency.com/ Babs actually sent me an email on a Sunday (she had been out of the office on Friday) so that's how we started- I was so impressed right off the bat! You may not get Babs, but I can only imagine that the entire office is amazing! We're getting married at Azul Riveria Cancun (formerly Sensatori). We chose it because we have kids coming. We actually just went down for the Brides Dress Rehearsal (A really cool program Karisma Resorts do, where they give you a special price/couple to go down and check out some resorts, meet wedding planners and vendors etcetc- it's great having never been there to leave knowing and seeing it all- http://www.memorablemomentsweddings.com/Memorable-Moments-Weddings-Dress_Rehearsal.cfm) I'm pretty laid back- it's Mexico. Where ever you are, how ever it's decorated, whatever the weather is- it's going to be gorgeous. I wanted a destination wedding so that I could not worry about things! It will be what it will be- and regardless of what it is, MEXICO! lol I did just see a post about travel guidelines for the DR (Below). Just something to consider, it seems really restrictive! Have you been to the DR? I'm struggling at the moment with people who are afraid to travel to Mexico, which I've always found funny because I've been 6 times and I'm still alive! AND only 3 of those times were on resorts! I felt the least safe of all my travels in the DR, so it's just something that I like to mention!
    • Hello, oh thank you that’s great, how can I come across her details? where are you getting married and how have you found planning so far?
