    Does anyone know any Female B photgraphers in Michigan?
    Preferrably in the Detroit/Ann Arbor Area.

    My friend Holly and i have decided to do it as our gift for our hubbies :) I am going first and she wants to book right after me.

    Now all we need is a good photographer.......

      I'm not sure about Michigan, but Bobbi (I think in Indiana?) did Natalie's a couple months ago and they were great! Here's a link to her blog & site: bobbi+mike

        not in Detroit but in Lansing. Jennifer Shelton

        If you contact her, tell her I referred you to her.


        Ladies, I just want to reiterate that there are amazingly talented male photographers who also shoot boudoir work. And limiting yourself to only female shooters I think is limiting the options you have.

        I realize the comfort issue but male photographers are just as professional as female shooters and will make you just as comfortable as well. Many times they have female assistants or a make up artist for you. Plus, you'll have someone with you that you bring.

        I highly recommend meeting your photographer first whether they are male or female so you are comfortable with them but especially if they are male, I know it would help.

        All I'm saying is, give us guys a chance too. We want to make great photos for you too!!

          I don't know of a female photog in Michigan, but I was just reading this and wanted to add my two cents to what Jonathan said.

          While I totally agree that there are lots of very talented male photogs out there that could produce some seriously sexy B photos, I personally know even though I might feel comfortable with a male that my FI would FLIP if he found out a guy took the pics... and yes, he'd totally ask.

            Tara- i totally agree.

            Its not necessarily the comfort level- its the fact that how would my fiance feel knowing that another man took pics of me like that and he wasnt even there. I just think its kind of weird.

            I am certainly going to meet with the photographer fist- however if i could just find one in my area first- that would be great!

              Poor jonathan.. :-) If it makes you feel better, I would feel weird with either a female or male photographer.. :-)

              BTW, Jonathan have you ever done a Trash the dress?

                I agree. While its totally unfair for male photographers... my FI was be pissed, and it will totally ruin the gift.

                  I will add that if I did a b-session and there were other women there.. Cain would be mad that the other women weren't in the photos as well.. lol

                    That's good to know there's one in Lansing!

                    Sorry Jonathan, but I just don't think too many brides are going to have a male take b-pics of them. And for exactly the reasons already mentioned I would never have considered a male photog even if they were awesome and their prices were great...Jeff would FLIP OUT if I was even remotely unclothed in front of another man, and rightly so. Sorry, just had to add my two cents!

                      I don't understand why your FI's would freak out. I would think they'd be happy that you did it and that it was a great gift. They should know that a photographer is a professional just like a doctor would be.

                      Do all of you have female doctors? Would your FI's get upset over you having a male doctor? A photo shoot would be far less revealing than a doctors visit. How is that different?
