    WOW!
    Okay, I was the one who used Sarah Pukin for my BD shots and here is why...She gave me the images! TAIT does not give you the images, and only gives you 1 hour to shoot.
    Sarah spent almost 3 hours shooting me and it was great.
    here is my review and some pics I posted
    http://bestdestinati....h-pukin-53550/
    if this link doesnt work search Sarah Pukin in the bride referal section.
    This is part of the info I sent to Jenn:

    I thought she was great. She is very young (23?) but made me comfortable right away. ( I went to her studio which is in her Moms house...sounds a bit wierd but the shots turned out great!) I was pretty nervous becuase I am not skinny..( a size 12) and all her shots were of pretty thin girls.
    I thought she did amazing! If you want to see some more I know she is posting them on her blog once I leave for Jamaica, or you could just ask her to see them. She knows I am willing to share...(she hasnt done it yet cause I want my FI to be the first to see them)
    I bought the $400 package and paid for hair and makeup ($50 I think)
    I recommend the make-up for sure. It was great!
    That gave me 20 shots. She took a million (over 300 if I remember right) and I was shocked how many great shots she had! I had trouble narrowing it down to 20.
    I would say from start to finish with make up it took about 3 hours. I brought about 20 outfits and let her choose which ones she thought would work best.
    When I was done we went through all the shots and she helped me pick out 20.
    I did not buy the book from her, out of my budget, but they looked great. I chose her because I could have the cd of images to do what I wanted with.
    When I got it back she had changed each image with different colours, black & white, sepia etc...so I really had a cd with about 160 images to choose from!
    I would reccommend her in a heartbeat!
    Tell her I referred you and ask for the same girl who did my hair and make up...cause she was great!

    If I can answer any other questions feel free to ask!
    Tanya
    I say do it! I felt like a million bucks and I can't wait to see FI face!

      Ok - first of all Tanya, I believe you are the pics I must have seen and if she can make me look your size I'll book her right now!! Because I'm a size uhm...10-12 and to me, you looked like a size 4-6!!!!! like your pics were awesome and I think it was me that mentioned it earlier!!! Her prices are not on the website, do you know if there was a cheaper pkg other than the $400??

        There is a cheaper package but it only included 5 shots...I think if you are going to take your clothes off go big! You might as well get the 20 shot package! I also wanted something cheaper...but I borrowed money from my sister...it was so worth it!
        Her website used to list the prices...she just changed it. I noticed my pics are up in her boudoir portfolio for anyone who wanted to see. They are at the end...(in the teal robe etc...)

        I'm the one who is not super skinny! LOL
        It sounded like a lot, but I am feeling so good about them it was worth it!!

          You should feel good about them, they were awesome, I just finished looking at them again!! lol
          I did send a price request but I think I'll actually call her in the morning and see if she would consider doing a semi-mini-marathon for a small group and maybe discount a bit...I don't know, worth a try and it might be worth her while if say 4 or 5 more BDW Calgarians wanted to book with her.
          It is worth it to have the disc, but I really don't want to pay $550 for just the album from Tait, if Jennybell says the small $250 is not worth it!
          I really want to do this for FI but I REALLY want to get my Nikon D3000 for myself!! Oh priorities!!

                Okay Girls,
                So I emailed Sarah last night.
                She offered to give everyone who books together a 10% off discount. Just tell her you met me on BDWF, then she will know who I was talking about.
                I am not sure if that means you have to book on the same day or not.
                Any questions let me know!~

                    Hey ladies,

                    I just emailed a good friend of mine who had BD shots done before her wedding a couple of years ago that I just remembered (the shots were smoking hot). She works out of a salon downtown somewhere (has a studio in the salon) and is also a make-up artist there. She did my make-up for my friends wedding as well, and it was awesome. Anyways, I will keep you all posted when I hear back with the contact info. and I will try to get some pricing as well.
                    I also have no shame in asking about a group discount...

Dumb question, I am sure the soon to be hubby will love it but you think they will continue to get a kick out of it? want to make sure if it is something that has a CAD 750 price tag on it
                      Sarah also has a package for $300, called Sweet, but I haven't looked at the details yet, I'm sure there are not as many retouched images but she still gives you the cd...just wondering if she gives you all the images that are not retouched or not...I think not....Hmmmmmm, decisions.

                      check out this website everyone: love the song!! lol

                      she said she'd do a full shoot for each of 4 or 5 gals for $350, this includes a lot of images and a disc plus her traveling time (she's located in Edmonton now, we'd just have to split on a small fee for the location, which she already has here through a friend...
