    That one sounds good! Do you know if she has certain dates that she will travel here?

      She does...and I totally forget them, so I just shot her another email for the details again...we were chatting on the phone for a while one day and I had written everything down but now I can't find it! lol

      So once she emails me back I will definitely post her response, I also mentioned that there are a lot interested but we are all price crunching right now so depending on how many people were actually going to book would she move on price a bit...and find a cheaper make up and hair gal, because the one she priced was $150 for both...to much for me and I definitely need help in the hair and makeup category!!

        I hear you on the hair and make-up Suzy! I already don't take great pictures, so definitely need some help in that area.

                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...
                I wonder if you are talking about the same girl I know about. I have her email address as I got it from my lingerie party host but havent followed up yet bc I was waiting to have my pics done when I lost more weight. I will look it up and post it on here for you ladies.....

                  So I just emailed another BD company and will give you gals the info when I get it.
                  As for TAIT and Sarah Pukin...I loved the pics Sarah did of Tanya however I want a 10x10 book and I want all of my pics retouched. So to pay $400 for a CD and then have to make a book on my own....well I just dont see myself having the time or enegery to do that. I saw Timberly's book (Vdaybride) and it took her a really long time to get it together and a lot of work too...I dont know if I want to do that.
                  If I go with Tait in total I would spend $700 to have my session with 20 pics and a 10x10 book. I dont know yet what Sarah charges for a 10x10 book, so I will email her too to find out more and see if she is more reasonable then TAIT.
                  Lots of different people to choose from...hopefully we all can narrow this down and soon.
                  Good luck ladies...

                  Oh and Tanya...your photos were fab!!

                      LIPSTICK AND LACE:

                      Ok so I spoke with Carla At Lipstick and Lace and I know many of you are trying to plan a session to bring down the costs. I wish I could do it now too but Im not ready, but I thought you guys might want so more info.

                      I got the breakdown of some of her packages and wanted to share:

                      The first package I requested info on was for her 8x10 album, which comes with 30 photos, retouched of course, and includes the session fee and comes to $835.00. She refers to Astrid Woodard for hair and makeup and she charges $150.00 plus gst.

                      The second package is for the 10x10 album, which comes with 20 pictures, and includes the session fee for $1071.00 plus tax. Both packages are available on her password protected gallery and she gives you 100-180 images to choose from.
                      There is a deposit of $150.00 which will be put towards your package when you arrive.
                      Pictures are usually ready within a few days to a week depending onhow busy she is. Once the pcitures have been chosen, it will take approx 2 -3 weeks to get your final album.

                      To purchase your photos on DVD is $300.00, however I am not interested in this option and Carla does not recommend it either.

                      PURE FORM SALON -

                      Liberty is the photgrapher and they do this out of their salon in DT calgary.
                      The only info I have so far is that they have a session fee of $195.00 which covers your 2 hour session. You will receive 75-100 images on a proof sheet that are touched up to choose from. I am waiting for liberty to call me back about costs for DVD's and books. Will update when I hear from her.

                      As for makeup and hair - well ther is no set fee - its all dependant on the stylist you get - so thats a no go for me. If I go with liberty, I will be getting my hair and makeup done somwhere I can get a flat fee. Her website is : Pure-Form Salon and Studio - Home

                      Hope this helps some of you out!!!
