    Did you girls get Disks with your pics? I have found a new photographer but most don't want to include the disks. As a graphic design this is a deal breaker for me.
    I got a disk for mine, that would totally be a dealbreaker for me!

      Were you guys able to get help getting into your outfits? Just curious some of those bustiers are not easy to get into... lol I have a black really sexy bustier with a million hooks at the back for closure. I can do it if I have to but help may be nice!

          She actually didn't do a disc, she zipped all the pics and also uploaded them onto an ordering site that was $.29 for 4x6. Not bad, I printed them all and duplicates of the ones for the album. I will have the zip file forever, so that to me was enough. My engagment photos are on disc, which I agree makes it much easier.

              Thanks Melissa & finley! Yeah, the blue backdrop is sort of a given, since the photog I went to specializes in pin-ups. I like it too; the shots really pop off that background. My friends who dressed as 50's housewives, teachers, etc used that too. The "danger" was a corner in the basement of her building.

              I do like them, but I want some of the more soft BD styles too. I think I'll like having some of both in a book so I'm really excited to go to Jen next week & have her work her magic! eek! nervous too!

                  I also had a friend like KH, but she (the photographer) helped me as well. At one point all three of us were trying to hook the garter onto the thigh highs...I couldn't do the back =)

                  By mid shoot I was topless (in jeans only), with a hand covering in shots, so you get completely comfortable. They'll help...

                    Hahaha man those corsets are tough! I needed help putting my shoes on after the corset, I couldn't even bend over. I ended up topless with my arm covering myself and then.... no covering. Then ended up with just heels and thigh highs on at one point so yes you do get comfortable, with the help of booze of course :)
