      hey! another UK bride!! wahhoooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      ah wow, I wanted to do FYEO - it was one of their adverts that got me thinking about it to start with, but it was just too expensive for me. I shopped around - for AGES - and found this photog, Amy Symons. She has a studio in London and one in Folkstone and her packages were much more suitable for my budget. I have been having loads of emails with her and she's been the person who's made me feel most comfortable about doing it and most importantly, without even talking to her I feel comfortable already :)

      so yours is about 2 weeks after mine!! mine is 2 weeks from today!!!! I've been working out for about 6 weeks now and more seriously in the past 2 weeks but I haven't lost any weight. I have changed shape and loads of people have said I've lost weight but the scales don't agree. But that's fine, as long as I look better, I don't care what the scales actually say.

      I've got:

      - white corset, stockings, garter etc for my bridal shots
      - England football top with 'Mrs Day' on the back and a mini football (probably will wear with just french knickers and maybe stockings)
      - i'm taking my FI's favourite LBD (I don't wear it out as it's soooo figure hugging I wouldn't have the guts, so thought this could be an ideal opportunity!)
      - I need to get one of his shirts
      - got a white feather boa (just cheap from Claire's Accessories) which looks fab (definitely check it out for your jewellary props)

      I still need to get a corset and knicker set (black) for the more sexy/sultry poses and I'm not having much luck with that one - I need a set as I'm hopeless at matching things myself.

      my white corset was from ebay and yes it's cheap, but I still think it will look good in the pics and then I'll probably throw it away anyway!

      Good luck for your new job too!

              These are the packages she offers for Folkstone shoots (which is where I'm going to - the cost is cheaper than the cost of travel there, and as they say, 'every little helps'!)

              Deluxe London Boudoir Shoot with Prints-
              *A two hour shoot against different sets and backdrops in an unlimited number of outfits
              * A set of eight 9x6, fully retouched prints, chosen from your personal, secure online gallery
              £220

              Deluxe London Boudoir Shoot with Album -
              *A two hour shoot against different sets and backdrops in an unlimited number of outfits
              *A beautiful professional album in black containing your choice of twelve fully retouched images in 7x5 size, framed within black overlays
              £370

              Deluxe London Boudoir Shoot with Large Album -
              *A two hour shoot against different sets and backdrops in an unlimited number of outfits
              *A beautiful professional album in black containing your choice of twenty-four fully retouched images in 10x8 size, framed within black overlays
              £520

              For an extra treat why not add....
              * Make-up and Hairstyling Session before your shoot, with a professional make-up artist
              £60

              * Extra, fully retouched, 9x6 prints - £12*each (Other sizes available)

              * A CD of all the images in your gallery (50-100) + chosen retouched images -£100

              I live in Orpington in Kent so will just drive to Folkstone to have the shoot. I will probably go with the lowest priced package (they all include retouching) and then add some photos to that, and then put them in an album myself. I'll pay to have my make up done too as this is something nearly every b2b has advised as the pics come out tons better.

              Well if you're bored on the 24th, pop along!!

              Your job change sounds life-changing, a brave but very inspiring thing to do...GOOD LUCK! Let me know how your first day goes!

              xx

                  GOOD LUCK for your last day!!!! and good luck for your outfit shopping tomorrow! you'll have loads of fun looking for things.

                  Try to get an idea of what outfits/poses you want to do before you go so you can take a shopping list of everything you need to get to pull off all the different outfits...I found it MUCH easier!

                  Let me know how you get on :)

                    Hi,

                    I was on the fence about doing this but I think I am sold! You all look amazing. I live in the Philly area, anyone know of a good photographer around here?
