    Well the ones I have contacted are almost $200 just for the session.  Hair and make-up extra of course.  And then the prints are like a 10 page album for $400-$500.  Really?  Just 10 friggin photos!!  If I wanted one more photo its like $50.  If I just wanted digital it was like 100 images for $1500 and all images for $2500!!!  WTF!!  That is what I am spending on my wedding photographer.  You can't even compare the two.  Gosh its frustrating.

     

    So I do have options....my mom is a photographer but not good at shooting people.  And then my sister's bf has been into erotica photography for quite some time but I just don't know if that is ok.  I think I'd feel uncomfortable.  I think I'd rather it be a stranger LOL!!  I think that besides saving so much money going with one of these options the benefit is that I will have access to every single picture taken of me and I can do whatever I want with them.

        Hey ladies!

         

        Well I looked into pricing last night and you're all right....it's high!  I've seen some packages for $250 - 500 that include hair, make up and then the photos.  BUT if you want them to edit the photos she charges you per picture (lol and yes I have a "trouble" spot here and there that I wouldn't mind touched up )

         

        I'd rather get the pictures and then do the book myself through MyPublisher....lol although I wonder what they'd think of seeing these pics ;-)

         

        I'm going to hunt around to see if there are any Boudior Marathon's happening because it tends to be a bit cheaper then.  I'm going to assume more will pop up in Dec/Jan in time for valentine's day....fingers crossed!

          I did think about that, but my MoH and BM both live out of town and rarely come here (or me to them) without FI. Honestly, I am very comfortable with getting my picture taken by strangers, but I would feel uneasy posing like that in front of them. Weird, huh? And I do not know if I feel okay asking any of my other friends to do it either.... I will try and think of someone though... because I know that would indeed be easier!

            I totally know what you mean!  I'd feel much more comfortable with a stranger too.

                OK - quick question, when do you lose the self conciousness during this shoot?  I think it would show on my face....

                  Thank goodness I am not the only one! I was beginning to worry about myself!

                    What about a watch with your wedding date on the back! :)
