    I'm on the fence about this, but leaning more towards no TTD session. While I think it's a creative idea and all the pictures I've seen have been beautiful, I'm just not sure if I even want to do it. I have plenty of time to think about it, so who knows what the final decision will end up being.

      I feel the same way you do. The pics of others are GORGEOUS, but I just don't think it's right for us. And that's ok of course. to each their own.

(I mean, we're cute and all, just not in I'd-like-to-be-photographed-half-naked-under-water-shape) There's no way my fiance and I would even be able to keep a straight face, b/c we know it would look ridiculous. And who would we show the photos to? No one wants to see two chub-a-dubs rolling around in the sand with wet clothes trying to be sexy. I promise you...NO ONE wants to see that.

        I love ttd photos. I bought a second dress for it because I am having an at home reception where I will be wearing my real wedding dress. I bought it at thelimited.com when they had their 40% off sale i think it came to about $50.

            I think that my FI will appreciate a boudoir session more than a TTD session, not worth the money imo, but if you love it and can afford it then do it!

              I'm doing a TTD shoot... I'm (FI is too) actually looking forward to it just as much as the wedding.  I'm going to use my real dress too!

                At first I wasn't sure as I definitley can't afford to buy 2 dresses, but this thread changed my mind!  These pics are so amazing and like many of you said, it really doesn't "trash" the dress anymore than normal wear & tear on your wedding day/night. 

                 

                Question though - is it that much more expensive to add on? I haven't even begun to look at photographers yet as I still haven't picked my resort, but will definintely want to include.  Especially since we havent and dont plan on doing engagement pictures.

                 

                Thanks again!!!

                  It really depends on the photographer. Some photographers have packages that include it, since so many brides like it.

                  Mine is not including it in a package, but he includes a videographer, so we are just shuffling plans. The only places we were spending money not part of our wedding package was photos and a video (and attire), so it is worth it in our minds. The worst part is adding on another day pass for our photographer. 

                  We didn't do regular engagement shots either. FI's mom used to be a photographer; she took a few pictures for us in the woods by their home. I am going to get my mom or sister to take some on my parents' farm too, but neither has any photography experience, so I am sending them a bunch of pictures for inspiration and just going to cross my fingers.

                  I just think, you can always get pictures taken together. When else can you take pictures in the ocean and on the beach together in your wedding clothes?

                    "You can always get pictures taken together" - so TRUE!!!

                     

                    and my FI's step-mom is a photography teacher at a local high school, so I contemplated asking her to take some engagement shots, just havent yet.  FI broke his foot the day after christmas, so we've been dealing with that situation ...
