Oh, have you gotten yours yet? I imagine your turned out super smokin' by the looks of your siggy pics girl! How many do you get to pick out to be in your coffee table (tee hee, can you imagine going to a friend/family's house and seeing a book like this out? hot damn, can a sista get something stronger than coffeehuh.gif) book or are you going the route of putting your own together? I've seen that a few of the girls on this forum put their own together and while I commend that, I know myself and I wouldn't do it justice like a professional would but definitely commend those who put the work into theirs.

Since I'm touting her [photographer's] work, I'll definitely get over myself and post a couple so that anyone who's interested can see her work. I'm wondering if I'll blush like mad and a wave of modesty will hit me when I actually see the pics of myself in print though. Get over it... right? ((deep sigh))

Anyway, it is a great experience and I'm glad I did it. I recomend it to everyone even girls that aren't really in shape like myself. You would be surprised how good you can look at certain angles.

Also another tip I want to throw out (and sorry if I'm being a hijacker) is go to Sephora for your make up. They did a great job on mine and it's free. They are not even allowed to accept tips. You are just encouraed to buy some of their products so I bought make up that I will wear for the wedding.
Wait, why didn't it work? did you try using a photo hosting service? Seems like you should be able to upload it to photobucket maybe and post? no? Did you love the teaser pic? And amen to the angle work. Yep.

(btw, you're not hijacking at all. Actually, I just wanted to bring up the topic again to bring light to how amazing it can feel to have a really good BD session no matter how you really feel about your figure).

Geez thanks...blush2.gif I'm super pumped to see them. I still can't decide what to do for the book though. Thankfully I have some time before the wedding to figure out if I want to make my own or have the photog throw it together. I had about 7 different outfits/shots so I should have more that enough to choose from! I'm debating like you about the book part. I want it to turn out super good quality and I'm just scared mine wouldn't do the pictures justice like you said. We'll see! Morgan put together a nice book that she posted yesterday I think that looked amazing.......

Again, I'm way behind on the ball here but don't need any bad forum non-sharing Karma so I'm going to post a few of my BD pics from my session in the Northern VA area (again, Genevieve Lepier was my photographer and she was great, I'd definitely recommend her). I just got the CD a few days ago (I had to select them off of an online picture site which was right click disabled from copying the pictures and password protected... comforting actually). Here are a few of them just so you can get a feel for her photography. GREAT experience as many others have already said.

Btw, I had my maid of honor deliver the present the night before the wedding and take pics of his reaction and it was worth every_dollar!

Claudia you look beautiful. I am hoping that I can do some pregnancy photos possibly, so I am going to bookmark her site now.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
