    K so I saw a couple of people giving their FI a book before the wedding and finally figured out what it is hahah. Anyways my questions is how can you make your own? Or can you? And how do you? If not where did you do yours? Any information helpful.

      Hi, most of the girls had their photos done professionally. Then I think some of them did their own books, but I think some mad their own. I would contact nurseSarah, Ann, Courtney, or Jessalyn. I'm sorry I don't remember all of their forum names. Also, do a search for BDR photos and you should be able to get more inf from that search. Good luck!! I'm sure someone else will answer better in the morning.

        i made one for a a client to give to her fiance at the dinner rehearsal.
        1. First get a friend of yours to take some shots of you in underware and sexy bra, some of the best poses are when thigns are left to your imgagination, if you type in boudiour photos on google you can get an idea of poses,
        2. but a kolo book that can fit 5x7's. aaron brothers has them for cheap- but the soldi black one-also pick up some old photo corners in black.
        3. have your printer or rite aid print them in sepia tone, add a border.
        4. put one picture on one side & write love notes on the other side to your fiance.
        wrap in a sexy red bow, a big one! Et voila !

        I got my photos done from Leigh Miller, but a lot of girls have looked around themselves for various photogs.
        They are professional photos and then either you can make your own book or create your own (which is what I did)

          I've been wondering about this too. Does anyone know of a Photography studio that does Boudoir Photography in the New Jersey/New York Area? This would be a really nice gift to give my FI on the day of the wedding.

              I am making my own BD book, I have tons of time to make one, so I decided to put my care and enegry into it. Plus, I think there is a certain feeling of satisfaction knowing what you've accomplished. It's an incredibly personal gift and I'd like to add more of my personal touch!

              I agree that you should be careful. There is a thread somewhere on here with a link to a photography site with some really great recommendations, I'll see if I can find it.

              I do happen to disagree about the male photographer. Of course, you should be completely comfortable. My photographer was Leigh Miller (California | New York | Worldwide) and she did a FANTASTIC job, but her "associate photographer" (or whatever they're called) was a male (Riccis: Riccis Valladares Photography). It took some thinking, but I eventually decided it wasn't that big of a deal. I think a male photographer may be able to bring another perspective, which could be beneficial.

              Also, Shea had her BD pictures done by Jonathan Thrasher, which are amazing!! Here's the thread: http://bestdestinati....s-bd-pics.html
