Each to their own, however please don't do what a relative did and put the boudoir shots into the wedding album and hand it over to elderly relatives to look at without a warning.

My poor mum saw a lot more than she wanted to ohmy.gif blink.gif

We had friends show us a wedding album with some lingerie shots of the bride - my poor husband didn't know where to look! It was a bit weird - she is probably one of the most conservative people I know.

My cousin has a boudoir-type shot as her profile pic on Facebook! We did a house inspection where there was one on the bedroom wall once.

Absolutely not for me. If I ever wanted anyone who knows me to die laughing I could consider it I guess!

I would definitely get them done if we had the spare money, but not for a wedding or any other reason than just because. If they are tastefully done then they can be beautiful photos.

I don't mind tastefully done ones, but wouldn't be doing it myself.

I remember the bride that Megs mentioned - her ones were nice, buy again just not what I'd do personally.

Definitely not up on walls in the house or in the wedding album wacko.gif ick

I'd never heard of it before this thread but TBH I'm not shocked that it's done.

If money were no issue I'd consider it a great thing to get done. I think of it in the same category as Trash the Dress shoots.. Definitely an extravagance and not an essential, but if uv got some extra time & money, why not?

I'm not overly comfortable with my body but I do have some assets & I know my DH finds me attractive so I know he would love it.

Having said all that, I probably couldn't justify spending big money it, but again if money was no issue than I wouldn't need to worry about it! tongue.gif

I am not into lingerie shots but tastefully done nude shots don't phase me at all.

I agree that they shouldn't be in a wedding album...but as something private for the groom to enjoy, why not? wink.gif

My sister has some beautiful, very artistic nude shots of her and hubby framed and in her bedroom. They are black and white and bit surreal in style...they have been creatively photoshopped playing with repeating images. They a fascinating, gorgeous shots. So, yeah, I think nude portraiture can be very beautiful and tasteful if done right.

I think if they're done tastefully then they can be nice, but I don't think they're for me. I'm not sure I would want pictures like that of me displayed on the wall, and if I didn't display them it would be a waste of money.

In saying that, it would be fun getting dressed up smile.gif

Ditto Lib. I'd be more for the Sweetie type shots, with a few Sensual, but not really Provocative.
