    We got engagement pic just so that we have "formal" picture of ourselves where we aren't gussied up for the wedding. Looking back - I think we paid way too much for what we got, but we got a good shot for our enagement announcement in the newspaper and used the pictures as part of our engagement announcement we sent out to family and friends.

      I'm not sure if we'll have them since my FI hates spending money.

      We've been considering it, but we're not totally sure. It seems like a personal decision as to whether or not you want them. We'd rather go out for a few nice dinners and drinks and just have the wedding photos. We're spending quite a bit on the wedding photographer and in the end I think those are the images that we'll look back on the most.

        I have a lot of friends that have had their parents or other friends take their engagement pictures. I am not doing it. We have a gazillion pictures of the two of us anyway! My Cousin and his wife took a bunch of pictures they had of them together and put them in small frames for favors on the tables. I thought that was a cute idea.

            We did. You can use them on your STD, newsletter, or most importantly your BDW Siggy!

              We're not getting any done either! Agree with most of you ladies that we already have tons of pics of us to use for save-the-dates, so don't really see any need in spending the $$$.

                We aren't doing them either! I decided we already have a ton of pictures... and would rather put the money toward something else.

                  We have a bunch of pictures together, but usually we are not spruced up. So I was excited to take some pictures where we looked a little fancier. We just went around Duke campus & gardens with a friend who took the pictures. They aren't pro or anything. He just used my little digital camera. But, I have enjoyed having the pictures. I used them for our STDs & other things.
