Has anyone done DIY Engagment Pics?
Posted 15 May 2009 - 09:52 AM
My FI and I decided not to do professional engagment pictures due to cost. I wasn't really too disappointed because I figured I wouldn't use them much anyway since we have a somewhat short engagment and a DW where I probably won't bring TOO many pics of us to decorate. I figured I'd just bring some cute ones from some of our vacations or something!
Well my FMIL and mom keep telling me they want some engagement pics so they can announce it in the paper. My FMIL said she'd like some for scrapbooking purposes too. I was thinking of having my MOH or bridesmaid just take some of us in a cute area and photo edit them myself.
Has anyone done this, and if so, would you mind sharing your engagement pics?

I didn't do this - but my girlfriend did and they turned out awesome...they just found different poses they liked on photographers blogs - and recreated them with a friend of theirs who just used a digital camera...they then used those to create their guestbook on snapfish...it was cute.
I also agree with Nam though - you could totally get a beginner photographer for free. A lot of them will do it because they can use the photos in their portfolio - they probably would be a lot better quality as well. I'd check out craigslist - maybe even post your own posting.

We are going to do engagement pics, but are going to have our picture savy friend to them at a local park instead and save the cash for the TTD to splurge alittle. I have a few poses in my head that would look nice. I have a daughter and he does as well, so we are going to have "family" pics, the girls separate and together, and then just the 2 of us. It gives me an excuse to dress up! lol
I agree with the other posts, to search amongst friends or even on craigs list if you would want to. With the help of that and chosing poses that look nice, you won't go wrong. Goog Luck!
