They're nice to have, but I definitely don't think they're necessary. We didn't have them taken and I don't feel like I missed out on anything. If they were free, yeah, I'd do them, but I wouldn't be super disappointed if I didn't get to take them.

That's the route we are taking...we are not going to take them because we'll be doing TTD.

If the pics are free, then go for it!!

Engagement photos are TOTALLY worth it! I love love love mine, and used them in various aspects of wedding planning. I.e. in the passport invites, in the save the dates, and they are a nice keepsake for your family too!

Hey ladies,

I know my FI doesn't want to - but I told him he can get a new outfit out of it, and I have been buttering him up slowly. I think he's coming around, he just doesn't understand the concept and doesn't know how lucky we are to have a talented photog (freelance) as a close friend who is willing to do this for free. Even if I get 1 hour out of him I'm sure we could get quite a few nice ones. I think you guys are right, he's just going to have to suck it up. I'm really not a demanding person, so I think he should feel lucky that I'm not asking for much - and I'm planning almost the entire thing! Thanks for the support.

I was in the exact same situation! A good friend of ours istrying to build her business and add to her portfolio so she offered to do them for free. If we like her work, she wants to do our wedding photos as well since she'll be a guest at our wedding. We just met with yesterday and did some really fun shots around downtown and in a park by the river. Since she is a friend, she was so easy to work with and we were completely comforatable. She sent me a few "previews" today and they are SO fantastic! I am SO glad we did them. They are absolutely worth it!!

How can you turn down free?! wink.gif

 

I felt the same way, what's the point? Right until my photographer told me he'd throw mine in for free as well... then I said, what the heck!

 

I did mine yesterday in Downtown LA, 104 degree heat inside Union Station, no AC. So it was uncomfortable but I had SO much fun I'm shocked at how amazing the experience is. It's photos of us young and in our 20's I'm going to love showing my kids and grandkids one day and it was free.

 

I say if you can convince him to just have fun with it then definitely go for it!

I just had ours done and am getting married in 2 months. So there is not right or wrong time to do them.

 

My FI 1000000% did not want to do them. He hates having pictures taken.

 

I just signed us up anyways then promised him that it would take about an hour, we photographed them near our house, basically as easy and as little work for him as possible. He "tried" to just get through it during the shoot and was pretty miserable about it the whole time and when it ended told me there was NO WAY he would do a TTD now. That is all I get.

 

BUT THEN WE GOT THE PICS and.........

 

He freaking loved them, and is now excited for the wedding pics and TTD. So it was painful but well worth it :)

LOL!!! I am having the same argument with my FI, I showed him some TTD shots yesterday and his response was "we are NOT doing that! I don't want the whole vacation to be a photo shoot" little does he know that we ARE doing it, but I think getting him to do ttd and engagement is a little much. If your FI is anything like mine then he will probably be reluctant to do both, but maybe because they are so far apart and it is FREE then he will be amenable to it. IDK the new outfit bribe is brilliant! Just keep saying how happy it will make you and he will come around.

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
