Are engagement photos "worth it"?

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

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 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!

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
