      Great deal! Wish I could have gotten in on that.

       

      We did the custom photobook too (going to get people to sign it yearbook-style) through Photobook Canada, and at our AHR there will be lots of photos displayed everywhere; They are also on our wedding website, and a slideshow at our AHR. Picaboo had a good groupon on a while ago, so I made some calendars for 2013 for our parents, etc., and those engagement pics were featured heavily throughout. 

       

      I wish I would have found those Michaels frames though!

        I just received our engagement photos and I'm thinking of making a photo guestbook from shutterfly.

        We used our engagment photos as our table numbers for our reception. I had them printed in black and white on a 5x7 frame, and then added a decorative number!

        We sent out save the dates in January and had E-pics done in May.  I used our engagement pics for Thank you cards for my showers that I made on shutterfly and then used the pics to help create our photo guestbook for the wedding along with other pics of the 2 of us over the past 7 1/2 years! :)

          Awww I wanted to have an E-session and include our dog. You can use them at the reception for a slideshow, or frame a few of them and use them as table numbers, or hang them in a line as guests are coming in to sign the guestbook etc.

            We might forego an E-session unless I can find a cheap one on Living Social. I have seen deals in the past for $99 but there are usually restrictions on locations and dates etc. I wanted to do them along the Bronx River Parkway- there is a park with bridges over water and picturesque scenes and we can include our beloved dog (we already added her to our cake topper...we wanted her to be our flower girl :( ). Right now, an E-session is not in our budget, but I am hoping to secure a second job on the weekends to pull in some extra funds. My friend who recently got married said the E-session was the most fun part of the process for her. 

             

            Initially I wanted to use the pictures in photo cubes on the tables as table numbers, but they don't fit in with the rest of our decorations. I want to incorporate pictures from our courtship somehow because we have many great ones from travels and our HS prom! I will find a way to sneak em in lol 

             

            But there are many uses for the E session photos- and they are so nice. I have not seen any E-sessions I have not liked. It gives you a chance to show your personality.

              I scheduled my e session via Livingsocial in January, so I will let you know how it's going. It is cost effective for me. Every little bits of saving counts!

                I was on the fence on whether or not we would have engagement photos taken. Since we are bringing out photographer with us we decided to do an e-session to get to know her before. I'm glad we did because she is awesome and we will have those photos forever. I personally think having photos you love is something you will never regret.

                  That's a good idea.  Use the e-session as a test to see if you like the photographer's style before using him/her for your big day!
