Are Engagement Pictures Really Necessary?

Recommended Posts

@@calgarybride2015 I think it's great that you found someone with such good prices! It's too late for us now but that would have been nice. My Fiance hates taking pictures so we don't have that many, only when we go on vacation. The one I have as my profile picture is actually from someone else's wedding and we didn't even know they were taking it haha, we were just dancing :)

Thankfully my fiance doesn't.   This guy we found has openings in September so we lucked out. I want the pictures by October for our pre-travel letter I am mailing out around Halloween.    I am debating early or late September at this point.

 

This is who we chose www.gathcityphotography.com

 

His work looks nice, and again, price point was huge! so it's this or nothing! lol!

I agree that this is something that isn't necessary but it is nice to have - especially if you just don't have many nice pics together. My fiancé proposed during what I thought was a regular photo session in Dominican Republic - so those are our engagement photos. This was great since the emotion was real and it was a surprise. Had this done been done this way, I most likely wouldn't go out of my way to get engagement photos taken with having to pay for a wedding!

So remember the gym friend I mentioned earlier who I just couldn't afford? Well, I booked the other one this evening and went FB snooping to see if he had a page, etc.  Well who is his mutual friend on FB? HER!!! OMG!!! I feel bad enough I am not using her and now they are friends.

Flip side makes me feel more confident with my choice and that he isn't going to run with our money, but wow! small world!

I went for photos last night!    Had to change the date due to the kids schedule -- it spitted some, but the rain never came and it was pretty great!  We did them at Confederation Park (Calgary brides).   He was great to work with, and after the initial embarrassment we really got into it.   We did a mix of us, family, and kids. He was great.   I have to assume from what he showed us the pictures will be great. I will post a few in a couple weeks when I get them :)  Good practice for wedding shots.

If we had the money and liked our weights we would have done some but we decided against them because the fiancée hates pics and we didn't want to spend the extra cash and we also were planning to lose a lot of weight before our wedding so we didn't feel comfortable taking engagement pics at our weights at the time. I would've liked them had none of these factors played a role lol.

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
