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.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
