Are Engagement Pictures Really Necessary?

Recommended Posts

OMG he did a fantastic job and I am smiling from ear to ear!

Just have to figure out where I should post them :)

I'm so glad you're happy with them :). You can make a gallery on your profile and put them there!

We sort of did engagement photos-we wanted one for our Save the Date. We got engaged in the Bahamas, and did a really fun excursion SUBing-Scenic Underwater Bubble.

 

 

At the end of our excursion the dive company had photos of us for sale for $15, and we decided to use our photo as our "engagement photo".

They aren't necessary. But, we vacationed to Riviera Maya in September. We got pictures taken by the resort photographer we only bought 3, pictures at $15 each. We used one for our save the dates, return labels, and on our website

We also bought pictures when we went zip lining and atving. We put those pics on our website as well

I have no idea re resort credits. Don't think my resort does that. A group excursion would be fun - like a catamaran booze cruise.

We did not do engagement pictures. We had originally planned to but ran out of time. Plus, we knew that we would be engaged for about 2 years before we got married, so that would be a long time in between engagement to the wedding stuff that would get sent out.

I guess It depends on how you value their lives, it is a bit selfish thinking just on us, because pictures are for our children too, aunts, parents, brothers, we never know what will happen tomorrow. each stage in our lives must be remembered by us and others, I delightful enjoy browse through an photo album, memories come back  and I live again, I know amazing stories how just a photo brought joy to a new family  and also know how a lack of pictures made my Grandfather life totally unknown by me, I wish I had just some pictures of my Grand father.

 

So if you just look for someone that can click the button, then It will be almost the same story, but If you find a photographer with great vision and skills to catch your personality then you will have the best pictures to remember you

 

we do not know what's coming don't be selfish

I don't think they are all that necessary, but I think they are really nice to have. I'm not the biggest fan of pictures of myself, but I do really love the formal/professional pictures we have taken. I think in general, they are nice to have.

    • 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!!!
