I don't think they are necessary. Can't you use some of your favorite pics you already have together for your site? Or if you really want new ones but don't want to spend money, can you find a friend with a good camera to snap some shots. Or, I bet if you went to a college you could find a student to do it as practice for like $50

I did them because we didn't have many good pictures of us together. Just those iPhone pics when out for the night. But I made sure to get enough pics of us, kids, and family to make it worth it. We only spent $200 though. Don't regret it for a minute.

If we hire a photographer for the wedding from our hometown then I think we will do a session....more than anything just to test them out and get to know their work.
