@TinkerSofi - I have the same thought. It's like, I really like e-photos and it's nice to have some professional photos of the two of you AND I've seen couples re-use the photos for several things. BUT at the same time, I would like to save the money and splurge on a great wedding photog and do a trash the dress session. So many decisions!!!


I love him & he loves me, we'll be married by the sea.

We are not doing eng photos but instead using pics we've accumulated through the years on our wedding website. We would rather use the money for something else.

    IMHO, not that really necessary but if you have a budget for that, why not.

    Not necessary. Do as you wish. I didn't do any. We always take pics and have so many of us together that we felt it unnecessary.

    Rather put that money elsewhere.

    I think they do end up looking really nice but I find they can be a little cheesy

    Definitely! I think it all goes in hiring the right photographer. However, those are always the expensive ones haha

    We didn't do official engagement pictures so to speak......my FI proposed in Cancun last year, while we were at a wedding there.  That resort offered resort credits and we used some of the resort credits for a photo shoot.  It was really nice to have some memories of our trip there since that is where he proposed.

    I've never really understood the importance of engagement photos.

     

    I personally would rather use photos from vacations that FI and I have taken together instead.

     

    To me it just seems like an unnecessary added expense... there's way too many ways to waste money when planning a wedding!!  You just gotta filter through everything and decide where you want your money to be spent.
