    So, as you may know FI and I are moving to AZ this week. We haven't done our engagement pics yet, and were planning to wait until spring time and then head out to our old stomping grounds (aka bar where we met!) for some picutres. however, now that we're moving this is going to be much harder. Plus I don't get vacation time at my new job until 6 months in...

    So, now we're thinking about doing our engagement pics right before the wedding in Mexico. However, I'm not sold on this. I think it would be really fun and they would turn out great, but at the same time I had my heart set on pics of us at out hole in the wall bar.

    What would you do? Make it work in Mpls or do the Mexico thing?

      I added a poll for you, Tara.

      I voted going back to where it all started. I think that really adds to the pictures and the story the images are suppose to tell. Then again, Aaron and I had our pictures done in Mexico and they were a BLAST to do. We met on the internet though, so our pictures from our roots would have been boring! lol

        I forget, where are you moving in AZ (what city?). There are some really cool landscapes in AZ that might be great for engagement pics.

          We're moving to Phoenix. I asked our photog about coming to Phoenix (on us obviously) and she kinda skirted around the question. She's preggo so I'm not sure if she feels comfortable traveling....

            Personally, I think I would either make it work for MN, or I would find a cool place in AZ. I think I would feel odd doing the engagments pics right before the wedding...you know?

            If you can't make it out the Mpls...and I totally understand why you'd want to do that, I'm sure that would be my preference too!...then the upside is that AZ DOES have some gorgeous places to take cool pics. AND it's also your first big adventure together! Your first place that's totally new to both of you etc. MIght be cool to have some pics of that.

              I totally agree! However, I'm not sure that I want to fork out more $ for a photog, since ours won't come to AZ to do the engagement pics.

                Ohhhh....gotcha! I didn't realize you already had that booked/payed for etc. That does throw a wrench in the works! lol! Is there any random holiday coming up that you guys might have off...you could sneak away to MN? Like MLK day or President's day something?

                  OH, I see, you've already paid for the photos to be taken. Then in that case, I agree w/Rachelle...try to get back on a long weekend to do the pics in the bar! Yes. Definitely.

                    I think if you can, you should try to find a way to get back to Minneapolis to do them. It sounds like that's what you have your heart set on and it would be cool to do it in a place that means so much (where you first met).

                      If you can't fit the pics in before you leave then maybe you can fly in and out for a day or two over a weekend to take them if she won't come to AZ. That way you won't have to take off work and not lose out on getting the pics taken.
