Devon and I are really fighting with the idea of having engagement pictures done. Neither of us like having our picture taken; we actually both rather despise it, so we really think we might not do them.
We said this to a couple of friends of ours and they were like, “no you have to! You need the pictures for Save The Dates and announcements and invitations” and all this other stuff. And Devon and I are both pretty much just:
Engagement photos are a relatively new thing; like our parents didn’t do them, people who got married before like 2005 didn’t do them and they managed to send out things without pictures or with pictures they already have and like, so why can’t we do that.
I mentioned it to another friend and she’s like, “well I see your point but it is a nice time to get accustomed to your photographer and actually see their work before your wedding”. And of course, that makes sense to me.
AND IT MADE ME QUESTION EVERYTHING!
It totally makes sense to do a “dry run” before the wedding….but….I still really don’t care about having actual engagement photos done.
Give me some of your experiences. Did you do engagement photos? Did you not? Did you regret not doing them if you opted out?
