Engagement Photos. Should I get them?
Is engagement photography worth adding to the budget? I personally believe it is, because these photographs captures your relationship at a very fun, exciting, and flirty time. A time when its just the two of you, when life is all about your love, and being together. Its a very precious time, that may not change right after marriage, but may change after having children or other life changes. Overall, this documentation shows your "starting point" as a couple. Practically, the images are great to use for save-the-dates, announcements, invitations, RSVP cards, guest book, to include as prints or images on your wedding, and for images or keepsakes for your home. While it gives you a chance to work with your photographer, learning how the photographer works, posing tips, and to genuinely feel more comfortable in front of the camera.
Please ask yourself and your fiance, when was the last time you had a professional photography session? The most 2 common answers are: 1. Never 2. Not since high school senior photos. That is totally okay! But this gives you and your fiancé the practice to feel comfortable and natural in front of the camera.
