FI and I have never had nice photos of us done and I would love to get engagement photos done soon! However, my mom and cousion both seem to think I shouldn’t get them done until closer to the actual wedding. The thing is I want some now for framing and using on our wedding website, save the dates, etc etc. Is this stupid? depending on how I like the pics I may or may not want a second e-photo session.
I found some photogs on groupon and CL for >$75 for a 45min session, is 45mins enough time? How long was your session??

@MrsJBaggett: We just got our engagement pictures back, and our session was an hour long. We ended up with 130 pictures. I think if you want them done now, get them done. We honestly didn’t have much to put on our wedding website and it would have been nice to have professional pictures up there sooner.

We took E-pics twice, the first during the summer (10 months before our wedding) then again in the begining of fall (8 months before our wedding). Both times we spent around 2 1/2 hours. We ended up with a lot of great shots to choose from for our website, book, and save the dates!!!!

- Wedding: September 2014 - Waldorf Astoria, Chicago
We took about 3 hours, that included running home between our two locations to change and get through traffic in Chicago to the 2nd location. so probably just over 2 hours of actually shooting photos. We ended up with around 100 photos, 40 of which I found acceptable to post on FB, and 80 that I downloaded to keep, we will have 4 of the photos professionally printed to hang in our home 🙂
