I’m very much on the fence about getting engagement pics done, mostly based on budget (it would save us $500 to take them out of our package). The only reason I’m still considering the extra expense is that I would love to get them done in our small NYC studio apartment. We know that we won’t be living in NYC forever and I think it would be special to have nice pictures of us in our first home together (and with our pup!) for sentimental reasons.
I’m also more drawn to a photojournalistic/documentary style and I think it would be really cute to get pics of us fake washing the dishes and fake making dinner. Is that weird?
I’d love to see some examples of engagement pictures done at home or that show a “day in the life” story of you and your FI! Also, would love to know if you thought your engagement pics were worth the extra expense or not. Thanks bees!

Following this, I REALLY want our photographer to take a picture or two of us in our NYC apartment as well. We met here, and it is our first home, and also I think the pictures would be gorgeous.

We did engagement pics with the intention of sending out save-the-dates (which we later decided against since it was an unnecessary expense). We did ours at a local park but I’m glad we did them since it gave us a chance to work with our photographer and we ended up using the photos to make a guestbook for our wedding reception.
We did our maternity photos at home though, and it was a little more difficult to get great lighting but it was wonderful to be in the comfort of our own home. We did the newborn photos at home as well 🙂
I think the “Day in the Life” theme is really cute! I think it will turn out wonderfully, you will get a chance to work with your photographer, and you’ll have some great shots of you as a couple.
