We are doing our engagement photo shoot in a couple of months. My fiance and I thought about doing the photos at our venue since we are wanting to do it in an open field and the woods which the property has. I don’t think we would do any pictures in front of the house because we would do that on the wedding day. I’ve seen pictures of other couples doing engagement photos at the venue, but our photographer suggested to not do this because we would get so many pics on the wedding day.

No. I didn’t even think about that. That would’ve been amazing to do though. That’s such a great idea!

I’d rather have a variety of settings for my pictures, but I can see the benefit of doing it at the venue. As long as you like the idea, I would go for it!

I have a set of clients who want to do this later in the year and I really do not understand it. Even if the property is huge it both sets of photos are going to have the exact same feel to them.

- Wedding: July 2012 - Parkwood International Golf Course
I think it’s a great idea. I had a different photographer for my engagement and wedding photos so it would have been interesting to see the difference in photos at the same location. I wish I had thought of this 😀
Also, after the wedding I was kind of sad that we missed out on some photo opportunities at our venue. They had a mini golf course which would have made for fun photos.
I think if you try to take engagement photos in places at your venue which are least likely to be used for the wedding photos it would turn out amazing and you would get the best out of the venue.
Plus who deosn’t like to redo certain photos! It would be awesome to have an engagement photo and wedding photo with the same pose and place.

We did a couple in front of the church. I wanted to be able to have side by side pics of us in everyday clothes and then in our wedding attire. My FI had the idea to do one of us holding the doors to the church about to walk in in our normal clothes and then we’ll get one walking out of the church in our wedding clothes. I thought it was a cute idea, and I hope it turns out.
