I think that’s okay! You can use them for your first Christmas card or something 🙂

You do not HAVE to do engagement pictures. They are a fairly new trend, one that will be sticking around for a while. Just liek everything wedding-related, you do not “have” to do anything.

If you want to do the shoot after your wedding, go for it. They’d just be “portraits” though, not an “engagement shoot”.

You don’t have to do engagement pictures. Since you won’t be able to do them until after the wedding, why not use them as a chance to get all dressed up again and get some more pictures together? Most people don’t get very many fun pictures on their wedding day due to a compact time line.

It’s fine but then you can’t call them engagement pictures.  Now they are “family pictures” 🙂

We didn’t get a chance to use our free engagement shoot before the wedding so we’ll be doing it some time over the winter. We’ll just keep them for us as we have very few pics of us or we may use them for a Christmas card – I kind of hate those though.

 

Anyway we made it through the whole wedding process just fine without e-pics, it wasn’t weird to anyone as not a single person asked about them.

I think that it is ok to do them after the wedding.  I would want the typical engagement shots to look back on and keep.  Go for it!

You don’t have to!! Is there an expiration on the Groupon? You could save it for your first anniversary!

@mayflowerbride13:  I hear that – we had wanted to use it for skating pics but the weather was a giant winter fail after we signed with our photographer in February!

We’re hoping to get some this winter but if not just any nice pictures of us will do. Like I said we don’t have many so any non wedding pro pics we can get will be fantastic! Have fun with it whatever you end up doing 🙂

No, I don’t think you need to have engagement pictures.  They are nice, but you can live without them.  We actually had a post-wedding photo shoot about a year and a half after the wedding.  It was fun and we have some really nice shots.  By the way, it is really cute that your father purchased this for you guys!
