@LadyMoriarty:  I haven’t done them myself, per se. But we have a friend who was (at the time) going to school for photo journalism, so she took them for us for free. I imagine you have a friend or two that’s decent with a camera… or has at least used one before lol 🙂 I think that having someone take the photos for you (even if it’s not a professional) will help the quality of photos–get you more candid photos of the two of you relaxing & enjoying each other’s company, rather than just posing.

@LadyMoriarty:  Hmm even if you offer them a free dinner/beers/etc.? You live in CA – there has to be plenty of struggling “artists” out there looking to get experience and make a quick buck, no? LOL

I was actually thinking about doing this. Part of me thinks engagement photos are fun but a waste of money
