So tomorrow I’m having the first of two engagement sessions (this one is with a friend who wants to gain experience, the 2nd is included in the wedding package by our wedding photographer), and I’m really excited because we’ll be spending the afternoon in Boston taking pics at our favorite places!
It struck me this morning….what do I do with my purse? I’m going to be nowhere near the car, and we’re hanging out after the shoot is over in Boston.
Do I work it into the shot? Carry only my ID and let FI handle expenses? (Or is this all me convincing myself I should go buy a new purse to match? 🙂 )
I’m petite, and not a big purse kindof girl; my daily purse is a wristlet. Any advice would be appreciated!

I’d suggest NOT having a purse in the shots. Even a small purse might hinder the "love shots" you’re trying to get or prevent natural, close movements between you and your man.
Can you live w/ just ID, a credit card, a couple of $20s and lipstick? If so, stick it in your man’s pocket.

If you just have a wristlet, I think your photographer might be happy to stick it in their bag during the shoot. Just don’t forget they have it!

You said that this photographer is a friend so I’d just ask him or her to hold it or put it by their stuff. When we did ours with our friend, she carried her camera bag (actully two camera bags since my FI had his camera there for her to use too). Any time we stoped to take shots I just dropped my purse by the camera bag. Either that or I’d just throw my id, some money, and my lipstick in my pockets or FI’s pockets. Good luck and have fun! You’ll never kiss as much as you will during your engagement shoot. 🙂

An engagement photo session isn’t even something I’d ever really heard of before, but I want one!!! We live in PA, but our wedding and photographer are both in NY, and I can’t see us going up for a day just for that.. boo! I’ll just have to live vicariously through all of your stories

Thanks, ladies! I ended up putting the essentials in my pockets and had a blast in Boston.
