Bees, I’m super impatient to get engaged and SO told me it’s gonna happen when we go to visit my family. I live in a differnt country.. and I saw this photographer’s work he did for several of my friends… Right away I loved his work.
So even I am not engaged yet and we are going to spend two weeks at my family’s place and get engaged at some point there, I have already booked this photographer for the end of my stay there!
I didn’t say this to my SO yet because I try not to put any more pressure on him… I hope he proposes before I booked photographer, and that he like my idea and this suprise! I thought we can have engagement photos done right away and in the place where we get engaged… because we won’t be in my hometown for at least two years.
Please give me some thoughts 🙂

How about instead of looking at these as Engagement pics…..say to your SO…..”Hey baby….we dont have very many professional pictures of us and i LOVE this photographer and i just got a great deal on doing some pictures while were home! Wouldnt that be fun….maybe we can use him later on as well”
that way you dont come off as a wackado in “hey i know were not engaged but i just booked a photographer to do our engagement photos on x day….”which would be really off putting….
i think if you go the first way it may even give him a cute op to do it during or right before…..either way…..maybe back off the these are engagement pictures idea….if they turn into them great….if not then you can still get some smashing photos with your SO….and can use them as like christmas cards or something…..
i just strongly caution you on saying you booked ENGAGEMENT photos before your engaged……esp to your SO…..
