We had an engagement session done back in April, only because I found a photographer offering a FREE engagement session so that she could build her portfolio.  We have only seen 4 of the pictures but so far they came out cute.  We’re planning a “real” engagement shoot in 2 weeks with our first pick for wedding photographers, just to make sure we enjoy working with her and like her style. 

It’s nice because the free pictures were in the city and our actual engagement session will be near the beach so we’ll have 2 types of pictures.  We plan to make a guest book with them and have a slideshow of them during cocktail hour…

@xnlb41084: We’re doing a guest book with ours too! And Save-The-Date Cards, and maybe table numbers…. I am determined to use the crap out of our epics. ๐Ÿ˜€

My SIL is a photographer and graphic artist, so she will be doing mine.  She wanted to do some this spring, but I want to wait until the fall because we have a beautiful lake with lots of wooded areas that I’m sure will be gorgeous.  Also, I want her to take some really early spring next year.  Part of the reason is I’m also doing weight watchers and would like to loose some more weight before these pictures happen.

My Fiance and I are both wanting to lose some weight before we go for the engagement pictures so we are going to wait until after the summer. Probably in August. We’ve started dieting and are doing good so far ๐Ÿ™‚

  We haven’t decided that yet. I’m going out to visit him on Friday, and that is one of the things we need to pin down. He isn’t a huge fan of the engagement pics! These things are a bit harder to plan with him living out of town right now :-(.

  It’s hard to believe that we’re all basically a year away!! Eeee!!!

We had one round already, but we’re gonna high-jack (ok, maybe not actually high-jack it, we WILL ask first, lol) a friend’s filming this fall and do some photos with the characters (who are also friends of ours).  

There’s one shot I REALLY REALLY REAAAAALLY wanna have that my Fiance came up with!  And IF we can get it (I’m sure our friend will agree), it’ll be the one that goes on our wall!

I think engagement shoots must be a pretty American thing, I’ve not heard of many British brides doing them. Then again, I have ZERO engaged friends or family! We didn’t have one, the pictures would have make a lovely keep-sake, but I wouldn’t have known what to actually DO with them? Plus the Mr is not a big fan of PDA, so any dips or snogs would have been out of the question!
