    @Lily_of_the_valley:  My fiance and I have talked about it off and on.  At first we were like, “Yes, of course we’re going to do them!”

    Now we’ve been engaged for 4 months and are well into our wedding planning.  At this point we basically feel it’s a waste of our time and money.  We probably wouldn’t use them for anything now, so we can’t justify spending an afternoon (and several hundred dollars) on them.

    No, we ran out of time, but I kind of wish we would have.

    We did. My main reason for wanting to do it was because we don’t have many pictures of us together so I thought it was a great chance to take some pictures to fill up some frames 🙂

    Our photographer includes e-pics in all her packages, so yes

    Yes, but only because I won a shoot. Otherwise, we weren’t going to.

    @lauraashley09:  Same. Our wedding photographer has it included in her packages. It was a great chance to get to know her and work with her before the wedding. If it wasn’t included, I doubt we would have gotten them.

    We will be doing them to get comfortable with our photographer.

    Yes, it was included in our photography package and we have been together for 9 1/2 years and did not have any professional photos together–other than prom pics 🙂

    we will. we won our shoot, but i would have gotten them. most people say whats the point and that they wouldnt use them, but im pretty sure ill use more of them than wedding photos. I’ll probably only have one of us on the wedding day hanging up, but i can have a lot more use of good pictures of us in casual clothes.

    I actually hate having my picture taken so I wasnt planning on doing it at all, not to mention I think its a waste of time and money I can put towards other things.  However, my Fiance is a freaking ham in front of the camera, and his photographer friend offered to take pics of us for our Save the Dates, for almost nothing.  I am not sure I would consider those engagement pics but my Fiance does.  lol  I think if you have the budget for it, go for it, but I personally dont see the point when you will have a ton of wedding pics.

    I originally wanted to do them, but Fiance thought it was a waste of money. We’re going to have SO many pictures from the wedding. . . and there was a secret photographer during our actual engagement. . . so we decided that was enough for us. =)

    Yes, they were part of our package and it helped us get a feel for how they work.

    Yep, we got a friend to do a shoot for us late last year, and we will be having the professional engagement shoot 2 months before the wedding.
