Aww.  I’m sure you can find some other nice place to have engagement pictures done.

And him saying he hates the place doesn’t mean that he hated all of it- I’m sure he has great memories of it too, like the part where he met you.

Aw what a party pooper.  That would be such a great place!  I’m with you on this, but then again, we did our e-pics at the University we met at – need I say for obvious reasons similar to the ones you mentioned above for yourselves?  Your photos will great where ever you pick though, so don’t worry about it too much!

I loved my college experience as well, and the buildings are really beautiful and interesting.  When I brought it up to the hubs that iw anted to take our e pics there, he honestly didn’t see why, but didn’t really care.  Now I can say that I have some really great pics from my school and the surrounding area to cherish forever. 

I think that your Fiance owes you a better explanation besides “he hates that place.” Maybe show him pics of other epics at colleges to show him why its a perfect place for you guys, or even have him pick a place. No reason you can’t have more than 1 location, we went to about 4 different places to get pics done

I understand where he’s coming from–I despised school from the second grade on, and I certainly wouldn’t want photos of me in a school setting! I’m sure you’ll find a compromise or location that’s equally awesome. πŸ™‚

@TinyTina: sorry your Fiance is being a fuddy duddy!  I don’t think it’s unreasonable for you to ask him for suggestions–if he’s going to tell you where you CAN’T go, then he better give some suggestions about where you CAN do the pics.

Suggestions: a local park, the city, out in a field, by the water, near your house… You’re not getting married til June ’12 so if I were you I’d wait for the weather to get better and then you’ll have lots of great options.

+1 for using the word “fuddy duddy” – not sure I ever heard that one before!  What college?

@TinyTina: I went to school in Troy, NY, so I thought it was somewhere near Albany (as stated in your wedding location)

Perhaps he feels like college was a long time ago and he’s grown past that (I’m saying this though I don’t know when you graduated). I graduated college 7 years ago and I don’t think that I would be excited to take photos there, even though I absolutely loved my school.

When you reach these roadblocks in planning, it always helps me to feel better by asking them what they think. Have you asked him where he thought would be a good place to shoot your e-pics? Maybe he will realize that shooting back at the campus is a good idea after all πŸ™‚

@TinyTina:  RPI.  I was in Schenectady a few weeks ago at the GE plant.  Ate at a great little italian place (forget name).
