I’ve never heard of this. Is he on deployment for a long time? It still seems odd, you’d think if she wanted a picture for an announcement she’d just use one they already have.

Haha, I don’t know why but that just reminded me of the episode of Friends where Monica and Chandler get their engagement pictures taken, and Chandler can’t take a good picture, so Joey fills in. Maybe he just wasn’t photogenic enough. 😉

Haha, did she say it was engagement pictures?  In some areas it’s common to do more of a bridal portrait thing…

Wouldn’t that just be… a personal photoshoot? I’m sorry, but I think that’s really weird too. :p

Very peculiar. Maybe he was behind the camera and it was shots of when he proposed as in actual engagement photos and not engagement session?

I’ve seen this in our newspapers. I think it’s becoming less of a trend, but I’ve thought of it as a, how do I say it, “society” thing. It may be a Southern thing too.

It is possible, that her photographer offered an E-session with her package, and so maybe since her fiance could not be there she decided to go on her own… either that or she wanted engagement pics, but her fiance could not be there, so she just did them herself!

I would say this is not a trend or the norm though, as engagement photos are usually of the couple together!!
