My SO and I had “just because” pictures taken in February! I am glad we did it and I think you guys should too!

We did this too, just because there aren’t a lot of pictures of us together. We probably won’t get engagement pictures though, we’ll see

ETA:engagement pictures are a new trend anyway

@MrsHalpert:  First off, congratulations on your shared weight loss! 300 lbs is quite an accomplishment!! I think photos are a great way to celebrate & reward yourselves for such hard work! 

I don’t think it’s odd at all. Before we were engaged we got photos done every few christmases for postcards & such, and families have pictures done sometimes just because. Even if your not married it sounds like it’s coming and you are already a little family, so I say ignore your friends & go for it!

@MrsHalpert:  Nah, not weird.  I did some of these with a boyfriend I’d been with for 3+ years at the time.  We were a social unit, and we lived together, it just seemed right.  We ended up getting 2 sets taken, but we ultimately parted ways.

Congrats to you and your honey for losing all of those lbs!

No way, I think it’s great!  You have every right and reason to want to document your new looks, and what you worked so hard for!  Go for it!

That is a great idea! You should have pictures you really like of the two of you for years to come! I wish I had done that. The only thing I have is senior prom pictures from almost 3 years ago

I think it’s a great idea and I wish we had done it! When we did a photo session it wasn’t so much an engagement session as us just wanting pictures together. Must of our pictures before that were selfies… in bars.

I plan on scheduling a photography session every year now so that we can keep our pictures updated!

My sister and her husband are big professional-photo-sessions-are-great enthusiasts. They have had several sessions of them together for various reasons, and now they’re getting a bunch of pictures of their baby done at different times in her life as well! I say if it works for you, do it. They certainly have a well-decorated house with lots of great pictures of them, while Darling Husband and I just have some weird photos on the fridge of us drunk and wearing dresses (both of us) at running club events … so maybe my sister and BIL are onto something …

My Boyfriend or Best Friend (at the time) and I took some pictures about 2 years ago, which was just about 2 1/2 years before we got engaged!

I love them! They are some of my favorite pictures ever, and we will be using them in our guest book at our wedding haha! I wouldn’t take them back for anything, and on the plus side, the photographer we used for those photos 2 years ago is now our wedding photographer! So not only do we know her already, but we’ve kept in touch since and when I booked her for our wedding it was awesome, we were already comfortable with her!

We did get asked if they were engagement photos and I just said nope! Like you guys, we had already spoken of marriage, and had been dating for 3 1/2 years at the time. I say go for it! It could be like a trial run of engagement pictures, most people dont get that!

Not weird. It’s nice to have nice pictures of you two, you know? My Maid/Matron of Honor did this with her Fiance before they got engaged because they wanted nice pictures.

We did just because photo last summer at it was awesome! We had our cute puppy and my now Maid/Matron of Honor took pics of us at FI’s farm. Everyone thought they were engagement pics but we said we just wanted some nice pics of us. I’d definitely say do it, how fun!
