Photography is really important to Fiance, and I really love having great photos of us together!
This summer I had an internship in Switzerland, so Fiance came to see me and we took engagement photos in Paris! It was amazing! The only thing though was we had to wake up SUPER early and I couldn’t afford getting my hair and makeup done there…so I wasn’t completely satisfied with how I looked in the photos…typical self judgment stuff lol
We then booked our wedding photographer, who added a complimentary engagment photo session. This time we decided we wanted snow pictures (i live in the midwest), because it would be a different feel. This time I got my hair professionally done, but it looks really weird in the photos. all in all, not a big deal, pictures turned out to my liking (MINUS THE HAIR!! lol)
So NOW…my Fiance lives in Vegas (right now we do long distance, im moving there in June after wedding), and I am going out to visit him in 2 weeks. I was looking online, and there is a photographer who is traveling from the east coast, and offering $100 engagment sessions on one day while I am there. I think I would LOVE to have Vegas photos…plus its sentimental because I am moving there, and there are so many cool spots to photograph!
Would it be absolutely silly to spend another $100 and get MORE engagement photos??? Do I need a reality check? We aren’t ‘hurting’ for money, but we need to keep saving for our June wedding, but $100 isn’t a bad price!!

Why do they need to be engagement photos? You could just call it a normal couples photoshoot – nothing wrong with that!

I absolutely love photos so I may not be the best person to ask but if money really isn’t an issue I am the type that would totally go for it. We got a session included with our wedding photographer but FI’s uncle is a photographer as well so we asked him to do a winter shoot wiht us in the snow bc our other one was in the fall. I absolutely love having tons of pics and they’re great for our photo display table at the wedding too 🙂

Haaah! I would do the shoot. I love photos and years down the road you will love them even if its your third session. $100 is a great price, do you like the quality of the photographer?

@sheepandbear: I like the quality of their engagment and boudoir shoots more than the wedding photos I’ve looked at. They are based out of Virginia, so I am interested to see how they would shoot on the Las Vegas strip.
I’m thinking night/dusk photos would be awesome with all the lights! they shoot until 10 pm. it would definitely be different than Paris and Winter photos! lol

Do what you like! You want more photos, get more photos. If you have a guy who can stomach three engagement sessions consider yourself lucky.

I’d say do it. Have fun! But perhaps let your wedding photographer know before hand. Just so they don’t think you got another shoot done because you thought theirs wasn’t good enough!

We did! My FH is from New Orleans, when we were there visiting we took Our first set. Then back in Tampa, where we live, we took more. IMO, you’re only engaged once, enjoy it. And I’ve used both sets of pics on our website, STD, and invitation. So a great investment to me.
