I don’t think there’s anything wrong with hiring different photographers, but I’m really glad we used the same for both. The e-pics gave her a chance to get to know us, and gave us an opportunity to get comfortable around her.  We got married in a different state from where we lived, so it was a little bit difficult coordinating, but we just did them on a weekend when we were in town to finalize other wedding details.

I’m having a cousin, who is an amazing photographer, or a friend do our epics so I can try to negotiate a TTD or boudiour shoot with our photographers.

Our e-pics are going to be done much before our wedding (because of a long engagement) and I want to have them done for an engagement party sometime after we actually get engaged.

I don’t see a problem with it, but as a heads up your wedding photographer might, especially if you have your e pics posted at the reception.  I’ve heard of this before because if the e-pics aren’t the wedding day photographer’s style, they might not want people associating them with it.  I would just double check, but again, personally I think it is a good idea for your situation.

My e-session was included in my photographer’s package.  It’s a great way for you to get a sense of how your photographer interacts with you — and vice versa.  Make sure you check with your wedding day photographer that it’s okay to book a different photographer for your e-pics.  My photographer specified that she (and her second shooter) are to be the only pro photogs at my wedding.  I don’t think it specified anything about e-pics, but this wasn’t an issue since they were included in the package.  Just something to think about.

We are using the same photog for our engagements and wedding, but if you’re worried about interaction, have you thought about getting coffee or drinks? We did that with our photographer anyway as kind of an informal meeting to go over her portfolio, and I really enjoyed it!
