    Bridal portraits, while lovely, aren’t the norm in my region. Boudoir photos aren’t my style. But we very much enjoyed our engagement photo session!

    I only did engagement photos pre wedding. Darling Husband and I actually did “bridal portraits” together after the wedding (which was amazing!!! We weren’t rushed and really enjoyed them more than we did if we’d done them right after the ceremony).

    Engagement pics came with my package and I’ll take bridals before the ceremony.

    We did engegement photos only. Bridals aren’t really a thing here, and Mr. LK would be none too pleased if I was in my naughties in front of a stranger.

    Engagement and boudoir, but I only have boudoir to show for it as all 2 hours of our engagement photos were taken on a corrupted SD card.

    I would like to do engagement photos but right now they are not within our budget. However, we have a meeting with our photog April 7 so we will see what she can do. Im not a huge fan of the boudoir photos and Im sure Fiance wouldnt approve of them either. Wouldnt want to really do bridal pics either but thats just me.

    We did engagement photos. Bridals are normal down here, but I didn’t see the point. I want boudoirs, but would do them as an anniversary gift or something. I found a photographer that is *amazing* with light, so they’d be as much for me as for Darling Husband. Hahaha.

    @Over the Moon:  Nightmare.  The photographers are SO apologetic about it but it makes me very nervous for the wedding, you know?

    @KristenGotMarried:  Dude that’s awful! Are you getting a do-over??

    We did engagement photos and I’m toying around with the idea of boudoir. No bridals… I think they are lovely, but we’re already doing a million other different things!

    @coyote:  She offered but to be honest, engagements weren’t very important to us.  Instead we added on an additional 2 hours to our reception 🙂

    The engagement session was part of the photographer’s wedding package. We ended up with a few decent pictures. I wasn’t really interested in doing a boudoir photos.

    @KristenGotMarried:  Sorry to hear about the engagement session, that just sucks.
