Engagement photographs ....







American's are all for engagement pictures, but here England people are a little less into it. Why I am not entirely sure. Perhaps that they believe it is an unnecessary additional cost to the wedding and one that they could do without. 


Personally, I am all for it. There is nothing more that I enjoy than dressing up in pretty clothes, having my make up and hair done to prance around like a deranged fairy whilst someone snaps up pictures of me. It is just incredibly fun; for me anyway ! For Eddy it's another story. I am trying desperately to convince him that it would be fabulous and would be fun to have such great pictures, but I still have a long way to go.


How do you feel about engagement photographs and please especially those that don't live in the States pretty please do leave comments I would love to hear your thoughts, I really really would.

I'm all for engagement pictures, but I am from the States and, you're right, it is way more common out there! But I went and married a Brit, so I know what it's like to have someone be a little hesitant about them! I would really encourage your fiance to do them though! They totally loosened my {now} husband up and made him feel so much more comfortable in front of the camera, which made for much better photographs on our wedding day!

Yes please- get them done! :) In Asian culture, it's quite normal to have Pre-Wedding photos done -- essentially the same thing... :)

DO IT! It wasn't really something that people were doing when we got married (10 years ago) and now I'm sad that we don't have any engagement pictures. We also didn't do any maternity pictures when I was pregnant. SO SAD!

You absolutely should go for it! It is so special to have professional photos done throughout your life. I'm going to try to talk my hubby into a photo shoot while we are in London.

I think so. I am trying to save though so I think I will get my friend to do it and then I can pay her a little. I am sure she would appreciate it and she is so good with her camera ! x
