    Keep! Here's one of my faves. We're keeping a lot of them secret for Christmas gifts.

    We will definitely be doing engagement pics! We are bad at taking pictures of ourselves so these may be it for us lol. Plus we want to take some with his daughter too.

    We've already done them, however we may actually need to take a few new pics since.. my fh had dreads and has since cut them off since the engagement pics, so we will have to retake some pics, even if it's just a few for our save the dates.

    Keep... We haven't had ours yet and our wedding is in June.. ooops.

    BUT it comes included with our photographer and it's a great way to get familiar with each other... so even if we do them a week before the wedding, we're still doing them.

    Keep! Although ours was a short session because the photographer had pneumonia, they turned out great!

    Keep!! I don't like having my picture taken, but my partner and I decided it was important, since we don't have many pictures of us. It turned out to be a LOT of fun!! So glad we did it!

    My FMIL is quite gifted with photography and wanted to take our engagement photos in the worst way. Her photos turned out wonderfully and we saved the added expense.

    We seem to be one the few couples that will be skipping this. We live overseas and it's just not done here. Actually, it's slowly seeping in, bit it's still widely unknown. Also, my FH wouldn't really be done for it. He prefers to take pictures than to be in them.

    Keeping, my FH wanted to skip them but I eventually explained to him the importance.

    Our photography package includes them. I think it's a great way to get to know how your photographer's style, get comfortable together, and also, learn how to be photographed if you haven't had professional photos before (*ahem* me and my fiance)...

    Also I will be using these photos on our wedding website, too!

    We're taking them purely because they're included in our photography package, otherwise we wouldn't take them.

    Keeping but only because they are included in our photography package. Although its nice to have engagement pics, I plan on spending my whole life with Timmy. Realistically these pics will be used for save the dates, some fb/insta posts, and then hide away in an album somewhere. The wedding photos are what I'm most concerned about!!!

    Keeping! It's a nice keepsake, and a great way to get know the photographers and their style and for them to get to know us!

    Keeping! Our photographer and videographer is a very good friend of mine, so I believe we’ll just be doing a few pictures (4-5) over the holidays, just to have a few! The fiancé hates pictures, so the less suffering for him, the better lol.
