So my fiance and I are really unsure of doing engagement photos. Are they really necesary? Expecially if we already have a ton of pics of ourselves. We have professional pics laying around that still need frames. I also understand that it is a great way to get to know your photographer, we really want to save money! One more possible reason we might skip these is that my fiance has messed up front teeth, and he is getting them fixed for the wedding but we don't have a set date for when they will be finished. As his teeth are now he doesn't fully smile in pics, so i don't think the engagement shots will be as genuine as our wedding pics.
So this is my plea to all the brides out there, help me decide what to do? Are they really that important?
