Engagement Photo's at Prosperity Mansion- Frederick and Carroll counties premiere wedding / reception venue.
Should you take engagement photos?
Can you afford to have them taken professionally? Some couples are on an extremely tight budget and simply cannot find the extra money to do it. In that case I recommend that you find the most beautiful public place or location that means something to you and start there. Have some of your friends show up with cell phones and cameras and shoot away. You are bound to get some pictures that you really love and can use.
If you can afford professional photos do it. There are man advantages such as you get to see what types of photos your photographer can take. How creative are they ? Do you have a good rapport with them? Better find out now then on your wedding day , right?
See how you think you look. Then if you want to make personal changes you have some time. Maybe you want to change your hair color or length or the dreaded weigh loss.
