Why Engagement Pictures? Are Engagement Pictures Necessary?

(Before & After Your Wedding)

Engagement Season just happened with the Holidays and Valentine’s Day and now it’s Engagement SESSION season in full swing.

One of the reasons why we include an Engagement Session in all of our wedding packages is because it’s an opportunity to meet up in person, get comfortable around each other, and obviously, take some BOMB pictures!

Being engaged is such a fun season of life and you are gonna want to have pictures of that special time of your life. But we also want you to make the most out of your pictures!

So here are 3 things you can do with the pictures from your Engagement Session:

1. Use them on Save the Dates, Invitations & Thank You cards.

Your guests will love seeing your photo on the save the dates and invitations you sent them. They will most likely put it up on the refrigerator and naturally look at it all the time and be reminded of your wedding and beautiful relationships.

Chances are you will be sending out a lot of Thank You cards for wedding showers, bridal showers, and even after the wedding to all of your guests. You can use your engagement pictures for your thank you cards for events that happen before the wedding and even after!

2. Wedding website.

Your engagement pictures are the perfect and most on-brand pictures you will have for your wedding and it will make your wedding website even more cute and romantic!

Here you can share plenty of your pictures that maybe you don’t have the chance to post on social media.

They will also look so good if you have a website page where you share your story of how you met, got together, and are now engaged!!

3. Prints to decorate stations at your wedding reception.

Here us out on this! Your wedding is about your love and your relationship and commitment to each other. People will be all about you and you should accept and celebrate that. Guests that have not been able to take a look at your engagement photos will love seeing them as decoration at your reception. You can print, frame, and display them at your wedding whether on an easel, on your gifts and cards table, next to your guestbook, etc.

And that’s it! These are the main 3 ways we have seen our couples use their engagement pictures and we love seeing it!

Let us know what you have used your engagement pictures in or what your plans are, we would love to hear your ideas on Instagram at @betts_photography .

Much love,


Happy Couples
