To put simply, the difference between engagement and pre wedding photos are the outfits. Engagement photos have couples in clothes that aren't their wedding attire, usually casual wear. While pre wedding photos focus on the wedding attire - dress, tux and everything in between.

After hearing this couples often ask a follow up question, "So which should I get? Engagement or pre wedding photos?" And our answer is always "Well, it is up to you." Many couples like the idea of having just casual clothes for a more relaxed feel and often use the pictures for invitations so they can surprise guests with their wedding attire.

On the other hand, there are many couples who prefer pre wedding photos so they can take more photos in their wedding attire and create more everlasting memories in the outfits. Then there is a handful that is more than to do both - because who doesn't like options? The only downside to doing both is that it can be a little pricey.

In terms of price, generally speaking, engagement photography is somewhat less expensive than pre-wedding photography. This is because pre-wedding photography sessions tend to be longer, often require hair and makeup (possibly with an attendant), and, depending on the photographer, a photographer's assistant to help carry and arrange the bride's dress and veil (can't miss that classic flowing fabric shot!).
