For those who are curious, here is how the engagement photo convo went with Fiance:

me – Hey, should we get engagement pictures taken?

him – Why?

me – Because people do that.

him – Why?

me – Never mind.

him – If you want.

Moral of the story – I’m scheduling a sesh in a week or so after the house stuff is settled.  And it’ll be cheap, if not free – Craigslist might be a tough crowd, but there are plenty of photogs looking to build their portfolios on there!
