Our wedding is Sept 27, 2014. I have contacted my photographer to take our engagement photos mid Sept this year. Is this too early? We both LOVE fall, I would do it a little later to get more fall colors but we already took a photo shoot last year that had tons of fall color and I wanted something a little more summerish, with flowers and sunset. Even though winter sessions are gorgeous, i dont want a winter e-session. If we end up doing another fall session, i would be OK with that.
I would have also liked to have lost a little more weight before the e-session and mid sept is only 1 month away! I have lost 35 since my heaviest and right now im at a plateau!
So what do you think, 1 year in advance too early? Does it really matter when they are done, as long as we are enagaged? Have any of you Sept 2014 brides taken your enagagement photos yet or when do you plan to?
I can’t decide!! Help! 🙂
Here are a few photos from our “just for fun” shoot last fall. We are going with a different photographer. (Now looking at these again makes me want another fall shoot…. )

We’re aiming for September/October too. We figure the fall colors would be nice and we wouldn’t be all sweaty from the excessive heat in NC. We want to send out STD’s by January, so we should have enough time to get photos back from the engagement session to include on the STD.

we did ours this summer! i would probably have rather done a fall shoot, but we’re getting married in our hometown and we don’t live there anymore, so since we were visiting this summer we decided to get them done then.
i think this september would be a perfect time!

We’re probably going to have a fall shoot done as well. I also love fall. We have a friend who likes to take photos so I bet we’ll just ask him. We have a lot of nature trails and state parks in our area so I know we’ll get some great photos of us with gorgeous fall backdrops.

We’re doing ours this Friday. Ideally we wanted to wait until September when it would be a bit cooler outside but our photographer has a very busy schedule!

We got engaged in March 2013 and did ours in April. We are getting married in September 2014. The theme of our wedding is very shabby chic, as we are getting married in a barn.

We are getting married September 6th, 2014, and we are getting engagement pictures August 30th. I don’t think it’s too early at all! I’d rather do it now than rush it next summer, when we’ll be running around like headless chickens. 🙂

We just scheduled our engagement photos for mid-October! The photographer said the colors would be really pretty that time of year for the locations we’re shooting in. I’m really excited!

My FH and I have been together since my freshman year of high school. The theme of our engagement shoot was HIGHSCHOOL SWEETHEARTS so we went to our hs where we met to take our photos. However, we chose to wait three years for me to finish law school after he proposed to me so now I feel like we need new photos for our save the dates! Here are a couple of pics from our original shoot:
