@Solstice:  Rather than cancel them, rethink them.  Consider a hairstyle that suits your current length, maybe have it styled at a salon to give it that extra edge.  Choose a color that flatters your skin or spring for a spray tan.  And why not think about the possibility of having your pictures shot someplace else?  Think of your style, maybe ask your photographer for some location suggestions.  It’s not that you can’t have pics and have great pics, you just need to envision them in a different way.

Is there somewhere inside that you could take pictures, like an indoor garden, art museum, museum of history, etc,? Maybe somewhere that is decorated for Xmas?

Perhaps you could wear a cute winter-y dress with boots and tights (check out Boden, they have lots of cute corduroy dresses that would be warm. Or maybe get a nicer winter jacket?

No way, don’t cancel them!

I would just find a stunning indoor venue. Or, assuming the weather is compliant where you are in early November- google Fall engagement pics, or pinterest them. There are sooo many unique ideas that would never have crossed your mind until you see them!

I cancelled mine because I ran out of time and I also wanted fall photos. I am postponing until next fall and instead I am doing newlywed photos — which defeats the purpose I KNOW but I don’t care. I never was going to use my engagement photos for anything (like STDs or whatever) I just want fun fall photos with my beau. I think PP have good ideas.

Even real tans on caucasian people rarely photograph well in this photographer’s opinion. I wouldn’t cancel your engagement photos.

Can you find a new photographer for engagement shots?  Or a friend to take pictures for you?

I love photographing pale skin! 😀 Im with Continuum on the tan skin.. Do the shoot IMO. I also love cute mittens and a scarf in photos, I think bundling up will make some cute photos, you will rock it no matter what you do.

 

The FH and I are buying farm land too! I feel ya. 😀 I cant wait to grow my field of sunflowers!

Can you do e-pics with someone else? That is what we did and it worked out great.

I think if you cancel them, you’ll regret it.

Get them done!

 

There are plenty of cute winter outfits out there!

Betrayed?  The sounds a bit harsh.  I’m sure the photographer wasn’t trying to betray you- especially if they turned a wedding down to do yours.  I don’t make any excuses for people’s poor communication but the 12th isn’t that far off.  What about the potential of doing some of the photos indoors?

What if you did them outside on your farm still, but just get a cute colourful coat – hat scarf and mitts…

 

I had friends who did that and had a camp fire type of thing with hot cocoa and marshmallows, wrap yourselves in a blanket… You could even have a cute little outdoor xmas tree decorated in the background. 

It might not be what you envisioned… but I’m sure you can find a way to make it completely beautiful. 

I was supposed to be doing mine tomorrow, but my photographer heard that I was having doubts and cancelled us altogether, so now we have to wait til next year, find a new photographer, and most likely change our location for our e-pics because most are going to charge and arm and leg to go where we want to go.  Basically, I’m just saying things change, but you can always make it work – and work well!!
