  • Wedding: September 2008

If your wedding is in November, I would do it a few months before in the warmer months before the summer is over unless you are really into the fall foliage and want to capture that in pictures..This also depends on where you want to have your pictures.

We haven’t had our done yet. We won’t be able to do them for another month or so (our wedding is in May), but my recommendation would be to make sure you take them early enough so that you can use the pictures at the wedding (maybe as part of the guest book). Also think about whether you want to use any of the pictures in your save-the-dates or invites. if so, you’ll want to make sure you have time to get the pics before you have to send them out. Good luck!

A few months before the wedding is usually a good time to do it, although it’s really up to you.  Check with your photographer to see if they have a preferred timeframe.  Photographers often like to do engagement sessions during their off-season, when things aren’t as busy and their weekends aren’t filled with weddings to shoot.  Also, if you plan on using pictures from your e-session at your wedding, then give yourself enough time to review and order the pictures after the session.

We did ours about 10 months before.  One, for the season, two because I knew we would use them for our std’s, so I wanted to make sure I had them.  I don’t think it really matters – just when you want to do them!

  • Wedding: May 2008

I got engaged in November 2006 and we are getting married May 2008.   We did our e-photos in September mostly due to the weather and we did ours at the ballpark so we had to catch the last few games!

We’re getting married in August and we did ours in October. I just got the Save the Date magnets back (we included a photo) and we’re going to send them out after the new year.
