I feel your pain. I am delaying my engagement photos until late spring so I could shake some weight off LOL. In my honest opinion, I didn’t want to look back at my photos and cringe at how I looked. I love my body and that it works the way it does but the truth is I’m not comfortable with my weight at this point and I want to look back at my photos and be proud of my progress. 

I would wait but not too long since STD in Dec/Jan for a February wedding is too close.

We’re delaying until Spring for weather reasons, but I’m down 25-30 pounds already and want to lose more, so that’s an added bonus. Maybe wait a little, but don’t put too much pressure on yourself. I’m using the start of life with FI as a motivator to lose weight, but it’s more important that I’m happy and healthy.

ETA: Don’t wait a whole year! That would be way too late for STDS!

I think the engagement photos on an outdoor rink is a super cute idea, and is meaningful and special.
I don’t know you, but if this is the weight your FI proposed to you, I’m sure you look absolutely beautiful. If you did want to feel extra beautiful, you might buy a new outfit or get your hair/makeup done for the engagement photos.  An indoor rink just won’t be the same!

I didn’t have engagement pics for this very reason.  I wasn’t happy with my weight (I’m still not) at the time.  My wedding is in 9 months so i’m hoping I can get my shi!t together by then!!

I’m not using our engagement photos on our save-the-dates (but for other reasons, we still don’t have them yet but even if we did I wouldn’t use them, they’ll be on the website though), my wedding is next January but we aren’t getting engagement photos until the spring/summer so I won’t have engagement and wedding photos all from one season (winter) :-)!!!
