This is just my opinion, but I’d say sooner rathr than later after getting engaged. I think they’re usually used for newspaper announcements (which I think are usually done soon after engagement) and STDs.

We were engaged for 11 months (6 months away from the wedding) when we had ours done.  I think engagement pics are optional, so there’s no “set” time to get them taken.

i think it depends what you want to use them for. if you wanted to use them for std’s and announcements, then you’d want to get them done asap. if you want them for a guestbook or to display at the wedding, or for thank you cards, you could wait a little bit.

we were engaged for about 7 months (5 till the wedding) when we had ours done. We waited cause we wanted our photographer to do them and he lived in NC and we were not going out there together till then.

I think it’s personal preference.  I wanted to take mine the day after I got engaged 😉 but we are going to wait til closer to the wedding (maybe 6 months before) – mostly because the gal I’m having do the pictures is about to have a baby.  

I’m not doing STD’s or using the pictures in the invites, so – I don’t have a timeline for them.  Also, I didn’t want to do them TOO close to the wedding, since we’ll have more pics of ourselves at that time.

I don’t think it matters.  I know I’d like to have pretty leaves in the background, so we’re waiting until the fall.  You’re fine as long as you get them when you’re engaged in my opinion.

We got engaged last Dec and still haven’t gotten them done. It’s really hard to plan a perfect day because it rains so randomly here. Plus I cn’at decide on an outfit!
