I’m not getting married until August 4th 2012, but was thinking of getting our engagement photos done this August. Is that too early? FI mentioned that he thought a year in advance was a little crazy…but I was thinking I wanted the photo backdrop to be the same season as our wedding. What do you all think?

you are engaged so really there is no timeframe – i wasn’t going to do them and ended up doing them like a month before my wedding haha – but i say go ahead and do it while you are still newly engaged 🙂

I dont see why it would matter your engaged. there engagement pics lol.. Then if you get them done early you can use them as std or table numbers etc.

- Wedding: September 2011 - Mackinaw Valley Vineyard; Bloomington Center for the Performing Arts
We got ours done last September and I didn’t think it was too early, especially given we were running out of warm weather to take them in last year and would have had to wait until now or later for warm weather, which is a busy time for our photographer and us. I liked getting them out of the way personally.

Engagement photos are meant to from when you get engaged, regardless of when you’re wedding is.

We JUST got the ones that were taken a couple weeks ago (our photog friend kept forgetting to send ’em, lol). But we plan on getting more done this summer when one of our friends starts filming his remake of NotLD and some other stuff. Pretty sure he’ll let us, since he’s into weird, fun stuff, lol.
Besides, I also want some more fun photos that we didn’t get in the last shoot. If all else fails, we’ll go to where our photog lives and drag him and his camera out to some place for photos, lol. Or kidnap him from a set…. whichever works best 😉

I dont think it really matters

I thought engagement photos were supposed to be taken when you are newly engaged. I felt weird for waiting almost 4 months after we got engaged to take them! I don’t think it matters though. You are engaged so it wouldn’t be wrong or weird to take them now.

@OrchidLove: we’ve been engaged almost 8 years. Sooooo, yeah. We waited till a year out from the wedding, otherwise it would’ve been forgotten.
It’s really whenever you want to take them. A friend who got married last year waited until just a couple months before the wedding (or was it a month or less?).

@OrchidLove: Really? I hope not! We’ve been engaged for 9 months already and aren’t getting them done til June. Hahaha, ohhhh well.

@Mrs.H2B: I totally wanted them done at the same time of year for the same reason!!
Our wedding is May 26, 2012, and we are having ours taken May 26, 2011 (next thursday!!!) I can’t wait – it’ll be so exciting to celebrate the one year mark with the photos. You should see if you can have them taken August 4th!
