My BF and I aren’t engaged yet, I’m a part of the waiting list. The ring is bought though!!
My question is, when is it too soon to take engagment photos? We plan to have a long engagement 2-3 years but I would love to have engagement photos to send out to family and friends just to let them know we’re engaged. I know my Pop-pop, my mother and my bf mom would love photos of us.
Is it tasteless to send out engagement annocements when we know our actual marriage won’t be for a few years?
I’m so on the fence on when we should actually take the photos.

I think it’s too soon if you take pictures before you are engaged but anytime after that seems appropriate even if the wedding is still a few years off. I would just make sure that they are actual announcements instead of save the dates unless you know for sure you will be inviting everyone (2-3 years from now) that recieves one.

I would say after you’re offically engaged.

I probably should have been a bit more clear. We wouldn’t get engagment photos until he popped the question. It was just something I was curious about, something that I day dream about when I have a spare time.

- Wedding: December 2014 - 13th ~ TN
Beautyandthebusiness: We are getting married in Dec and not having our until Aug. I know some people do them sooner, but we finally just decided to get them done. I am not worried about STDs or anything like that, so I will not need them back months ahead of time.

I understand now. FI and I got engaged in Dec. and took our engagement pictures in April. We are getting married June of next year. So we have enough time to do save the dates if we decide to do them.
