@Miss Party Cat: We got engaged over a year ago and just did our photos last month. Honestly, you can do them whenever you want. So if you want them sooner than later go for it! I don’t think you can do it too early.

ETA: Just keep in mind to wear something you won’t dislike 5 years from now….

We took our last october, mainly because we had an offer we couldnt refuse. Take them whenever you want! If I were you, I would take them sooner than later and then when your day gets closer you can take another set ๐Ÿ˜€

We got engaged at the end of 2009. We’ll be married in 2013. I’m probably going to do engagement pictures in the fall of 2012.

I think you have to ask yourself what the “purpose” of engagement pictures are.

If they are just to capture the “spirit” of the engagement, then sure, go ahead and take them right now.

But if (like we are doing,) you are using them as a time to “get to know” your photographer, or to have them “go with” your wedding pictures, you probably don’t want to take them 5 years in advance, cuz your photographer could change/move, and you’ll probably even look different! In that case I would recommend about a year before the wedding.
