    We did ours in winter but indoors at a conservatory filled with all kinds of gorgeous greenery.  It took weather totally out of the equation, and the photos came out great!  We also got a few outdoor pics in our winter coats with snow.  So perhaps you may want to start by thinking about what locations you want for your photos, and then you can determine what season is best (or whether season doesn’t matter).  Good luck and have fun!

    @SummerOfLove:  They both have pros and cons! I think go with what your gut tells you – they are both beautiful seasons.

    @SummerOfLove:  Ours were done in July, and I do not recommend it! The photographer had to photoshop FI’s shirt in the favorite pictures because he was sweating so bad, my hair was sweaty, we had to keep wiping sweat off our faces in between pictures. Our only saving grace was that it was pretty windy, so we had air blowing on us.

    I would try for fall when the leaves are changing.  Your wedding pictures will be done in the summer, this will give you something different.

    And it’s miserable being outdoors taking pictures when it’s hot.

    We finally did ours just last month. It was perfect. It wasn’t hot, it wasn’t rainy, the trees were starting to get some color on them. They turned out really well.

    Fall! Pretty colors. My husband and I got ours done in the fall right when the leaves were turning colors. Beautiful!

    Also, you have more wardrobe options as you don’t have to worry about getting hot. And more hair options if your hair is easily affected by humidity.

    We did ours over Labor Day weekend. It was in the 70s and perfect outside. I got to wear cute dresses that I would have never been able to wear in the fall due to colder weather. I love them and so glad we chose that time!

    We did fall… but we are also doing another shoot in winter outside and another one inside that’s Christmasy. Another in Springs as the snow is melting down by the train tracks and probably another few in summer. But we are both photographers and work for a photography company.
