Our wedding is Sept 27, 2014. I have contacted my photographer to take our engagement photos mid Sept this year. Is this too early? We both LOVE fall, I would do it a little later to get more fall colors but we already took a photo shoot last year that had tons of fall color and I wanted something a little more summerish, with flowers and sunset. Even though winter sessions are gorgeous, i dont want a winter e-session. If we end up doing another fall session, i would be OK with that.
I would have also liked to have lost a little more weight before the e-session and mid sept is only 1 month away! I have lost 35 since my heaviest and right now im at a plateau!
So what do you think, 1 year in advance too early? Does it really matter when they are done, as long as we are enagaged?
I can’t decide!! Help! 🙂
Here are a few photos from our “just for fun” shoot last fall. We are going with a different photographer. (Now looking at these again makes me want another fall shoot…. )

I think it’s totally up to you! We are getting married in just over a week – our engagement was 8 months. We did our engagement session in early June. Our photos turned out great and they look recent (same hair styles, etc) so I am very happy with a 2 month difference.

Ours was 13 months out. I wanted them done ASAP because I was SO excited lol.

isn’t the engagement photo shoot supposed to reflect your engagement? have them now or whenever you are ready for them.

Our original plan was late October for our June wedding (because I wanted fall pictures for the contrast of our spring/summer wedding pictures). Life had other plans though, and due to a relocation we just had our e-session a few weeks ago.
Ideally I’d prefer pictures in two different seasons, just for variety’s sake, but if you love fall, then take them this fall!

We did ours a year out too. We’re using them for the Save the Dates, so we wanted them done early.

I think it is more important that you get the pictures you want with the backdrop that you want (fall) than when you do them. I say go for it, it will be nice to have them back if yuo decide to do Save the Dates

We had just for fun pics taken last July and had our engagement pics taken this July and they were even at the SAME location! Summers really the only season I like and want to take pics in so if you like fall I’d say go for it! Either way your pics will be different enough from your previous ones.
