We’ve been engaged since February 5th of 2012. Our wedding is May 11th of next year (yes I know it’s Mother’s Day), but we haven’t took engagement photos yet and I feel like we’re late on them. Is it too late if we did them next month or do I forget about taking them all together? Thanks for your response everyone! 🙂

Uh, we took ours two weeks before the wedding. They came with our photog package and were initially going to just skip them but figured it would be good to get used to the photographer, having our pictures taken, etc.
PS – Welcome to the Bee!!

sorry…ahh…taken! (Sorry, I’m was an english major and this is like nails on a chalkboard to me)
You have more than a year and a couple of months to take these. You are no where near being behind on taking them. Most people use them for their save the dates which go out about 6 months before the wedding. You have more than enough time, I would just have them done before November of this year.

two year engagement? whatever girlfriend, take them when you want. I had a 6 month engagement, and I had the engagement photos done in Feb, married in May.

You can really take them whenever you want. We already did one session (my dad is a photographer so it was free) a while back around when we first got engaged. But we just one a free session, so we are doing more next month (only 6 months before the wedding). The purpose is just to get some nice photos of you two together/of the ring. You can also use them at the wedding for things like a photo guest book.

Our engagement photos are this April and we’re getting married next April. We’ve been engaged since last March by the way.
@tobemrstaddesse: No worries about it being on Mother’s day! My Grandmother and Grandfather were married on May 11th (it was also Mother’s day when they got married) and they were married happily for over 50 years until he passed away three years ago. I think its a good date!

@tobemrstaddesse: We got engagement photos done on our one month wedding anniversary. Sometimes life is out of order!

It’s up to you. We decided not to take them because of the added cost.

You have plenty of time to take them! If I were you, I would do it this summer. I feel that is the perfect time for you guys 🙂

Thank you all who replied. You ladies all reassure me that I can take them still, that’s why I love this site though. 🙂
