I’m not so sure I’d pick one where he is holding a bottle of beer. Do you have other choices?

It is cute but not so sure it’s the best for Thank you cards. I wouldn’t stress though I am sure you will find the perfect one

I agree that the bottle of beer is a bit less than desireable for a thank you card haha!  Have you tried emailing your photographer to see if they can send you a photo to use for thank you cards, even if it’s only one formal posed portrait?  For timelines, my family has always said within 6 months to send thank yous, but I have also heard 1 year… so I wouldn’t stress too much yet!  Wait for the good pictures!!

I think one of the two of you facing the camera would be better for the thank you card.

I have to agree with one of other posters… Not sure I would pick a pic with the groom holding a beer bottle.  I think you have quite a while after a wedding to mail out thank you cards…

I’d wait for your pro pics.  And I agree with the PP about the beer bottle.  Also, the pic is kinda dark in general… I’m sure you can find something better for your cards.  🙂

You should try contacting your photographer and let them know you’re trying to find a good photo for your thank you cards – ask if they can send you a few photos to choose from, before they send them all!

@ddubzz:I agree; it’s too dark and the beer.  I would do as @cecullaton suggests and see if your photog can send you a pick for your thank yous.

My advice would be to relax! It’s not too late for thank you cards. The second one is a bit too formal for me.

Contact your photographer or ask friends and family if  they have anything else.

I would look for something where the two of you are a bit closer- looking at each other perhaps? smiling?

something like this:
