I don’t think it really matters. We did ours on Valentines Day and got married in June. I would have LOVED to do fall ones, but DH was deployed. It’s nice to have them available a few months before the wedding so yhou can use them!

We did ours a little over a year in advance…It just worked out that way because we were planning our wedding from a different state, and we were down in Florida at the time (where we got married) and took them.  We had a long time to design and print our sign in book, and my mom had pictures printed for my bridal shower.  

The earlier the better.  Don’t be worried about doing them ahead of time!

I’ve heard that the e-pics should be taken no later than 6-8 months before the wedding. However, I am getting married in September and we just took our e-pics today. It depends on your preference and who your photographer is. If you can get a good turn around time, I would say you could hold out. But if this photographer is overworked, it may take you a while to even get the photos back!

I took mine in June and my wedding is in October, I am taking my bridal portraits in September. I think you can really take them when ever you want. Have fun with it!
