Hi – we’ve set our wedding date for June but would like to take engagement pictures beforehand so that we can use them for the guestbook/reception decor.
How long before the wedding should we take the engagement pictures?
Also, we’re in nyc – what are good places to go (aside from central park) in the winter/spring when it is so cold out??

I think when you want to take the e-pics is up to you. We took ours 6 months before our big day so we could catch the fall foliage…of course it’s been so darn warm in NYC that the leaves were still green when we went…oh well at least it was warm!
As far as places to take the pictures…I guess indoors is pretty limited for the City, but you always have your museums and coffeeshops. I’m not sure what some of your favorite hangout spots are in the city, but Grand Central Terminal could be a good option..
I’ll let you know if I think of anymore…

We had ours done in Chelsea Markets, because it just refused to stop raining and we couldn’t reschedule any more :-). It’s a really cool space–and our photographer kept raving about the light–with lots of interesting backgrounds.

how about south street seaport? Also, there are SO MANY different options in Central Park. How about that iconic place where you can see the buildings rising above the trees? Called the Gapstow Bridge I think…here’s a very wintry picture of it, but in all seasons it’s great:

It’s actually my dream to try and do an outdoor, heavy fat snow engagement session. Only problem is that I’m in Virginia, my Photographer is in South Carolina.. and uh… we don’t get snow like that! lol. We may head out to Chicago in March and then take a day up to Milwaukee, where I have a photog friend. If we could ice skate on a real pond in heavy snow I’d die right then and there!
