Lol ok calm down! if you think you will feel more comfortable in your own skin by winter having lost some weight, then wait. You could a snowfall engagement session. If your photographer knows what they are doing, the photos can be dreamy, like this one http://amandahein.com/amandaheinblog/?p=1659


I’m a photographer, and I wished a couple wanted to do a snowy engagement session, I’m dying to do one. If you are self conscious about your body, it might show in your photos if you do them now. Self confidence is apparent in photos, so do it when you feel more comfortable with your body.

I was wondering the same thing!  Congratulations, by the way!  We got engaged and are getting married in the same months!  We will be getting married on July 5th.  I am wanting to do our engagement pictures this month because Mr. King works out of town but he will be home for Thanksgiving.  I want to display an engagement picture or two at the wedding and wondered if it would be silly for the engagement pictures to be done in a different season than the wedding (especially if being displayed).

Breathe and relax!!! Now, CONGRATS!!!! We actually got engaged around the same time. My photographer was booked within the same week of us getting engaged. We took summer pics at the beginning of September in 70 degree weather and now we are taking Fall pics in 50 degree weather. I think it’s personal perference and since you aren’t using them as STD’s then it’s totally up to you!

Congrats on your engagement. I think e-pics in either season would be pretty.

We did our engagement photos about 2 months before the wedding. (I am not a fan of picture STD’s so we were in no rush to take the photos)

I wanted the weather to be warm so that I could wear a dress and shoes.

My suggestion is to have the photo shoot whenever you feel you will look/feel your best.

There are always great photo opportunities regardless of the season.  I thought most of my photos would take place by the water.  However, it was so sunny out the day of my photos that the water shots were not working out and we ended up taking most of the photos in a park.  The photos came out great (the trees and flowers were amazing). 

Your photographer should be able to maximize any venue you select so again pick a time when you feel that you will be at your best……

@justpeachy123:  I’d try for early spring and it depends on the weather in your area. Snow pictures are pretty but you wouldn’t last more than 15 min in the cold and you really need a solid 1 – 2 hrs for engagement photos!
