We are taking ours in late June for our Nov wedding. We just basically wanted to wait till the weather was nice and wanted to shed some winter weight, LOL.

We had ours 9 months before our wedding since we wanted to have a photo for our save-the-date. If you aren’t planning to do a photo save-the-date, I’d say any time from now until a couple months before the wedding, is pretty usual.

I was wondering the same thing as well. I figure we will just take them around the same time as we are doing the Save-The-Date Cards and attach the pics to it. Pretty much the same thing as @Heatherloveskenny: said 🙂

We took ours in March…just found a time that worked in our schedule and our photographers schedule and would also provide possbily good weather.

Haha we did our e-pics 6 weeks before the wedding.  We had been trying since 6 months prior to do them, but we’re not getting married locally, so we had to coordinate with vacations.  My photographer was busy during the holidays, a blizzard kept Fiance from getting up there, etc.  When we finally managed to make it work, it was the most beautiful sunny day ever, with a fresh dusting of sparkly snow and warm enough out that we could take our pics outside and not wear coats.  So I’m really thankful none of the other times worked!  Obviously we didn’t do a photo STD, but we’re using our engagement pics for our table numbers, so there’s still time to do something cute, even if you get them done really late.

We got engaged in January, we’re doing engagment pictures in October when the leaves change, and we’re getting married in May of the following year.  You can take engagement pics at any point throughout your engagement, there’s no strict rule 🙂

we are only engaged for 7 months, so we had ours about 5.5 months before the wedding. 

You can do it whenever you want, anytime between 12-6 months before the wedding is probably perfect. Some people use a picture from it to send out save-the-dates 6 months before the wedding.

We were supposed to have ours today but we were rained out – Mid-May for a late October wedding. We’ll probably get them done within the next two weeks. All I need them for is to make our guestbook. 🙂

Hi Hive!!! This is my first post (exciting). I’ve been engaged for almost 2 months now. I  haven’t the slightest clue about engagement photos. Is this something that most couples do?

We got engaged in December of 2009. We’re getting married in June 2012. I’m hoping to get my engagement pictures done in October.
