I’m an anxiously awaiting bride who set a date 26 months out from the day we got engaged. I got engaged on April 29. We have already had our engagemet party (invites used photos from the actual proposal). I was wondering if October would be too soon to have engagement photos done since the wedding isn’t until June 2014. I think it makes sense to have them done now while we are still somewhat newly engaged and I want to have them, but on the other hand our STD’s won’t go out until sometime next summer so if we used the photos, they would be about 10 months old. What do you think? Too soon? Doesn’t matter when I do them? I’d love to hear your advice, especially if you are in the same boat I am!

We had a longer engagement, too. Honestly, I think you can do engagement photos anytime, especially if you want them taken during a specific season. 🙂

Same here. We have an 18 month engagement. Take advantage of the time you have to take pictures during your favorite season. We rushed to take ours before winter hit to capture green on the trees but didn’t go so well in late October. We didn’t have a chance to retake them in spring.
Moral of the story: Better early than late

I vote take them sooner vs later.
