We are planning on having a July 2014 wedding. I was wondering when do you think I should start thinking about getting engagement pictures? I know some people who got them done RIGHT after getting engaged, and some who wait until a few months until the wedding. I don’t necessarily plan on using them for the STD, but if I have them done before that then I will use one. I kind of wanted to put it off until later, maybe fall of this year, so about 10 months before. Do you think that is too late, too early, or will work fine?

I got engaged in April 2012 and we had our photos done that July. We had them in plenty of time to look and choose a few we liked for a STD choice. We just ordered and sent out our Save-The-Date Cards in January so I would say maybe a year before, especially if you’re not using them for anything particular, but you will have time to think at least Have fun!!

@shrubfish09: I think it depends on whether or not you want the photographs for Save-the-Date cards. If you are going to do them for STD’s I would try and get the engagement photographs taken 9-12 months ahead. And if not, I think 6-8 months isn’t unreasonable in case you want to use them for a guestbook or something reception related. 🙂
