I took us 1 month to get our photos. If you are using them in the wedding, you may want them to be rather current… A few months old, but if you are thinking about a save the date or a website, it might be good to have some sooner.

The plan right now is to get ours done after May 4th, which is when we graduate and we will be engaged not quite two months by then (and a lovely friend is doing ours; I’m calling the place where we want to get our pictures done tomorrow…a historical village – I’m so excited!). We got a Groupon for Vistaprints that expires in June, so we’ll get them done by then and out by July. It’ll double also as a save the date, too. We’re planning a March 2013 wedding.

We are getting married Jan 2013 and just got our engagement pictures done last week. We will be using them for Save The Dates so this is why we decided on getting them now 😀 and because it’s taking us a month to get them back. Hope this helps!

We are getting married in june and we are not getting ours done till May 6th. We got engaged in september and I wasnt a fan of having fall/winter engagment photos. I wanted spring pictures and since we didnt use them for STD it didnt matter.

I’m glad you posted this! I was wondering the same thing!! Fiance and I are getting married next fall/winter and I wanted to hold off until after I have my breast reduction this summer and everything settles in before having e-pics done. I always thought you were supposed to have e-pics done like right away after getting engaged. From what I’ve read it doesn’t really seem to matter. Fiance and I have decided to wait until this Fall to get them done as we want the e-pics to be an ‘audition’ for our weding photographer. This will give us time to decide on a date and pick out a photographer…

my wedding is in september. we’re having ours done towards the end of june and we’ll be using the pictures for our guestbook. we may have done it a little sooner, but we’re having them done at our favorite vacation spot during our vacation. my fiance can’t get away very easily, so the less leave he has to request off, the better.

I got engaged last month, our wedding won’t be till June 2013, and doing our photos mid October (when fall colors are blooming!).  So then when can include them in our Save-The-Date Cards.
