If you’re wondering when to take engagement photos, you’ve come to the right place! Many brides know they want engagement photographs, but aren’t quite sure when to take engagement photos in their wedding planning timeline. It can be a very busy time for the bride and groom, and it feels like taking engagement photographs is something that can be put on the back burner time and time again, but don’t! And here’s why.
Remember when he/she got down on one knee? The butterflies and nervous energy you felt before the question was even asked? Remember the excitement to finally give them a huge hug and kiss after nervously answering with a “YES!”? It’s so important to preserve that!
Being newly engaged is so exciting! I’m not saying you have to have your photographs taken the next day, but consider having your engagement photographs taken within the first 6 months of being engaged. It will also allow you to use the images in engagement announcements, save the dates, and at engagement parties to display.
The time of year you wish to be photographed is completely up to you. Some couples love the colors of fall, the flowers of spring, the idea of snow, or even the hot sticky summer. Your personal style will depict the best time of year for your photographs.
Whatever you choose to do, remember to have fun, be flirty, treat yourself to hair and makeup, and most of all, remember what you are celebrating.
Hope this helps!
