Coming from a wedding/engagement photographer in New York City it might sound biased, but: everyone should take engagement photos. They're a great opportunity to get fresh new pics with your partner AND get chummy with your wedding photographer. If you need help with any engagement photo outfits or ideas, check out this blog post.

When you choose your wedding/engagement photographer, you should pick a date for your photos. If you're following a wedding planning timeline, this will be 8-12 months pre-wedding. The sooner you can get engagement photos taken, the better -- you don't want to be stressed out in full wedding planning mode during the shoot.
