Engagement picture locations...?
Okay ladies....I am looking for places to take engagement pictures. I live in the south suburbs (Orland Park area). I love every picture I've seen taken in Chicago, however, I am not a city girl so I'm looking for other alternatives. I have a few crazy thoughts in my head I figured I'd throw out there and get opinions. I am a huge fan of Taylor Swift and thought of printing pictures of my fiance and myself and hanging them from the trees..a spin off on her "mine" video. He and I are very big bears fans so maybe we can wear jerseys and finding a football field to take pictures on. I just don't know how creative a photographer can get with that. Anything outdoors is right up our alley.
And....when is the proper time to send out save the date cards? I'm getting married in June next year. I plan on using the engagement pictures for my save the dates. My fiance lives out of town so time is not on my side. I have to coordinate him and my photographer which will not be easy. My fear is taking pictures on a hot summer day...let's be honest, only Kim Kardashian can look good when she is sweating. Do I take them in the fall? Is that too late to send save the dates? I have quite a few out of town guests and I want to make sure they get enough notice.
When? Where? HELP!
