Book your photographer as soon as you find them and you have a wedding date confirmed. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to disappoint someone because they wanted to wait for one reason or another. Shop around for your photographer ASAP. Check their Social Media feeds, their testimonials, and their reviews. Find someone who fits your style, budget, and personality.
I book up as early as a year and a half out and I book on a first come first served basis. Once that date is booked, it’s rare that it opens up again.
