    @barbie86: i agree with you on that. i want to know who’s going to be there and there style.

    our  Photographer is a women and i really love her style and work i would not like not knowing who’s taking the pictures the day of. also DJs some companies have a few DJs and you get who you get. i don’t agree with that. you should know be assigned one person for the job.

    I just could not stand photographer A’s attitude.  If he feels you’re “not ideal for him” then what if that comes across in his work if he takes your pictures?

    I would go with B since you like them 2nd best.

    So you’ve determined that he’s arrogant because of how he wants to schedule his bookings that that you seem like an ideal couple to him?  That makes absolutely no sense to me at all.  Find a photographer whose work you love the most, and if you get along with them then hire them. I don’t understand the process of wasting so many people’s time to make a decision, or jumping to a conclusion about someone’s personality just because they are in demand and think you are an ideal client??

    i would go with photographer 1. if you really love the pictures and can afford it, it would be worth it. if you meet him and his arrogance shines through, and your not comfortable with it, don’t go with him.

    You’re insulted by being an ideal client? Haha! That’s a compliment. I often tell couples they are my ideal dream couple if they fit my target profile to a t! Not taking bookings more than a year out isnt arrogant. It’s smart business. It also means he knows he’ll book his season. That means he’s in demand. That is a great sign as well. I reject as many couples as I accept. I’m imagining he does too. Careful selection of couples tells you a photographer runs a smart business. If he doesn’t think you’ll work well I’m thinking he would turn you away.

    @barbie86:  There is no comparison.  Hands down photographer A.  Apparently I need to move to the UK and charge $3000 to shoot weddings though.  Geez.  Even my stuff from shooting as an assistant is better than the work for photographers B $ C.

    @barbie86:  I only book weddings less than 18 months away. Maybe not the same as photographer A, but I do this because I just don’t want to think about work that far in advance. A friend of mine had a LONG (really long) engagement and changed her mind like 4 times what she wanted for photos. So…yeah. Better safe than sorry. I also don’t hold dates, but if you emailed me about a date, then someone else did a week later, I’d tell them someone else is interested. I’d also contact you and let you know someone is trying to snag your date. That’s just how it works in this area. I’ve never had a client “steal” a date though.

    Photographer B has music on his site which drives me batty.

    AND (to make things harder) a couple UK photographers I love:

    Good luck!
