I know how you feel!  We had to book our photographer almost a year out to make sure we had him.  You are getting married a day after my birthday!

Oh, I just realized it’s a year and a half from your date and they are booked!  Wow!

I have a stupid question… why do you think that 6-11-11 is such a popular date? is there something i don’t know about?

Popular being it is a wedding month.. On a side note, photography should not be overlooked. It should be a priority even before looking out venues or dresses or even starting out to plan a wedding. 🙂

Oh my gosh!  That’s our date and I just booked a photog but I cannot beleive that 3 are already booked for that day now I feel behind.  All I’ve got done is dress, location, and photog.  I guess I better get on it!

how strange, i’ve just not heard about this date yet (of course i’ve only spoken with two 2011 brides)…  but yes i think photography is the most important aspect of any day no matter the amount of money you spend, i mean 1000 is still a lot to spend on one day

I’ll definately keep you updated.  The only reason I have my location is because we’re getting married at a winery (currently wo a reception center but groundbreaking is in March, tell me thats not stressful lol) and both the ceremony and reception will be there.  Hopefully reception hall won’t be so bad.  I mean we’re still 18 months out. . .

I was only engaged for 10 months, but the photographer was the first thing I got nailed down after the date (the venue determined the date, so that was all one shot.)  It is frustrating, but I can assure you that YOU WILL find someone who you click with and love their work. 

Also-Im a huge fan of B&W and sepia photographs too, but dont totally discount color.  We had a rgeat assortment of all of these, but photographers work MAGIC with photoshop.  some of my final photos included the same shot in color and B&W, some were color but were artistically faded and look vintage, others were perfect in sepia.  I wouldn’t worry too much about that aspect.  If you tell the photog that you’re into those types, they can make it happen.

Are you willing to pay for a photographer to travel to shoot your wedding?  We did that, and paid a decent amount for it, but it was totally worth it.  My brothers and some friends biggest regrets are using a friendor or settling for someone less experienced.
