    • Wedding: September 2013

    @zarethacosta:  I made a mistake in my vote…i got engaged in Nov. 2011 and we booked our photographer in Jan 2012. That is a little early, but I am glad we did because his prices went up within the next few months! SO we got an awesome price

    • Wedding: June 2014

    I couldn’t answer the poll since my wedding is still in the future.  I got engaged in December 2012, and started casually looking for a photographer in July 2013, but really started in earnest in September 2013.

    I got engaged in November 2012 and started seriously researching photographers in May of this year.  We booked our photographer in June.  We have an almost 2-year engagement so I had a ton of flexibility, and every photographer we contacted had our date available because it was over a year out 🙂

    I got engaged at the end of January, i started at the beginning of Febuary. 

    I’m a wedding photographer and I have a ton of friends in the business. I wanted 1 of my friends in particular to shoot, and I know how quickly we get booked, so I called her up and booked her for next June

    I selected July because I thought you were asking when we got engaged, but the name of the poll is when did you get married…. which my answer is “i haven’t yet but it’ll be march”….. very confusing though!

    • Wedding: October 2011 - Bed & Breakfast

    We got engaged in October for a wedding the following October. Since I knew that September and October were the busiest months for wedding in our state, I made booking a photographer a high priority item, and we were booked by December (before all of those newly engaged people could come in and steal our favorite).

    • Wedding: June 2014 - Ontario, Canada ♥ EDD- April 2016

    We got engaged January 30, 2012 and booked our photographer that summer (August 2012). We booked ours super early, but we had decided on a pretty popular date (June 14, 2014) and they were our dream photographers. We had wanted them for about a year before we got engaged. We didn’t book anything else two years in advance aha, but they were the one thing we really needed to have (:

    I just got engaged a few weeks ago..and I’ve already started looking for a photographer! We’re getting married during a fairly popular time where we live, so I want to book someone early.

    • Wedding: April 2013

    We got engaged in October and we started looking for a photographer in December. Since we were having an off season wedding (April) it wasn’t hard to find someone available.

    • Wedding: April 2013

    We were engaged Dec 2011. Finding a photographer was the hardest!!! We booked one April 2012 but then we changed the date we were getting married on twice and we lost the photographer because she was booked on the date we settled on. So we had to book another photographer 2 months before but my stupid wedding planner refused to pay him so we ended up getting a crappy photographer 6 days before our wedding. It was a nightmare!
