- Wedding: October 2013
We are more than 2 years away from our wedding date, and the photographer we feel in love with is already booked!
I thought, after we booked our venue, we wouldn’t need to do any more planning for at least a year! I made a spreadsheet of photographers in the area and Fiance and I were looking through them, just to get an idea of who we like and what they cost, and we found one we really loved. Since we loved her pictures so much and she was (barely) within budget, I decided to email her just to establish contact. It turns out she is already booked for our wedding date, more than 2 years from now!!!
I contacted a few other vendors we were looking at, musicians and such, and most said we could book them now and a few said they won’t book this early. I guess maybe this photographer is just very in-demand. We are having an off-season wedding, and she’s twice the cost of the average photographer in the area, so I was kinda surprised. I thought, by looking this early, we could have our pick of any vendor we want. I guess there are brides in my area who are even more on-top-of-things than I am!
This is my advice- when you know you like a photographer, or DJ, or videographer, or any vendor- book them as soon as possible!!!
