I may be misunderstanding your question but you narrow down to a small pool of possible DJs and photographers you’d like to have, then contact them and ask them if they are available on your date. I’m doing all my planning online.

I’m not exactly sure what you’re asking, but we picked the venue first and then I emailed our top choices for photographer & videographer to see if they had our date available.

I think if you are doing your research and contacting people now you have plenty of time and shouldnt worry – you will find a great photographer and great DJ that will be available on your date!! I canceled my first photographer and didnt book a new one until 2.5 months before our wedding!! And then 1 month before I added a 2nd photographer and it was no big deal!

I guess it depends what your priority is – the date or the venue or the photographer, etc.  Go for that first.  For us, we chose our venue first (who had the date we wanted, although we were flexible based on what was available).  That gave us our official date.  Everything else from then on has been based on the other vendors’ availability for our date.  If you really want a certain date – find a venue and photographer and such available on that day.  If you are set on a specific venue, book that first based on the venue’s availability.  Same goes for a photographer or any other vendor you really want.

WIth less than a year to go, I would actually start immediately finding your venue, photographer, and DJ. Since you want to get married in part of peak wedding season, I would suggest doing as much research online as possible, and accepting the possibility of having to make some decisions when you are not physically together with your fiance. This goes especially for any vendors that may be highly sought after (an especially beautiful or affordable venus, or a fabulous photographer for example). I booked at 13 months out and there were still a ton of dates I couldn’t get because they were already booked!
