    I didn’t physically meet with any but I talked to 2 on the phone. I’m big on email, and I emailed back and forth with quite a few (maybe 5ish). But mostly I let photog’s photos speak for themselves.

    From online portfolios and price I narrowed it down to three. I met with all three in person and booked one. I think it makes a lot of sense to get a feel for who you gel with in person, particularly since your photographer spends a lot of time with you throughout the day.

    @QueenBecca037: Yeah, I recently had a potential client/bride just assume I would drive 130 miles to go to HER HOUSE and meet with her. I was a little insulted, frankly. Not all photographers are starving artists desperate to book anyone who shows the slightest bit of interest and if you treat me that way, you aren’t going to get a good response. I’ll be polite of course, but your date may suddenly be no longer available haha.
