We booked ours a year and a half away…they are an awesome couple and have gotten really big since we have booked them. So we are glad we did it so early!

I always like this question.  I have had some brides book me over a year in advance and some a week before there wedding.  Really it all depends on the time of year you are getting married, May thru September don’t wait to long those are the months we book up fast.  Nov thru April is a little slower and easier to book sometime.

I would start looking as soon as you can. Not to put pressure, but if you find a photographer you love, you’ll want to try to snap him/her up.

But don’t despair—you’re not behind yet. Those of us who booked more than a year in advance had more than a year to plan! So you’re fine. But I’d get started to try to find your favorite. 🙂

We had ours picked out 18 months before but we could only book them at the 12 month mark which we did to the day. =)

We booked ours 2 weeks ago, less than 3 months after we got engaged, adn more than 8 months before our wedding.  Never to early to book anything IMO.

We booked our photographer about 2 months after we were engaged. I say if you find one you love, book them. Its one less thing you have to worry about.
