Just 1 🙂 went to a bridal expo where I got to talk with multiple photographers, then we picked the one we liked best/best deal.

Holy goodness. I looked through tons of portfolios, but it really only came down to 3 that I was interested in.

Just one. They photographed my FI’s uncle’s wedding last summer and they did an amazing job. I loved their work from that wedding and the rest of their portfolio. We met them at a Starbucks on a Sunday morning and we absolutely loved their personalities too.

I contacted a few but only met with 1 (Kate McElwee).  She was way more than we every thought we would pay but we were both so in love with her work and she is such a doll that we went for it.  We booked her last summer and glad we did since she books up quickly.  

I narrowed it down because there were a lot of popular photographers here in Boston that I really hated their style so it was pretty easy for me.  If they didn’t have enough photos on their website for me to make a decision I skipped them because I figured they weren’t worth it.

I narrowed down all of my vendors (hair/makeup etc) to about 5 or so before I even contacted them so I didn’t have so many replies to deal with.  A lot of them will want to talk on the phone and I hate talking on the phone.lol

Met with 3 but send information to about 15 I think. Our planning was about 6-7 months out and on Memorial Day weekend so we were a little worried about the ones we originally wanted being booked (which happened but couldn’t be happier with our photographer!).

Good luck!
