I contacted 1, the girl who shot my brother’s wedding. She is amazing, and is a great friend of my sister-in-law, so we were able to completely customize our photography package!

I initially contacted about 20 (I live in a small area) and probably narrowed that down to 3 that fit what we were looking for and our budget (and were available on our wedding date, which falls on a Sunday during a holiday weekend).  I decided on the first one I actually had a meeting with.  We just clicked.

OP Did you choose a photographer?  Who is the lucky company?

@MeiFrancis: All I ask is that you respond. My biggest pet peeve as a business owner/wedding photographer is getting emails that say:

“Hi,

I’m getting married on THISDATE. Are you available? How much will it be?

Thanks!”

 

And then I take the time to respond and don’t even get a “Thanks for your reply.” Or “we already found someone” or “you’re too expensive”. At least let me know you got my email and it didn’t go in spam! </end rant> I emailed ~10. Maybe 15. Talked with 2-3 on the phone and met with one.

Also, if you are getting married Aug 31st, that’s like the only weekend in August I haven’t gotten a single inquiry. Strange how some weekends are crazy popular in some areas and not in others. For the weekend after 4th of July, I had like 15 inquiries.
