I am getting married beginning of July and I have already met with my photographer twice, but she did engagement pictures and bridal pictures. Contact your photographer if you feel uncomfortable, but I don’t think I would stress out by not hearing from them yet.

@ticatica:  I think its less stressful to just call them then to wait and hope that they are going to call you soon. If you feel you guys should be touching base by now just give them a call or shoot them an email. Not once did I have my photographer say “whoa…you called me way to early to work out details…’ ha! They appreciate that you’re on top of things.

With my photographer, I have kept in pretty close contact with her for the past few months through e-mail (and a few calls and texts). We also had a session of engagement pictures last weekend (we were a bit belated on these but they were included with the package so we figured we’d go ahead and do them) and I will be doing bridal pictures around the end of this month (once my dress is completely fitted and back from alterations). I’d say give your photographer a call or e-mail and ask when they would like to do a meeting with you. With mine, we will do an in person meeting a few weeks out from the wedding to discuss poses that we want/don’t want and other things. She’s also going to be sending us a form to fill out through e-mail so she can have the information she needs on hand for the big day.

If your package includes engagement pictures then your photographer should contact you several weeks, if not a month, before to arrange an engagement session. Engagement shots are meant to get the both of you comfortable in front of the camera, as well as flag to the photographer any issues that may arise on your wedding day (i.e. if you or your fiance tends to look in one direction versus another).

My photographer told me she would call me a week before the wedding to speak about what photos would be important to get.

@ticatica:  =) Yeah, there’s really not much you can do right now.  Plus it’s May.  Not sure if it’s the same in UK – but this is a pretty big month (along with June) for photographers.  Weddings, graduations, communions.

@ticatica:  The only list my photographer asked for is which shots I definitely wanted to make sure she didn’t miss.  A lot of the photographs will be obvious, like the cake and the venue.  

If I were you, I’d call or email to ask the question.  Even with it being the busy season, they should be able to take a few minutes to answer it for you.

Go ahead and email or call him.  I always meet with my couples for engagement photos well before the wedding day, and during the week or two before the wedding to go over all the details.  However, if a bride is feeling like she needs to connect, I encourage them to shoot me an email or give me a call.  I’d much rather alleviate her concerns right away, then have her wonder about whats going on.  It will only take a minute, and it will set your mind at ease.  People do it all the time…don’t even hesitate to contact him to touch base and find out what’s ‘next’ in the process.  🙂

When we are a month out from an event we touch base with our clients and send over two questionnaire emails that help us plan out the day.  We retouch on some of the ways we approach things to make sure everyone’s expectations are on the same page, and we also request that an itinerary be sent our way so we have time to review it to make sure everything makes sense from the photography standpoint.  Every photographer is different in how they approach things, but you shouldn’t fear reaching out to them.
