This is one of the most common questions I get asked! My best advice is AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! Many times engaged couples will set their date, book their venue, then the next thing that should be checked off the list is booking a wedding photographer. This is the typical order because these are the vendors that can only book one wedding per day. Unlike some other vendors like florists, hair and make up artists, catering, etc. that have a team of people who can make it possible to book more than one event per day. Many times photographers book 12-18 months in advance so it is important to contact them early so someone else does not book them before you do!
