How far in Advance should we book your services?
First of all, it never hurts to reach out to your dream photographer for an inquiry! If your wedding falls during a peak season (typically spring and summer), it's advisable to book your photographer at least 12 months in advance. This is especially important if you're planning a weekend wedding when photographers are likely to have multiple inquiries.For weddings held during the off-peak season or on weekdays, you may have more flexibility. Booking 9 to 12 months in advance is still a good rule of thumb, but you might find availability closer to your wedding date.If you are flexible with your wedding date and are open to booking on weekdays or during the off-season, you may have more flexibility in securing a photographer. Booking 6 to 12 months in advance is generally a good timeframe in such cases.
Can we provide a list of specific shots we want?
Absolutely! I welcome and encourage your input to ensure that your wedding album reflects your vision and preferences.
