Is it ever too early to book a wedding photographer?

With planning a wedding, soooo many things come up and you often feel that you have to plan so many things so early in advance. But are you planning too early? These are all my professional opinions and what I have discovered with my own clients. In my professional opinion, somethings ARE too early to plan and your photographer is one of them. Why? You may ask. Well, typically you would book your photographer and venue a year in advance, these are the two vendors that do need the most lead time when you book. Two to three months after you book your photographer you would have your engagement session, which will then give your photographer time to edit your photos and for you to send out “Save the Dates” and the rest falls into place. If you were to book your photographer two years in advance, you would have to wait much longer until your engagement session and may even forget about it as the time rolls around.

Hustle n Hearth Styled Shoot - My full review and experience

Hi there sweet friends! I have been BEYOND excited to share these pictures and my experience at a Hustle n Hearth styled shoot! So let’s start from the beginning. I was so lucky enough to be invited personally to this mini workshop and styled shoot that I couldn’t contain my excitement as I left early Saturday morning. It was cold but not too bad in comparison to what my hometown was facing at the moment. The venue was down in Shelbyville, TN which is a little over an hour away from me so I made the trek and dare I say it was SOOOOOO worth it!

Puppy Engagement Session

The first weekend in December I meet up with Natalia and Chris to be able to catch the last warm rays of fall before we headed into winter. That is so weird to say for me being a born and raised Wisconsinite, but I can’t complain about this amazing weather! Not to mention how we couldn’t have picked a better day for this session. This couple is SERIOUSLY couple goals….they even had matching jackets. How cute is that!??! Not to mention that their dog Ghost was so cute and played along for the pictures. Being only six months old, he was a natural! I couldn’t say enough good things about Natalia and Chris and how welcome they made me feel in this new city! I can’t wait to meet more couples to capture their love together. (Couples can be with out without puppies in tow ;))

It really came full circle to be able to capture her wedding and be a part of their special day.

Burlington Fall Wedding

I had the most wonderful opportunity to be the second photographer along side Brittney Mangold Photography. (Go check her out if you are in the Burlington area!) We got to capture the beautiful wedding of Lauren and Vaughn. These love birds have actually been in each other’s lives since second grade. There was a picture they had displayed of the two of them in the same first communion class. They had no idea that each other was in that same class! Small world, but the stars aligned and brought them together when they got to high school.
