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.

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 ;))

My Parent's Portrait Session at Historical Site

As most photographers know well, when you announce to the world that you are a professional photographer and that you are open for business, family and friends come flocking. They want you to take pictures of EVERYTHING. This can be a great learning experience but I personally just love to take pictures of my family. As I have been making my rounds to each family of my extended family, I had a moment of shock when I realized that I haven’t had a chance to give my parents a session. Clearly, this needed to be addressed as soon as possible. Thinking back, the last time they probably had professional pictures taken of them was on their wedding day. They were certainly due for some professional pictures taken by their daughter no less.

We talked over how I need to see Incredibles 2 (I know, I know, it’s on my to do list) and the little details that they are going to have for their wedding as we wandered through the small downtown square.
