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.

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.
