When is the right time to choose your wedding photographer?

When is the right time to choose your wedding photographer?

If you got engaged recently, let me be among the first to congratulate you! You and all your friends and families must be thrilled – such exciting times!

With the proposal still fresh in your mind and with the new bling on your finger to match, you may be keen to get started with the wedding planning.

In fact, if you’re reading this, you are obviously already thinking about your wedding photography.

Perhaps you are wondering ‘When is the right time to choose your wedding photographer’? Perhaps you’re eager to discover which photographers are available on the date you have in mind.

Take things slowly

But my advice, as a seasoned wedding photographer, would be to not feel the pressure to rush things! I’d suggest that you both take the time now to enjoy this special time together.

It may be tempting to go head first into the wedding planning (I certainly wanted to do that when planning my own wedding last year), but my advice would be to look forward to all the good times ahead, together with your husband or wife to be. They’ll be plenty of them.

Don’t presume that you need rush all the wedding planning and get everything arranged straight away.

The realities of wedding planning

Wedding planning, while exciting, can become a little hectic.

There are so many decisions to be made about what you want, where you want the wedding to be, and how many people you will be inviting to come along. Plus a million and one other things. It can all become a bit of a whirlwind!

Enjoy sharing the story of the proposal with your family and friends. Enjoy recalling that special moment ove and over again.

It was special wasn’t it? And worth savouring? So, don’t be too keen to move onto the next stage. Keep the moment alive in your mind and remind yourself of the happiness and excitement you felt.

And when you are ready to start planning your big day, I’d highly recommend that you make choosing your wedding photographer one of your top priorities.

While I’m encouraging you not to rush into the planning, don’t dilly dally either!

Wedding photographers, like venues, often get booked out well in advance.
