When to hire a wedding photographer

To all the engaged couples out there; we can not put enough emphasis on how important it is for you to hire your photographer ASAP. This is your wedding, people… do you really want to risk settling for someone you don’t like or don’t know, because you waited until the last minute? People often think they can wait until a month or 2 before their wedding, but by then, it may be next to impossible to find someone who is available. Some photographers schedule a year or more in advance, but most ask for at least 3-6 months. That’s not saying that they never have availability sooner, but as a rule of thumb, you’re better off if you don’t procrastinate. 

At DLPS, we ask for a minimum of 3 months, but we prefer at least 5-6. This gives us a chance to meet with you a couple of times and make sure we have everything set. It also gives you time to pay for your photography in payments, rather than having to come up with the whole amount at once. Go ahead and send us an email inquiry. We will set up a consultation time to meet, either in person if you’re local, or by Skype if you’re not, and talk about all things wedding. We will ask you a ton of questions, you can ask us just as many. We want to hear all about your wedding and what you have planned. We also want to talk to you about our services and what we can do for you to make sure that your wedding is documented accurately and beautifully. 

We would love to talk to you about your wedding photography needs, so please contact us and schedule a consultation.
