    You will get completely honest opinions and reviews from previous customers. Looking at reviews will show you how well your potential photographer did or did not do with their customer satisfaction. Photographers who work well with their customers to provide quality, creative and unique photos, will have incredible reviews. Those photographers who just were not up to the task will have a trail of customers who just were not satisfied with the services provided and decided to leave some critical feedback. Paying attention to reviews is a great way to ensure that your photographer has a good track record and is up to the task of providing such a precious service, such as preserving your wedding memories.


  • Booking.

    Procrastinating anything usually does not end well for anyone. When it comes to planning your wedding photography, research is going to be your greatest tool, and starting your research as soon as possible is a great way to ensure that you have enough time to choose your photographer and make sure that they are available for booking. About a year before your wedding date is a great time to start. It is better to have more than enough time than run out and hire a mediocre photographer, so book ahead to ensure that you save your date.


  • Meeting.

    No matter how many great things you hear about a person, you still do not know who they really are until you meet them. Being able to meet someone, such as your wedding photographer, is a great way to form your own opinion and connection, and decide whether they work well with your personality. You and your photographer need to mesh well to accomplish an impressive wedding photo collection. Meeting with your photographer is a great way to ask any questions, before actually hiring them, which will help you determine whether they are a perfect match for you. Also, booking your engagement photo session beforehand will allow you to see how your photographer is in action before the big day.

  1. I like that you suggested starting the search for a photographer a year in advance, so you have time to decide. I just got engaged and I’m not sure how to plan my wedding. I can see how it would be nice to start looking far ahead. That way I won’t feel rushed when deciding which photographer to use.
