When You Should Start Shopping For A Wedding Photographer

Posted in General Wedding Tips, Wedding Photography Tips, Wedding Vendors

If you are wondering when you should start your search for your wedding photographer, you are not alone. Wedding checklists can be helpful to an extent but they should only be used as a basic guideline. When you should start searching for your wedding vendors is specific to your personal situation and your unique wedding.We at Jolie Images recommend that you begin your search as soon as you set your wedding date. This is for a number of reasons. The most important being that you can lock down your date and be assured the wedding photographer of your choice. Another good reason is that you will get current prices of the services as most wedding vendors increase their prices every year. Lastly, you can check it off your list so you don’t have to rush as your date approaches(and trust me, it will come fast :-). There are many more benefits to choosing your vendors right away as opposed to waiting. At Jolie Images, we only require a small down payment to hold your date, your photographer and of course, your prices.

We must warn you that if you choose an independent photographer, you make sure that he or she has good references and that they can guarantee you a backup in the event that they will not be able to photograph your wedding. We have heard horror stories of brides and grooms giving their money to a photographer only to realize a couple of days before their wedding that their photographer is nowhere to be found- with their money. When choosing a reputable, insured and established photography studio like Jolie Images, you will always be assured that no matter what happens between your wedding planning and your wedding date, you will have a photographer. We have back-up photographers for those unlikely but unfortunate case when a photographer cannot shoot due to injuries or (we hate to say it) death.

So in summary, shop ahead, don’t procrastinate, book early and do your research before you hand over any money. It is well worth the price and the peace of mind that you will get from doing so.

If you are interested in our services, please contact us and let us know how we can help make your wedding planning early.
