Have you read the latest issue of MS Weddings? It’s a good one. Visually stunning as always but what I really love is the expert advice. Seems lately couples and wedding vendors are playing limbo. What to expect, budgets, time management and overall inconsistency only somersaults into a hot mess. Currently, it’s the time of year for major bookings: Save-the-dates, invitations and the photographer. Start off by reading this photo and stationery article. I know hiring a fantastic photographer can be daunting but it doesn’t have to be! Now jots these things down: know why you like their style, know what photo products you must have,  know your minimum & maximum spending budget, know the photographer’s price point, when contacting please include as many details as possible, be open an honest with your budget (many of us are flexible if we think we’ll be a good fit), and most importantly…don’t flake out. Respond in a timely manner, if their services are no longer needed please let them know (short & sweet response). Most photographers book on a 1st come 1st serve basis. They are interviewing you  just as much as you are them. Happy booking!
