Questions To Ask When Hiring A Photographer – Most people book a venue first and then other suppliers. I have been booked as far in advance as three years and at the other extreme one days notice.

It’s normally around the 12 to 18 month mark. I’ve have known couples arrange their wedding date around wether their photographer was available, however most photographers will not hold a date for more than a few days without a signed contract and a deposit

Q. Do you mind wedding guests taking photos at the same time as you?
