When must a wedding photographer be hired?
Nine months before your wedding, you should hire your photographer. Each upcoming bride and groom will feel differently about how much time they should allow to book of their wedding photographer. There isn’t really a correct or wrong answer to this question; this is just the average time I get hired.
Many professional photographers get booked anywhere from 9 – 18 months in advance for popular wedding dates
An excellent wedding photographer will invest in you before with an engagement shoot, during the wedding time you exchange your vows, and after the wedding with image post processing.
