If you’ve decided to hold your wedding in peak marriage season, from September to December, then you might have to put in a little more elbow grease. It’s best to remember that while your wedding will feel unique, it’s far from the only one happening at that time.
That said, vendors including photographers and videographers will be in high demand. Once you set your date and book them immediately. However, if you have a date range in mind, you could let your photographers and videographers of choice know ahead of time. Of course, alert them when you’ve selected their specific date.
Even before you set the date and confirm who you’ll be working with, it might be worth asking different vendors when their busiest times are and make a decision based on that. This way, you’ll have some backups just in case others fall through.
The information for peak wedding dates also applies to holidays. While it is also possible that your vendor may be working on another wedding during Christmas or New Year, it’s even more possible that they may be taking a holiday vacation.
If this is the case, they’re most likely not shooting any weddings at all and are out of service until the holidays end. Once again, when you reach out to different photography and videography vendors, it’s best to ask when they’re fully booked or when they’re not in operation at all.
Once you’ve booked your videography and/or photography team for your big day, be sure to let them into almost every facet of your plan. Let them get familiar with the other vendors who are also responsible for making your big day one to remember.
Additionally, be clear what your vision is for the kind of photos and videos you hope to get out of your wedding. Like anything, clear communication is crucial to everything running smoothly. Communication is necessary all the way from booking to receiving the actual material once you’ve tied the knot.
So, to summarize, when it comes to booking your photography/videography vendors consider the three pieces of advice given in this guide. Sure, some issues may arise, but that’s only natural when it comes to fitting all the pieces of this grand puzzle together. Again, communication is key.
Know when your wedding will take place before dialing up the photography/videography vendors, let them know nearly a year in advance and be cognizant of how your big day might fit with their booking schedule.
Always remember that while you’re giving these vendors business, their business is making sure you and your spouse-to-be can have photos or footage of your first days as a married couple, mementos that you’ll cherish for years to come and pass down to future generations.
