Christmas has passed and seems like an etrnity ago! This time of year wedding enquiries for weddings in Shropshire and Birmingham are comming flying in thick and fast!
So I thought I would share this cautionary tale for would be brides...
Last week I received a referal from a fellow shropshire wedding photographer who was booked but had seen a bride. Unfortunately I couldnt make the date either. She was very upset and was starting to feel that all of her first choice photographers were booked.
I fully commend brides to shop around, keep their options open and check out different photographers. But sometimes decisions are neccessary.
Thankfully, this doesn't happen that often. But there are still leasons to be learned.
Wedding photographers and suppliers only have only a finite ammount of wedding dates to sell through out the wedding season, (May to October). Once these dates have gone, they have gone!
When ever brides come to see me I would never try and hard sell a date, and always tell them to go and have a chat about it with their fiancee, but not to take too long before making a decision.
My advice to any would be bride that is getting married on a main weekend in peak season would be these 3 things...
1. If you find somebody who's work you like
2.If you like them
3.If they are within budget...
make the booking.
Holding on to try and save a few £'s or just not committing could result in disappointment.
