Finding and choosing a wedding photographer that is right for you is no exception. No doubt there’ll be questions running through your mind such as, “When should I hire my photographer? How much do I need to save to pay for the service? What do I need to know about the service?”

Lief: How soon should couples plan to book your services before their wedding?

Colourstone: We are normally booked up about 18 months in advance. This does depend on the time of year! We get booked up 18 months in advance for June to Early September weddings. After Christmas till early April we can book 6 to twelve months in advance some years. Christmas weddings are getting more popular too, so book at least 10 months in advance to guarantee a booking from 20th December to early January.

Lief: How much roughly should they budget for services like yours? Does this change with different seasons and days of the week?
