  8. When should you hire your photographer and videographer? (Suggest between 9-15 months)

One of the most important decisions you’ll make when planning your wedding is who to hire as your photographer and videographer. To make sure you get the best professionals for your wedding, it’s recommended that you start looking and booking them between 9-15 months before your wedding day. This gives you enough time to research potential vendors, review their portfolios, and schedule consultations to discuss your vision and expectations. Keep in mind that the most popular photographers and videographers tend to get booked quickly, especially for peak wedding season, so it’s better to secure your preferred vendors early on. Booking your photographer and videographer early also gives them enough time to prepare and plan for your wedding day, ensuring that they can capture all the important moments and deliver the best results.

Jevan to Alithea

“I promise to love and care for you, and I will try in every way to be worthy of your love.
I will always be honest with you, kind, patient and forgiving.
I promise to try to be on time.
But most of all, I promise to be a true and loyal friend to you.
I love you.”

Amy and Russell to one another

“You are my lover and my teacher,
You are my model and my accomplice,
And you are my true counterpart.
I will love you, hold you and honor you,
I will respect you, encourage you and cherish you,
In health and sickness,
Through sorrow and success,
For all the days of my life.”
