I have a question about booking photographers. My wedding date is set for July 2014 (I have the ceremony and reception site booked :-) ) and I'm just starting to look at prices for photographers. One photographer told me he's already got a bunch of bookings for June 2014 and already one booking on my day. Are people really booking this far in advance (20 months) or was the guy just trying to get me to sign a contract with him as quick as possible. He claimed he had a bunch of bookings at a recent bridal show. I've emailed a few other photographers a few weeks ago (pre recent bridal show) and they all had my date open so I'm not sure how honest this photographer is being.
