Will the wedding photographer we want to hire hold our date or call us if someone else requests that date?
Don't expect your wedding photographer to hold your date, unless you've signed a contract or paid a retainer fee. Although the exact policy may differ from wedding photographer to wedding photographer, many of them will require a non-refundable retainer and a signed contract to hold your date. This benefits both you and the wedding photographer: You benefit by securing a wedding photographer who has now set aside your wedding date, is contracted to provide services to you, and will not entertain inquiries from other parties for the same date. The wedding photographer benefits by obtaining the guarantee to work and receive payment for his or her services. It’s always in your best interest to book your wedding photographer as soon as you have chosen one whose work you love.
