For a wedding a lot must be planned – whether the location, the food and drink for the guests, the invitations, the flower decoration or the ceremony in the church. Many couples think that some things can also be booked at short notice, so a few weeks before the big event – but this is a mistake.
If you would like to hire a really qualified and highly professional wedding photographer in Switzerland, you should also contact them at an early stage and secure the desired date with a contract and a deposit. The same applies to a wedding video in Switzerland as well as location and other service providers. What is the ideal for this? It is recommendable at least 10-18 months before the wedding, but still a year before the search to start and especially then quickly with our photographer and videographer team to make the date clear. Why? Many good service providers around the wedding ceremony and the most beautiful day in life are very much in demand and for a long time busy. Because a wedding photographer can only take part at one wedding and there are very few Saturdays in the summer, so Fridays have become more popular.
Our tip: If you have set your wedding anniversary date in Switzerland, contact your caused service provider immediately. From our experience we recommend a pre-planning of 10 to 18 months. In the beginning it is of course sufficient to discuss the date with the photographer and to submit the photo order.
However, there are countless advantages for an early engagement of a wedding photographer or videographer: you have enough time to prepare the details of their most beautiful day with a professional, to express their wishes or to pretend locations. A good photographer can show them several complete wedding portraits, suggest ideas and work out a dream concept together. After all, they want to have special wedding photos and videos of their dream ceremony and of the whole wedding. The more time we have, the more we can go into detail, and work out the creative concept. It usually begins with the e-session months before the wedding. And very often the bride wishes the creative shooting (the couple photography) a few days after the wedding, which also has many advantages, For such extra shootings, however, we need a little more time, but incredibly beautiful and spectacular wedding pictures are created.
Conclusion: As early as possible! Send a contact form, request a non-binding offer from your favourite service provider and pay attention to a proper contact where everything is well described, then nothing can go wrong!
