Photographer/DJ Booked?

So we booked our venue and the church, but I haven't even looked into anything else like a photographer or DJ.  Are you guys book already or waiting? I feel like Nov. 2011 so far away, but don't know if should have this done already.

For us, booking a photographer and videographer was the most important so we actually booked them first... we haven't even booked anything else yet. We are taking our time with the other things. I would book your photographer early because the good ones get snatched up early and the may raise their prices. Our photographer raised their prices by like $700 after we booked them so we saved! :) DJ we have not found one yet either.

we decided to skip the videographer. Just too costly. We have a potential photographer who is high on my list, but we haven't booked it yet. We did book our dj. $1250 for both the ceremony and reception.


My venue, is another level of frustration, but I'm having it all in one hotel. I'm still in the process of trying to book it.

Im not doing the videographer and I booked my photographer first.  I wasn't going to book so soon but the photographer I was eyeing ran a special for his next 4 brides and I got several several hundred off.  My friend is a dj and I have a lot of friends that are singers (Im a singer) - so I will ask them to sing along with having my friend dj.

We have our photographer booked. She actually did a wedding this weekend so I'm anxious to see what she did! It's the same venue as ours too! As far as DJ, I thought my BIL was going to do it but he decided he wanted to be able to enjoy the wedding so he is going to ask his cousin to do it for us. Fingers crossed he says he will!

November does seem far away, but Thursday marks the 6 month date for me- we are in the home stretch.


 


We have booked everything and went with Abacus in South Plainfield. Alex is great and when he found out I was a designer for a living he knocked the price down since I know how much it really costs to change something in B/W and do spot coloring.....


 


As for the DJ- we went with DJ Jonathon, he's actually a freind of my sister in law and has done my venue in the past so it was a no brainer to choose him. He also made our deposit only 200 bucks when in fact it's suppose to be half I believe.


 


his website is www.djjonathonlopez.com


 


if anyone is interested.

Just booked our photographer! Still searching high and low for a videographer - FI insists on a 2 camera HD production *rolls eyes* LOL...men and their gadgets! His friend is going to be the DJ - which reminds me, I have to ask him if he confirmed with him yet! 197 days ladies....this is indeed the final stretch!
