Question

WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER?

Answer

Park Ave Studio recommends selecting your wedding photographer as soon as you have chosen your venue – both to ensure your preferred photographer's availability, and because the right photographer makes planning every other part of your wedding day much easier. Park Ave Studio understands all the steps that go into your wedding day, and we work with you to factor in all the critical details – the time needed for hair & makeup, or for family to travel from the ceremony to the reception site, and taking into considering the special needs of older relatives and other members of the wedding party. We make sure you've got the right timeline set from the start, then help keep everything on-track, leaving you free to concentrate on your day of celebration.
