In many parts of the country weddings happen all year 'round.  In the Northeast, the majority of couples seem to choose the narrow window of months between "wicked cold" and "wicked hot".  That would be April through June, then September through October.  During the "wicked" months, brides are apparently all preparing for Wedding Season and creating Pinterest boards.  Wedding photographers have a love/hate relationship with Pinterest boards.  I encourage them and love to use them so I can see what makes my clients tick and get new ideas, but I tell clients up front that if they choose us their decision should be based upon what they see in our portfolio because that's our shooting style.  As artists the way we shoot comes from something deep inside us.  It's far, far more than knowing how to get the light right and push the buttons on a nice camera.  If you look at our images and they make you feel something then we're the ones for you.  If you want to hire a photographer based on whether he or she is willing to copy the blueprint of another photographer's style to make you happy then you might miss out on the biggest key to great images, and that is the flow of the photographer's artistic energy.  This is easily as significant as technical ability with the camera and lighting and is definitely something worth thinking about.
