Hiring a wedding photography can be easy if you ask the right questions and make sure you “click” with your photographer. Here are some questions I recommend asking when looking for a wedding photographer.
1. Describe your photography style.
Before you meet with a wedding photographer, look them up online and see if you like the style of their photography. Once you find a photographer who’s style you like, contact them for a consultation. When you meet with them during the consultation, be sure to see examples of past weddings they have photographed because viewing pictures online and in print are two very different things!
2. Can you walk me through you wedding process?
Each wedding photographer is different. Some use a second photographer others don’t. Some use portable lighting, follow a standard shot list, or just go with the flow of the day. Find a process that you feel most comfortable with and let your photographer know that up front.
3. What is included in each package?
Not only does this include the products included in each package but also if there are any additional charges that may come later.
4. Do you photograph multiple weddings per day?
Depending on the type of wedding you are having you may want the photographer for the entire day or only for a few hours. And if they are booking multiple weddings on one day, find out the timing between your wedding and the other one to make sure the photographer has enough time to get form one wedding to the next.
5. Does the photographer have any recommendations for other vendors you may still need to book?
If you are going to hire the photographer you are meeting with, ask if they can recommend any other vendors that you still need to hire for your wedding day. It is likely that if you like your photographer’s personality and feel comfortable with them that you will also feel comfortable with their recommendations of other vendors.
