Weddings are a once-in-a-lifetime event for couples! So, when it comes to your wedding photographer, you want to make sure you are getting the very best. After all, these photos will be something that lasts a lifetime! But before committing to any photographer, it is important to ask them some questions in order for you both to have a clear understanding of each other’s expectations. 

These are the questions that might be helpful for you when it comes to hiring a wedding photographer.

What is your photography style?

This question will help you get an idea of the photographer’s aesthetic and how it will mesh with your vision for the wedding photos. 

This is one of the best questions to ask your future wedding photographer, to know their style because each photographer has their own specific style. The style that you want may not be in line with what that wedding photographer is used to. You don’t want to have average work for your wedding photos. Instead, you deserve work that has been done by an expert who knows their craft inside and out! 

Will you be the one shooting my wedding?

It’s important to have a talk or a meeting with the photographer for your wedding! You need to understand if you are hiring a specific person or a team for your wedding! There are many benefits for both sides. Speaking from experience, we have a team of carefully crafted individuals whose style all tightly coincides with each other. We have spent multiple years refining our processes to perfectly match the work that you see on our site!

How long have you been shooting weddings? How many weddings have you photographed?

Experience counts, so it is important to know the photographer’s level of experience when it comes to wedding photography. This question will also give you an idea of how passionate they are about wedding photography. Having a passion-drivien photographer is infinitely better than someone who just does this for a job! When you hire photographers who LOVE their craft, their work comes from their heart and you can DEFINITELY see it in their images! The work speaks for itself!

What packages do you offer and what does each include?

You will want to ensure you are getting the services and products you need, so find out all the photographer has to offer! Many photographers create custom packages if you have specific requests!

Are there additional fees for prints or digital images?

Make sure you understand exactly what is included in the photographer’s package and any extra costs associated with them. The last thing you need after a massive wedding is to have confusion with what you are receiving from your photographer! These types of images/prints will usually take a couple of weeks after your wedding! So, it’s better to know what images you will receive after the wedding and what that would cost! 🙂

There are still a lot of questions that you may ask your future wedding photographer, but remember that the best photographer for your wedding is someone who you really vibe with, someone that will make you AS COMFORTABLE AS POSSIBLE, someone with who you absolutely fall in LOVE with their style, and lastly, someone who offers exactly what you need in your wedding package!

Hopefully, this blog helps you to choose the best photographer for your big day! 😀
