EPISODE #14: WHAT TO ASK A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER BEFORE HIRING ONE PART 1
Listen and share this episode:
Selecting a wedding photographer to capture your special day is a big decision and once you sign that contract, there’s no going back. So it’s important that you find out as much as you can about what to expect BEFORE you commit to hiring one.
In this episode of a two-part series, we’ll be chatting about some of the fundamental questions you should be asking to determine if a photographer is right for you. When the time comes to sit down or chat over the phone with a photographer you like, don’t be shy to ask them how many years of experience they have and if wedding photography is their main profession.
Perhaps ask if they have photographed at your wedding venue before and if you’re having a second shooter, then find out who they are and what their experience level is.
You might also want to ask some specific questions about your style or wedding theme. Perhaps you’re having a cultural celebration and want a photographer who understands the rituals that will be taking place. Or maybe you’ll be getting married in a church that requires particular sensitivities.
Hiring a wedding photographer is a big investment, not only in terms of money but whether the images you come away with are going to meet your expectations. So take the time to nut out who is right for you and who might not be on the same wave length.
