The Interview: The Wedding Photographer

There are a few things to consider before choosing your wedding photographer, and what will help you the most is knowing what questions to ask.

Feeling assured that your photographer is up to the task will relax you and give you the freedom to enjoy every moment of your wedding day knowing that someone you trust is there to capture it.

6 Questions to Ask Your Wedding Photographer:

1. How would you describe your style?

There are many styles of wedding photography. From traditional to photojournalistic to wedding fashion.

Where does the photographer you’re interviewing fit into that space? They should show you a wealth of work. Did their answer jibe with the photos they showed you? Do their photographs make you feel like you were at those weddings? Do they move you?

If so, then they could be the right photographer for you.

2. How long have you been shooting weddings? (How many weddings have you shot?)

You want to be confident that the photographer has the experience and expertise to shoot your wedding.

3. How many weddings do you shoot in a weekend?

It’s your special day, so your photographer should be full of energy and good cheer, not someone who shows up exhausted from a wedding the day before. You deserve your photographer’s 100% effort.

4. How many weddings have you photographed at our venue?

Having knowledge of your wedding venue can help a photographer be more spontaneous. If they have not shot there, make sure they are willing to scout the location prior to your event.

5. How many photographers and assistants will be at my wedding?

Knowing that the size of the crew is scaled to your wedding will make you much more comfortable.

6. What is included in the photography package?

Understanding what you will get, when it can be expected, and how extras are priced allows for no surprises.

Bottom line: Bring a list of questions, or you may not get what you were expecting!
