Hello, bride or groom to be! Picking a wedding photographer is no easy feat, but I’ve compiled a list of 12 questions to ask your wedding photographer to ensure you pick someone who you feel is a fantastic fit. Let’s dive in!
How many weddings have you shot? How long have you been a wedding photographer?
What type or genre of work would you call most similar to your style?
Do you include an engagement shoot in your wedding packages?
Have you ever shot a wedding at our wedding venue before?
What is your plan if gosh forbid something happens to you (you’re sick, a family emergency comes up, etc.)? Do you have a second shooter lined up?
Will I also have digital rights to my photos?
How many shooting hours would you recommend for our wedding?
What is your turnaround time?
Are you insured?
Do you offer color correction or basic retouching services, or is this an additional cost?
How do you calculate travel fees?
Can I see the full galleries of a few of your most recent wedding shoots?
Although there are many different questions to ask your wedding photographer, this is a solid handful to get you thinking. If you have any questions about this list or the process of a wedding photographer in general, don’t hesitate to reach out! I’d love to chat wedding details.
