5 Questions to Ask your Wedding Photographer



Wedding Photographer

It may seem like a lot of time and money to pour all into one single day of your life. And it is. While the wedding day is worth every dollar and minute you’ve spent, the only way to relive the day is to have phenomenal pictures that capture every special moment that takes places. And the only way you’re going to accomplish that is to make sure you and your photographer are on the same page. Here is what you should ask you photographer before-hand:

Wedding Photographer

1.      If my wedding goes longer than expected, will you stay and keep taking pictures?
Wedding photographers are either paid by the hour or paid a lump sum for a certain amount of time on the wedding day. If things get slowed down for some reason, you’re going to want to make sure your photographer is still there to capture those special moments.
2.      Do you work with an assistant?
If you want every important detail to be captured with quality, assistants can greatly help the photographer make this happen.
3.      What happens if you get sick?
While a photographer should be willing to work through some sniffles or cough, you’re going to want to make sure there is an equal back-up should the photographer come down with something that absolutely prevents them from coming.
4.      What are you going to wear?
If your wedding is going to be a formal one, a photographer who comes dressed in jeans and a T shirt is going to be an eye sore. Remember your photographer is going to be walking all over during the ceremony. You want them to look nice as well.
5.      Do you edit your photos? Is it included in the price?
The best photographers are going to spend time editing your photos before they share them with you. Any shadows or flaws in your pictures can be done away with making them perfect and worth the money you spent on them. Ask to make sure this is included in the cost.

  3. The photographer and videographer we hired to cover our wedding was recommended by the venue administrator. They've worked together several times already so this saved us time and effort scouting for a reliable coverage.
