Best Tips on How to Hire Your Wedding Photographer

How to Hire Your Wedding Photographer

When planning your wedding, it is very important not to forget hiring a professional photographer. Be picky, be diligent and ask questions! Remember, this photographer will be capturing your love, your memories and your story on this beautiful day! While, of course, the couple is the MOST important thing on a wedding day, it is vital to have memories and photographs that you and your spouse can physically look back on and even share with future generations after the wedding day is over. Also, the human eye can overlook intricate details during a generally chaotic day: Your mother beaming at you with pride, your groom shedding a tear as you walk down the aisle… these are candid and very intimate moments that only a photographer can capture forever!

Preliminary Background Questions to Ask Your Photographer

  • Do you have Availability on my wedding day? Will you be shooting it alone or with an assistant/multiple assistants? How far in advance do we have to book?
  • Do you have backup equipment (i.e. cameras, lenses, etc)?
  • Are you a registered business? Are you insured?
  • How long have you been shooting weddings? How many weddings of this size have you done? Could we see a gallery of your previously shot weddings?
  • Have you ever worked with any of our other vendors before ( Videographer, Florist, DJ, etc)?
  • How would you describe your photography style?
  • Do you like to capture more candid moments, or pose a lot of your pictures?
  • Are you a full/part time Wedding Photographer, or do you just do it as a hobby?
  • How will you coordinate with the videographer?
  • What questions do you have for us?
