Picking a wedding photographer can be a daunting task, there’s so many photographers to choose from with their own unique styles. To make it a little easier for you we have some must ask questions to ask your short-listed photographers.
Ask to see a sample album
Don’t rely on highlights of a wedding your photographer has shot, it’s difficult to get a complete picture of what your shots will end up looking like. We recommend asking to see photos from the whole day, including morning prep, the ceremony, individual and group shots, and of course the photos of the bride and groom dancing the night away. Seeing a sample album will also give you an idea of whether the photographer’s style will fit with your own.
Find out how many weddings they’ve photographed
This will give you an idea of the photographer’s experience. So much happens on a wedding day, and you don’t want your photographer to miss any of those key moments. Make sure they’ve had enough experience to know where to be at the right moment, deal with different lighting situations and not be taken by surprise when your father in law breaks out in a 60s twist.
Have them tell you how many photos they’ll provide
On average photographers take about 600 photos on a wedding day. It’s good to know how many edited shots they’re planning to provide you with.
Make sure you get the timing
Waiting for months in anticipation to see how your wedding photos turned out is not fun for any bride. Check with your photographer what date you can expect to get your photos so you can pencil it in your diary & get the tissue box ready for some tears.
