20 Questions You Should Ask Your Wedding Photographer...

20 Question you should ask your wedding photographer

Finding the right photographer for your wedding can be extremely difficult when there are so many to choose from out there. You only get one chance to get that perfect shot , so you need a photographer that has the experience and knowledge to deal with the pressures of a wedding day. Here are 20 questions that should help you find the perfect match.

1.  Is the photographer available?

This is an obvious question and if you are not willing to change your date and the photographer is unavailable then you must find another photographer.

2.  Can I see your portfolio?

This is a must!  By looking at a photographer’s portfolio you get an idea of the type of photos they would take at your wedding.

3.  How much do you charge?

Photographers  prices vary greatly, and remember the more experienced the photographer, the more they will charge.

4.  How many hours will your fee cover?

Most photographers will have a set number of hours they will work and will often charge extra if you want them to continue taking photos after the agreed period.

5.  Do you charge for accommodation and travel expenses?

Depending on how far your wedding is from where the photographer is based, they will often charge extra for travel and, if necessary, accommodation.

6.  How many weddings have you photographed?

In the world of photography, experience is paramount. The more weddings your photographer has photographed the better qualified they will be.

7. How would you describe your photography style?

 There are many different styles of photography.  Make sure your photographer has a style you like.

8.  Can I give you a list of specific shots we would like?

Many photographers don't like being told what to do. If you have specific shots you'd like, check with your photographer before the wedding to avoid any embarrassment.

9.  Do you have backup equipment?

Even the most expensive cameras can malfunction at a moment’s notice. Check that you photographer has a backup for every piece of equipment.

 

10. What happens if you are sick on the day?

Photographers are only human so check that they have another photographer that can take over, t should the need arise.

 

11.  Are you the photographer who will be taking the photos on the day?

Many larger photography companies will send which ever photographer is available on the day so check the photographer whose work you've seen, is the photographer that will be there on the day.

12. How will you be dressed?

 Your photographer should blend in with your guests.  Unfortunately, many photographers feel a T-shirt and jeans is suitable attire for a wedding.

13.  How long until I receive my photos after the wedding?

Realistically, you can wait anywhere from 2 weeks to 6 months for your photos. This depends on the individual photographer. If they tell you you'll have them the next day they're probably just trying entice you into making a booking with them.

14.  Will we have to sign a written contract?

Having a written contact is paramount.  A contract will ensure you receive everything you've been quoted on.

15.  Do you work with an assistant? If so are they included in the fee?

Many photographers may bring an assistant. Check they are included in the fee you've been quoted.

16.  Will you require a seat and meal at the reception?

A photographer who works during your reception will certainly need a meal. Check with the photographer and then make the necessary adjustments to the catering.

17. How much deposit do you require and when will the balance need to be paid?

Wedding photographers will often require you to pay a deposit before they book you in. Try pay a deposit as soon as possible to ensure you don't lose your booking.

18. Do you back-up our photos?  If so when?

Memory cards can have many things happen to them that will destroy the images.   A good photographer will back-up  your photos as soon as possible to minimise the risk of losing data.

19. Can I customise my package?

Everyone has different tastes so if you're not happy with the standard packages a photographer is offering, see if you can’t negotiate and build a package yourself.

20.  Are you familiar with my wedding venue?  If not, do you plan to check it out in advance?

Having previously worked at, or visited your wedding venue will enable your photographer to know where all the good spots are for photos. This will help the photo shoot move along smoothly and swiftly.
