Now for those questions...
What's your photography style?
Let's start by finding out their artistic vibe. Take a look at their portfolio and see if their style aligns with your vision. It's essential to ensure they can capture those dreamy shots you're after.
Can you show me a complete wedding album you've recently shot?
Don't settle for just a few pretty pictures. Ask to see a full wedding album they've worked on to get a sense of their consistency and how they capture the entire story of the day.
How do you handle tricky lighting situations?
Weddings can throw all sorts of lighting challenges your way, from dimly lit venues to outdoor ceremonies. Find out how they tackle these situations and ensure they can work their magic regardless of the lighting conditions.
What's your backup plan if something goes wrong with your equipment?
Technical mishaps can happen, but that shouldn't ruin your day. Make sure your photographer has a solid backup plan in case of equipment failure, so you won't miss a single precious moment.
How do you organize and capture group shots and formal portraits?
If you have specific group shots or formal portraits in mind, don't be shy about expressing your desires. Ask about their experience in setting up and capturing these shots to ensure everyone looks their best.
Will you personally be the one photographing our wedding?
You want to know exactly who will be behind the camera on your big day. Clarify if the person you're speaking with will be the one capturing those beautiful moments or if they plan to delegate the task to someone else.
What is your approach to posing? Do we need to come prepared with ideas?
Strike a pose! Find out how the photographer approaches posing and if they have any specific guidance or suggestions. You can also ask if they welcome any ideas or inspirations you may have.
How long until we receive the final edited photos?
Anticipation is part of the journey, but you also want to know when you can relive those amazing memories. Get an idea of the timeline for receiving your fully edited photos, so you can start sharing and cherishing them.
Can you share some reviews or testimonials from previous clients?
Let's hear it from others who have been in your shoes. Ask if they can provide reviews or testimonials from previous clients. It's reassuring to get insights into their professionalism and the quality of their work.
What's your policy if we need to cancel or make changes?
Life can throw unexpected curveballs, and plans may need to be adjusted. Familiarize yourself with their cancellation and refund policy, just in case any changes arise.
