FINDING THE RIGHT WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER FOR YOUR WEDDING DAY CAN BE TOUGH. YOU WANT TO FIND SOMEONE WHO SUITS YOUR STYLE, THAT YOU GET ALONG WITH AND SHOOTS YOUR DAY, YOUR WAY. HERE ARE MY TOP 10 QUESTIONS TO ASK WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS.
1. Are you available on our wedding date?
This one is pretty obvious and should be one of the first things you should ask, if they’re not available on
your wedding day, you can remove them from your list.
2. Do you offer coverage at my wedding venue?
Most photographers only cover a certain area. Make sure you discuss the venue and location for portraits with your photographer.
3. What is your photographic style?
Every photographer has their own style – and it needs to match the style of wedding photography
that you re after. Before you engage with a photographer it is a good idea to have a look through some
examples of their work either on their website or social media.
4. Are you the photographer who will be photographing my wedding?
It’s important to know who will be the one actually taking photos at your wedding. Ensure that you get along with the photographer as they will be spending most of the day with you at your wedding.
5. How many camera people and cameras will there be on the day?
More photographers can mean different angles and perhaps more photos. Ensure you know how many people will be assisting on the day.

7. What are your wedding photography packages and are there any extra costs?
Many photographers offer a wide range of services, but even those with set packages can incur hidden costs if you change your mind or want a little extra. Ensure you discuss the cost in full with your photographer.
8. Will the photos be edited and enhanced?
Most photographers will enhance and edit photographs. This generally includes brightening the photo, bringing out the color and fixing skin blemishes. Talk to your photographer to see to what extent this is done.
9. Can I see some examples of your recent weddings?
Ensure that you have seen recent examples even full weddings that the photographer has attended and photographed. This way you know exactly what type of photos you will receive.
10. MAKE SURE YOU GET ALONG WITH THE PHOTOGRAPHER
