Five questions to ask your wedding photographer...
This post came from a conversation between someone who is already married. They told me something very interesting. Their wedding photographer was hired and shot the wedding but afterwards, when the bride got her photos back, she was disappointed. The pro was a "pro" and definitely knew what he was doing, but yet he didn't deliver the images how the bride wanted. He gave her a USB stick with unedited photos (including some that were so dark and out of focus!) Yikes!
She also gave the photographer a list of shots that she wanted. And a lot of them were not "checked off."
This got me thinking about how I make a relationship with a client before I shoot their wedding. It even reminded me of the last wedding that I did. I was given a list of pictures that the bride expected to have and I kept them in a fashionable fanny pack the day off- to make sure that I fulfilled them.
Hiring your wedding photographer might be daunting! There are so many choices on google and on Instagram that you love- how do you know who to pick?
You might even sit down with a potential photographer and talk to them over coffee.
What would you ask them?
As a photographer, this is what I would expect a client to ask me:
1. "What makes you passionate about photography and wedding photography especially?"
