5 Questions to Ask Your Photographer (Before Booking!!)
Chances are, this is your first time booking a photographer. And I’m gonna take a WILD guess and say this is your first time booking a professional photographer … EVER. So you’re feeling just a biiiit stressed about making such a big decision. Kinda like everything else in wedding planning I digress. Back on track — NO FEAR, your friendly neighborhood wedding photographer is here!!!
Here are 5 questions you must ask your wedding photographer before making the decision to book!!
ASK TO SEE A FULL GALLERY
It’s really important to see pictures from different lighting situations throughout the day (specifically low light situations).
ASK ABOUT SECOND PHOTOGRAPHERS
If you’re planning on having 100 guests or more at your wedding, a second photographer is definitely worth considering. Sometimes they’re included in your package, sometimes they’re a la carte. Ask your photographer what they recommend for your wedding!
Check out this blog post for more info about second photographers!
ASK WHAT THEIR BACKUP PLAN IS
This one stinks, but it’s important to know what their backup plan is if they can’t photograph your wedding last minute (this is also where a second photographer comes in handy!!).
ASK ABOUT ALBUMS
Are they included in your package? Is there a discount in your package? Does your photographer create custom albums? Do you have the option to create your own album? All very important questions, my friend!!
ASK FOR VENDOR RECOMMENDATIONS
Wedding photographers work with a ton of different vendors and can recommend vendors they’ve worked with before that would be great for your specific wedding!!
I hope this helped!! Wedding planning can be a doozy but just take everything one at a time and put in your due diligence and it will all be okay 🙂 For more information, check out my blog posts about 4 MORE questions to ask your wedding photographer and why you should book your dream photographer.
