We’ve put together a list of what we believe are the best questions for wedding photographers! As someone who lives and breathes weddings, I knew what to do when booking my vendors. However, I still found that I ran into questions myself. Even after being a wedding vendor for over 10 years. After my wedding chaos was finally over, I reflected on how I felt as a bride-to-be. With that said, I realized that most brides have never actually been brides. So where do you start? What questions should you ask?
With that said, today I’m helping you determine what questions you need to ask when searching for your wedding photographer to-be.
What are the Best Questions for Wedding Photographers?
Firstly, are they currently available for your ideal date? If you are still flexible with dates, mention that to them during your inquiry.
For example: “We aren’t currently set on a specific date yet. What dates in October do you still have available? We can crossmatch them with our venue!”
Secondly, ask them about themselves. This might be unexpected. When planning a wedding, it’s all about you. You and your partner are the complete center of attention during the process. However, it’s extremely important that you have a connection with your photographer (or any vendor!). Allow them to tell them about themselves and their workflow process. Learn more about their personality and how they work behind the camera. This is SO IMPORTANT.
Thirdly, ask them to describe their wedding photography style. I never turn down the chance to explain my work and photography process to my clients. I am always more than happy to tell them why I feel like I am the best choice for them.
