10 Questions to Ask Your Wedding Photographer


When it comes to picking a photographer, you need to do your homework ahead of time to ensure that you have wonderful, flattering pictures to take home, rather than missed opportunities and poor lighting. You need to have a useful set of questions on hand to ask each wedding photographer that you interview. These questions need to be able to show you exactly how good a choice of a photographer is likely to be. If you don’t have questions of your own, try the following.

1. Do you have a portfolio?

Professional photographers always publish their work on their websites. If you’re going with a photographer who doesn’t have a website, you can still ask to see a selection of photos sent to you over email. Once you see something you like, you need to ask to visit the photographer in person to see their prints. You want to do more to simply check out how technically sound the photos are. Truly professional photographers have a way with people, getting them to relax and open up. If a photographer seems to have many uncomfortable-looking brides in his portfolio, he may not be any good.
