Planning a wedding is a lot of work. You have to figure out who you want to invite, where you want it to be held, what food you want served, what dress you want to wear and so much more. Then there’s the photography. After all, nothing says “I love you” like pictures that will last forever! But how do you know which photographer will provide the best service for your big day? Here are some questions that I always ask when meeting with potential photographers:
There are a few things to consider when deciding on a photographer’s style. Do they shoot in black and white or color? Do they use digital cameras or film? What do their photos look like? If you’re looking for something specific, such as an album full of black-and-white images, make sure your photographer can deliver what you want.
If you’re not sure what you want, ask to see examples of their work. Look at how they edit their photos and get a sense of what kind of style they have. Ask for some samples of their work and if possible, meet with them in person before booking your wedding day.
You can also check out their website, if they have one. If you like what you see, consider contacting them directly to find out more about their rates and packages.
You’ll want to ask them what packages they offer, and what’s included in each one. Make sure you know how many hours of coverage you will get for each package, as well as any extras (such as engagement photos or prints) that are part of your chosen package before signing anything!

My goal is to capture the moments that make you feel like a princess on your wedding day. I want to take pictures of you, your family, and your friends living in the moment and enjoying themselves—because that’s what really matters!
The cost of a photographer depends on the type of photography you want.
For example, if you hire a wedding photographer and they only work for one day, their price will be higher than if they were to work for two days. The same is true with engagement sessions: if you have a 6-hour shoot with them, expect your bill to be more than if it’s just 2 hours.
The reason behind this is because photographers need time to set up lighting and other equipment before each shot; there’s also editing involved in post-production (making sure that everything looks perfect).
You’ll want to know how many hours of coverage you are getting. This is especially important if you are having an evening wedding, as some photographers offer less than eight hours and those extra hours could be crucial for capturing all the details.
If you book with a photographer who offers longer coverage than what you need, make sure that they have no issues with rescheduling their day so that they can come back and finish up any missing shots later on in the day.
You should also ask about any discounts for booking longer with them or booking more services from them (like engagement photography).
If you are getting married in an area with a large number of photographers, ask them to send you a list of their top ten best shots from the year. They should be able to provide this for free, but if they want to charge you for it, then find someone else.
The best photographers are not only talented artists, but also great business people. They should be able to explain to you exactly how they work, what their prices are and what services they provide. They should also have a portfolio of previous weddings that they have shot so that you can get an idea of the quality of the photos they produce.
If you are not in the area where they live, ask if they can provide references. If they do not have any, then move on to someone else.
Before you book your wedding photographer, it’s important to ask them about any extra charges. In addition to the base package price, many photographers tack on additional fees for travel, albums and engagement sessions.
● Travel: If your wedding is outside of their normal service area (for example, if you live in Los Angeles but want your photos taken in San Francisco), then they may charge an additional fee for travel time and expenses.
● Additional prints: Most photographers offer unlimited prints for their clients as part of their packages; however some vendors may charge extra for additional prints that go beyond what’s included in their standard package prices–or even require a per-print cost upfront before taking any photos!
● Albums/prints at other sizes: Some vendors charge extra if they need to produce different sizes or types of albums than what was originally negotiated during contract negotiations (e.g., 8×10″ instead of 5×7″). This can add up quickly depending on how many different products are ordered by each client! Be sure to ask about pricing details upfront so there aren’t any surprises down the road when it comes time pay these bills…
● Cancellation fees: It’s important to have a contract in place that outlines what happens if a client cancels the wedding. Some vendors will charge an additional fee for cancellations (usually around 50% of the total amount due). Other vendors may offer a full refund if a client cancels within a certain amount of time before the wedding date; however, this can vary depending on their policy. If it’s possible for you to get out of a contract without penalty if something comes up and you’re forced to cancel, then that might be worth considering.
The most important thing to keep in mind is that you need to be able to afford the services of a wedding photographer so that you’ll be able to enjoy your big day! Making sure to get all of these details worked out before signing on the dotted line can help ensure that your investment goes where it belongs: making memories for years to come.
Asking questions is a great way to get to know your prospective photographer and make sure that they’re the right fit for your wedding day. The more questions you ask, the better prepared you’ll be when it’s time to book a photographer.
Here are some things to consider when talking with potential photographers:
● How much experience do they have?
● What kind of style do they shoot in?
● Do they offer the number of hours of coverage that fits with your budget and timeline?
● What kind of equipment do they use–and what extras might cost extra (e.g., drone photography)?
How long does it take for them to edit their photos? Do they offer any post-production services, such as album design or custom retouching? How do they handle your wedding day timeline–and how much input will you have? If you’re hiring a videographer, what kind of footage do they typically shoot (e.g., cinematic vignettes or more traditional coverage)?
Asking your wedding photographer the right questions is one of the most important parts of your wedding planning. It’s also something that many couples forget or don’t know how to go about doing. Here are some questions that you should ask yourself when hiring a wedding photographer:
