Wait. That title is wrong. Shouldn’t it say, “4 Questions to ask a Wedding Photographer?” No. Here’s why, before shopping around, you need to decide what you’re looking for in a photographer. And no, the number one question should not be budget.
Shouldn’t this be in your top list? NO! Here’s why. You can find a million photographers who will shoot your wedding for $1500, or $3000, or whatever budget happens to be. You need a better way to narrow down your search. You can search based on budget once you find an answer to the other questions.
Top Questions to ask Yourself
- How do I want to view my photos on my 20th anniversary? Are you really going to sit around looking at that data DVD of photos?
- What’s my style? Do you like trendy or timeless photos?
- What are the key events I want covered? Do you want getting ready all the way through last call for drinks?
- Posed or Photojournalistic? Well, the question is more complex than that, but do you prefer candids or posed photos?
This is a basic list of questions to ask yourself before ever contacting a photographer. This will help you immensely in the process of narrowing down your search. It will also help you to set a realistic budget for photography. In the next few weeks, I’ll cover each of these topics in more detail to help make your search fun and enjoyable.
