You’re planning your big day and one of the major components of that day is capturing it on film. You want to know that while you’re enjoying your ceremony and reception there’s someone you can trust that is capturing all those precious moments. Finding the right person to handle your bridal photography and wedding ceremony pictures is imperative to having your moment captured for a lifetime. Here are a few things you need to discuss with your potential photographers when you’re planning a wedding.
Confirm the Date
Make sure that when you’re talking with them that they have your wedding date opened up. If they already have other weddings that day or have something planned, you don’t need to bother with any more questions.
You want to see what type of pictures they take and how they stage photos etc. You want to be able to see examples of their work to make sure they are a good fit with you and your spouse to be.
Discuss Wedding Shoots
Don’t be afraid to ask them how many weddings they’ve actually shot before. This can be a tell-tale sign before you get involved with a photographer that doesn’t quite know what they’re doing. Be sure you ask questions and ask to see some of their wedding shots if they’ve done them before.
Make sure you discuss with them if they have backup equipment for any case of something going out on location. Discuss with them what their plans are for inclement weather etc. You want to be totally comfortable with the wedding photographer you choose. Remember to ask questions, ask for portfolios and do your research to guarantee your day is captured just how you imagined.
