Picking a photographer for your wedding should not only be about the pictures they take, but the connection you have with your photographer. You want to choose someone that makes you feel comfortable and knows how to bring out the best in you and your bride/groom. Once the day has passed, memories and photos are all your will have. Make sure they are something you want to refer back to over and over again!
Questions to ask when interviewing a photographer…
1. Ask to samples of their work. Do you like the “style” of their photos? Colors? Lighting?
2. Are you the wedding photographer who will actually take our pictures? If not, can we meet the person who will be? (Sometimes photographers work together and the person you interview is not the one who will be there on wedding day!)
3. How many hours are included with your packages?
4. Is there an overtime fee?
5. Do we get to have all the pictures on a CD or DVD to share?
6. How many other events will you also photograph that weekend?
7. What type of equipment will you be using? Will the lighting be intrusive?
8. How long will it take to get my proofs?
9. Can I look at a complete wedding album the you has shot?
10. Can I give you a list of shots that I want?
While you are talking, you will get a feel for what they are like. A good photographer will ask questions about YOU!
We work with many photographers. Recently, Joe Hendricks Photography did a photo shoot with us! We had a blast! Joe helped us to relax and just have a good time while he captured our personalities on camera. Here are few shots from last Sunday’s session.
Got to run and strike a pose!
