Filed in Tips, Wedding  /  Updated on February 28, 2023 /

Whether you are searching for a photographer for a small intimate event, a milestone, or your wedding, I recommend taking the time to meet with them and get to know who they are. A big part of my workflow is built around getting to know my clients so that I can better serve them. I want clients to feel confident and comfortable in my work prior to booking as it helps establish the relationship, we will build leading up to wedding day. From questionnaires to consults, to meeting up in person – it truly helps build the level of service I provide and ensures that the day we take your photos, you’re as comfortable as possible with me. 

Asking the right questions will ensure that you understand the photographer’s services, their style, and ultimately what you are paying for. Here’s a list of ten intro questions that will help you make a decision when booking a photographer.

10 Questions to Ask a Wedding Photographer:

  1.  What is included in the total package cost and are there additional fees such as travel or taxes?
  2. What does your editing process look like and what type of editing/retouching is included in the images you deliver?
  3. How do you deliver your photos? Online/digital delivery, USB, photobook, prints?
