Be very firm with this aspect of enquiry. Usually, wedding photographers have a team designated for specific tasks. If you like the work of a specific photographer, the first phase of questions should always be regarding ‘Avability.’ Here is the list of questions you can ask your photographer. 

  1. Are you available for all the shoots and the wedding day?

  3. If you are having a team, then please arrange the meetup with the whole team. 

Background Check Is A Must: 

You definitely don’t have your wedding mementos; the wedding photographs are not in sync with your memories of the big day. Interviewing wedding photographers and reviewing the portfolio should be one of the driving factors for choosing the correct photographers and team.

  2. Reviewing your portfolio will not only help you to find the common ground between the photographer’s style but will also give you a reality check! 


Pricing, Packages And Photography Style: 

This is the last but the most important factor of availing of photography services. 

  1. Enquire about the standard package and the number of photographs and films involved in the package. 

  2. Enquire about the contract and advance deposit charges. 

  3. Is your photographer allowing you to customize the package? If yes, then move forward with the monetary aspect. 

  4. Ask them to elaborate on their photography style. Explain your vision and then allow them to explain their idea for the same vision.
