We meet with people on Skype all the time.  Once the awkwardness of the fact that you’re on the internet looking at each other through computer screens fades, you should basically just be talking about your personalities and expectations of your wedding day.  The photographer should answer any of your questions, and go over pricing at the end if you haven’t already hashed that out. If your personalities didn’t click then maybe you should keep looking.  That’s the same advice I’d give to someone who did an in person meeting.  Personality mesh is the #1 factor in selecting a photographer.

I agree with continuum, personality mesh is the #1 factor in selecting a photographer.

I photograph a LOT of destination weddings and am on skype with them a lot – which is amazing for both my clients and myself to get a feel for each others personalities.

I’m not saying you should feel like best friends with them, but you should definately feel comfortable once the initial introduction warms up.

Thank goodness for the wonders of the modern world!!

Good luck with the planning (and if that photographer doesnt work out there is always me! 🙂
