I’m not really sure what I should be asking photographers… I know things are very subjective to soo many factors… Like if you’re having an outside wedding… you need to make sure you ask your potential photographer x y and Z…. or What shots are really important for the photographer to get, like a lot with my bridesmades and of the groom and groomsmen… but the details are not top priority.. yadda yadda….My venue http://www.greengablesestates.com one stop shop, the ceremony and reception is here, and it’s private.
Also… I like more of an editorial photographer… check out one I just really love…. Thoughts Bees..? http://www.trevorvieweg.com I love candit shots…. I think he captures them well…

His photography is nice. I would ask to see an entire wedding from a photographer, that will give you and idea of how they photograph, instead of just a snapshot of the best shots that they chose.
I didn’t ask a lot of technical questions myself, it was really more of how I felt around the photographer and what is provided for the price.

@ComplexCarb: I like the photographer you’re considering!
If you were looking at a photographer where I had serious concerns over the quality of their work, I’d have a lot of questions for you to ask. But honestly, a good, experienced photographer’s website should answer all the questions for you… if you want to know if they can handle a certain challenge (for example, night photography or photography in the rain) just find where they’ve done it and take a look.
Otherwise, I think it’s more about getting to know the photographer than about grilling them. You really shouldn’t be hiring anyone where based on their website, you feel it’s necessary to grill them about their skills and experience. Honestly if you have that problem, you’re not looking at the right person. Just see if you and they seem to click! Ask them a few basic questions about how they got started or why they like to shoot weddings and see how you feel about their answers. If you know you like their style and you like chatting with them, you’re ready to hire!

Do they have backup equipment of the same quality as their primary equipment? What happens if they’re sick or something happens – who will fill in? Are they insured? Do they edit all of the images they deliver or only some? How many images can you expect on average?
The photographer you posted is using a particular photoshop filter on their images to make them look like film so that may be what you’re talking about in terms of style. I don’t’ see a particular style to the actual content of their photos, it may just be the editing that is attracting you and it seems like EVERYONE is editing that way these days. Be sure to ask yourself if you think you’ll still want the trendy editing on your images 10 or 20 years down the road – it’s an important consideration that a lot of couples don’t think about when they hire someone.
