How will the photos be backed up?  Will she bring spare equipment with her in case the camera she is using malfunctions?  What is her policy in the event that she is unable to make your wedding?

Will you recieve digitals? Getting ALL the rights to the photos will be unlikely (and rather uncommon). That’d be the photographer completely giving up all ownership of the photos and thus unable to use them for his/her own marketing or portfolio. Often photographers will give you limited rights (such as printing and some distribution rights, but no editing or selling rights).

How long will the photos be backed up for? How will you recieve them? Is he/she strict about family members taking photos? What happens if he/she is ill or physically unable to photograph the wedding?

extra equipment, does she shoot with 2 cards?  How are the photos backed up and for how long.  What format and how do you get your pictures?

Make sure that you get non-watermarked HD quality photos on either a CD order a thumbdrive. 

A lot of photography companies are starting to charge you if you want print-quality photos or have their watermark removed.
