The main things are cost and portfolio. With our photographer, we loved the photography already, and meeting with her she just had a great personality. Things just clicked and we booked her the next day.

We didn’t know much going into it, but they deal with that so often they know what information to give. We talked about her lighting styles, how she got her poses (we have a photojournalist so it wasn’t about posing as much as capturing moments), etc. I think the portfolio says the most though.

What are the different packages available? How much are they each? Can they be customized? 

I’m assuming you checked out their website or have seen their pictures

Ask if you will have the rights to your photos?

How long does it take to get the pictures back?

How many hours do they think you ‘ll need?

Do you include engagement photos?

How much do you charge for extra time?

Do you work with an assistant?

Do you need a space for your equipment? (I was a guest at a wedding recently where the photographer had a table outside with her equipment, multiple lenses, etc.)

What is your backup plan if you cannot make it? Do you have an associate that could come in your place?

Are you familiar with the venue? Should we do a walk through/ come to the rehearsal?

Do they do multiple weddings? 

What time frame they work with.. will they adjust to suit your needs… 8 hours coverage… getting ready, ceremony, formals, part or reception or ceremony, formals, all of reception. 

Can they, or would they like a list of shots that you specifically want?
