The key to finding wedding vendors you love? Interviewing them before you sign the contract. This is especially true with a photographer. You’ll be spending almost the entire day with the photographer you choose, so in addition to loving their style, having an in-person or phone interview is a great way to make sure you’ll be happy to have them around.

Not sure where to start when it comes to interviewing your wedding photographer of choice? We’ve rounded up a list of questions to ask your photographer that will help you narrow down your options when it comes to everything you need to know.

Availability

  • Is my wedding date available?
  • Will you be the one shooting my wedding? If not, can I meet the photographer who will be on-site?
  • How many other weddings will you photograph that weekend?
  • Will you have any assistants with you on our wedding day?

 

Some photographers always work with an assistant, while others determine if they need one based on the size of your event. If they do not always work with an assistant, adding an assistant or second photographer to your contract will most likely incur an additional fee.

 

Background Check

  • How long have you been shooting weddings? How many weddings have you photographed?
  • Do you often shoot weddings that have a similar size and style to the one we are planning?
  • Can we see the full galleries of a few of your recent weddings?
  • Have you ever shot a wedding at our ceremony and reception venues? If not, do you plan to check the venues out in advance?
  • Have you ever worked with our planner? Videographer? Florist? DJ?
