What style do you prefer?

How many weddings have you shot?

This question will help you determine if the photographer has experience in wedding photography because many people are event photographers so they are not specialised in this niche. Choose someone who has at least 5 years of experience in the industry and check their portfolio to find out if they have shot a wedding similar to yours.

How many events do you have that week?

Make sure they don’t book more events they can attend during the same period because they can miss some important parts of the event.

You want them to focus on the most important moments and to help you create memories.             

What happens if you get ill?

Can I decide the post-production style?
