What is the photographer’s style?
Every photographer has his or her own photographic style and his or her own view of things. Take a look at the portfolio of the photographer of your choice in advance, as this is the only way to find out whether his or her style matches your wishes and ideas.
What kind of pictures do you want?
Would you like a wedding reportage in which the chronological sequence, as well as your emotions and feelings during the wedding ceremony are captured photographically, or do you want classic wedding portraits of just the two of you? Or a combination?
Are you on the same wavelength with your dream photographer?
Arrange a preliminary meeting, ask her/him questions and describe your ideas and wishes on how you would like your wedding to be captured. Because if the chemistry between you and your wedding photographer is not right, it can happen that the pictures appear rather factual instead of becoming the emotional memory that you had imagined.
Offer, price and service!
Ask for a non-binding offer and check whether all points are clearly defined.
In other words, are the costs clearly identifiable or is the offer rather vague, so that in the end you may have to reckon with a completely different price range in order to get everything you had imagined?
In order to avoid any misunderstandings during your enquiry, please specify the exact date (date, time), the location (address) and your rough ideas at this stage, so that you receive an offer that is tailored to this and already contains the relevant data.
Once you have found the photographer of your choice and the offer that suits you best, please have this written down, as this is the only way to clearly define what you have booked and at what price.
