Let’s talk about questions to ask your wedding photographer! Choosing the perfect photographer for your wedding day is a big deal. These photos are ones that you’ll be looking back on for years to come. They are photos that you’ll be showing your grandkids and passing down for generations. Finding someone who can capture those memories in a meaningful way that translates through to your unique love story is so incredibly crucial. And with all of the photographers out there, it can become a very overwhelming decision. You may not know what to look for, what questions to ask and what to avoid.
So, today, in this blog post, I wanted to share with you five questions to ask your wedding photographer before hiring them. Keep on reading for that list of questions!
01. HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER?
Although we all start somewhere, it is so important to have an experienced wedding photographer. If your photographer is not experienced, you are running the risk of things not going the right way and possible disaster.
02. WHAT WOULD IT BE LIKE WORKING TOGETHER ON OUR WEDDING DAY?
It’s important to talk to your potential wedding photographer about what they have planned for general wedding timelines and what to expect. They may do things in ways you don’t like or ways that you love. You won’t know until you ask and it’s a great way to see where their head is at.
03. WHAT DO YOUR WEDDING PACKAGES INCLUDE?
It is very important for you to figure out your needs and to see if their packages can fulfill them. This also goes along with budgets. Seeing their wedding packages is a good way to see if their work fits your budget.
04. WHAT IS YOUR TURNAROUND TIME?
An average wedding photographer’s turnaround time is 6-8 weeks. If they provide it sooner then that is great but more often than not, photographers have multiple weddings to attend and edit so this can be something to expect. If the turnaround time is longer than you had hoped, ask yourself if the wait is something you’re okay with
05. What’s the Backup Plan?
Whether it’s due to rain or someone getting sick, make sure they have a backup plan in place for you to avoid any hiccups!

She is very knowledgeable in how to look your best in the photos while still feeling natural. I’ve recommended Savannah to multiple people and they all have been extremely happy with their experience. And her prices are amazing!!”
