When it comes to planning your wedding, one of the most important decisions you'll make is choosing the right photographer to capture all of the special moments of your big day. As a professional photographer, I understand how important it is for couples to have all of their questions answered before making this decision. With that in mind, here are my top 10 recommendations for what couples should ask their potential photographers.

  • The first question couples should ask is about pricing and what they will be getting for their money. This includes understanding the cost of the package, what it includes, and if there are any additional costs such as travel and VAT.

  • Another important question to ask is whether there are any hidden costs that may not be included in the initial quote. This could include things like travel expenses, VAT, or additional hours of coverage.

  • Many couples have specific needs and wants for their wedding photography, so it's important to ask if the photographer is able to customise packages to meet those needs.

  • Another important question to ask is about the deposit and when the outstanding balance is due. This will ensure that you are on the same page with the photographer and that there are no surprises when it comes to paying for the services.

  • It's also important to ask who will be the person actually capturing your special day. Some photographers work with a team and may not be the person behind the camera on your wedding day.

  • Some couples may want to have a second photographer on their wedding day, which is why it's important to ask if this is an option and if there is an additional cost.

  • Another important question to ask is whether the photographer is insured. This is important in case of any accidents or mishaps that may occur during the wedding.

  • It's also important to ask if there is a contract for the services that will be provided. This will ensure that both parties have a clear understanding of the terms and conditions of the agreement.

  • It's important to consider the possibility of the photographer being ill, injured or otherwise unable to make it to your wedding. It's important to ask what the photographer's policy is in case of such an occurrence.

  • Finally, it's important to ask about the photographer's refund or cancellation policy. This will give you peace of mind in case something unexpected happens and you need to cancel the contract.
