Must Ask Questions for your Wedding Photographer
Every year when I am meeting with clients, it never fails that some bring in a question list from a wedding site or spiral notebook that has, “must ask questions for your wedding photographer.” If you didn’t already know, a great way to get noticed online is to write content to show up on search engines. Although, I’m sure some of these questions couples are wondering, just know which are important to you and the answer you are looking for. Because if you ask the question, “what equipment do you shoot with,” you should probably know what these answers mean. 😊
FE 24-70mm F2.8 GM
Lens FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM OSS
FE 50mm F1.8
Lens FE 85mm F1.8
Vario-Tessar T* FE 16-35mm F4 ZA OSS
FE 90mm F2.8 Macro G OSS
Canon 5d mark IV
Godox AD200’s and 860
Did you understand all of that? Was that an acceptable answer? Lol Honestly, that isn’t even counting my light modifiers, my light stands, the holster equipment I use or the editing and storage management software I have. Nevertheless, there are sites that do ask great questions that are important to ask. So here are a few from Brides.com and here are my answers:
Brides.com – Interview Questions for your wedding photographer
First question, “Will you be the one shooting my wedding? If not, can I meet the photographer who will be on-site?”
A: Yes so I am the one that will be photographing your wedding unless you specifically hire my 1 and only associate, Jamie. Either way, you will know who your lead photographer is and absolutely you can meet either of us before the wedding date.
Next, “Will you have any assistants with you on your wedding day?”
A: Yes, most weddings I have an assistant that does not photograph but helps with tasks.
Background question, “How long have you been shooting weddings? How many weddings have you photographed?”
A: Going on 16 years for Katie and same for Jamie. As for how many weddings, I have honestly lost count but it’s over 300.
Portfolio question, “Can we see the full galleries of a few of your recent weddings?”
A: Absolutely, there are several links on my website that go to full galleries but am happy to send several more especially ones of your venue or vibe.
All great questions and there are more from brides.com that I will explore in another blog post. Did this answer some of your most important wedding photographer questions? What other must ask questions for wedding photographers do you have? Let me know!
