Questions to ask a wedding photographer

Sep 10th 2015 at 12:12 AM

With a wedding on cards, planning and organizing skills take the front seat. You multitask like there is no tomorrow and still end up leaving a lot of things for tomorrow. After all, there is so much to be done. However, hiring a good guy to do the job is not easy simply because you have so many options to choose from when it comes to Wedding Photographers Gloucestershire. The whole process starts with getting referrals from friend and family, interviewing candidates and preparing a shortlist. Now, all the shortlisted candidates are good but you are not going to hire all of them. Always remember short listing names for Wedding Photography Gloucestershire is not the end of the job. You have simplified the task but you will still need to put in a lot of effort to make the final choice.

Here is a list of questions that you should ask to all the shortlisted candidates. Answers to these questions will help you finalize your choice easily:

Is the date available?

When you talk to prospective Wedding Photographers Gloucestershire candidates for your wedding, the first question to ask them is that are they available on your wedding day. If the answer to this question is in negation, asking the remaining questions will not make any sense. Since the person is not available on your wedding day, feel free to chalk him or her, off the list.

What is the advance booking period?

Some artists listed in the category of Wedding Photography Gloucestershire insist on an advance booking period of three to six months. However, others are willing to accommodate your request even at a short notice of one month. If the photographer is really skilled, booking so much in advance will make sense as well. Ideally, ask your shortlisted candidate, how much in advance will you need to confirm the booking.

What is the experience?

Usually photographers are shortlisted on the basis of referrals. However, when you are interviewing the shortlisted candidates, be frank to ask about the experience that they have. In fact, you can ask them to show their portfolio. Always remember that a good artist will love to show off his or her work.

Have you shot a similar wedding?

Apart from the experience, you need to ask the photographer, whether or not, they have shot a wedding that is similar in size and style to what you are planning. Though this is not such an important factor, if you come across a photographer who has such specialized experience, hiring them is always a good choice.

What is your working style?

With the answer to this question, you are actually trying to understand how the photographer will work on your wedding day. Will he or she blend into the existing environment or create a more artificial environment by insisting on choreographing the shots.

These are simple questions but answers to them can guide you in a big way when it comes to choosing a good photographer for your wedding day.
