Wedding Photographer Questions

Not sure what questions to ask your potential wedding photographer?

Be sure to do your research ahead of time, so you’re not disappointed when you get your photos back and it’s too late.

You only get once chance to do it right. You don’t want to skip this step.

Questions to ask engagement photographer

Most of these questions should be asked over the phone or via email before you set up an in person or virtual interview.

That way you’re not wasting anybody’s time if the wedding photographer can’t deliver what you’re looking for.

Don’t be afraid or embarrassed to ask any of these questions.

Wedding photography is a big investment and you should not go into a legal binding contract without knowing all the facts.

If the wedding photographer is professional, they will have no problems answering these questions (and have likely been asked dozens of times before). 

Authentic Bride Guide Tip: If the wedding photographer you are interviewing will not answer any question you ask, gives a vague answer or will not put something in the contract, then politely decline and move on.
