Considering style and price select three top choices and schedule a meeting with them. There should be no cost for this. Before you meet with them you should pretty much want to hire them from what you learned about their style and price.
Personality - You want to meet with them to see how they present themselves and if your personalities match. You want someone that is personable and nice so that they will get along well with you, your family, and friends. Never make decision at meeting always go home and think about it and wait until you have met with all three. The best in business will let their work, pricing, and personality do all talking. The meeting should be a casual conversation to get to know each other and discuss your wedding day in general. There is no need to go into great detail now. Some photographer will try to “sell” you their services; never get sold on something. Remember you already decided you like work and price before you got there so what are they trying to sell? Just meet with them to get to know them.
Once you make your decision contact photographer and let them know. Also, be sure to contact other two and thank them for their time but you have decided to use another photographer. They should be considerate and not try to continue selling you their services; if they do you made a good choice to go with other photographer. With photographer you chose go over details on phone and have them right up a wedding contract for you to review and sign. Do not pay a deposit until you have read and signed contract (the photographer should sign contract also). Read contract thoroughly; everything you are supposed to receive should be written down and have price and payment schedule. Always make note of their cancellation policy.
Congratulations you found a photographer and have one scheduled. You should now schedule to meet with them about a month before your wedding date to go over details again.
Have a great wedding day!
