Experience & Samples
Aside from samples from people you know, you can ask photographer himself about samples. You can call photographers on your list and do an interview over phone or make an appointment to meet in person. This is your chance to ask photographer any questions you may have such as their experience, what training they have and what different types of photography they have studied. If you are doing an in-person interview, photographer can show you portfolios of samples of their work. If doing a phone interview, that ends well, you may want to go in person and see a portfolio.
Schedule and Appointment
When you have chose photographer you think you want to use, you will have to schedule several appointments. The bride and groom, brideís parents and anyone else who may be taking part in paying for wedding should be present at these meetings regarding wedding photography.
At these meetings, you will discuss price, payment schedule and possible deposits. Next you will discuss plan for taking photos. Many people also get video and digital photographs now. Do you want these? Will your photographer be able to provide these? Will there be extra fees?
Many people have specific plans as to what they want pictures of (e.g. bride and father coming down aisle, bride and groom, rings exchanging, kiss, bridesmaids, etc.) This is your chance to get all this written down so that photographer is sure to get all shots you want. Other people give their photographers a little more freedom to decide what pictures will be good to take.
Be sure to ask any questions you have about this important event. Your wedding photography is important to you so donít hesitate to be clear about what you want.
