Hiring the Perfect Wedding Photographer for Your Wedding
Hiring the perfect wedding photographer is one of the most, and I stress “Most” important parts of planning your wedding.

Do not let this happen to you. When hiring a photographer first look for recommendations. Talk to people who have gotten married or had special events photographed before you start looking on your own. If this doesn’t work, then start your search.
Make sure you give the 3rd degree to the wedding photographers you are trying to hire for your wedding, interview them as if it was the job of their life. Don’t be shy, don’t feel bad and make sure they know exactly what you are looking for.
Ask lots of questions like the ones below.
- How long have you been doing this?
2. Make it fun. Did you start doing events or photographing birds?
3. How many weddings have you done?
4. Can you show me pictures of some of the weddings?
5. Can I contact some of the people you have done work for?
6. Give me their info…Please.
