Questions to Ask Your Photographer

When interviewing a potential photographer, there are certain questions you want to make sure you ask. First, what is the price and what does that include? In the next section of this newsletter we will outline the different services and packages that most wedding photographers have. 

The Knot has a great list of Questions to Ask Photographers Before You Book. One of the questions we particularly love is if the photographer has shot at your venue before. Some venues even have a preferred or recommended photographer. When a photographer is familiar with the venue and its staff, it can make the day go a little smoother. Most photographers will at least become familiar with the venue prior to the big day if they're not already.

Wedding Photographer Services

Did you know that some photographers include a complimentary engagement session when you book them? Others offer a bridal portraits session! There are so many different services photographers choose to offer. From custom photo books to a few prints, some photographers choose add-ons. 

The other service to consider is TIME. While one photographer allows for the entire day of shooting, another photographer might only offer up to an hour before the ceremony. This would be a great way to cut costs! Do your research by visiting the photographer's website. Most photographers post their Frequently Asked Questions or information about the investment you're making. And don't be afraid to ask even more about the services they offer!

Photographer Eleise Theuer offers a price PDF where couples can choose a basic package and then choose a la cart items to truly cater to your needs.
