You hear all the time how important hiring the perfect vendors are for your wedding. And it’s true! Doesn’t it make sense to want to enjoy every aspect of this special day?
Besides, photographers/videographers specifically are one of the vendors that you will be spending a lot of time with on the actual day. It certainly helps if you like them! So how do you find one that’s right for you?

Interviewing Potential Wedding Photographers/Videographers In addition, you should always interview your potential wedding photographer. However, interviewing vendors can be a little daunting if you don’t know what to ask. Here are some important questions to ask your potential wedding photographers/videographers.

AVAILABILITY

Is my wedding date available? How far in advance should I book with you?

STYLE

On the wedding day, do you prefer being in the background or be more directive with the shots?

Are most of your photos candid or formal, posed shots?

How much is the required deposit? What do your payment plans look like?

When will we receive the contract?

What is your refund or cancellation policy?
