We obviously LOVE wedding photos and photographers here at EventCompass...such a personal and momentous moment comes to life with just a click of a button. Great photographers make it seems for effortless. To help you find that great photographer, we have called upon the folks at Project Wedding to give us the six questions you need to ask your photographer before you sign the contract:
1. What is your personal style or do you specialize in a particular style?
You want to know that your photographer and your desires are on the same page. If you want natural, beautiful shots and your photographer specializes in planned, orchestrated shots, you may not be happy with the results. Find out what his or her specialty is and how they plan to take the shots for your wedding.
2. Can I see samples of previous wedding photos you’ve done?
It’s very important to see samples of previous wedding photos from your potential photographer. This way, you can see the quality of the photos and how well the photographer captured the magic of the day. If you don’t like the looks of the sample wedding photos, perhaps you should interview another photographer.

We also recommend discussing where the photographer plans to set up the cameras at the ceremony. Many churches have rules regarding the location of the cameras and photographers to ensure the sanctity of the ceremony itself. Along these lines, it can be distracting to have the photographer up in front with the couple clicking away during the ceremony, so discuss ahead of time where you are comfortable positioning the photographer. Any other words of wisdom? Be sure to hit the comments section!
