3. Pop the Question about Equipment
Don’t be shy—ask about the gear. A photographer with top-notch equipment is your ticket to vibrant, high-resolution memories.
5. Lay it All Out
If you’ve come across negative reviews, don’t hesitate to discuss them with the photographer. A candid conversation can clear the air and address any concerns.
5. Share Your Vision Openly
Communication is key! Don’t hold back your vision, your theme, or those quirky ideas. A great photographer will get your vibe and run with it.

6. Chase the Sunlight (or Moonlight) with Them
If natural lighting is your jam, make sure your photographer is a wizard at harnessing the sun’s golden hour or the moon’s glow.
7. Unveil the Editing Magic
Ask about their editing style. Are they into dreamy pastels, high-contrast drama, or the au naturel look? Find a match that makes your heart sing. We have a photo style worksheet that you can fill out to better understand what style you are looking for, and help us pair you with the perfect photographer.
8. Reality Check: Ask to See Full Albums
Don’t settle for a highlight reel. Request full wedding albums to see their consistency and storytelling skills from start to finish. Our FULL albums live right here!
9. Engage in a Trial Run with an Engagement Session
If possible, opt for an engagement shoot. It’s like a test drive before the big day—helps you vibe with the photographer and get comfy in front of the lens.
10. Talk Numbers, Money, and the Nitty-Gritty
Lay it all out. Discuss pricing, packages, and additional costs, and ensure no hidden surprises. Let’s keep it crystal clear and budget-friendly.
Remember, your wedding photographer is not just a photographer. They’re an artist who will craft your memories. So, pick someone whose vibe aligns with yours and let the photography adventure begin!
