Questions to Ask Your Wedding Photographer from a Wedding Photographer in South Wales
We've talked about the important things when choosing the perfect photographer for your special day. And if you've narrowed it down to one or two contenders, then the next step you should take would be to meet with each photographer in person (if possible) and go over the essential questions listed below. The answer they will give will hopefully help you to make the big decision, and after the meeting, talk with your partner to see if you both feel a connection with the photographer.
First of all- is my wedding date available? (this is an essential question, and if the photographer says no and you're not willing to change your wedding date, than there is no need to ask any other question)
1.How would you define your style?
Typically during the development of your wedding, I will shoot in a different number of styles including photojournalism, Truthful, usually with a long lens, old-school but relaxed and some more contemporary styled images to give you the supreme choice and variety for your wedding photo book.We’ll plan in any formal couple and group photos you may require.
2. Who will take my photographs?
I personally shoot all the weddings myself alongside with my lovely wife as the Second Photographer/ assistant so we're able to cover other angles that I alone wouldn't be able to.
3. Will it cost us more if you have an assistant on the day?
No, it won't.
4. My wedding is not in the UK, is that a problem?
Not at all. We usually do weddings throughout Wales and England, but for “Destination Weddings”, we ask for a small travel or accommodation supplement to just cover our expenses at cost. We are originally from Portugal so we're used to working in very warm and sunny conditions, therefore we wouldn’t have a problem photographing a Wedding in any location.
5. Do you have a portfolio of recent weddings you've shot?
Yes, you can see it in our Website.
6. What packages do you offer?
We offer a variety of packages, the wedding packages have been designed to offer a variety of times coverage, photo books, and prices, hopefully, they cater for all your needs. Tailoring one of the existing packages to increase prints, the number of pages in the photo book, or change photo book style wouldn’t be an issue and is something we could discuss at any time from booking.
7. What do you think distinguishes your work from other wedding photographers?
Well, personally I think what distinguishes me from any other photographer in South Wales is the fact that I have a lot of experience not only in the UK but also abroad.
You're wedding is one of the most special day of your entire life and the moments from that day should be preserved in the most beautiful manner. And that is exactly the reason why you need me, to capture those precious golden moments.
I am not only a wedding photographer who can capture the perfect frame, but also a master of turning captured frames into masterpieces.
8. How will you (and your assistant) be dressed?
Me and my assistant always dress to look professional and fit in with the style of your event.
9. Have you ever worked at my wedding venue before? If not, do you plan to check it out in advance?
Yes, we always familiarize ourselves with the location ahead of time to be prepared for any lighting issues and know how best to incorporate the venue's architectural elements into the pictures.
10. Do you have liability insurance?
Yes, we're fully insured, liability and equipment.
And remember, before making the big decision make sure you like the photographer's work and communication style, and if he has listened well and addressed all your concerns. But most importantly, make sure you and your partner feel a connection with this photographer as well as his/her photos
