The next step is to schedule a meeting with your potential photographer after determining that they are available for your event. Professional wedding photographers are typically busy during wedding seasons, and we advise booking one early in your wedding planning process.
This gives you more time to build a relationship with them and try them out with other wedding-related events such as the engagement session. Meeting them also gives you a platform to discuss your budget, preferences, videography, timelines and ask questions or highlight concerns that you may have.
Beyond discussing your wedding, you may also want to consider choosing someone whose personality is almost similar to yours. That way, you will feel more at ease with them, and it will be easier to communicate your thoughts and share creative ideas with them.
Although it is impossible to know everything you need to know at the first meeting, here are some key questions you might consider asking them. You will want to know their process and techniques and if their style will complement your wedding theme.
Have they done a photo shoot at any of your considered venues and do they come with a personal assistant to cover different aspects of the wedding? It is also necessary to know when they will deliver the finished pictures and if they are available for other pre-wedding events.
Communication with your service providers is a critical aspect when planning your dream wedding. Therefore, you will want an experienced professional to keep you updated at every step. At Eivan’s we provide event coordinators who make sure everything stays on track so you can relax and enjoy every moment of your wedding day.
Additionally, we help you create a wedding shot list of your preferred photos, such as the first kiss or pictures of the venue and decorations before the guests arrive.
