As you begin your Wedding Planning you have realized that there are so many photographers out there.  How can you tell which one is right for you? No doubt, you’ve heard horror stories from family and friends about how their photographer didn’t do what they were contracted to do.  That’s every Bride’s nightmare, right?

Learn from me on this!

I hired someone to photograph my wedding back when film was the only way to shoot and digital photography was just in it’s infancy. Wait, don’t go anywhere!  This still applies to you!  Now that I’m a Wedding Photographer I know exactly what I should’ve asked so that I got exactly what I wanted on and after my Wedding Day.

Loudoun County Wedding PhotographerYou don’t have to make the decision about who to hire without knowing what to ask.  Please know you’re not alone! I don’t want anyone to be taken advantage of by simply not being equipped.  When I hired my wedding photographer, I thought I had hired the right person.  Their photos looked great! What else do I want from a photographer?  Aren’t they just going to take photos? If that’s what you think too, then please read my list of questions to ask!

I didn’t even realize that I had hired the wrong person for the job until I received my photos.  And by that time it had been at least a month since my wedding.  But the first inkling that I had hired the wrong person was on my wedding day.  I was completely stressed out and now that I’m a wedding photographer I watch for these things and protect my couples from feeling this stress.  In my mind, there’s no reason for my couples to feel anything but complete joy on their wedding day.  They shouldn’t be worrying about whether their photographer is doing their job.

You might think so, but the questions that I have compiled apply just as much to today’s most savvy digital photographer.  There’s so much more to being a Wedding Photographer then just what medium they shoot on.  At the end of the day, the camera is just the tool that the photographer uses to do the job.  There’s so much more to being a Professional Wedding Photographer.  So how will you know how to spot the professional?  My list of 10 questions will equip you to spot the true professional out of the crowd.

Please don’t make the same mistake I did! There are so many people that have picked up a camera in this digital age and think they can use your event to make money.  But this is nothing new.  This happened back in the film days too.  Engaged couples should be as informed as possible about what it takes to get the best images from your Wedding Photographer.  And I have just the right questions to ask any prospective wedding photographer so you can feel protected.  I can’t imagine hiring a Wedding Photographer now and not ask them these questions.  My years of experience have prepared me for what can go wrong on a wedding day.  I have learned from others mistakes as well.  There’s always a married couple that has a terrible story about the experience they had with their Wedding Photographer.  Read this list of questions so you will only have amazing things to say about yours!
