Brides usually invest so much time and effort into planning their wedding and they want every special moment to be captured. But how do you know which photographer is right for you? It’s time to do your homework!

Under no circumstances do not hire the first wedding photographer you come across, but take some time to review various photographers’ portfolios and feel free to ask questions that will give you the insights into their work.

Here’s 15 question that you should ask a potential wedding photographer and avoid a catastrophe in your wedding album:

1. What kind of photography do you usually do – can I see your portfolio, albums from weddings you did?

2. Are you experienced in photographing weddings?

3. What packages do you offer?

4. Have you ever shot at our wedding venue?
