1. What is your photography style?
Every photographer takes photos differently and has their own style. Knowing which photographer you are going to hire is important to meet your preferences.

Ask your photographer if they are familiar with the venue. You should request the photographer to visit the venue before the wedding day to check with lighting and any other necessary needs.
3. How long have you been a wedding photographer?
Knowing the proficiency of your photographer beforehand is crucial for your wedding day to have a lasting impression for generations.
4. Can I view your portfolio?
Request your photographer to share their photo albums to ensure that you are hiring the right photographer.
5. Will you need a shot list or prefer to shoot in your own way?
Some photographers prefer to shoot casually based on their choice and style. However, you can make a list of specific shots to be taken.
6.Do you have an insurance policy?
Your photographer should have insurance to avoid any hassle if anything happens to their equipment.
