- How long will I have you commissioned for and is there a fee to stay longer? This is something that not every wedding photographer will make clear on their website so be sure what you are paying for. Is it all day coverage? Hourly? Half day coverage with additional hourly fees?
- How long have you been in business and how many weddings have you photographed?
- Do you require a deposit? If so, how much?
- What is your cancellation policy?
- How would you describe your working style? Are you someone who blends in with the crowd and documents what unfolds naturally or do you create more of a visible presence by taking charge and choreographing the shots?
- Can others take photos while you are taking photos? A lot of photographers will not allow this as it can be distracting, causing people to look away from the photographer having him/her have to retake the shot. It can interrupt the timeline causing the photographer to get behind schedule.
- When will you arrive and how long will you stay?
- What happens in the event you are ill?
- What equipment do you use and do you bring backup?
- Do you have liability insurance? You want to be sure your photographer has liability insurance to cover the cost if something terrible goes wrong.
- What’s your procedure with backing up my photos after the event? You want to be sure your photographer will securely backup your images on multiple hard drive systems in case one should fail.
- What will you and your assistant be wearing?
- Are there any charges not mentioned? (i.e. travel)
- What’s your cancellation policy?
- May I have a list of references? Your photographer should not hesitate to provide this information. If he/she does, consider this a red flag.
Moving on through my “best wedding photos of 2011″ is one of my favorite moments to document…the couple’s first kiss! Enjoy this juicy favorite of mine. :)

I always encourage my wedding couples to see each other prior to the ceremony for several reasons. First, it releases so much tension building up between the bride and groom therefore allowing them to more thoroughly enjoy and relax during the ceremony. Secondly, it frees up so much more time for bridal portraits, wedding party portraits and family portraits avoiding having to quickly squeeze in these important shots in between the ceremony and reception. Lastly, my second shooter and I are the only ones present to watch and document this special time. We make sure that this moment is kept private/intimate by guiding everyone else to leave the ‘first look’ area, removing any distraction/interruption. Each of my wedding clients have thanked me later for making this happen.
