Unlike looking for your perfect venue or dress, which you can see and experience in the moment…the photography is something very different. You need to be able to trust your photographer to produce the kind of imagery you desire at a future date!
This is no small task. It requires asking for photographer referrals from family and friends; then looking at their websites, interviewing them in person, taking good notes and having a list of questions ready for them. Don’t be afraid to speak your mind and let them know exactly what you envision for your wedding photography.
San Francisco wedding photographer, Joseph Kohn, has a great article on his website about these specific questions to ask each photographer you interview.
