Your initial consultation will tell you a lot about a certain individual so treat it like an interview. Write down a list of question you may have before the meeting. The answers the photographer provides should make you feel confident in his or her ability to control this important part of your day. The person should understand what you expect from your photos.
Check the credentials and references of each photographer so you know you are dealing with someone who is qualified. Ask about previous experiences, what expenses you should be budgeting for, and general information about the process. For instance, some photographers will have props, while others might require you to supply props yourself.

Every photographer possesses a particular style, which means you need to look through a variety of portfolios before making a choice. If there is a specific photographer you like because of work you have seen from another wedding, you might want to request more samples. In addition, you should ask if there will be an assistant photographer on hand if something goes wrong.
You will notice that a portfolio is a truer reflection of the capabilities of the photographer. If you find the photography to be of poor quality you need to steer clear. If you think you might be happy with a certain photographer ask the individual how they intend to make your photos unique.

Many photographers offer packages, which considerably cuts down on your wedding photography expenses. Some will also include videographer services. Think about your options before making your final decision. In the end you need a qualified individual who will make you feel comfortable and provide beautiful photos that capture the little moments.
