Meeting the Photographer

Tonight, Brian and I had plans to meet with a potential photographer.  Before heading out, we enjoyed a quick meal of Caesar Salad topped with salmon.  Seriously one of my favorite meals.

We met her at a Starbucks, and I have been verrrry snacky today (I had several handfuls of raisins after dinner…) so of course I wanted to try the new salted carmel mocha light frappucino…that’s right LIGHT!  I love when the new flavors come in the light version.  Sweet and salty has always been one of my favorite flavor combos so this drink was right up my alley.  Brian, however, didn’t think that it was his cup of…frappucino 😦

Before meeting with the photographer, Brian and I thought that we should probably do a little research about what questions to ask when meeting with a potential wedding photographer for the first time…so we both did a little Google search to see what we could come up with.  TheKnot.com was a great resource as usual!

Here are the questions that we decided were important to us:

  1. What is your backup plan in case of an emergency such as a broken camera, family emergency, etc.?
  2. Do you have a second photographer?
  3. Can we have all of the photos above and beyond the minimum amount?
  4. What do you mean when you say you have a “photojournalist” style?
Another good tip was to look for a good mixture of portraits, candids, details, and scenic photos within the photographer’s portfolio.  And the last tip was to check out how well the photographer’s personality meshes with your own, because they are going to be spending a lot of time with you on one of the most important days of your lives, and they are going to be getting a little bit up close and personal.
The great part about our meeting was that she answered literally all of our questions before we even had to ask them!  I think we may have found a match…but we don’t want to jump the gun so we still have a little discussing to do.
I am headed to an early morning Body Pump session tomorrow, so I am out for the night!  Sleep tight!

 

Does anyone have a good site for wedding photography inspiration??
