These things may be helpful to have with you when first meeting with your photographer
What to take with you when meeting your wedding photographer
- Your partner! It’s important that everyone will ‘click’ so make sure it’s a joint decision. Your photographer also needs to know that s/he will be comfortable working with both of you!
- Your plan for the day (no matter how sketchy at this stage).
- Any pictures you’ve clipped from magazines, a flash-drive with internet favourites, or a link to your Pinterest page. These give your photographer a really good insight into the style of photography you prefer.
- A list of any particular shots you want, especially family groupings. While this family list isn’t really necessary until about a month out from your wedding, if you’ve thought through the combinations already, it will assist with the scheduling for your wedding day.
- Consideration of any other services you may wish to ask about or see samples of, such as Bridal Boudoir, montage prints, audio-visuals, wedding guest books or Drown-The-Gown.
- A list of questions you want to ask your photographer. (See my article on Interviewing Your Photographer.) Don't be afraid to 'interview' them. After all, you're contracting them for a very important job.
