What Questions Should I Ask a Wedding Photographer?

So often I see articles in bridal magazines or on wedding planning websites instructing what questions a bride should ask before hiring a wedding photographer. I understand they're meant to help, but most of them omit truly revealing components to what wedding photographers aspire to achieve. For example, here are a few questions I came across in a recent article regarding Meeting with Your Wedding Photographer…
    Is it okay for other people to take photos while you're taking photos?
    What do you wear to a wedding?
    Do you have my wedding date available?

While important, these questions will likely yield the same answer if a bride interviews three prospective photographers, or 30. If you're meeting with a wedding photographer, your main objective is get to know her. You'll be spending the majority of your wedding day together, so knowing what gear she shoots with is important, but it's not as important as knowing if your photographer is awkward, if you can let go + trust your photographer, and if you share a similar sense of humor.

If you're a bride looking for a list of questions to ask your wedding photographer, I propose a few more to add to ensure you love the artist just as much as you love her portfolio…
    How Do You Spend Your Free Time?
    What's Your Most Favorite Memory at a Wedding?
    What's the Worst Thing That's Happened to You on a Wedding Day?
    What Are You Most Proud Of?
    Why Did You Become a Wedding Photographer?

These questions yield wildly different answers and yet they offer clear insight into the soul of the person documenting your wedding day. I started as an Orange County Wedding Photographer, but the business has since grown into many areas, with each experience changing my perspective. I'd love to share what makes me unique–as would most photographers–so if you're a bride looking for the best photographer for your wedding day, the best way is to ask questions that reveal the vision inside the visionary.

I wouldn’t say we were business nerds but my husband just sent me a Slack message asking me to call him.
