Finding the Right Photographer: What Questions Should You Ask?

When you are hosting an event, capturing the special moments through images and video is the best way to preserve the memories. You need to be able to trust the photographer you choose to capture the details as well as the highlights so that you have a well-rounded picture of the event. To find the right person for the job, you need to ask a few key questions.

What Packages Are Offered?

Photographers normally offer different packages for each type of event. When you ask about packages, you need to determine what is included in each package in terms of clothing changes and locations, the number of images you will receive, if they are print or digital, and how much it will cost.

How Long Is the Session?

Depending on the event, a session can be 30 minutes ( also known as a “flash” session) or 8 hours (weddings, concerts, family events). It’s important to know how long you will require the photographer to be at the event so they can give you an estimated cost. 

Is There A Deposit?

For longer events, most require a deposit. In some cases, this can be as much as the total price of the shoot. This should be one of the first questions you ask!

If you are hosting an event, don’t overlook the importance of having a great photographer. They will be the ones capturing your memories. Make sure you choose the right one by asking a few important questions before you hire them.
