There’s little argument that locking down your wedding photographer is a big thing to check off your wedding planning to-do list.

There are so many things to consider and, given the (relative to other wedding expenses) large monetary investment and as this may be one of the first (and only) times you hire the services of a professional photographer, one that you might need a little help with

Not only is it an investment in the quality of the photos (prints, albums etc.) that you will look back on for many years to come but, given that you will spend up to 12 hours with them on your wedding day, choosing the RIGHT ONE FOR YOU will also affect the way your wedding day feels

So I asked friend of Unbridely TV, wedding photographer and high five enthusiast, Alex Szczesniak of Boutique Blinks to help pull together this handy checklist of what to ask your wedding photographer BEFORE YOU BOOK THEM.

As with any wedding planning tool, it is designed to be used with a big helping of intuition, common sense and trusting your gut instincts. There is never a ‘one size fits all’ solution, but it’s a great place to start.

We hope it helps you with some of the less thought of, but still important points, of hiring the perfect wedding photographer for your big day. Good luck!
