People always focus on questions that they should ask a wedding photographer before making a final decision but they never think about some questions that you should never ask. In this article, we will be trying to tell you some of them so that you don’t miss the chance of hiring a professional photographer for your wedding. Let’s go.
Don’t Ask These Questions to a Wedding Photographer
Here are some of the questions that you should avoid asking a wedding photographer.
How Long Have You Been Doing This?
This question has two sides. It might come as a rude and neglecting remark to the wedding photographer. If you are asking this question, it means you haven’t researched properly. It is always advised to see their experience before you start talking to them. For some photographers, this question might come as ‘Do you even know what’re you doing?’. So, it’s better you never ask this question and instead does your research by visiting their website, Instagram page, previous work, etc. You would surely get an answer to this question.
Can I See All Photos of a Wedding That You Covered?
Oh, never ask this. Any wedding photographer would not give you all the wedding photos to check their worth. As we mentioned before, you can check their portfolio to see the quality of their work. They will showcase their best work there. And if you are doing your research right, you will never feel the need to ask this question. Also, it might sound disrespectful to ask this question to a wedding photographer.
Can You Photoshop Someone in Photos?
Of course, they can photoshop. A wedding photographer will enhance your wedding photos to make them better. But it is not ideal to ask if they can photoshop someone to your wedding photos who was not present at the function. Also, if you are asking them for multiple touchups and edits after they have delivered you the photos, you should mention it before. Any professional would be upset if you will ask for multiple re-editing. Before choosing the photographer, you should have a conversation about all of this.
What Type of Equipment do you use?
You need to understand that in the long run, equipment doesn’t matter. If you like a professional’s work, you should not care about how costly or cheap types of equipment they are using. It’s important to have the required skill in wedding photography. And if you think they have that, never ask this question. Plus, you wouldn’t be able to understand any of the equipment types. They can tell you any gibberish that you might believe.
Do We also Have to Provide Food to You?
This is a question that you should never ask a wedding photographer. And we’re sure you would not ask this if you’re in the right frame of mind. Of course, you will provide food to them as they are also a guest at your wedding besides being the wedding photographer. Please don’t ask this question.
