Five Questions to Ask Your Wedding Photographer

February 24, 2022

It can be a daunting task to interview wedding photographers. Regardless of if you are hiring the Reflection Studio or another studio, we have created a list of 5 questions to help you find the perfect photographer for your wedding day.

The goal of this list is to help prevent you from hiring the wrong studio, or even worse, “Uncle Joe.”

1. Personality.

Just as important (if not more important) as the technical knowledge and creativity are the wedding photographers’ personal skills.

Not including an engagement shoot, you are going to be spending a full day with your photographer on the most important day of your life.  Choosing a wedding photographer with a personality that matches your own is essential to the overall experience of your wedding.

We capture the precious memories of people who value family and tradition, through a carefully planned timeline and getting to know our clients as friends.

2. What’s your style?

We create adventurous and romantic wedding portraits for couples that want candid shots. Couples that want their raw emotions in each photo by posing them in comfortable natural poses. We’ll allow your love story to unfold before the camera.

3. Do you touch up the images in our image download?

We do retouch every image that is included in your album. The rest of the images will be delivered with our unique signature style of post-production. This involves color correction, exposure adjustment, selective black and white processing, clarity adjustments, tone-mapping, and other corrections.

4. What’s Your Backup System?

Our backup starts inside our cameras, which are all equipped with two memory card slots so the photos are backed up as they’re taken.

Right after the wedding day, our images are backed up onto our computer, which is connected to the cloud, so the images will immediately exist on our cameras, our computers, and in the cloud.

And we keep those backups for years after the wedding day!

5. Can we request a specific set of shots?

You have shots that matter most to you and having a photographer who respects those wants is very important.

While no photographer can, or should, guarantee that a shot will be taken, some will flat-out deny your request. Look for photographers who are willing to work with you, or better yet, who has a shot list they’re willing to share with you.

If you’re looking for a shot list we have one available.  We also send out questionnaires during your engagements to make sure we are on the same page about your expectations AND we encourage you to make a Pinterest page and share it with us.

I hope this answered any lingering questions. If you have more, please write to us at
