Wedding Photography FAQ

For most brides and grooms, wedding photography is one of the big three important decisions during wedding planning. These big three normally include wedding venue, wedding photography, and of course the wedding date. Wedding days just fly by so fast, and the wedding images are the only thing that can really help to bring the brides and grooms back to their wedding days and to relive such precious and important memories.

If one looks online, using Google or Facebook, there are hundreds and thousands of wedding photographers available to choose from. Who to choose, what should one look for, red flags to identify? It is a very daunting decision for couples, going through this for the first time.

As a wedding photographer with over 10 years of experience, I have put together this comprehensive Wedding Photography FAQ, a list of topics and questions that can hopefully help to answer most of your questions and concerns on how to choose the most suitable wedding photographer for your day, and to ensure you have the most fun and get the most out of your wedding images.
