WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER IN GREECE
Over the years, I've been asked many questions by couples looking for a wedding photographer. I believe that no question is a silly one, and it's essential for both parties to have open communication to ensure a successful collaboration. Here are the "top 12 best questions to ask a wedding photographer" that I get asked frequently.
While these questions are crucial, keep in mind that every photographer is different and may be at a different stage in their career. So, it's important to find a photographer whose style and personality align with your vision for your wedding day. How a photographer answers these questions is just as important as the answers themselves. Honesty and transparency are key to building trust and a strong working relationship.
Without further ado, here are the best questions to ask a wedding photographer, along with my own answers to them.
