It's good to talk
It’s always worth having a chat with your photographer before you’re thinking of booking them. You’ll soon get a gauge of how experienced you think they are.
Ask how long they have been in business for. How many events have they covered? Which venues have they worked with? Is it their full time job or is it just a part time hobby that pays?
As professional photographers, we often hear of horror stories. Such as when clients have been let down by inexperienced photographers or hobbyists. People who have have talked themselves into a job, which is way above their experience level.
We’re bound to say it, and you might say we’re biased, but we believe that experience really does pay, especially if your event is a one off. There is no scope for re-takes!
