  2. What style do I like? Obviously, the question applies to photography, so are you interested in formal images, or something more adventurous in design? Read this.
  3. How much do I want to pay? This is a key question. Some photographers will readily be crossed off the list because they expect more for their services than you can afford. Just remember that it is art and should be treated that way when you consider your price points.
  4. Do our personalities mesh? Meet the potential photographers on your list. Determine whether you like his/her personality. You will have numerous interactions, so be sure you like him/her.
  5. What’s the time frame? Some photographers are exceptionally busy. That means it will be particularly difficult to schedule them for a shoot. Make sure you allot yourself enough time to plan and acquire the photographer you desire.
  6. Can I see your work? You should always view a photographer’s portfolio prior to choosing to employ him/her. You may not like the style, or editing performed. This is a key consideration prior to hiring. Learn more.
  7. Are there partners? Some photographers work together. That means, that you might schedule a shoot and end up with one of the partners, potentially someone you have never met. It’s much like a doctor’s office. So, rather than risk the chance of such a surprise, ask the question before booking a shoot. And, if there are partners, make sure you meet them all to ensure you will be happy with whomever winds up doing your photos.
