by Jamaal Mckenzie Engagements | Weddings | Portraits | Editorial

Weddings are precious times in everyone's life. Therefore, it is mandatory to hire a wedding photographer to save the moments of the special day. Although wedding photography can be exciting, it is full of challenges.

Being a part of your memorable day, these professionals will be providing you the best photo album to cherish for a lifetime. This is why people consider hiring a wedding photographer in Washington DC as they provide the most pleasing photos with tools and experience in the field. 

The key to choose the right photographer is by interviewing them. This article serves as a guide helping one to interrogate the photographer with the questions, helping them narrow down their options.


Large photo studios usually have more than one photographer on staff. Ensuring that you interview and connect with the photographer that will be present on your wedding day would be beneficial. You can ask questions related to the availability of the photographer, such as 

  • If the photographer is available on the wedding date,

  • Who is the photographer who will be on-site on the day of the wedding,

  • How many additional weddings will he/she shoot that weekend,

  • Will the photographer have any assistants with him/her on the wedding day?


In terms of expertise, it is a more suitable option to browse for a few wedding photographers in your area who have rates posted publicly on their websites. A professional photographer has skills and experience in his field, who can manage to adjust to any location and capture exceptional pictures in any scenario.

  • Since how long has the photographer been shooting weddings, and how many weddings has he/she photographed?

  • Does the photographer often shoot weddings with a similar size and style to the one you are planning?

  • Request the photographer to show the portfolio of his recent works.

  • Has the photographer ever shot a wedding at your ceremony venues? If not, does he/she plan to check the venues out in advance?

  • Has the photographer ever worked with your planner, videographer, or other vendors such as the florist or DJ?

Pricing and Packages

Knowing the pricing and being aware of the packages provided by the photographers before hiring a photographer helps manage one's budget. 

  • What is included in their standard package, and what add-ons do the more expensive packages include?

  • Ask if you are allowed to customize a package to fit your needs?

  • Does the photographer include engagement photos in your packages? 

The preparations for the wedding include time-sensitive decisions and investments to make, from choosing the perfect location to selecting your wedding day team. However, one of the most critical choices to make in wedding preparation is choosing a suitable photographer. Consider these points to make the right choice of photographer.
