Figuring out the logistics that this wedding photographer has in place will turn out to have you feel a little but more at ease of what is about to go down during your wedding photography coverage. You need to know for sure that your wedding photographer has everything covered on his end before you move on to the rest of the other things that you need to go ahead and focus on during the wedding. Although it is true that trust is a basic element that you need to have when you are trying to establish a great working relationship with the wedding photographer of your choice, you first need to determine if this wedding photographer is someone that you can trust in the first place. This should turn out to be the first hurdle for you to have to go through with and accomplish before you move forward with the rest of all of the other things that you need to check out after all has been said and done.
Ask about the backup equipment of your wedding photographer.
A lot of things can go wrong during a wedding, particularly when it has something to do with the equipment of the professional photographer that you hired for the event. A guest accidentally spilling wine on the camera is not at all a farfetched possibility and this is the main reason why you really need to gather your wits around you when you are booking a professional wedding photographer to entrust your coverage to after all has been said and done. You need to know that he has something else in the background that will take the place of his main or his primary equipment in the event that something happens somewhere along the way. This will help you put your mind at ease knowing that the show will always go on and knowing that your photography coverage is not in jeopardy the entire time that your photographer is there. Other issues such as camera malfunctions or issues with the memory card and so on and so forth are quite the possibility as well and this is the type of thing that you need to look into one way or the other.
Ask about your professional wedding photographer’s stand on other shooters during the wedding.
There should be other shooters involved. A wedding photographer will not be able to efficiently cover everything on his own no matter how hard he may try or no matter how skilled he may turn out to be in professional photography. Weddings are just way too complicated to have to shoot alone and every wedding photographer in his right mind will never book a wedding all alone unless it is for a particularly small guest count.
Ask about ingress and egress.
You need to know what time your wedding photographer is planning to set up and what time he is exiting from the wedding event. This way, you are well aware of the extent of his coverage and what you should be expecting from the shots at the end of the day.
