Every wedding is never complete without photos. After the event, the photos will be the only reminders of the good times you had with your family and friends. Isn't it great to go down on memory lane with photographs to look at?
Let us now discuss the things you need to know when hiring the perfect Westchester NY wedding photographer:
Do you know the Factors to Consider?
One of the most important thing you should do is to know the personality of the photographer you are planning to hire. Will he/she manage to supply the photographs on time?
The next thing you need to ask him/her is how long has he/she been in the industry? Does he/she often take wedding photos? Request for some samples of his/her work and referrals as well.
Questions to ask Your Chosen Photographer
1.What are the packages you offer? Are they worth it? Exactly what do I get (i.e. albums)? Do you encouraged modifications and if yes, how much will it cost? The majority of the packages are fixed but there is no harm in trying to ask Westchester NY photographers about this stuff.
2.What about the deals with reprints and additional albums? Will I get to keep the negatives or digital high resolution files? The reason why you are asking this set of questions is because most guests, family members and friends would ask for a copy of pictures taken from your wedding. So instead of taking a trip to your photographer's studio, you can simply have them reprinted by yourself.
3.How many days will it take for you to give the photos, albums, thank you cards, etc.?
4.What is going to happen if I suddenly decide to terminate the deal, do I get a refund?
5.How many hours are you going to stay to take photos? What time are you going to arrive and leave?
Before I end this article, allow me to first discuss one more topic which is also important – the contact. Always make sure that you have read and understood every term and condition stipulated in the contract before signing it. The contract should have the conditions you agreed upon. It should also have the complete name of the Westchester NY photographer, the description and price of the package you wanted, additional charges (taxes, travel, etc.) and the deposit amount and date it was submitted. Your name (client's name), address and phone number should also be there. You might also want to include there a statement about what happens if the photographer does not show up.
