So often we see articles stating which questions a bride should ask before instructing a wedding photographer. We understand they’re meant to help, but most of them omit truly revealing components to what wedding photographers aspire to achieve. For example, here are a few questions we frequently get asked:

Is it okay for other people to take photos while you’re taking photos? What do you wear to a wedding?
Do you have my wedding date available?

While important, these questions will likely yield the same answer if a bride interviews three prospective photographers, or 30.

If you’re meeting with a wedding photographer, your main objective is get to know them. You’ll be spending the majority of your wedding day together. For us at Carro it’s important for you to know that you can let go and trust us with your special day.

If you’re a bride looking for a list of questions to ask your wedding, we suggest adding these in too:

What’s Your Most Favourite Memory at a Wedding?
