What to ask your photographer before booking
We spoke to photographer Charlotte Mail and asked her one of your burning questions.
Q – Our wedding has been postponed due to COVID-19, and we need to book a new photographer. What do you suggest we ask before booking?
"We’ve all had to adapt and be more flexible after so many postponements. If you have no choice but to move your wedding date, most photographers should be happy to reschedule, providing they’re available. Here are a few key questions to ask:
"What is your policy if we’re required to postpone our wedding due to the pandemic?
"Will there be any changes in price if we are postponing to the following year?
"What is your policy regarding deposits in the event that you’re not available on the date we would like to postpone to?
"It’s also important to check what the photographer’s backup plan is if they were to fall ill on your wedding day. Like myself, most suppliers will have a network of fellow photographers that they can contact if they’re unable to shoot your wedding.
"When you’re ready to book, your photographer should send you a contract to complete. Always read the content carefully before signing, and don’t worry about asking any questions if you are uncertain about what the terms mean."
