Ten Tips for choosing your Seattle Wedding photographer by Natalie Fobes

With the Seattle wedding booking season in full swing couples are meeting with photographers. This is a great time to get to know the photographer better. After all, with the exception of the fiance, you’ll spend more time with her/him than anyone else on your wedding day.

During this meeting don’t concentrate on pricing and hours. Excellent photography is much more than that!

Here are a couple questions to ask. My answers are in parenthesis.

1. What is your experience in photography and how does that help you in shooting weddings? (I am a former National Geographic photographer so you know I can capture the candid moments of your wedding day while also telling a story. What most people don’t know is that I used to shoot fashion too. So I love making creative portraits of the couple to hang on their wall as art, not just wedding photography.)

2. Is this your full-time job? (Yes, I’ve been a photographer since I was 23 years old.)

3. How many weddings have you shot? (I’ve photographed more than 125 and counting. Nothing fazes me. I am always calm and cool.)

This is a start and I’ll add more later!
