I stumbled across an article the other day questioning whether wedding photographers on Craigslist charging $300 for wedding photography were killing the business industry for those professional photographers who charge in excess of $2000 for their same services and it got me looking into it more in depth to the point where I realized it’s basically a huge debate between amateur photographers versus professional photographers. Now this seems to be a never ending debate between two sides similar to Canon versus Nikon and which one is better but I came to a few conclusions myself over these related topics.
Here are a 5 questions you should ask to really know what type of photographer you’re putting you trust in: 1) Who is going to be the head photographer on my wedding day? 2) As the wedding photographer, how do you prepare for a wedding day? 3) Do you have backup equipment? 4) Do you carry the necessary insurance, permits, etc? 5) Do you take certain photos in addition to your style of photography?
