8 Things To Ask A Wedding Photographer in Hawaii
What To Know Before You Hire a Hawaii Wedding
  • Sparkling sands and rich sunsets lure
    thousands of brides, each year, to Hawaiis
  • You can narrow the pool by studying the
    photographers packages, pricing, portfolios, and
    blogs, but dont make a final decision until
    youve actually spoken to your favorite
    candidates. Interview your Hawaii
    based photographer beforehand, and fish out
    additional, essential information with these

Can you describe your style?
  • You want to make sure that your wedding
    photographers eye aligns with your vision of a
    wedding in Hawaii. Of course, a solid
    professional photographer will be able to adapt
    their technique to many different styles. A good
    follow-up question might be, Have you ever
    worked on a wedding with my style? That
    photographer with a personal fetish for the
    1950s, might be able to show you dreamy pictures
    theyve taken from a wedding that matches your

Does editing have an additional charge?
  • Lets be real everyone has wondered, at some
    point in their life, how they would look if they
    were given the same beauty treatment and photo
    editing as the models who grace the pages of
    magazines. Your wedding photos are an opportunity
    to find out!
  • They know how to retouch and color balance
    your photos, so that your skin is as smooth as a
    pearl and your dress is still brilliantly white,
    against that tropical orange sunset. if there is
    an additional cost, especially for something as
    important as stellar wedding photos, you need to
    know to include it in your budget.

How many weddings have you photographed?
  • Experience is one of the best indicators of a
    wedding photographers quality. If the
    photographer has shot less than 10 weddings,
    there is cause for some apprehension. An
    important follow-up question here is how many
    weddings do you shoot per week, month or year?
    Any experienced Wedding photographer can tell you
    what their average wedding count is per year.
    Because Hawaii is a huge wedding destination, 
    photographers can be slammed, especially during
    peak wedding seasons. You want to verify that
    your photographer will have room for you in their

Do you carry liability insurance?
  • Ok This might seem like kind of a personal
    question, and honestly it would be if you weren't
    hiring someone to do your wedding at a large
    hotel that requires your photographer to carry
    such a policy. Can you honestly think of a worse
    scenario than arriving at your hotel on your
    wedding day only to find out that your
    photographer couldn't come on the property
    because they didn't have an insurance policy that
    covered them being there?

Do you have a back-up photographer?
  • Wedding photographers while awesome are not
    superheroes. They can get sick or have a family
    crisis, just like anyone else. Unfortunately,
    when a wedding photographer has to take a day off
    work, the consequences can be disastrous for his
    clients. If they dont work with a back-up
    photographer and you really want to use them, try
    to arrange a second person of your own. You dont
    want to be stranded at the altar without anyone
    to capture the magic of that moment!

Can you recommend a videographer?
  • Photos make great mantle-pieces and coffee
    table books, but on days when you are feeling
    truly nostalgic for the sound of your newlywed
    laughter and the way that the tiki lights danced
    in the Hawaiian breeze, a video is the only cure!
  • As you interview wedding photographers in
    Hawaii, inquire about videographers as well. If
    your photographer has a videographer with whom he
    regularly works, coordination will be smoother,
    and your finished products will complement each
    other perfectly.

What restrictions do you have about sharing
photos online? 
  • The first thing youre going to want to do,
    when you see your wedding photos, is share them
    with the people you love. For most of us, that
    means uploading the photos to Facebook or
    Instagram or another social media site. Remember,
    the photos are their source of livelihood. If
    youre giving away photos for free, they wont be
    in business very long. Ask if they offer a
    release or even special pricing for printing
    their images through the photographer's pro lab,
    where you will receive better quality than your
    brand X photolab.

Do you follow a shot list?
  • There are a number of iconic images in every
    wedding album the grooms reaction to seeing his
    bride for the first time, the first kiss, the
    guests tossing rice or holding sparklers above
    the newlywed couple, as they depart. These images
    form whats called a shot list. Basically, its
    a photographers must-have photos. Make a list
    your wedding photographer in Hawaii needs to be
    prepared to see, for instance there might be a
    surprise out of town guests, or a Chinese Lion
    Dance, maybe there will be a special Hula
    performed for the Groom by the Bride.
