Title: 8 Things To Ask A Hawaii Wedding Photographer

8 Questions To Ask A Hawaii Wedding Photographer
What To Know Before You Hire a Hawaii Wedding
  • When you decide to say I do on any of Hawaiis
    tropical islands, from dazzling Oahu to relaxing
    Maui, you will have no shortage of wedding
    photographers to choose between.
  • 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
  • Interview your Hawaii based photographer
    beforehand, and fish out additional, essential
    information with these questions

Can You Describe Your Style?
  • You want to make sure that your wedding
    photographers eye aligns with your vision of a
    wedding in Hawaii.
  • A solid professional photographer will be able to
    adapt the technique to many different styles.

Does Editing Have An Additional Charge?
  • Professional photographers are not only skilled
    at snapping shots but are also skilled at editing
    photos into works of art. They know how to
    retouch and color balance your photos.
  • If your photographer tells you that they will be
    happy to just give you the card right out of
    their camera then they will not be editing the
    photos so ask them if editing comes at an
    additional cost.
  • You will definitely want to have your photos
    edited, so 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.
  • 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.

Do You Carry Liability Insurance?
  • 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?
  • When a wedding photographer has to take a day off
    work, the consequences can be disastrous for his
  • Ask them do they have a second gun, means do they
    have back-up photographer?
  • 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

Can You Recommend A Videographer?
  • A video is the only cure when you feel truly
    nostalgic for the sound of your newlywed laughter
    the dancing of tiki lights in the Hawaiian
  • Make sure to inquire about videographers like you
    interview for wedding photographers.
  • If your photographer has a videographer with whom
    he regularly works, coordination will be
    smoother, and your finished products will
    complement each other perfectly.

Do You Travel Between Islands?
  • Let your photographer know where youre planning
    on getting married and double check that they are
    willing to work with your choice of the islands.
  • A good follow up question would be Which island
    are you based on? A photographer who is based
    near your wedding will be less stressed and less
    rushed and less expensive, since flying is the
    only option to an outer island.
  • Oahu is the most populated island and home-base
    for most photography businesses.

What Restrictions Do You Have About Sharing
Photos Online?
  • The first we do, when seeing our wedding photos,
    is sharing them with the people we love.
  • Most professional photographers take ownership
    over their work and impose restrictions about how
    you can share their photos because the photos are
    their source of livelihood.
  • 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.

Bonus.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 etc.
    These images form the Shot List.
  • Ask your photographer whats on their shot
    list. And you might also suggest a few additions
    or omissions to tighten up your specific needs. 

  • Remember these 8 questions to ask when you are
    searching for your Hawaiian Wedding Photographer,
    they should not only have solid answers for you
    about these questions but be confident in their
    answers and ability to relate to you asking them
    questions. Trusting your wedding photographer in
    Hawaii is paramount to the success of your event.
