Planning to hire a photographer for your upcoming event? If so, you have to make sure that you are hiring the best ones, like those from Kayla Simpson Photography. There is a huge pool of photographers you can hire, but of course, it is a must that you have to hire the best one there is.
If you want to make sure that the photography company you are hiring is the best one in the industry, ask questions. Some are not as convinced about asking questions as they think that if they do so, they will end up hiring their service even if they are not satisfied with the answers they received.
Just to help you get started, here are some of the questions you can start with:
- Are you available?
First things first, ask if they are available. Some, they will ask so many questions and then, later on, they would realize that they need to look for a different photographer because the photographer they are currently talking to has a fully booked schedule.
Before you proceed with your conversation with them, ask about their availability. You also need to know whether they can cater service on the area where you are planning to hold your photoshoot. Sure, even how much you want to hire them or even how much they want to work with you, if they cannot go to the spot where you plan to do your photoshoot, it is useless.
- How many professionals will you send on-site?
You may also want to ask how many professionals will they send on site. This way, you will know how many food packs you need to prepare and how many envelopes you need to have in case you are planning to give them tips.
This is not a very important question to ask, but asking is still a good idea if you do not want your event to be overly populated with photographers and their staff.
- Can I get an additional discount?
Asking for an additional discount is another question you can ask. Yes, they may claim that they have a fixed rate, but asking if they can give more discount won’t hurt but can be beneficial in case they agreed.
Do not expect that they will agree to your negotiation since some photographers are already posting their best rate on their website.
- What do I need to bring?
You may also want to ask your photographers about the items you need to bring during the photoshoot. You have to ask them ahead in advance to make sure that everything they need to create great photos is available. Do not delay your shoot just because you were not able to bring what you are supposed to bring.
