Check their style of work matches what you are after. A good place to start is there website and then check out their social media platforms, if everything impresses you and aligns with what you are looking for, then this is a great start.
Read Client Testimals
If they are a good photographer they should have a feedback page where clients can leave reviews. Hearing what others have to say gives you a good idea what they are like to work with.
Speak on the phone
Instead of sending an email, call them on the phone to make your enquires. You can tell a lot from a persons manner and voice. They want to sound friendly but professional.
Meet them in person
A great way to meet photographers is at a wedding fair, you will also be able to view some of their work in person and have more of a relaxed chat with them to tell them about your day and see if they seem interested.
Most photographers may offer a free engagement shoot or pre-wedding shoot so you can meet in person before the big day. This way both parties can make sure they want to work with each other before making a commitment.
