We're flipping the script. We'll start by bidding adieu to ten questions that you should strike from your photographer playbook, followed by a vibrant array of inquiries that will empower you to find the perfect lens wizard for your event. So grab your camera and strike a pose – because the journey to unforgettable photography starts right here, right now!

"Can you make me look thinner?"

Let's get real, folks! While photographers have a bag of tricks up their sleeves, turning you into a supermodel isn't one of them. Embrace your beauty as it is!

"Can you Photoshop that out?"

Sure, we're wizards with Photoshop, but asking us to erase Aunt Mary from every photo might be a tad extreme. Let's capture the moment as it happened, imperfections and all.

"Can you just lower your prices a bit?"

Ah, the age-old negotiation. While we understand everyone loves a bargain, remember that quality comes at a price. Instead, let's focus on what you're getting for your investment.

"Can you guarantee perfect weather for my outdoor event?"

If only we had control over the weather! While we can't summon sunshine or banish rain clouds, we'll work with whatever Mother Nature throws our way and still capture some amazing shots.

"Can you take a few more photos? Just a hundred or two."

We love your enthusiasm, but let's not overdo it. Quality over quantity, remember? Trust us, you'll thank us later when you're not overwhelmed with hundreds of nearly identical shots.

"Can you make my ex disappear from the photos?"

We've got skills, but erasing people from your past isn't one of them. Let's focus on the joy of the occasion rather than dwelling on who's no longer in the picture.

"Can you copy these exact poses from Pinterest?"

While inspiration is great, let's leave room for some creativity. We'll capture your unique vibe rather than replicating someone else's photoshoot.

"Can I get all the raw, unedited photos?"

Trust us, you don't want to see the unedited versions. Like a chef's secret recipe, our editing process is what makes the final product shine.

"Can you add my brother who lives in Singapore into the photos?"

As much as we'd love to do that, adding a photo taken on a phone, with completely different lighting, backgrounds and feel is a big ask.

"Can you make me look younger?"

Ah, the eternal quest for the fountain of youth! While we can work some editing magic, let's celebrate the beauty of aging gracefully instead.

Now, Here are 10 Questions You Should Ask Your Event Photographer

Interest: Ready to make your photography experience a breeze? Here are some questions that'll help you get the most out of your event photographer!

"What's your style?"

Every photographer has their unique flair. Whether you're into candid shots or posed portraits, make sure your photographer's style aligns with your vision.

"How many events like mine have you shot?"

Experience matters! Asking about past projects similar to yours will give you confidence in your photographer's ability to handle your event.

"Can I see a full gallery from a recent event?"

Don't just rely on the highlights reel. Request to see a full gallery from a recent event to get a sense of the photographer's consistency and attention to detail.

"What's included in your packages?"

Clarify what you're getting for your investment. From hours of coverage to the number of edited photos, make sure you're on the same page.

"Do you have backup equipment?"

Murphy's Law loves to crash parties. Ensure your photographer has backup gear in case of any technical mishaps.

"How do you handle unexpected situations or emergencies?"

From sudden rain showers to a runaway flower girl, find out how your photographer stays cool under pressure.

"Can I provide a shot list or specific requests?"

It's your event, after all! Let your photographer know if there are any must-have shots or special requests you have in mind.

"What's your turnaround time for delivering the final photos?"

Patience is a virtue, but it's also nice to know when you can expect to relive the magic of your event through photos.

"Do you offer any extras like albums or prints?"

Level up your photography experience with extras like custom albums or prints to cherish for years to come.

"How do we secure our date with you?"

Don't let someone else steal your photographer! Find out what the booking process entails to secure your spot on their calendar.

Armed with these questions, you're ready to find the perfect event photographer to capture every moment of your special day! So go ahead, ask away, and let the magic unfold behind the lens.
