When choosing your photographer, make sure your personalities are in harmony. Also make sure you assign a family member or close friend to point out to the photographer who the "key people" are in your lives.
Questions to ask:
What are the cost breakdown per print?
What are the total photos to be taken?
What are the album styles available?
Are you the person who will be taking the pictures?
What is the deposit required?
Is travel cost included?
What is the minimum order requirement?
Again, if working with a wedding planner, and you have chosen a particular package, all aspects will be taken care of. Always ask to see prior work and get references.
