The last thing you want on your picture-perfect wedding day is for your high-priced photographer to handle a crisis with anything other than finesse and professionalism. It never hurts to float a few hypothetical situations by potential photographers to see how they would soothe a troublesome situation. For example, does he have a plan in place for handling an equipment malfunction? How would he soothe a nervous flower girl during pre-wedding photos or improvise with indoor photography if inclement weather makes outside shots impossible?
Any seasoned photographer will have an idea of how he would react in such a situation, as well as a few real-life examples to share.
