Dulcinea's Insight

  • Your friends and family are good sources of information as well. If someone you know had strong feelings in either direction about the person she hired, take note. Even if you don't come across that same photographer, you'll get an idea of what to look out for in an interview or on a Web site.
  • Make sure you have all the details in place before a big event, and make your expectations known. Do you want photos of certain people or combinations of people? Should the photographer take pictures of everybody in attendance? If you state what you want clearly beforehand, you're much more likely to get it.
