Are the photos of real weddings?

Near the Distillery District in Toronto
Ask if the photos you are looking at are shots of actual weddings. Some photographers will hire professional models to shoot simulated wedding photos. These would be the featured photos in their portfolio, however, it is very unlikely they could duplicate the quality of these photos on a wedding day.

Make sure you see photos of entire weddings from start to finish so you know the photographer has photographed actual weddings.

I have seen non-professional photographers hanging around parks which are popular for wedding photos. As the brides and grooms pass by they ask if they can take a photo of them. Those photos will later appear in the photographers portfolio with the implication that the photographer shot the wedding. This gives the impression that the photographer has shot a large number of weddings when in fact they may have never shot a single wedding.
