Look at samples of the photographer's work

Hamilton waterfront at night
This sounds like an obvious suggestion, however, you would be surprised at how many people book a photographer without ever seeing samples of his or her work.  

When you go to a studio to book a photographer you will be shown albums, photos, enlargements, etc.  At most studios you will be dealing directly with the photographer who will be shooting your wedding, however, at some studios or venues you will be talking to a sales person.  Many of these studios and venues have groups of photographers who are contracted to photograph weddings so, when you are viewing the the samples, who's work are you looking at?  Be sure the sample photos you are looking at were taken by the photographer who will be shooting your wedding.  Insist on it.
