We're looking for a wedding photographer, but we're a bit worried about booking someone online we've never met. Do you have any suggestions?
"In this day and age, the majority of photographers will have a good online presence. Look at their work and do some research into them as a person. Most use Instagram stories to give you an insight into their life, and others will have about me sections on their websites.
"Once I've received an email enquiry, I send over six full galleries that are on a password-protected part of my website. Potential clients then have two weeks to have a good look through, ask any questions and, most importantly, contact other photographs to get a comparison.
"Finding the right supplier is a balance between budget, images and personality, so it shouldn't be a quick decision. However, be aware that most book up quickly.
"If you're apprehensive, ask to meet up or have a Skype conversation to run through any queries you may have."
