Questions to Ask a Photographer before Hiring

ON the Knot they pose some great questions to ask when looking for a wedding or bridal photographer. How many years have you been a "professional" photographer? What is your training? (Degrees are becoming important again). However I don't agree with "is the photographer part of an association".

I have belonged to several associations and it is most often about handing over the money monthly sometimes hundreds of dollars to have that association.

It is not about whether the photographer is a good shooter or has a degree (I have a Master's degree) in Visual Communications from Ohio University. If a photographer can throw together about 10 decent images shot over the last 20 years and has the money they are in.
I do maintain a membership with National Press Photographers and Sports Shooters because of the friendships I have there.
