Tip # 1: Knowledge is key
Arm yourself with some industry terminology, and know what is the difference in various pictures styles. Do research on the photography ahead of time. Know the difference between candid and posed shots. Know what photojournalism is.
Know what you like and what you do not like, and do not be afraid to communicate that with your prospective photographer. Make a list of your requirements and start locating the Cairn's best wedding photographers. You can seek help from your friends, relatives or someone who go recently married.

Tip # 2: Asking the right questions
Here are some of the right questions to ask:
How long have you been shooting weddings?
I would not have a photographer at my wedding that has been shooting weddings for less than 5 years. The reasons for that are many, but the point is that you want someone who really knows what they are doing, has an "eye" as well as technical knowledge to make things happen.
Have you worked at our venue before?
If the photographer is local, and your wedding venue is local, chances are he has worked at your venue beforehand. Ask to see those pictures. If he has not worked there before, ask if he is willing to go there ahead of time to scout the location.
