See what you find. Does he/she have a positive feedback? Is there something that does not seem quite right about him/her? These are all important questions one should look into.

5-Sign Contract Carefully- Do not sign the contract just because the Wedding photographer has come to your house or office to meet you.

Thank the photographer for his/her time and apologize say that he/she does not offer exactly what you are expecting.
