You’re working with a couple and you need to gather all of the information necessary in order to help them create their wedding photography timeline. But, you haven’t created a questionnaire that you can send them and it’s a month before their big day. Don’t panic, I’m here to help with my wedding photography questionnaire template!
Hey, I’m Lauren! I’m an award-winning, internationally published wedding photographer based out of Boston, MA. Serving my clients and helping them plan their fun, romantic, stress-free wedding is the joy of my life. Over the last 7 years, I’ve had the honor of photographing over 200 weddings, engagements, and proposals.
Having a great client experience can literally make or break your business. And one thing that I’ve learned from my 7+ years in the wedding industry, is you don’t plan to fail, you fail to plan. That’s why I send all of my wedding clients a wedding photography questionnaire a few months before their wedding in order to tie up any loose ends that may exist.
My pre-wedding photography questionnaire, aside from being a handy way to gather lots of information, is the tool I use that helps me create my clients’ wedding photography timelines, create their family photo shot lists, educate my clients on flat lay florals, and how I gather vendor information. It’s probably the most important tool I have in my tool belt!
I’ve tweaked my questionnaire so many times over the years. When I wanted to make my questionnaire language more inclusive I edited my questionnaire. When I realized I wanted more information about my clients’ exact wants and expectations regarding portrait moments such as golden hour photos, I added more questions. And when I realized I could help my clients’ florists out by being another voice educating my clients about the cost of flat lay blooms, yup, you guessed it, I made changes to my questionnaire.
There’s no doubt in my mind that I’ve created one of the most detailed, thorough, and organized wedding photography questionnaires out there. And I’m making it available to you!
Elevate your client experience with this 10-page wedding photography questionnaire template. Designed in Google Docs, you can import the document into your CRM and send it to your couples before their wedding to tie up any loose ends.
Questions in the questionnaire are organized into handy categories such as Pre-Ceremony, Portraits, Ceremony, and Reception. You can add, take away, and change the language in the template to fit your unique brand voice.
My favorite, and most informative pages, are those relating to family photos. We’ve all been in the awkward situation when we’ve put divorced parents next to each other or made mobility-challenged individuals travel a far distance for family photos. Never again! I’ve learned that lesson the hard way and adjusted my wedding photography questionnaire so I never have to be in those sticky situations again. And when you buy my questionnaire template, you’ll never have to experience that kind of discomfort!
So what are you waiting for? Level up your client experience, and look like the expert that you are with my wedding photography questionnaire!
Lauren played such a meaningful role in our wedding, capturing the day in photos that we'll look back on for the rest of our lives. She kept Scott and me calm and sane - Lauren is a miracle worker! She put in 100% effort and gave us her very best, and that means so much to me. Seeing our photographs makes me so excited and so happy that Lauren was with us on this journey.
We just wanted to say thank you again so much for your amazing work. You were seriously incredible to work with and we loved the locations you suggested for both our engagement shoot and the spots in Stillwater. We were very worried about getting professional photos done since we had never done it before, but you made the process so easy and made us feel so comfortable. Thank you!
There was a chunk of time in our wedding planning when we thought we'd go without a professional photographer to save on cost (terrible idea!) but once we met with Lauren, we knew we'd be in good hands. She checked in often and asked questions that got us thinking about other parts of the wedding that we probably would've missed. Lauren captured exactly who we are as a couple!
Lauren and her team are so much fun to work with! She made us feel so comfortable on the day of our wedding, providing both silly and helpful cues to help us relax and be ourselves in our photos. Lauren’s background in dance is super helpful in recognizing simple posture changes that make a big difference, too. Oh, and the photos we got are just stunning!
My husband and I looked FOR MONTHS to find the perfect photographer and after meeting Lauren we knew was the best fit for us. She made our day so much fun and easy. She found little opportunities to make the perfect photo all with a calm ease that comes from someone who has an artistic eye along with experience in understanding the flow of a wedding.
I've been in several weddings and have worked with a multitude of photographers and I never felt as confident as I did with Lauren. I love how professional she is. She helped with the timeline way in advance and we stuck to that timeline the day of. She was also able to professionally and firmly keep unruly family members settled and focused and navigated family drama beautifully!
