Some the questions I would suggest asking would what kind of style does the photographer shoot, what are his time limits, do you get a lot of say about what pictures you want, what is the package with the print disk so that you can make all your own copies after the fact, what kind of editing to they do and is it included or do you have to pay extra and what is their turn around time.
I know of tons of photographers that offer unlimited time and print disks for destination weddings do let me know if you want me to send you their info. I hope this has been helpful let me know if you want their info.

You'll want to see a diverse portfolio of theirs to make sure that they are capable of delivering the style that you love - weather that be tradtional or photojournalistic.
Make sure exactly what you are getting - some photographers do prints, some albums & some do the disc. It's ultimately what's most important to you. Slideshows are a great addition to all packages. I put these together & the brides love them. Also, online proofing is such a must have these days in the world of digital photography - this is great for family & friends to be able to view your big day.
You can get great photographs of your day even though you can't afford some of the big names out there. There are so many up & coming photographers out there that are very similar to the high $$ photographers.
Hope this helps!

Pictures are at the top of my list of important wedding things, but we aren't the type to spend extravagant amounts so some of the super fabulous photographers are out of our price range, yet I still want beautiful artistic pictures of our wedding. Are there packages that are better for the price, i.e. include cd of all pics, prints, slideshow? TIA

- But most importantly -- be sure it is a style of work that you like!! - If you are looking for something really traditional, dont hire someone who shoots as a photojournalist..... and vice-versa!

I would encourage you to shop around for the perfect fit - someone who matches in terms of style, personality, and cost
for style: you really want to find a photographer whose work moves you, whose style matches what you're looking for
for personality: you're going to be spending your entire wedding day with your photographer so you need to find someone you mesh with - someone who you feel comfortable with and who can put you at ease throughout the day
and cost: with so many different price points out there, you're bound to find someone within yours. shop around and ask about customizing a package that fits what you're looking for.
