4. Do Your Homework
Although it is your photographer's job to have everything running smoothly the day of your wedding, do not assume this will be the case. Leaving everything in the hands of a single person will leave you powerless. In Hughes' situation, she forgot to print out the selected poses she wanted taken at her wedding. Yes, the photographer should have taken care of this, but if she had been able to print out the poses, he would not have been able to use that as an excuse for providing her with poor quality images, which he later did when she confronted him about her photographs. The more leg work you do on your end, the less reason your photographer will have not to live up to his or her work, so stay on top of things - it will ensure that your photographer does as well.
