3 Things to Consider:
- Request wedding video samples the videographer has shot to give you a proper idea of their filming style. The sample should include more excerpts of an actual wedding than a highlight. Highlights tend to focus on artistic shots to sell their services.
- Ensure that your videographer has the equipment for good sound quality, so that you won’t be disappointed when you find you can’t hear your vows in your video later on.
- The number of weddings a videographer has recorded is a better way of measuring experience than the number of years worked. A general rule of thumb is to select a videographer who has shot at least 30 weddings.
3 Questions to Ask:
1.How will you be coordination with the photographer that will be at my wedding?
Not hiring from the same studio? Introduce your photographer & videographer to each other a few weeks before your wedding. They can work together to ensure that all parts of your wedding are covered so you won’t miss a moment.
2.What kind of lighting do you need?
Keeping the lights on all night can ruin the look of your décor and destroy the ambiance. A great videographer will be able to produce a beautiful film without physically affecting the mood of your wedding.
3.Will I get a video of the entire footage without edits?
Your videographer won’t always know which moments you’ll want to remember forever. Getting all the footage they shoot ensures you can keep that video of grandpa going on the dance floor forever and to transfer onto other video formats.
