When you plan a wedding, there are so many things to be finalised, so many details to be considered. The list can be overwhelming. Here are our top tips to the prospective bride and groom on how to finalize on one of the most important aspects of your D-Day, your wedding film. Picking the best videographer is as important as hiring the best photographer.
When you are on the lookout for a potential videographer, based on references, it may be tricky to find out if the vendor matches your style and will understand what you require and give you a product that is immensely satisfying and cherishing to you. When you get speaking with the videographers, you must know what to ask in the first place. It is important that you decide what you want to see in your wedding film.
Do not hesitate to ask questions and clarify your doubts. Here are some things that you need to check with your videographer before you hire him for the all-important day in your life.
- When did the videographer begin filming weddings and his experience in the wedding industry?
- Discuss his wedding style – for example, whether he can do classic or documentary or cinematic, check for his forte and whether he can articulate his style convincingly? Can he translate your ideas and preferences into the video and is he someone who gives importance to your requirements?
- Check how many people will be filming the wedding and what aspects of the wedding and the ceremony as such will be filmed. If there is more than one videographer, do be clear about how much involved they can be without seeming to be too intrusive or too inattentive and careless.
- If you are hiring a separate wedding photographer, check whether the both of them have worked together before and how they plan to work in sync, so that the best outcome can be achieved.
If someone has answered the above questions satisfactorily, then this is the wedding videographer I would use. So good luck and happy wedding planning!
