Tips on how to book a Wedding Videographer

There is so much to take in on your Wedding Day. It goes by quickly. You won't be able to see or hear everything. Your wedding photos will give you images of moments in time. A Wedding Video will capture those moments with emotion, movement and sound. 

Our Number 1 Tip is to hire an experienced Wedding Videographer.

One that will capture all the key moments and more. A professional will skillfully move around and film more than a record of the day. He'll recognize special candid moments, picturesque backdrops and flattering light.  You want someone with a calming personality than can handle any situation. It's a long and emotional day. Make sure the film style is one that you're comfortable with. Watch sample videos and short highlight films. Video editing and post production is a fine art. It can easily become overwhelming if you're not a pro.
Good storytelling and professional editing equipment are key to a great wedding video.

Wedding Video packages are priced by hours of coverage, number of videographers and finished product. Decide if you want to book the entire day. That would include getting ready, ceremony, reception and grand exit. If not, you can go with less time. 
If you go with just the ceremony, make sure the videographer has a good wireless lapel microphone to record the vows.

Think about your favorite movie for a minute? How many times does the camera cut to different angles? It's so common that it's not something you think about often.The same thing goes for a wedding video. Two cameras are better than one. Moving back and forth with clips from different angles, makes for a more engaging video. We added a stationary camera set at the back of the church.

Lastly, make sure you know when you'll receive the finished product. Will it be on DVD or an USB flash drive? What is the video length? Music? Will it include a short highlight video? 

Whatever you choose to do, choose the best you can afford. Make budget compromises on things that won't last, like food and flowers. You won't regret it. Your video will allow you to relive all the special moments of your Wedding Day for many years to come.
