Your wedding day is one of the biggest days of your entire life – and you’ll want to remember every detail! One way to do that? Hiring a wedding videographer to capture absolutely every moment in a gorgeous wedding film that you can watch back for years to come. But that’s a big responsibility – so here’s how to find the wedding videographer that’s your perfect match.
Get InspiredBegin by sitting together with your partner and deciding what you would like to include in your wedding video. Explore Instagram, Pinterest, Instagram, and YouTube to check out what other couples have made, or look up other videos from events if you would like to expand your search slightly wider. What wedding style do you prefer? Each videographer has their style, so think of what you would like that has more of a “documentary” or “fly-on-the-wall” style or something that is more like a story.
- Ask For Recommendations
Friends who have recently married are bound to share their knowledge and share their wedding videos as well! It is also possible to ask your photographer about if they’ve had any experience working with amazing wedding videographers.
- Do Your Research
When you’ve compiled your list of videographers, do not be influenced by their showcase reel! We suggest you watch three complete wedding films by each videographer to get a real feeling for their style and what they are used to. Take note of the way each film affects you as well. Does the videographer capture the sentiments of every couple’s wedding day? A good videographer can transport you to the wedding day as well as make you wish you were invited!
- Have A Chat
When you’ve discovered three or four videographers you like, get them to meet in person and make sure that you’re in good stead. On the day of your wedding, the videographer (and possibly their assistant as well) will be with you every step from dawn to dusk. So you must get along with them!
- Pin Down The Details
It is important to know what you expect from your videographer, be it during your wedding or in the final film. One frequent complaint that videographers get is that they move about during the ceremony, which could distract guests and couples; therefore, if you are certain you don’t want this to happen, be sure to inform your videographer that the ceremony should be recorded strictly.
