How to Choose a Right Wedding Videographer
No doubt you’ll have some great memories of your wedding, but the very best way to preserve and share these memories is to make sure that you have an artistically produced, high-quality video of your wedding day. To ensure that this will be a reality

No doubt you’ll have some great memories of your wedding, but the very best way to preserve and share these memories is to make sure that you have an artistically produced, high-quality video of your wedding day. To ensure that this will be a reality, you should take care to take the right steps in choosing a videographer and video editing company to capture the day.

It’s important to remember that the best wedding videographers and video editing company combinations are almost always the most experienced. Shooting a wedding is a specialized task, and the professionals who have the most experience often are the safest bet. But there are other important factors to consider when making your choice. Here are some tips that will help you navigate the process of finding the perfect wedding videographer and video editing company.

Get it first hand – ask for recommendations and references

Word of mouth is a valuable tool. Ask around with friends and family and see if they have any recommendations for a wedding videographer and video editing company. The internet can be a good tool as well – search forums and social media for leads on well-regarded videographers. Once you’re starting to look at specific videographers, be sure to ask for references from previous clients.

Look at their work – ask to see demos

Most wedding videographers have web sites, and most of these will have at least a few short samples of their work. That’s probably not enough to give you a complete picture of how they’ll shoot and edit a complete video. If you’re interested in wedding videographer, ask to see some complete wedding videos that their video editing company has produced. You’ll get a much better of what they can do with a complete wedding video, and you may come up with some ideas for things you’d like to see in your wedding video, too.

Check out their communication skills – talk to them

When you’ve started narrowing down the field to a few candidates, start considering how well you’ll communicate with potential videographers. If you have specific ideas and desires about your wedding video you want to be sure that it won’t be hard to communicate your ideas and get good feedback. One of the best ways to do this is to have a casual, unscripted one-on-one conversation with them. Invite your potential videographers to sit down with you and your fiancé for a cup of coffee. It will be tie well spent.

Examine the style(s) they employ

Video pros often have a “house style” that is a mark of their video editing company. While most videographers are versatile enough to accommodate your ideas and your sense of style, choose a videographer who has a shooting and editing style that matches your personal taste. As an aside, watch a lot of wedding videos before you start shopping for your videographer – you’ll soon learn what style of wedding video appeals to the two of you.

The bottom line – consider price

Budgeting is a big part of planning any wedding, and hiring a wedding videographer is no different. Be sure to consider price early in the process. You don’t want to invest a lot of time in examining one particular videographer only to realize late in the process that hiring them will bust your wedding budget.

The final cut – ask about editing and final versions

Before you sign on the line to hire a wedding videographer, be sure that you understand how the process will work after the big day. Be sure that you understand how long it will take before the wedding video is edited and you’ll receive delivery of the final product. And be sure to ask about how much input you’ll have during the editing process as well.
