How to find YOUR best wedding videographer
Wedding videos are becoming a must for your wedding. Here is a little guide to choose the right pro for you.
1 . Take The Search of a Videographer As Seriously As You Do For Your Photographer
Hiring a videographer seems to be pushed back to the end of the “to do” list.
Planning ahead always pays: you can choose the one you really love and not some plan b. Just like photographers, videographers take different approaches to their craft. You’ll find plenty of pros with different styles, packages and approach, make sure you have the one that suits better with your own. And most important: don’t be afraid to ask!
2. Start to Use Vimeo
Every good videographer is on Vimeo. In this platform you can find all the best wedding videos from all over the world. Plus it’s the preferred spot for most of the pros to share their recent work.
There you can have a global view of what a good video should be: proper music, easely understandable audio, smooth transition and effects that complement the story.
3. Read the Reviews
Look for answers to questions like: did he/she capture the most important parts of your wedding? Was he/she a positive presence throughout the day? Overall, were you happy with the global experience?
If you have already chosen a photographer or a wedding planner you can also ask them a referral: usually people that have worked together in the past will work better than complete strangers.
4. Meet Him/She Before You Decide
Could be in person or via skype, it’s really important to see each other face to face. This is the only way to understand if someone is the person you want to have around on a such special day!
5. Read The Contract
It’s important both for you and your videographer. Your contract should include the coverage time, how many videographer will be present, a list of what will be delivered, schedule details (time and location), cancellation policies and the fee. If it’s not written in the contract, don’t assume you’re going to have it. If there’s an extra you want and it’s not written, ask about it.
And don’t forget to double-check!
