Videographers often work hand in hand with wedding photographers to capture the special memories on your big day. If you can find a great team to work together you will be able to treasure every moment in great detail.
Having a wedding video is a great way to have a more tangible memory of your big day. No longer do you need to rely on only photos, now you can have full video coverage and sound of every special moment. And this is especially useful for friends and family who are not able to attend the wedding.
But before you rush out and hire anyone with a handheld camera and iPhone to be your cameraman – have a look at these helpful tips for what to consider:
This is one of the most important things to do! Watch some of the videographer’s most recent wedding videos to see what style you can expect. Hopefully, there should be more than 1 or 2 videos for you to have a look at. Browse through various videographer galleries to see how their work compares and find a style that you really love.
One of the biggest mistakes you can make is to only focus on the pictures. You want to be able to hear the wedding speeches and vow exchanges, so make sure that the videographer knows what they are doing. Nobody wants to listen to the background noise of guests sneezing.
Try to avoid videos with too many special effects, scene transition and crossfades. These effects don’t age well, and you’ll end up with a wedding video that looks like an 80’s home movie. These days almost anyone can edit a video with all the apps available, but being good at editing is another story.
Most wedding videographers offer a short, few minutes long Highlights video of your day, as well as a longer video that includes speeches, etc. But it is always important to chat to your videographer and confirm which moments are important for you – the vow exchange, speeches, bouquet toss, first dance, etc. That way you can avoid the disappointment of any moments being lost.
