Tips On Finding The Right Wedding Videographer

As wedding season vastly approaches, many engaged couples are starting to plan out their special day. From searching venues to finding that right cake, all the little details matter. Last time I wrote about the value of hiring a videographer to capture your wedding day. Today I will be offering some helpful tips in what to look for when choosing the right videographer. 

1. Look at their portfolio/ previous works. Know what their style is like and see if it matches what you are looking for.

2. If you like what they have to offer, meet with the videographer.  Having a sit down with your videographer(s), or any vendor for that matter, is a good way to see if you both parties are compatible. It allows for each party to be comfortable around each other and build a relationship prior to the wedding. The better the relationship, the easier things will be come the day of the wedding.

3. Ask them what services or packages they offer. Each videographer will have a base packages with a certain price point attached to it. Ask in details what each package includes such as hours of coverage, how many cameras or videographers are included, what final product do you get? (documentary edit, highlight, teaser, etc) and what kind of format will you be getting them in? (digital file, dvd, blu-ray etc). Find out any extra costs or add-ons such as extra hours, video love stories, or other services that aren't in the packages. 

4. If you have a specific budget in mind, communicate that with the videographer. A lot of videographers will have packages available but if there is a specific budget the client has in mind then they can tailor it to fit their needs. Be mindful of your timelines as this is the biggest factor in how much video coverage they will charge their clients (i.e. 6 hour, 8 hours, or 10 hours).

5. Ask the videographer if they will be shooting your wedding or will it be someone else. During the busy season many studios will book more than one wedding on the same day due to high demand. If that's the case, ask if that particular videographer is available on your wedding date. Be clear on who you are expecting to film on your wedding day. Companies will disclose if it will be them or another member of the company. 

6. Be aware of the turnaround time for your video. Depending on the high volume of projects they have, make sure you are clear on how long your video will take to be completed. Some companies offer 4-8 weeks turnaround, while others may take as long as 6 months or longer. I have talked to some videographers that are a year behind! Just take this into consideration so you aren't anxiously waiting for your keepsake to be ready.
