How to choose a wedding videographer for your wedding day:
The most important thing to look for when choosing a videographer is experience. A seasoned professional will be technically and artistically proficient. He will know how to gather the right footage, how to properly frame and focus shots, how to discreetly and properly light a scene and take care of audio considerations.
Ask to see a demo. Better yet, ask to see 5 demos. Even better than that, ask if they will bring 25 FULL wedding videos with them to your first meeting. If a videographer cannot bring at least 5 full weddings to the a first meeting, then they probably haven’t even filmed 5 weddings.
Ask the videographer if they will bring 5 (or more) full weddings to view. If they refuse or stumble, then don’t meet with them. All true artists and professionals have a portfolio of their work. If they don’t, how can anyone expect to make an educated judgment on whether to hire them?
Different videographers have different styles and you should choose one which you are comfortable with. Common styles include:
- – Fly-on-the-wall, reality-TV style
- – Documentary, including interviews, voice-overs, etc
- – Arty, cinematic styles
Learn what type of editing and graphics treatment they offer. Some videographers use in-camera editing (which is basically just footage as it was shot, with little or no editing afterwards) which is the least costly but most limited method of editing. Others may spend up to 100 hours editing your video to make it cinematic quality.
