Wedding videographer tips

A wedding video provides a lasting memory of your big day, and well edited wedding videos with great soundtracks will be watched over and over again. When you are deciding how long to book your videographer for wedding, you may want to ask yourself the following three questions:

Question 1: Which elements of your wedding can’t be captured soley on camera?

Sometimes a photo only tells part of the story, and there are certain parts of your wedding that will rely on sound to capture the moment. These include sections that involve speaking such as your exchange of vows and the speeches, and sections that involve movement such as the first dance and the tossing of the bouquet. Decide which of these moments will be crucial to your wedding video, and make sure your videographer is present for them.

Question 2: Do you want to be filmed separately?

You may want to see what your other half was getting up to before the celebrations started. So consider having a videographer in both locations where the bride and groom are getting ready.

Questions 3: Should you plan your day around the video or the video around your day?

On your wedding day you should be relaxed and enjoying yourself, not worrying about getting your first dance and cake cutting out of the way before the videographer goes home. Try to book the videographer for at least an hour longer than you think you will need them to get plenty of varied footage for your video. Hopefully these three wedding videographer tips will help you plan your big day.
