A videographer can capture your special day to be the way you remember it. What helps to make this possible, is letting them know exactly what you expect well in advance. You should meet in person to discuss what you need from them which is a great opportunity to ask questions.
Here are some of the things you should be asking your wedding videographer.
What Is Their Availability?
Of course, it all starts with whether they can make your date. Videographers, much like photographers, can get booked up well in advance. To avoid disappointment, try and book the right one for you as early as possible.
Do They Have a Certain Style?
Some videographers can change how they film a wedding, depending on the bride and groom’s preferences. Others will have their own style, and this will be evident in their portfolio. You will probably be considering certain videographers based on the footage you have seen on their website. You can have a more cinematic style or traditional looking video. Ask about how they will make their stamp on your day.
What Equipment Do They Use?
You want to make sure your videographer uses modern equipment that is better than what you might already have at home. Also, you will want to make sure they use professional microphones to ensure they don’t miss a single word.
Do They Use a Team?
Using a videography team to film your wedding can not only increase the quality of the video, providing multiple angles for certain parts of the day, but it also adds a layer of safety. Accidents can happen so if one camera is damaged, there is always footage from the other one.
How Long Will It Be Until You Get the Finished Version?
Nobody wants to be left waiting for six months after the wedding before they get their wedding video back. Also, if they say it will be back within a few days, then this might be a sign that they will rush the editing. Make sure you are clear on what they are capable of doing, and your expectations.
What Is the Deposit and When Should The Balance Be Paid?
It is always good to know how you should budget. Weddings are expensive, so you want to make sure you can afford every payment at every stage.
What Part of the Day Will They Capture?
Your videographer will also want to know the most important parts of the day to you so they can make sure it is included. Maybe a speech by a grandparent, or filming people as they enter the reception. No matter how big or small the detail this is where you can find out what your package allows.
With a lot to organise, sitting down with your videographer can tick one task off your to-do list. Asking the right questions can help to make sure it is remembered the way you want it to.
