Choosing A Wedding Videographer For Your Special Day

Choosing A Wedding Videographer For Your Special Day!

By: Charish


Just as with photography, modern technology has made it easy for almost anyone to hold and use a video camera. Because of this, more couples than ever are choosing not to hire a professional, but are choosing to ask a friend or relative to record their wedding day for them.

Pros: Well, the only pro that comes to mind regarding a non-professional doing your wedding video is that you won't be out any extra money on your wedding budget.

Cons: The cons are many, if a couple chooses to have a non-professional shoot their wedding video. I'll list some below.

1. The quality could turn out to be shaky, blurry, too dark, you name it.

2. The voice quality may be very poor, or non-existent.

3. You will most likely be left with an un-edited, raw footage copy of your wedding day video, that very well could take literally hours to watch down the road. This could include gut wrenchingly boring scenes of uncle Tom, and Aunt Betty talking about whatever comes to mind at the moment, , and then dancing non-stop at your reception. In fact, you may never want to watch your wedding video again. Quite simply - without professional editing, you will be stuck with every single second, embarrassing, boring, or not, of your wedding day.

4. Without a professional, you will most likely not have music set to your video in sections that any other sounds are not necessary, or wanted. And as far as special effects, or transitions that can create the right mood, , ,you may not have these things as well. You may later regret not having a video that brings back the feelings you had on your special day. An experienced, and creative professional videographer will know how to make you feel something special when you watch your video year, after year. That in itself, will be priceless!

When Shopping For A Videographer The Following Is Suggested:

(1) Always ask to see several demo videos of the videographer's work. If you like what you see, then keep them in mind.

(2) Always set an appointment with more than one videographer, and keep the appointment. This will allow you to compare, personalities, quality of work, styles, etc.

(3) Always ask the videographer how many years he/she has been in business under their current business name. Years, are not always a guarantee of quality, but a business that has been around a long time, is a good sign of quality business management.

(4) PRICE: Making good wedding videos is an expensive business and a true professional needs to charge a price that is both fair to you, but will also allow the professional to turn a fair profit. You should regard cheap quotes with suspicion, as often lack of experience is shown in pricing.

(5) Always ask the videographer, how many cameras will be at your event? A good answer would be no less than two cameras.

(6) Always ask to see the videography contract, and always make sure that every detail, and promise is in writing on the contract.

(7) It is recommended that you ask for wide-screen high-definition if at all possible. As time goes by, and most people are used to watching everything in HD, a video produced in standard definition may appear to be poor quality in comparison.

These are just a few of the many things to consider for a very important aspect of your wedding day memories - your wedding video!
