What You Should Ask A Wedding Videographer

Sep 04, 2013 | Posted by:  abi s


Have you been perusing the wedding videos that are being posted online. They range from comical, to ones that make you yawn and one that are down right awful. A great wedding video starts with the wedding videographer. The problem starts with thinking that anyone with a recorder can make a video. Filming a wedding is all about being able to not only capture the tender moments and the funny ones too.
 
        Wedding Videographer
 
Twenty or thirty years from now you want to look at the video and be taken back to that moment. You want to laugh at the antics of friends and family and to cry when you remember the emotions of that tender kiss that you though no one saw. A great wedding videographer has to be an artist, he/she has to have vision and be in touch with their own sensibilities in order to know what may be important to you in the years to come. Hiring a “professional” is fine but there are many examples of terrible wedding videos online that were made by professionals. Here are a few things you should ask to weed through the massive numbers of videographers harking their services online. These are the things you need to ask about.
 
1.      What is their style? If you want an artist production you have to make sure that the videographer knows how to produce a cinematic, feature film type of video. There is a special skill set that is needed. On the other hand, if you like the look and feel of a documentary, make sure that your expert is skilled in shooting in the documentary style never expect that a professional that makes the traditional type of wedding video will be able to put together a cinematic production.
 
2.      Film or digital- this is one area that is mostly about preference today since digital video has become the medium of choice even in Hollywood.
 
3.      Storytelling ability - the only way to tell if a videographer has great storytelling ability is to view their previous work. If you like what they show you then they are the ones you should pick.
 
4.      Coverage- like a photographer of videographer will only work for so many hours. The number of hours that they will be on site must be set before hand. Professionals often offer a wide variety of options that cover everything from schedule, budget and style. It is up to you to select the package and the coverage that fits your event best.
 
5.      Sound – Getting the audio and having a good score makes the video go fromgood to great, how will they handle it? Today’s top videographers use inconspicuous mikes placed strategically (either on the groom or officiant) to pick up the vows and that is a good thing. No one wants a big boom mike hanging in their face when they are  speaking their vows.
 
6.      How will they handle the lighting challenges? Today the best wedding videographers can actually travel light. The new technological advances in video cameras are their sensitivity to light. There is no need for those huge, harsh and obtrusive lights, not to mention how hot they can make a room.

This is an excellent article on a service that many people think they can do themselves. As a classical/jazz guitarist I have seen many people taking videos at weddings and thinking that everything will turn out well when it is viewed at a later date. Having taken some videos myself for youtube I realise that noone does it quite like a professional. They realise from experience what is required. If you view a video a few years later it should capture your special day and be an everlasting memory of it. A good videographer, like a good photographer, will do this almost effortlessly.
