Wedding Videographer Options
When you are looking for a Wedding videographer or a photographer for your wedding then looking at what is available is your first step. Most companies will give you the option of them being there all day or just for the reception or ceremony. that decision is normally driven by budget, if you are on a shoe string then what’s more important to you, the reception of vows and the church / reception room part of the day or the arrival of friends and how they help you celebrate the evenings events. On top of that you may be able to keep them for a period of time. 1-3 hours 3-5 hours 5-7 hours etc. The difference when it comes to choosing between using a photographer or a videographer is one provides you with beautiful still photos of your day, whereas the latter provides a high quality and professionally edited film.
Making the decision of which Videographer
After you have made the right decision for the length of your videographer then you need to check what they have done in the past, if they have a website there should be some good links to testimonials or previous jobs they have done. Once you have looked through those and read external reviews about the company you can compare them to the rest of videographers in the area, see who comes up in the good reviews, who is rated on Google, Bing or Yahoo searches then give them a call, compare prices but more importantly compare how they relate to you!
Getting the videographer client relationship right
Hiring the right video man for your wedding is just about price and looking at how good there previous jobs have been it is also about how you get on with them, how you feel in front of a camera they will be holding and how much you trust them. Being great believers of first impressions, you and your partner will probably make most of these impulsive decisions in the first 30 second, how they introduce themselves, shake your hand, offer a professional hug, there appearance, decorum and general personality fits with yours. Don;t be bullied into making an on the spot decision to use a company (essentially if they do this there are the wrong ones for you anyway) there is plenty of competition out there, take your time, look for the Wedding videographer right for you!
