Our Top Tips for Wedding Videography
Before choosing a wedding videographer to capture your day, we recommend keeping the following tips in mind!
- Just like photographers, each videographer will have their own unique style and method when it comes to documenting your day. Some videographers will work discreetly behind-the-scenes, while others might like to get up close and personal for artfully staged shots. There can be many variances when it comes to editing styles too, so make sure you take a good look through your dream videographers portfolio to get a sense of what the final product will look and feel like.
- It’s also important to have an upfront conversation with your videographer when it comes to details like the length of your finished film and the music used, to ensure everybody is on the same page! Whether you’re after a 5-minute highlight reel or a 20-minute feature, make sure you double check all of the inclusions of your package before booking.
- We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – if you have a dream vendor in mind, be sure to secure them early! Good videographers are in extremely high demand, and may have a limited amount of bookings available each year. You can refer to our 12-month wedding planning timeline as a helpful guide to hold you accountable!
