Every bride to be dreams of her big day almost down to the last detail. Usually, by the time she’s ready to say “I do,” she knows how she wants things to be from the dress, bridesmaids, invitation’s and music. However, one major key role to any wedding is the videographer. They are the person in charge of capturing all your special moments from the pre-wedding, the wedding ceremony itself and the reception. However, picking a suitable videographer isn’t as easy as just picking a name out of the phonebook and picking them. First and foremost make sure you visit their website (if they have one,) and get an idea about not only what they are about but the quality of their work.
In most instances you will wind up paying more money for better quality videographers. You want to make sure you find someone who brings you the best quality work and is able to highlights those special intimate moments between bridge and groom. When picking a videographer, you can try using a few different methods to make sure you get what you’re paying for instead of just luck of the draw.
Low budget videographer: Chances are that if you are not wanting to pay out the extra money, usually more than about a thousand bucks, you are going to wind up with a very home-made looking wedding video. Most low budget videographers are not professionals and typically do these gigs as side work when they aren’t full time somewhere, or just when they’re looking to score a little extra spending money.
Get recommendations: If you have friends or family members who have already been married and found a service they were happy with, it’s a good idea to ask them for a referral. This method can eliminate a lot of fear and anxiety about how things for your wedding will play out, or what quality pictures and video you will have. Your loved ones can help you weed out the good from the bad with their own experiences.
Do your research: By visiting a videographer’s website you’ll learn a lot about them right then and there. Most have a personal website with a slide show or preview of their work. By sorting through portfolio’s this is the easiest way to gauge what kind of results you can expect from the person you consider hiring.
Find a videographer that shares your vision: While the details of your wedding are often left to the bride and groom, it helps if the videographer you hire has the same sort of ideas as you. By finding one that shoots the type of shots and styles you want, you’re more likely to be happier with the end results.
Raves and Reviews: Just like when you visit a page to view a potential client’s portfolio, you can also do the same to see what people are saying about them. You can avoid messy situations by staying away from one’s who have been rated lower than others and find the videographer that can provide you with the quality video’s that you’re paying for.

Above all you want to feel at ease with your videographer. You’re leaving them in charge of recording the most important day of your life and you don’t want to spend half your wedding worried if they’re getting all the important things or if they’re where you need them to be. If you’ve found one with great reviews or perhaps just a good referral from a family member, then they should automatically be where you need them to be, with no worries of stress about what your video will wind up like. You don’t want to hire anyone that you essentially have to babysit the entire wedding and reception. Any experienced, and good videographer will know where to be at the right times and without getting in the way.
Sometimes it’s also a good idea to have more than one person work on your video edits. With two people editing and piecing your work together not only will you get different views and angles from your ceremony and reception, but it allows for fresh perspective. Nobody wants an hour long video of the same repetitive shots or of guests being forced to “say a few words” about the newlyweds. The video’s should not only highlight your special day, but also highlight the guests having a good time. A big mistake that many couples make is not planning ahead. While being so busily tied up with the more tedious details of their wedding they often forget just how important finding a videographer is as well. By the time they sort through various one’s and start narrowing them down they often miss out hiring their top choice due to other reservations.
If you already know and have your wedding date, then it’s good to get a head start on picking who you want. By knocking this obstacle out of the park early on you’re setting yourself up for success by not having to fall back on one that may not produce quality work. Once you’ve managed to narrow down your choices between at least three, make sure you meet up face to face and conduct an interview. You’ll want them to bring samples of work they’ve done in the past as well as their most recent work. Ask to see an album in which they photographed an entire wedding from beginning to end. This will give you an idea as to how your work will turn out and what quality work they produce.
Once you’ve ironed out the finer details, all that is left is to sign a contract that outlines what services are being offered, the final price that includes fee’s and other charges that you will inquire and pay. The contract saves you in case there are many mishaps or for any reason you are unhappy with a service rendered. While it protects the contractee, it’s also there to morally and legally protect the videographer as well.
