The only thing more important than living and loving on your big day is being able to look back at that day for years and years to come. This requires you to have images and video from your big day. For most people this includes everything from the preparation for the ceremony all the way to the end of your reception.However, choosing exactly how you want to execute your photos and videos can be very challenging.
A wedding video is a great live representation of the love and happiness that you and your guest experienced on your wedding day. Therefore choosing the right way to capture this video is a very important step in securing a videographer. You should ask about the videographer’s past wedding experience, whether he or she has video samples for you to view, what type of equipment they will be using, and what packages they will offer to fit your budget. After all, your video needs to be perfect so please ask as many questions as you need to. Also discuss what you would like to see done with your video, you can do this by citing other wedding videos that you have seen, this way you and the videographer are both on the same page. After all aspects of your video have been discussed you and the videographer should make a written agreement so that the two of you know exactly what to expect on your wedding day. An important note ; if you know of a videographer that you absolutely want to use book them six or more months in advance of your wedding day.
The only thing that will probably last longer than your wedding video will be the photos. This is all the more reason to make sure that you choose the best photographer for the job. Just like with the videographer make sure that you and the photographer go over all of the particulars of your big day. Assure that you voice all of your opinions , wants, and needs in order to see how they can be accommodated on the day of the wedding. If you have a particular place in mind for your photos let the photographer know ahead of time so that he or she can plan for what equipment they need to bring for the specific environment. You can also request that the photographer and videographer work together or are a package deal to assure that the pictures and videos look like they are coming from the same wedding. Just like you would do with the videographer have a written agreement drawn up so that you are clear on what is expected on the day of your wedding.
In all you should be looking forward to how much fun you are going to have while shooting the wedding video or taking wedding pictures. A stressful environment leaves very little space for fun times.
