What Expectations To Have When Searching For A Wedding Videographer?

Great, you’ve decided you would like to hire a wedding videographer for your big day! You’re probably thinking now what? What’s the next step in your search. Let me start by explaining the most important part of hiring a videographer. First, you need to figure out what style you like best. For instance, would you like a chronological look of your day, or do you prefer a film with different parts of the day all mixed together? Do you want a film that has more of a documentary feel to it or a cinematic film filled with beautiful shots and poses? Do you like crazy transitions or like a simple, clean, and elegant film that will remain timeless for decades after. With varying video styles, personality types, and working styles, you’ll want to be sure you’ve found the right videographer that fits your needs. But what specific qualities should you look for in a wedding pro? Lorenzo Media Productions breaks it down for you!

Your Videographer’s Style Should Match With Yours

Whether they shoot more “raw” and documentary style or have a cinematic flare, you want to be sure the videographer you’re working with has a well developed look and feel for their work

While watching films the most important tip I can provide is looking for consistency, consistency, consistency. When there is consistency in a videographer’s films you know exactly what to expect with the product you will be receiving. Realizing this consistency will also help you feel confident in choosing your wedding videographer.

A Videographer Who Works Well With Your Photographer

When you book your videographer consider asking for any photographer recommendations. Since both vendors will have to work together side by side, it is important they have good chemistry and have previously captured weddings together. While all professionals should be able to work with one another, a pre-existing history can’t hurt.

A Videographer Who Creates A Plan

It is important for all your vendors to be well organized, but especially videographers. They have much more equipment to carry which means they need more time to setup. If your videographer is a pro, they will create their own separate timeline with you before your big day which allows for such setup time.

Find A Videographer With A Calm Personality

Your wedding will be a long day filled with emotion, so it’s important your videographer is someone you feel comfortable with. Good energy and a sense of calm will be a blessing if you’re starting to feel stressed.

Your Videographer Should Be Clear About What They’ll Deliver And When

From the time you inquire, your videographer should be specific as to what you can expect to receive and when it will be delivered.


Is Hiring a Wedding Videographer a Must?

I would say it’s a 100% must.

If you think that having both wedding photos and video is a bit excessive, or you may not want to put videography at the top of your “must have vendor list” for the simple reason that it does not fit into your budget then believe me — I’m here to tell you… You Will Want To Hire A Wedding Videographer. On the day of your wedding the time literally flies by and there are so many moments you will miss out on that your videographer will gracefully capture, like seeing your parents or grandparents reaction to you in your wedding dress or the emotions you and your future hubby will have saying your vows to each other. Also, you have to think about the sounds that can’t be captured in a photo, like your note reads, I dos, reception music, and let’s not forget about the special toasts that have been prepared for you.

Take a look at what our brides and grooms had to say about their experience hiring Lorenzo Media Productions as their wedding videographers. Check out our reviews from The Knot!

“After working with Greg and Dierdra at my sister-in-law's wedding, I knew I wanted them for my own as well. They are incredibly professional, yet loads of fun to work with. They are attentive and have an impeccable eye for detail. The quality of the video, as well as the style is incomparable to any other video from a wedding videographer I have ever seen. I would recommend Lorenzo Media Productions a hundred times over! They are the type of people you want to maintain a relationship afterwards and hang out, and that was important to my husband and I. You want people who feel like family and take you as serious as family, not just a client or number.” — Krissy

“Greg and Dierdra did an amazing job throughout the entire process. They captured all of the best moments of our wedding day and the final product is more than just a wedding video - it is a movie about us and our love for each other. Greg and Dierdra also incorporated cutting edge technology with the use of a drone - the footage that came from the drone is amazing and some of our favorite. We got our video back not too long ago and have already lost track of the number of times we've watched it ourselves, not to mention the multiple viewing parties we've hosted for family and friends. Another plus is that our video is available digitally to be shared with our out-of-town family and friends. Each time we watch our wedding video, we are transported back to the feeling of overwhelming love and joy we experienced on our wedding day. Greg and Dierdra, thank you so much for capturing our wedding so beautifully and allowing us to re-live the magic of that day over and over again with every viewing.” — Katy

“We only have the BEST things to say about Greg & Dierdra! Not only are they talented, but professional too! They truly are the BEST in the business, we are so happy we chose to work with them. Our sneak peek was amazing, and we can't wait to see the entire video! It was an absolute pleasure to have them apart of our big day!” — Nicolette
