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.
