Choosing the right wedding videographer

Wedding filming and wedding photographyMost couples who pay to have a professional film of their wedding made will tell you that the decision turned out to be one of the best, if not THE best, they made. Many couples who didn’t will tell you, perhaps having seen someone else’s, that they regret not having one made. The reason for this, I think, is because the eagerly anticipated day actually flashes past in an instant (add a drop or two of alcohol to an evening and the memories become even more vague!).

There are a few different styles of both wedding video and wedding videographer so it’s important to do a bit of research so you can choose the right one for you. If you like the work; can see that there’s enough experience behind them and like the videographer, then that’s normally a good start. Remember that the videographer will be with you quite a bit during the day, and will almost become one of the guests!

Budget is obviously quite an important consideration, and I personally think that you’ll get what you pay for. At the higher end, the videographers will generally have much more experience behind them, spend more time in the edit, and produce a more polished final film – the same rules apply as when making any high value purchase. It’s important to take a good look around, buy what you like, and treat your final film as an investment.

At the end of all this, you should be left with an amazing memento that will increase in value as each year passes.
