Wedding Videographers

A detail that is so absolutely important to the wedding planning process is finding the right person to document your wedding so you can look back on it and reminiscence fondly. Some couples choose to have a photographer capture the event, while some couples elect to have a videographer take footage, and some even choose both, there is no rule against it. Whatever your budget calls for, if you are looking for a videographer, you will have little issue in Tallahassee as great professional videographers are quite abundant. We have some tips that we believe will help you find the right candidate.

The first tip is to decide on what sort of style you want to employ for the wedding. There are many prominent styles, so you may want to do a little bit of research. The two most common styles that videographers use are fly-on-the-wall and documentary. The fly-on-the-wall style takes more of a reality television approach where the videographer captures the events of the wedding as much as possible without being intrusive or obstructive. The documentary style features narration and interviews with your guests and family, and is presented in the way of any general documentary only with a wedding touch. There are so many styles, some videographers tend to blend styles for their own unique brand or per customer request. You should take some time to discuss the style you want with each candidate so they can steer you towards their strengths.

The second tip we have is to start your search for candidates based on the recommendations of your friends, family, and trusted colleagues, in particular, anyone who has been recently married, or involved in a wedding recently to some extent. It is also worth it to ask your venue coordinator for their recommendations, they may even have a list of preferred or required vendors for you to peruse. Another resourceful tool is online wedding directories. These websites provide information on vendors that specialize in weddings, details include pricing, reviews, bridal testimonials, pictures, demonstration videos, and more! These sources of recommendations will help you focus on professional videographers that specialize in weddings, and come with plenty of experience and customer satisfaction. Once you build a solid list, call each candidate up and ask of their availability. You should only focus on the videographers that are available, or at the very least, not very busy around the date of your wedding.

Once you have the appointments set, prepare a slew of questions for each candidate. The goal is to determine which candidate you can trust implicitly, so if you are not comfortable with a candidate at all during the interview, then do not consider them. Get the personal contact information of all the candidates that you are comfortable with. By the end of each interview, you should have a sample invoice so you can compare the candidates that are worth comparing so you get the most bang out of your buck. You should ask each candidate, and get good answers on such topics as their experience, their rapport with the venue, the condition and their knowledge of their equipment, copyrights, their editing skills, and so on and so forth. No question really is a stupid question if you are inexperienced at planning weddings.

If you feel as though you have the right candidate at hand, write up a contract with them outlining every single detail of service, and place a deposit. You should have full confidence in your videographer to supply you with the wedding video that will have your grandchildren in awe at the beauty and love.
