There is no substitute for a professional producer of wedding videos. Friends and family may want to capture your wedding day for their own pleasure on a home video camera and that’s fine, but a professionally shot wedding video is unsurpassable. The professional equipment used to shoot the video, the post-production processes and the specialist expertise of the professional wedding video producer make all the difference.
A professionally produced wedding Videography may seem expensive, but remember that it is an edited production backed with music and enhanced with special effects. When you consider, however, the many years of enjoyment you will get from your wedding video, the cost of producing such a record is remarkably low.
Candid, natural images should be captured, as should the emotions of the day. All major events should be covered and edited in a way that is visually exciting. Most importantly, your video producer should be fairly unobtrusive and maintain a discreet presence while being at the forefront of the action with a prime view.
There are no second chances so it is important to select a video producer who is able to deal with potential problems or situations that may arise on the day. You should choose a wedding video producer based on the quality and style of his or her wedding cinematography. No matter how hi-tech their equipment or how highly recommended they come, you personally have to like their wedding videos. You can view a range of wedding videos in the blogs below.
Be sure to visit at least three companies so that you can view samples of their work and be in the best position to compare quality, price and compatibility with you. If you’re after something totally different, don’t try to impose your sense of style. Find someone else.
Ask as many questions as are necessary to ensure you will be comfortable with the result in terms of quality, style, format, special effects, length of coverage, overtime, number of DVD’s, edited and highlight versions, access to raw footage and when you will receive the final version of your wedding video. Use our article on Questions to Ask Your Videographer to guide you.
There are a number of factors that will affect the price of your wedding video and these should all be clarified before you make a final decision. These include length of coverage, editing, number of cameras, sound and post production effects. For more on these factors consult our article on What Affects Pricing.
Ideally your photographer and videographer should meet before the event to co-ordinate camera positions (so they stay out of each others shots), lighting set-ups, if required, and power outlet use. You will find that many photographers can provide you with a short highlights wedding video in addition to wedding photography so this is worth investigating.
