3 Tips On Hiring A Videographer To Capture A Memorable Wedding

by Ernest Cox

When you envision your wedding, you may imagine an unforgettable experience you want to capture to remember for the rest of your life. However, while photos can capture a lot about the experience, you may know that videos can provide a complete memory. A smart move is to commit to hiring a wedding videographer to capture an incredible wedding on film.

Multiple Videographers

A single videographer can film all the most important events at the ceremony and reception. However, they will have limitations because they cannot be in multiple places simultaneously, limiting their ability to capture everything on camera. An excellent solution is to hire a videographer who will bring another professional to work alongside them.

Getting two professionals at your wedding is ideal, especially in the morning when you may both be getting ready in different areas or rooms. While a single videographer can split their time during this process, you may prefer when everything is caught on camera. An active camera will always capture amazing small moments for everyone to enjoy watching later.

Full-Day Coverage

While looking at videographer options, you may find various offerings regarding hours. Some couples may feel more comfortable getting videography during their ceremony and part of their reception. However, you might want everything to be captured on film. The easiest solution is to hire a videographer to work the entire day from the beginning to the end.

This means that you may have a professional showing up first thing in the morning when you begin getting ready for the day. Then, they will stay until the reception ends, and everyone starts leaving the venue and heading home or back to their hotel room.

Getting full-day coverage also allows a videographer to capture some behind-the-scenes moments, such as the venue employees setting up for the day. Consider asking a professional about what interesting things they can capture in their downtime, and you can pick from them.

Drone Footage

Drone footage is worth considering when you are getting married at a beautiful outdoor venue or even an indoor venue on a lovely property. The footage that a drone can provide will give you a unique look at your wedding. While a videographer can capture excellent footage during downtime, you may also want to get some action shots during the reception.

Hire a videographer to capture a memorable wedding on film while considering these extras for an even greater outcome.

Finding the Right Photographer for Your Event

The best way to keep your special memories alive is to hire a professional photographer to capture them as they happen. But after working with hundreds of professionals over the years as a special events planner, I know first hand that not all photographers are created equally. Some can really focus in on their human subjects to capture emotion that comes right out of the photos, while others are more attuned to making the surroundings in a photo stand out like a 3D feature. So I figured that I could help people who are looking to hire a photography find the best possible fit for the occasion that is going to be documented. Learn the right questions to ask, find out what types of skills to look for, and figure out what tools and resources are needed to capture all the details of your special event.
