Most couples search for photographers first when planning their wedding, but wedding videos are sometimes a better representation of your wedding, and a great way to remember your perfect day in live action. Wedding videos tell the story of your wedding, beginning with the bride getting ready and guests arriving for the ceremony until the happy couple leaves the reception – all accompanied with special effects, music and a variety of camera angles.
A really great wedding video is the next best thing to being there, so good wedding videographers are in demand; it’s important to book your choice six months or longer before your big day. Before you pick your wedding videographer it’s important to see sample wedding videos so you know the style, editing skill and level of technology that will be used. Ask about available wedding video packages, whether one or multiple cameras will be used, who will actually edit the wedding video footage and what special effects will be used. Make sure you also cover things like total charges, duplicates and cancellation policies before signing your wedding video package.
