Expert Tips: Questions to Ask a Wedding Videographer for Your Special Day

A wedding involves making countless decisions, and choosing the right videographer is undoubtedly one of the most crucial ones. Your wedding video will be a cherished memento for years to come, so it’s essential to ensure that you hire a professional who can capture the magic of your special day. Here are some essential questions to ask a potential wedding videographer:

Establishing Reliability and Contingency Plans

What is the backup plan for the videographer on the day of the wedding?
Ensure there’s a contingency plan in place in case the primary videographer faces unforeseen circumstances. Knowing how they handle emergencies can provide peace of mind.

Who will actually show up and shoot your wedding day?
Clarify whether the videographer you’re meeting with will be the one capturing your wedding or if there’s a possibility of another team member being assigned.

Understanding Equipment and Coverage

Do you have multiple camera angles?
Understanding the equipment and techniques the videographer uses can give you insight into the quality and coverage of your wedding footage.

Do you offer drone footage, and if so, how do you incorporate it into the video?
If aerial shots are important to you, inquire about the availability and logistics of drone videography.

Tailoring Your Wedding Video

How do you handle music selection for the video?
Discussing music preferences ensures that the soundtrack resonates with your personal taste and enhances the overall viewing experience. Our preference is letting the videographer decide since they will be able to recreate the work you love most.

Is RAW video included with the package?
RAW footage is amazing to have because it’s the real, unedited version of your wedding. It allows you to see a lot of the day that never made it into the final edits.

If RAW is included, how will it be delivered?
This kind of footage can take up a lot of storage space. If you aren’t getting it delivered on a hard drive, you might want to make sure you have enough storage space on your home computer.

If RAW is included, when will it be delivered?
This can vary, but having an idea of when the RAW video will be available for download can be helpful.

Managing Expectations and Delivery

What is your turnaround time for delivering the final video?
Managing expectations regarding the delivery timeline is crucial so you know when to expect your wedding video.

Choosing the right wedding videographer involves more than just reviewing portfolios and pricing. By asking the right questions and understanding their process and capabilities, you can ensure that your wedding video reflects the love, joy, and beauty of your special day. Remember, communication is key to creating a collaborative and memorable wedding videography experience.
