THE RIGHT VIDEOGRAPHER
I know it’s super confusing when trying to choose which creative partners to hire for this once in a lifetime day. After all, most likely you’ve never done this before so how do you know? There are two important considerations to keep in mind when deciding who to commission to document your event. The first… wedding video varies WIDELY. You will find companies offering all different styles at all different price points. When you are comparing work, make sure you keep in mind that you are not comparing apples to apples. For example, wedding video is not like trying to get a model of car with the exact options and colour you want for the best price. You can easily call around dealerships, tell them what you are looking for, and they will give you a price. No matter where you end up buying it from, it would be the same as buying the same model of car from another dealership. Second, there is so much more to cinematography than what you see in the finished films. It's important to consider experience, quality of gear used, audio capture, and most importantly, the level of personalisation to make a film YOURS vs. just average.
