Tips on What to Ask When Interviewing Videographers for Your Wedding

Have you ever wondered why in fairytales, there’s never a part when a princess is organizing her wedding? Well, I believe it’s because she’d probably go through a nervous breakdown or several of them.

Organizing a wedding can be quite frustrating – chances are that you dreamed about your big day since you were a little girl and you probably have a picture in your mind of how your wedding should look like. So, you have set the bar pretty high and you have expectations which need to be fulfilled. If you don’t want those expectations to turn into disappointments, you need to start realizing your plans on time.

You definitely want your big day to be well recorded, so you can reminiscence about the day you declared the most important type of partnership you ever will for years to come – and that’s why you need a good videographer.

Previous Experience

When starting an interview, you should first take a look at your interviewees’ portfolio. Different artists have a different approach and you should make sure that you like their style. The first question to ask is whether their work is in the form of a documentary or is it cinematic. Naturally, check if they are flexible to meet your terms and requirements.

Quality of Audio Production

Inexperienced videographers can make a living hell out of your life and, therefore, you need to ask them about every detail when it comes to their services. Some of them don’t have proper audio coverage and the only thing they use for recording audio is their video equipment. This doesn’t necessarily mean that your video will be a disaster, but you shouldn’t take your chances – placing a microphone into the groom’s pocket for example is a smart precaution.

Work Hours

So there are no any misunderstandings and additional stress during your wedding, you should remember to check for how long your potential videographer will be present and whether there are other weddings they need to film that same date.

Is There Video Editing Involved?

You won’t be very thrilled if all that you get is raw footage that’s only mildly edited. You need a creative video editing service company who will turn your movie into a realistic version of your wedding fantasy and you shouldn’t settle for anything less. Therefore, you must remember to ask your interviewee whether or not this is included in their service.

How Long Before You Get Your Movie?

Some videographers take longer to hand over the complete version of you wedding video and that’s just fine – you should let them do their magic. However, make sure to determine a deadline when you hire them because these things can take forever if you don’t set a concrete date.

Like everything else regarding your wedding, you need to be comfortable with your choice when it comes to videographers, which is why I insisted on taking your time. That way, you can hold as many interviews as you need until you find the right person for the job.
