How to choose wedding videographer?

How do you know when the wedding videographer is the perfect fit for you? Before choosing the videographer for your wedding day, you have to answer three questions:

  1. What is the overall wedding video style you like most?
  2. What is the optimal videography package for your needs?
  3. What is your budget for the wedding videography?

1. Wedding Video Styles.

There are many different ways to capture and present the wedding video. Every videographer has their unique style, and you can normally break those down to the following:

  • cinematic
  • documentary
  • vintage
  • storytelling
  • traditional

When you look at work examples of the videographer, it’s going to be clear which of the styles they follow. At Camerative, our videos are always storytelling, with cinematic and documentary elements. We will re-tell your wedding day in a most beautiful and creative way. We believe it’s important to not only capture the main events of the wedding day — such as ceremony, vows, toasts — but also include the most dramatic cuts in the final film. It’s best when the story is told by those who witnessed the day, and we enhance the experience with carefully selected and synchronized soundtrack.

2. Video Packages.

You and your partner should always discuss what features you think would be right for you. When in doubt, or if there are any questions — always talk to your videographer. Ask questions about what exactly is included in the package, don’t be afraid to inquire about specifics. A wedding videographer is there to understand your needs, and guide you to select whatever services are required. Not to up-sell something you won’t need, but instead help you get the optimal result. For example, if you have a smaller wedding you may need only one videographer. Or for traditional wedding that is longer than normal, you’d likely need to order additional coverage hours. Whatever the case, feel free to reach out anytime and we’ll provide all the support and advice you need.

3. Wedding Video Budget.

After many years of filming weddings and talking to our couples, it’s interesting to see that wedding videography is oftentimes one of the last thing to add to your budget. With that said, we strongly believe that wedding film is a truly priceless asset. It’s something that will keep bringing back the sweetest and warmest memories of one of the most important days of your life. I always like to say — you can have delicious cake, beautiful flowers, unique venue and lively band — but only wedding videographer can capture all those details for you. We are there to ensure no moment is missed and the final wedding film you receive is something you will cherish for many years.
