Choosing The Right Wedding Videographer

Questions to Ask for & Things to be Aware of

Having trouble deciding on the perfect Wedding Videographer?

We get it! With a wedding comes a laundry list of to-do’s and you don’t always know the right questions to ask or the time to do hours of research. We’re writing this blog post to help guide your decision and inform you of some important and not-so-important questions to ask your wedding videographer. Ready? Let’s Dive in! 

What Are They Like?

Before we dive into style preferences and a videographer’s work, first we need to decide if we can see ourselves enjoying spending our wedding day with them. Do they have a good attitude, are they energetic, do you vibe with them on the first phone call? These are all important questions that you can answer yourself after just a few minutes of speaking with someone. It’s important to first answer this question because you’ll be spending the most important day of your life with them by your side. No matter how good someone’s work is, if they are a jerk, you will most likely have a terrible experience and regret deciding to use them. Here are a few red flags and things to be aware of before you jump on a call with a potential wedding videographer…

– Are they punctual and excited to get to know you? 

– Do they ask questions about you and your fiance or did they try and sell you something or tell you what you need right away? 

– Did they educate you about their services or were they vague? 

– How did you feel when the conversation was over? 

Style & Services

When it comes to wedding videos, you can find every flavor under the sun. Here in Nashville, there are over 500 listed wedding videographers on Google and they all have something unique and different to offer. When deciding on which videographers to inquire with you should first consider what styles you like and what finished video products you are wanting to include in your package. I won’t dive too deep into style because there are so many, but jump over to youtube and watch a few films to get an idea of what you like the most. Once you have a general idea, you can confidently start reaching out and getting quotes and information. Consider questions like… 

– Do I want a documentary edit (30-minutes to 1-hour) or a highlight film (5-10 minutes) or both? 

– How much coverage do I need to capture all the most important moments? 

– Will I want the rehearsal dinner or welcome party covered? 

– Do I want my vows or letters included in the film? 

– Will I need a second-shooter or will one videographer be enough? 

Testimonials & Referrals

If you’re worth your weight as a videographer, then you should have at least a few good client testimonials on your website, Google listing, or Facebook. These are tell-tale signs that someone is actively pleasing their clients, delivering on promises, and creating amazing work. We highly recommend that couples review their potential videographer’s website and social media to look for red flags or dissatisfied customers. If you decide to move forward with inquiring with them, make sure to address any issues mentioned in the reviews and see what they have done to improve or remove the problem. Wedding Videographers are notorious for a few sins and you should ask about them on the call
