Meet your videographer
Every couple in love definitely wants to celebrate and capture such festive and amazing event as a wedding in the most unforgettable way. So, what do you need in order to capture this magical moment for many years?
Choosing your videographer
First of all, you need to choose your videographer. This is a very important step where you shouldn’t be in a rush. The videographer is a living being and it’s extremely important to have mutual understanding and trust between the cameraman and the newlyweds. In this case, you will feel comfortable and empowered and the video operator will be able to work naturally and concentrate on the footage rather than figuring out the details that weren’t discussed before. Finding personal contact is vital when hiring a person to shoot the most special day of your life!
For such mutual understanding and trust, you need to meet the person. Nowadays we have lots of electronic devices which make our lives easier, so why not to use them? Instead of searching for a perfect quiet place where you can meet the videographer you can contact him via Skype. In this way, you can also see the person and discuss all the matters as if he sits beside you.
It’s important to prepare all the questions in advance as well as to determine your wishes regarding the video. Do you want a staged video shooting that results in a beautiful video clip or you want to limit yourself to the reportage video shooting where you wouldn’t have to pose and maneuver in a voluminous dress. Determine how many hours of the video shooting you want to order? Or you can rely that matter on the videographer? It’s vital to determine an exact price of his work and what’s included or not included (USB, DVDs, online links, number of video cameras, editing style, music used…). All these matters should be discussed at the meeting.
You are the top priority!
The videographer should write down all the wishes and show up on the video shooting knowing exactly what he needs to do. Of course, you can entrust all these types of matters to the videographer but irrespective of his experience and authority, your wishes are the top priority and may differ completely. After all, this is your day and it’s you to decide how you want it to be captured.
Check videographer’s works
Before the meeting with the videographer don’t forget to check out his works. So many men, so many minds, likes and levels of the professionalism. If you do like his works, a technique he uses and the way he shoots videos, you definitely can contact the videographer in order to check his availability and meet him.
