The wedding is one of the most wonderful and memorable moments in your whole life. It
requires lots of planning and preparations. Choosing a professional videographer is definitely
included into the checklist. Of course, the quality of the wedding video depends on the
professionalism of the chosen videographer. However, the bride and groom, as well as their
guests, play an important role in the whole process. In order to get the perfect wedding video you
will need to stick to some grand rules to avoid typical wedding videography mistakes.
Here are the top 7 most common wedding videography mistakes:
1) Finalizing the wedding schedule. It’s very important to get in touch with your videographer before finalizing the schedule. There are lots of things to consider when it comes to filming a wedding. Reserve some time for the natural light shots for example is crucial if you want to get an excellent result.
2) Sticking to the schedule. In general, everything should go according to the finalized schedule because even if you decide to cut some parts it can dramatically affect the video crew schedule and capabilities and of course the quality and content of the final video.
3) Relatives who film. Almost in every wedding there is a relative who shoots a separate video for the bride and groom. What may seem as a favor may ruin your professional wedding video. This relative may get in the way and ruin a perfect moment. Professional videographers usually inquire about this and collaborate with your relatives for mutual satisfaction.
4) Focusing on shooting. It’s very important that the video will turn out to be natural rather than acted. Just forget that someone is filming.
5) Striving for perfect video results. Just have fun and enjoy your special day. Things don’t necessarily have to be perfect. That’s the beauty.
6) Looking at the video camera. You shouldn’t stop what you’re doing and look at the video camera all the time. Of course, in case if the videographer doesn’t ask you to.
7) Negotiate the requirements. It’s crucial to negotiate all the requirements with the
chosen videographer. Tell him/her what you like and don’t like. It’s a good idea to provide
him/her with some examples of wedding videos you like and the ones you dislike.
