Special moments in life deserve to be remembered, and one of the best ways to do this is with the help of wedding photos and wedding videos. Such media work really well in order to give us the perfect recall to remember each and every single moment of the special day.
Given how a special occasion such as a wedding happens only once in a lifetime, it becomes important to remember that we also have to have the best wedding photos and videos possible. This is what makes finding the top wedding videographer and wedding photographer very important. Given how prolific the job has become in recent times thanks to the advent of powerful cameras these days, it is very easy to find one regardless of where you live, whether in Bukidnon, Cagayan de Oro, Cebu City and anywhere in the Philipines.
However, while it may seem rather easy to just open Google and search for a great videographer, you have to remember that wedding videography is not going to be cheap. Even some of the more affordable ones require a bit of investment. This is why you need to be especially prudent with the choice you are going to make and ensure that the videographer who you are hiring will be the man (or woman) for the job!
To make things easier for you, there are a number of questions which you should prepare before asking the videographers whom you are going to interview. These questions will help you to get to know exactly what kind of services the videographer is going to provide you, and when you have interviewed all of the videographers you are interested in hiring, it’ll be a piece of cake to narrow it down to the person you want to hire thanks to the answers you will have written down.
- The first question you should always ask regards the experience these people have. It is important to remember that a wedding is very spontaneous and situations suddenly arise which demand the videographer to be on the sport, ready to shoot all the events. So when you ask a videographer how much experience he has it will help you to determine whether they can be prepared for anything.
- You might want to have more than one videographer on the wedding day, just in case you feel that one videographer may not cut it. There can be any number of reasons for this, ranging from the wedding venue itself being too large, or in case you want to have multiple angles on one shot, such as when the wedding vows are exchanged. Usually videographers tend to know one another so you can expect them to answer in the positive. If not you can try asking them whether they can bring a stationary camera along with them.
- Ask them about their shooting style. Many videographers tend to favor one style or approach over another, and since you will be the person who will be receiving the final product, you should know how they are going to go about shooting it. Some videographers like a journalistic, documentary-esque style while others prefer the cinematic approach. A rare few can even combine the two methods. Ask to see a demo reel so that you can get a clear idea on their stylistic approach.
These three questions should give you a good idea on how to find a capable videographer. Don’t forget to compare the prices of different videographers and ask about the price discrepancies as well!
