What to consider when hiring a wedding videographer?
Your wedding videographer might come with different qualities. Wedding videographers might specialize in certain fields and with that said you should look at the important aspects into what they have to offer. Below is a list of important details you should expect from your wedding videographer.
When hiring a wedding videographer, the experience they possess speaks volumes. An experienced wedding videographer should be doing at least 35 to 50 weddings a year, sometimes more. If your videographer has over 50 weddings annually, I wouldn’t be worried because that means they have experience in shooting different weddings. The more weddings they have shot the better.
You might be wondering why experience is so important. It is important because it shows you the level of professionalism your chosen videographer possesses.
Does your wedding videographer use mirrorless cameras?
The answer should always be yes!
Another important factor that is always ignored! The gear… For example, shooting with mirrorless 4k cameras is very important and might be difficult for those who are not used to the latest technology. Unless you are not fussy about the video quality you might as well have a shaky out of focus video.
If you are paying a lot of money for your wedding videographer, it is important to check and see if they are using mirrorless cameras, normally Fujifilm. There is a lot of gear that videographers use, but many videographers still use the normal HD video cameras and handheld camcorders. These types of cameras are the average cameras that don’t offer you cinematic look, like what the mirrorless can give you.
The video can never be pleasant to watch with bad audio. The audio and video go hand in hand. Never be afraid to ask your videographer how they record the audio during the ceremony and reception, most importantly if you are getting married in a church. If the audio recorder is not good enough you might not get the best as there are echoes. Or if you are having a garden wedding the bad audio might capture the wind and the noise around.
Just make sure they have the lapel microphone attached to the groom’s suit or in the podium. The sound should be good from every angle including for the people that are chosen to talk and your singers if available.
Recording audio at the reception.
The reception might be noisy because the radio might be too loud, guests ululate and talk, etc. Talk to your videographer and be sure they have the right audio recorders / or recording devices that have the capabilities of getting sound straight from the DJ. Your wedding videographer must also be able to capture the reaction from the guests. This includes both good video and good audio.
