Norfolk Wedding Videographers

So, the biggest day of your life is fast approaching and you are scrambling around trying to get everything together. We know there is a lot of excitement in the air and probably a good deal of worrying about whether everything will come together in time. That is why having a number of professional wedding vendors for various aspects of your wedding can be such a huge factor. One of the vendors that you have for sure decided to hire is a videographer. Yes, we agree that photography is fabulous, but there is really nothing like having a movie of your big day. But in order to make the movie something that you will want to pull out again and again, you need a really high quality professional videographer to work their magic. And we are here to help make that happen. So, when you start searching around the Norfolk area for a videographer that suits you best, make sure you find out the answers to these questions before your hire anyone.

You can start checking out potential videographers for your wedding by doing a search online and checking out some individual websites that show what they are capable of. You can also ask your coworkers, family, and friends if they have seen any wedding video footage recently that looked absolutely amazing. There are also wedding sites that list out vendors including videographers. It will take some time for sure, but you should be able to come up with 3 to 5 names that you want to sit down with and meet. Before your setup a meeting time, make sure that you find out if they even have your wedding date available. For the ones that do, setup a time and place you can meet them and interview them.

Why not get money out of the way right off the bat. Each candidate might have a flat rate to give to you, but most videographers will have a number of packages to offer you that will include a number of services for a rate that will usually save you some money. Look for the package that suits you and have the candidate walk you through everything they will provide with said package. Also, you will want to talk a lot about their shooting style. Do they consider themselves more of a documentarian or a cinematographer? You will want to discuss this in depth because it will affect not only your day but your finished product. Find out how they like to operate, do they stay in the background for the most part or are they constantly barking orders and arranging people and things. You need to decide whatever their style is, that you are alright with it.

Of course, you will want to talk about their experience. How many years have they been in business? How many wedding have they shot? Do they enjoy being a part of a wedding and providing a product that people look forward to? Ask them to provide you with samples of their wedding movies. Also, take a look at raw footage to get a sens of how they operate. Are they willing to coordinate all of the shooting with your photographer? You don't want each one getting in the way of the other. Find out if they use state of the art equipment. How long will the post-production process take? How much will you be involved in that process? Searching for the perfect videographer for you involves some research and knowing the right questions to ask. We hope this brief guide leads you to the professional that will make you happy.
