4 Things To Consider When Hiring A Videographer
Looking to hire a videographer? Awesome! Videography is a great way to capture events such as vows, toasts, and dances on your wedding day. However, there are a few things to consider/look out for when shopping for a videographer:
- Video Length: When you are looking for a videographer, make sure to scope out how long their final product is. Most of the time, a videography company will sell you full day coverage, but the final product is only 3 minutes. What? $3,000 for 3 minutes of final video. Don’t think so. Time to move on to the next company.
- Day Of Hours: Let’s be real, there is a lot of stuff going on during the wedding day. Lots and lots of moving parts. It is normal for things to run a little bit behind – which is no problem, because everyone is having a great time! However, be careful to ask your videographer what happens if things run over. Make sure the videographer doesn’t split before you cut the cake!
- High Definition: Today, all professional videographers are shooting in high definition. If you have stumbled across a videography company that is trying to convince you that SD is just as good – run.
- Blu-Ray: Alright, so you have found the people who film in high definition – but they don’t offer Blu-Ray. What? Seriously? How are you supposed to watch your Full HD footage if it isn’t in a Full HD format? Hmmm…. If the videographer isn’t providing Blu-Rays, they are most likely squashing the format and compressing the files into a final product that is much less than full HD. They might be filming in full HD, but when they edit, the final product is not full HD.
We hope this helps during your wedding day planning!
