Tipsheet: Choosing a Videographer

When hiring a videographer, remember to:

• Ask to see samples from prospective videographers.

• Check the use of light—too much or too little?—and sound: Can you hear the groom saying “I do” clearly?

• Meet before the wedding to discuss must-haves (your grandparents, your first dance, and so on).

• Specify what background music you like; the wrong soundtrack can make you feel like you’re watching someone else’s wedding.

• Be specific about how many (or how few) graphics and animated images you want floating though your video.

• Ask to see all the footage before it’s edited, so you’ll be able to point out anything you don’t want to see cut.

• Inquire whether additional copies for your parents and in-laws are included.
