What You Should Know Before
Hiring a Wedding Videographer

 Hiring a Wedding Videographer

You’ve probably heard a lot about the importance of hiring a trusted team of wedding vendors while planning your big day. There are a lot of people you’ll want on your side, from wedding planners to photographers. But there’s one more important player you shouldn’t overlook: a wedding videographer.

Wedding Videography is an investment that we believe is worthwhile if you have the funds. After all, is said and done, your wedding photos and wedding video are all you have to remember your special day by, which is why narrowing down your wedding videographer options can be difficult. This is where we step in. Whether you’ve decided to hire a wedding videographer for your wedding or are still undecided, here’s everything you need to know while you look.

Why Should You Use A Wedding Videographer?

With the press of a button, your wedding video brings your special day back to life. When you press play, you’ll be able to relive all of those wonderful memories over and over again. Wedding photography has a similar ring to it, but having a wedding video to accompany your photos will provide you with the complete experience to look back on. And you can be certain that your wedding photographer and wedding videographer will not miss a single moment.

Wedding Videography Packages and Prices

Wedding Videographers, like any other wedding vendor, typically have a variety of different offerings to help you create the perfect package for you. Packages allow couples to hand-pick services that meet their needs and budget.

When hiring a wedding videographer, you’re likely to encounter the following package options:

Film Trailer/Teaser (1-2 min)

Have you ever seen a film trailer? This is the same idea as before, but for your wedding day. This trailer—or teaser film—is created by your wedding videographer while they continue to edit and craft the final product. It is often accompanied later by a short film. Some wedding videographers include a teaser video as part of their package, while others charge an extra fee for it.

Film Highlights (3-10 min)

The Wedding highlight film is the final product you will receive from many wedding videographers. This film, one of the most popular package options, is non-linear (not necessarily in chronological order) and takes a more modern approach. It’s a three to a ten-minute cinematic montage of the most memorable scenes.

Film in Short Form (10-20 min)

If you choose a wedding videography package that includes a short film, you will receive an edited version of your wedding footage in a more linear format (in chronological order). This format usually includes a portion of your vows, reception toasts, and so on. The film may also include getting ready footage, first look footage, and your grand exit, depending on how long you book your videographer for.

Editing on the Same Day (4-10 min)

Some wedding videographers offer the option of having your wedding footage edited on the spot and shown during your reception. Though this item is more difficult to find, it can be a fun surprise for guests on the day of the event.

Documentary in its entirety (30-90 min)

If you want to relive the majority of your wedding day, this is the option for you! Your wedding videographer can make a longer film that includes entire segments of your wedding, such as the ceremony. Because of the length, this option most resembles an actual wedding film.

Wedding Videographer styles of Filming

While each videographer adds their own artistic touch to their work, most videographers can be classified into a few styles. The following are the most popular styles to look for in your search:

Cinematic is the most common type of videographer. These films are most like real movies, but they’ve been edited and stylized to look like cinematic works of art, hence the name. Cinematic videography is divided into two distinct styles: Modern Abstract and Classic.

A non-linear approach characterises modern abstract style. The way the footage is arranged and the music used in these films is designed to make the viewer feel something. A modern abstract film’s footage is more likely to include atmospheric footage, or B-roll, which helps capture the overall mood of the day. Modern abstract films typically use little or no dialogue from the present day.

While modern abstract films are almost entirely non-linear, classic films may provide a stylistic edit of events from the day in between bits of B-roll. While the wedding atmosphere remains, your video will include more intact footage or sound bites of events.

Journalistic / Documentary Video- A video journalistic approach aims to capture the day as it happens. This means that your film will include footage of some of your wedding’s most memorable moments while also emphasising other events such as getting ready, guests interacting before the ceremony, messages from guests, dancing at the reception, and so on.

Storytelling- A storytelling style uses sound bites—both from the day and recorded later—to tell the story of your wedding. While music is used to elicit an emotional response in other types of films, sound bites are used for dramatic effects in storytelling.
