An award-winning, "Top 25" videographer friend of mine, Dave Williams, of DVideography in Philadelphia recently posted a very interesting post on his blog about questions that every bride should know about their wedding videographer.
Most of the time, brides ask "how long have you been doing this?" or the groom asks, "do you shoot digital" and other questions that they most certainly gleaned from a well-meaning bridal magazine or resource site. There's nothing wrong with these questions, per se, but what your really need to know about your videographer is perfectly summarized by Dave's list of ten questions you need to ask your videographer before hiring him:
- How will my movie sound?
- How do you handle lighting?
- How do you vary your shots?
- How do you plan to tell the story of my day?
- How long will it take to get my finished movie?
- Are you 'preferred' by the other companies I've hired?
- May I see other clients' movies and read what they had to say about you?
- How do you get your shots without being 'in the way'?
- Why are your services more expensive/less expensive than other companies?
- What do you to do make sure our movie is unique to our personalities?
Thanks, Dave for the keen insight and hopefully we can continue to help educate the public about what GREAT wedding movies should look like!
