The Right Wedding Cinematographer Really Does Matter

If you're like most who are ready to tie the knot, you've probably been working hard to get everything organised for your big day. One of the decisions you'll have to make soon is who you want to create your wedding film, and this decision is bigger than you think it is.

More Than Just a Handheld Camcorder

Just a few decades ago, brides were delighted to have their weddings captured on film at all. The product was a clunky VHS tape with poor sound quality that virtually no one would ever watch again. Today, though, that has changed on a massive scale. Wedding videos are far more than just videos. They're beautiful films that involve the story of you, and they're the memento that the two of you can look to again and again. They look and sound amazing, but only if you choose the right team.

Horror Stories Abound

One quick glance at any wedding board will tell you many people have made the wrong choice when it comes to wedding cinematography. From botched timelines to poor artistic vision at the outset, many couples have a scary story to tell others who are about to select a videographer. Fortunately, it doesn't have to be as terrifying as you think. There are also plenty of happy stories of great wedding films, and ensuring yours is absolutely perfect just means selecting the right team.

What to Ask

Before you choose that wedding cinematographer your mother's cousin's daughter used last year, you may want to do some shopping around. Ask how long the cinematographer has been in business, how you might describe his/her production style, and what the timeline to delivery looks like. The most important question you can ask, though, is whether you can see samples. You want to see what their finished products look like, so you can decide if each photographer is the right choice to meet your needs.
