Videography Do’s and Don’ts

 

If your planning on getting your wedding captured on film, don’t worry, Wedlog’s here to help. Not that we need to tell you this, but there are some things to look out for when booking your videographers. So without any further ado, here are some do’s and don’ts.

 

 

  • Don’t wait till the last moment! 

 

 

Plan in advance, making bookings early, especially during the wedding season, (aka winter, aka seafood wali shaadi). It’s a busy time, you don’t want to be the only one with a wedding film that you regret, or one with really bad transitions that you’d be ashamed to show your friends and family, or worse have a video you don’t even want to watch yourself.

 

 

  • Do look at the Videographers Portfolio before hiring them.

 

 

Don’t just look at the shots also look for the sound quality! Especially if you have any speeches planned or a skit during the dances. You want to make sure you get every bit of it. Also look out for the editing style, you don’t want a video with really bad cheesy transitions.

 

 

  • Don’t Hire a videographer just because he’s cheap.

 

 

You might save a few bucks now but consider your wedding video as an investment. It should be a video that you’d have fond memories of and one that you would want to re-watch again and again.

 

 

  • Do take out the time and meet your Videographer.

 

 

YOU NEED MEET THE TEAM BEFORE DECIDING ANYTHING because at the end of the day you want someone you’re comfortable with, if you don’t like him then why have him at your wedding right?

 

 

  • Don’t book your videographer just because he’s expensive and everyone recommends him.

 

 

Don’t just hire them “Kyun ke posh wali feeling athi hai us say” (because he sounds premium), look at his work instead. We can guarantee you there are many talented wedding videography teams that can even bundle photography packages. Yes, they do say “jithna gur dalo uthna meeta” (the more sugar you

 add the sweeter it is), While that may be true in some situations it doesn’t always work that way. 

 

  1. Do take the time and sit down with your videographer.

 

 If there’s anything special that’s being planned, make sure to tell him in advance. If there’s any special people that you want them to focus on let them know! If you give them the right directions, you can bet they will be more comfortable and know exactly what to capture!

Now everyone wants to be ready for the big day, and these moments need to be captured, the bride and the groom will be looking their best, your photos have spent days planning for the right Jora to wear to outdo the mother of the bride. Such an occasion begs for these moments to be caught on camera, that’s why it’s so important to choose the right photographer for your wedding. Finding the right photographer is not an easy task, but lucky for you, we’re here to help.

Remember these points when looking for one…

 

The photographer him/herself

Working with the right photographer is important after all he or she will be spending days with you and your family at events and possibly even smaller get together. You need to be able to understand each other. Look for a photographer that will make this job personal.  Ask them for their portfolios, see their work and make sure to be satisfied with their work before bringing them on the job. Every photographer has his/her own style and that might not work for everyone. So take a little effort and figure out what works for you. Sit him down ask for his time and figure out exactly what you need from your pictures and what moments he should look out for. It’s a good idea to be on the same page before the wedding.

 

Equipment & Gear

At the end of the day it’s the photographer that needs to be skilled but that doesn’t mean you should not take into consideration the equipment and gear your photographer is using. After all you wouldn’t want to spend all that money and just let it go to waste. Looking at the kind of glass they use really tells you how much your photographers invested into his craft to get the best results. See what lights he’s bringing for flash photography and portraits of course this means you need to know a bit about photography. It might seem like a daunting task but a little research can really help you understand what you’re paying for and what you’re getting.

 

His team

No matter how skilled your photographer is, he can’t be everywhere. Usually your photographer will bring some assistants too, so that they can get more coverage, and usually that works out fine. Again, let us stress that you should know what you’re paying for. If possible, do request to see the pictures his/her assistants have taken besides the main pictures that photographer will show you because, usually he’ll want to score a client by showing his main portraits.
