1.    Most Wedding Videographers are a Dime a Dozen

The stark, unspoken truth concerning most wedding videographers is that they are all the same. There is almost nothing intrinsically unique or artistically different about most wedding videographers’ work that differentiates them from others. That’s not to rag on the work of wedding videographers, because for every bride there’s a wedding videographer. However, it is the oft unspoken truth about the wedding videography industry. Most wedding films are “cookie cutter” products that are a “one size fits all” approach to an ever growing market. The secret that most brides overlook is that behind the clutter of the “one size fits all” wedding videography crowd are the few studios that treat each individual wedding film as its own unique story and work of art—the studios that are able to tell a “one of a kind” story and capture key emotions with each individual wedding film.

2.    Price is Not King

Many brides base their entire search for a videographer around the best deal. And that’s perfectly alright; some brides have to keep a strict budget. Now, with that said, the importance of the wedding film to each individual bride is more often than not the deciding factor for which videography studio she chooses. For some brides, the wedding film is one of the most important aspects of the day. If that is the case, a bride will rarely regret paying more to ensure that the filming of her big day is left in the best possible hands. On the other hand, a bride who knows the importance of the wedding film, but goes for the best deal, will almost always regret it.

3.    Know What You Want

There’s a common misconception that wedding videography consists of nothing more than someone walking around with a camera documenting the events of the big day from start to finish. For most wedding videography companies this is more or less the truth. However, for a select few wedding videography studios, wedding films have far progressed from the typical dry, emotionless, “home-video” feel. To some studios wedding films have transformed into a unique form of cinematic storytelling, more associated with a movie than the stereotypical wedding video. The secret to a beautiful, compelling wedding film is not that every second of every hour of the day is documented on film, but rather that the key highlights and emotions of the day are captured. This is not a job that every videographer can complete. It takes an artist, not only with a cinematic eye, but a keen sense of how to capture and retell the emotions of the day so that they can be re-experienced.

So, the crucial question a bride should ask herself when picking a wedding videographer is, “Do I want the stereotypical wedding video? Or do I want a film that captures the emotions of the day and allows me to emotionally reconnect with the most important day of my life?”
