If you are like most people, you love to go to the movies. There is nothing like a great storyline, excellent special effects and a tear jerker ending. Well, we know of one sure fire movie that will reel you in again and again. You will never get tired of it. The film we are talking about is the one that depicts your wedding day. Let's face it, you have spent so much time and effort trying to get everything right for your special day, don't you think it is worth a little bit of extra cost to have the day's events properly recorded and professionally produced? But there is a hitch. In order to make certain that you end up watching a movie you can be very proud of, you need to make a concerted effort to find a high quality professional videographer. We realize that you want to get everything right when it comes to all of the aspects of your wedding and the choice of your videographer should be no different. The Corpus Christi area has many excellent choices for you to pursue when it comes to wedding videographers, you just need to do some research and investigative work to find them. Here are some questions that you will want to ask every videographer that you consider to do your wedding.
Your first task is to come up with some candidates in the Corpus Christi area. You can start by searching online. Obviously, you also have people you know that might be familiar with some potential videographers. Be diligent about this search and try and come up with 5 candidates that look like they have real possibilities. You want to make sure that they have your wedding date available on their calendar before you interview them.
How much are they going to cost you? You might as well ask this question immediately. Most professional videographers offer various package levels. Ask them about the possibility of customizing a package that is very close to what you want but may lack one or two items. Have the candidate describe their shooting style. Are you looking for more of an artistic rendering of your wedding day or strictly a blow by blow approach. Or maybe something in between? Talk about what their capabilities are and whether they are able to give you what you are looking for. If your desires and their skillset is not a good fit, then it might be time to move onto your next candidate. This is a very important topic and you need to spend quite a bit of time discussing it. How do they go about their business while shooting a wedding? Are they more in the background where they fade away and no one even knows they are there? Or is their presence very much prominent. Depending on what they tell you, determine if this is alright with it. You obviously don't want your videographer and your photographer getting in each other's way.
How experienced are they? How many years have they been a videographer? How many wedding have they shot? Ask them why they even got into this business in the first place. Look at samples from their portfolio. How does their work come off to the eye? What kind of equipment do they use? Is it considered top of the line? How do they handle audio and how do they capture it? How involved will you be in the post-production process? Once you have asked the right questions to all of your potential videographers, one candidate in particular should emerge as the front runner. Call them up and ask for a written contract. Once you are satisfied with everything in the contract, it is time to book your very own professional videographer. You may have never thought that you would star in a movie, but now you will. Enjoy every minute of it.
