Create Lasting Wedding Memories 

Aside from love and your happily ever after, you only get to keep two tangible things from your wedding – the photos and the videos. Both are equally important and you should put a lot of care and thought into choosing your photo and video vendors. Here are some photographer’s thoughts:

“A wedding film is one of the TWO things you get to keep from the day. It’s just as important as photography!”

Amber Garrett, photographer

“You will be able to see your love on the best day of your life in real time. Watching how you and your loved ones spoke, moved, danced helps you remember this busy and beautiful day better than any photos I had taken.”

Watch Lots of Films 

The best way to figure out what you want out of your wedding film is to watch a lot of them! When considering vendors, look at their work and note the things you like. I pride myself on creating a film that is 100% customized to you and capturing your relationship which you can see when you watch the videos I have created for my clients. Here’s what two brides had to say about it: 

“Know what you want to see/feel from the end result. Do you want it to be slick and glossy or do you want to feel like you were a witness to something special? I know that sounds a little ‘woo-woo,’ but you can tell the difference!”  

Whitney

“Watch a ton of different videos of their work, and if you fall in love with a particular edit, bring it up and be up front about it!”

Ask Lots of Questions 

You are going to spend the whole day with your videographer so their personality, and the vibe they bring to the wedding are really important. You want to find someone who matches the feel you are looking for at your wedding. I emphasize a calm and collected nature while I am with you on your big day. I come early, and get to know your venue, and the people involved in your wedding so that everyone can feel comfortable and we can get the most authentic film for you. The best way to figure out if a videographer is going to match the vibe you are looking for is to ask a lot of questions and interview them to see if they fit!  

“Take the time to interview them and don’t be afraid to ask for more samples. Find someone that actually likes doing this!” 

Casey

“I would definitely recommend talking to filmmakers prior to booking and ask questions regarding HOW they can best portray your special day. This helps to figure out if it truly aligns with your vision.”
