What would I tell an engaged couple?
Recently, I was asked “What is the most important thing to know about a wedding videographer before we hire?” I had to think about that for a bit, because there were so many things you should find out about a potential videographer, that I couldn’t pick just one – at first. Of course, you would want to see samples of the finished work – do you like the style of the finished films? Was it a quality film? (no shaking, clear sound, interesting footage, appropriate music). But the quality of the filming was actually not the one thing that I ended up choosing to answer that question.
The most important thing about a videographer is his (*) commitment to spending the time and energy to become thoroughly acquainted with the engaged couple and the dynamics around them. He must become familiar with their tastes and styles.
As a professional videographer, I aim to use my skills to capture a true cinematic look and feel.
