How to choose a Wedding Videographer in the Hunter Valley
Here are our 9 tips to help you choose your dream videographer
- Chose a videographer who is experienced in filming in the Hunter Valley. (Experienced doesn’t necessarily mean overpriced)
- Find a wedding videographer that understands how to capture the uniqueness of the Hunter Valley, after all the natural scenery is probably one of the reasons why you have chosen this area. (If you’ve watched any of our films you may have noticed we often include picturesque imagery of your chosen locations to help shape the mood and tone of our films.)
- Choose a wedding videographer who is experienced in the use of drones and drone safety but also aerial cinematography. It really would be a crime not to include aerial footage of the Hunter Valley as part of your wedding day.
- Don’t choose a videographer just because they are the cheapest, bargain basement prices usually mean a bargain basement job.
- Check your videographers Google reviews, are they current? If their reviews are tuned off or missing this may be a red flag.
- Choose a wedding videographer who matches your style and vision for your wedding day. Some videographers focus more on capturing static details such as shots of rings, wedding cars, shoes and cufflinks while other videographers tend to focus more on authentic moments and the interactions between the couple, friends and family. Be sure to watch as many wedding films as possible and note which films you connect with.
- Understand the difference between choosing photographers who offer video versus choosing a separate photographer and videographer. (Read the full article here)
- Go with your gut, if something seems off this may be a red flag. Meet with your videographer in person or via a video chat. Your videographer should be able to answer all of your questions.
- Once you have decided on your wedding videographer be sure to sign a contract and get your chosen date locked in as soon as possible. Videographers that are in demand are often booked out for popular months 12-18 months beforehand.
