Finding a cinematic videographer for your Daytona Beach Wedding


There is nothing like an amazingly well done movie that is captured in one of the most idyllic locations on earth. And that is exactly what will occur when you hire a videographer to capture your wedding day in the gorgeous Daytona Beach area. Can you think of a better set or setting? We certainly cannot. We know that you will be more than satisfied with what a true professional can capture. It won't just be moments in time, it will be an entire timeline of activity. We can guarantee that you will want to pull out your wedding video again and again. But in order for this to be the case, you will need to find the videographer that fits your style and standards. So, if you do anything during your wedding planning, take the search for your professional videographer very seriously. Here are some tips to finding the right pro for you.

Before you can interview any candidates, you need to have a list of a few to consider. The best way you can come up with some names is by looking online. All of the information you need is right there at your fingertip. The Daytona Beach area has some phenomenal professionals and the really good ones will have a high quality website for you to check out. You can also ask people you know if they have seen any wedding videos that absolutely blew them away. When you have accumulated at least 5 candidates that look decent, you can start calling each one to see if they are available on your chosen wedding date. Should they have your day available, your next step is to interview them.

Talk about the videographer's style. Then check out their style by asking to see an entire unedited video of a wedding that they worked. Do you like what you see? Is this the kind of shots and angles that you had in mind when you started down this path to hire a videographer? Some videographers actually have a degree in film-making. Find out what their background is and if they can create an actual story for your video instead of just running footage. The editing process will be a huge part of this. You need to be aware that a professional videographer might spend as much as 40 to 60 hours just editing your wedding. This will include moving scenes around and editing in footage and special effects along with music and various sounds. But keep in mind that this kind of work is worth something. Find out what they charge. More than likely they will show you a number of package levels. Look for one that fits your situation and whether you can customize a package in case there is something that you would really like to see included. As your discussion continues, start forming an opinion about whether you believe this person sitting in front of you is able to give you what you want. Ask them how they operate at a wedding shoot? By this we mean are they noticeable or are they more like a fly on the wall? What have they done in the past in terms of how they coordinate their shooting with the photographer.

How long have they been in the business? How many wedding have they shot? Why did they get into the business? Ask them to describe a problematic wedding shoot that they experienced and how they creatively got around the problem or problems. Look at samples from their portfolio. Is their equipment of a professional grade? The only way to determine this is to write down the model numbers that they give you and do some research on what level of quality their equipment is. You want to make sure that they are using a professional grade camera and not something they picked up at a garage sale. Talk for a bit about audio. Will certain people have to wear mics or is the camera able to pick up everything? Once you finish with all of your interviews, you more than likely will feel really good about one particular candidate. Ask that candidate for a written contract that spells everything out that they will be providing for you. You are now ready to hire your professional videographer.
