Common Mistakes Couples Make When Deciding On A Wedding Videographer
A well beautifully created video of your wedding can help you preserve those magical moments for years to come. Memories like all the fun times with your entourage, waves of laughter and tears, and the precious romantic moments of the day you’ll want to have available to enjoy well into the future.
Hiring a professional wedding videographer for your wedding will ensure that they will film the entire event and create a breathtaking memoir of your wedding celebration. They can combine creative concepts with high-end equipment and produce memorable videos that will last a lifetime.
However, a wedding day can be an overwhelming event based on the sheer task of planning it. Mistakes can be made. To help avoid some of the avoidable missteps that could prove costly, Fresh Canadian Content has put together a list of some common mistakes couples make when deciding on a wedding videographer.
1. Hiring a videographer based on price
Cheap generally means low end. To prevent disappointments, do your homework on the videographer you want to hire, by going through reviews and checking samples of their creative skill and expertise. Reviews on multiple platforms are key, and “testimonials” provided on the videographer’s website are not always trustworthy.
2. Micromanaging the selection process
Selecting vendors for your big day by yourself can be tedious and not an ideal, especially when you have to manage them for your wedding day all by yourself. This could leave you in a tizzy when you have to physically ensure that every vendor is doing their part. So to avoid the hassle, it’s best to take help from an extra hand or a reliable event planner to help you run the event smoothly. They can also help you make quick, informed choices based on their recommendation before your wedding day.
3. Being suspicious that hired professionals won’t get along
You need to allow the hired help to do what they know best as a team. If they’re professionals, this won’t be their first event or collaboration. The bottom line is that they’ll ensure you receive excellent service to enjoy your wedding day.
4. Not allocating enough time throughout the wedding day
If the hired help are pressured for time, their ability to capture can be greatly affected. Plan your big day by leaving enough time for the professionals throughout the day, especially for location, travel, and setup. A 10% additional buffer is usually a good idea.
