    Just like marriage, communication is essential in many different areas. Once you hire your videographer, communicate your exact needs to them. Be sure to include any moments that they may not realize are important to you.

    If you have a small detail on an item or piece of jewelry that you’re wearing, maybe you’d like them to zoom in at one point during the wedding to ensure it’s on the video.

    If there are going to be any surprises during the wedding, like a funny dance, it’s vital that the videographer is ready when these events are going to occur.

    As you can see, it’s essential that the videographer is made aware of any small details so that they can create your perfect video for you. Communication is key.


    Let’s face it, things happen. They also tend to happen during the worst times. Make sure your videographer has back up items. One that is very important is audio.

    It’s important that they have back up items and an outlet for charging batteries. Go over these details with the videographer and ensure they have backup items, so nothing goes wrong.

    Meet and Greet

    You are going to be too busy during your wedding; however, make sure that someone can introduce the videographer to specific people. For example, the DJ and the videographer need to meet. This will help the quality of the sound come through as clearly as possible.


    Most people like tradition. It’s there for a reason, and it’s one of the things you will remember forever about that day. Make sure the videographer knows that you want to capture all the traditional moments of the wedding.  

    Moments like your first dance, the vows, and the moment you see each other for the first time are all critical in making your perfect wedding video.

    Previous Weddings

    You have probably already asked your videographer for previous work; however, make sure you go through a couple of tapes and let them know what parts you loved.

    Listen to the videographer when you are meeting, and find out if there are any times they love to include during a wedding. They may have great recommendations to be included in the video.


    Keep these tips in mind, and you will have the perfect wedding video from your dream day. For more tips on capturing great moments, contact us today.
