1. Brides, meet with your videographer and go over your wedding day plans. Will there be a first look? etc.
2. Supply your videographer with an itinerary of the day. This will help better prepare the videographer for certain events that will take place throughout the day.
3.Trust your videographer and his or her skills, you hired them for a reason I hope, and not just because they have a camera.
4.Videographers need to be prepared for multiple situations. They should have plenty of adapters to plug their audio recorder into the DJ’s mixer for clean audio for your finished video. They should also be prepared to move if need be to get the best shot, if it is allowed.
5.Videographers should keep in contact with the photographer and explain how they plan on shooting the wedding. This will allow both vendors to capture great shots of you and not of one or the other in your shot with you.
I have been working in television/media for over 16 years. My experience includes news photojournalist, editor, and storyteller. It is my belief that you have a chance to better your skills each time you pick up the camera. I strive to be better than I was yesterday.
