Here’s the second part of my extended series on choosing a videographer.
As you know by now, wedding videography is a fantastic way to preserve the memories of your special day, from the exchange of vows and heartfelt speeches to the dancing and celebration. But with so many options available, it can be tough to decide on the perfect videographer for your needs. In this post, we’ll explore some key styles to consider when selecting a wedding videographer, so you can find the one that best fits your vision.
First, let’s examine the color scheme of the film. Some videographers use filters and other techniques to create a more stylized look, with bright, vibrant colors and warm tones. This can be a great choice if you want your wedding film to have a more artistic, dreamy feel. On the other hand, other videographers opt for a more realistic approach, with colors that are true to life and more muted. This can be a great choice if you want a film that feels more natural and authentic.
Feel of the footage
Next, consider the stability of the footage. There are videographers that have a style that feels more like a handheld camera, with a raw and more spontaneous feel. This can be a great choice if you want a cozy and personal film. Alternatively, other videographers use stabilization via tripods and gimbals to create smoother and stabler shots. Consider this style if you want a film that feels more polished and refined.
Finally, think about the editing style. Some videographers go for a classic, simple approach, with simple cuts and a straightforward narrative. This can be a great choice if you want a film that feels more traditional and timeless. On the other side of the fence, there are edits that use more stylistic elements like transitions, lens flares, and speed ramps to create a more artsy, music video-like feel. Couples opt for this style when they want a film that feels more unique and imaginative.
At the end of the day…
Ultimately, the right style for you will depend on your personal preferences and the vibe you want to create for your wedding film. Take some time to consider what matters most to you, and choose a videographer whose style aligns with your vision. With the right videographer on your team, you can be sure to capture the magic of your big day in a way that you’ll treasure for years to come.
