I don’t know what anyone else is telling you, but the absolute best way to do “storytelling” is through SOUND. Come at me 💪🏾.
And because of that, as you browse through choices for videographers, you need to be intentional. Evaluate how they treat, not just speaking throughout the day and music choice, but also the combination of those things.
(This, of course, is if you want a story-driven film for your event)
Now, I’m not asking you to become a film critic, but you should experience the video samples with a critical… ear 👂, thinking about how you’ll be able to enjoy your own piece five, ten and twenty years down the road.
Check out the thoughts in part 3 of the choosing a videographer series!
When it comes to wedding videography, it’s not just about the visuals – the audio is just as important! In fact, the audio will make or break your wedding film, so it’s crucial to choose a videographer who knows how to capture and enhance the sound of your big day. Here are a few tips for choosing a wedding videographer with top-notch audio skills.
One of the first considerations is music. It’s common for couples to want to choose their own music for the wedding film, but it’s important to keep in mind that a lot of popular music is copyrighted, which means it can’t be used legally. While some videographers may use copyrighted music in their films, it’s best to choose a videographer who uses non-copyrighted music to avoid legal issues. And don’t worry – you don’t have to settle for cheesy, generic music! There are plenty of talented musicians out there who create beautiful, original music that can complement your film perfectly.
Next, pay attention to the voices in the films. As you watch films from different videographers, ask yourself: Can we hear the voices clearly? Do they sound garbled or distant, or are they crisp and easy to understand? Good audio is crucial for making sure you can understand and appreciate the important moments of your wedding film.
Finally, think about the overall sound quality. Is it professional and high-quality, or does it sound like it was recorded on a smartphone from far away? Good sound quality is essential for creating a film that you’ll want to watch and rewatch for years to come. You won’t want to rewatch a video with crackly sound.
In conclusion, when it comes to wedding videography, don’t overlook the importance of how things sound! Take some time to consider the music, the voices, and the overall sound quality as you choose a videographer. With the right videographer on your wedding dream team, you can be sure to capture all the sounds of your big day in a way that you’ll treasure forever.
