How to Find the Perfect Wedding Event Videographer for Your Special Day
This last weekend of August, the largest and most prestigious wedding expo, Bridal and Honeymoon Showcase, will be held at the Royal Exhibition Building in Melbourne. Almost 200 exclusive exhibitors are participating in the event this year and surely some of them are wedding event videographers.
Oftentimes, choosing the right wedding video production company isn’t prioritized by many brides as they do dress or reception hunting. However, having your precious moments preserved in a film is just as lasting as all the other elements of your wedding. This is the reason why choosing the perfect wedding event videographer should not be taken lightly.
If you plan to attend the biggest wedding expo in Melbourne, Bridal and Honeymoon Showcase, and are hoping to find every single vendor you need for your big day, you should be prepared. To bag the perfect videographer, here are some tips you may want to consider:
Have a Vision
Whatever vendor you wish to hire, this particular suggestion should always be taken into account. Before going to the Carlton Gardens for the wedding expo, you should have a clear vision of what you want your wedding video to look. Do you want it to be cinematic or journalistic? Once you know which style of wedding video you want it would be easier for you to narrow down the list of videographers you would like to meet with.
Meet with a Few Prospects
The Bridal and Honeymoon Showcase starts at 10am and closes at 5pm. This means you have quite the time to enquire with at least a couple of wedding event videographers. Do not settle for just one meeting then decide that you would hire that particular company. You should always have a point of comparison before deciding. Don’t go overboard either. The sane number would be between 2 and 5. Beyond that, there’s a huge chance you would be stressed out with choosing.
Ask the Right Questions
Some couples about to be married make a small but crucial mistake when looking for a videographer, or any vendor for that matter. This is making the company spokesperson speak the entire time. If you want to find the right wedding event videographer, ask questions and ask the right ones. This way, you will know how knowledgeable the video production company really is when it comes to creating wedding videos. Who knows? The booth attendant may just have memorized a sales pitch. With asking questions, you will have a better insight as to the type of services the company does and has done for clients.
Price is Not a Main Factor
Many spend their money mostly on the wedding dress and the venue of the reception. This would mean all the other expenses are placed on the list of ‘with strict budget.’ Although price is a factor, it should not be your main concern when hiring a professional for the specific job. You have to take note that with a certain price come additional services. If you could do without these added packages, by all means, go for the one that fits the budget. However, do not be too cheap that you go way more inexpensive than your allotted funds. You know what others say, you get what you pay for.
You don’t have to make the decision on the day of the wedding expo itself. After meeting up with the probable videographers you may employ for your wedding video, do some research about the company. They could be promising one thing but delivering the opposite. This is where reviews come in handy. Read on testimonials previous clients wrote about these wedding event videographers so you would know they are really telling you the truth about their services.
