Finding the Right Videographer


Your wedding day will be one of the biggest moments of your life. You don’t want to hire the wrong vendor to document it. How can you find the right videographer, and what do you ask when you do? We’ve got your guide to finding the right videographer below.

Where to Look for videographers

About 8-12 months from the wedding day, you should start meeting with potential videographers. Ask friends and family for recommendations, look on and in Today’s Bride Magazine for local professionals, and meet them face-to-face at a Today’s Bride Show! You should always be sure to read reviews and peruse their website and social media platforms. Video hosting sites like YouTube and Vimeo will show their quality of work and dedication to their craft.


Hobby Vs. Passion

While some videographers might film weddings as part-time work to supplement their paycheck, for most videographers, this is their passion. You should definitely favor someone who is a full-time videographer. Professional videographers who have experience, a website, and a reliable business will make you feel more comfortable than hiring someone off Craigslist. Find a vendor who truly loves what they do if you want quality work. They’ll be happy to answer your questions and respond to your requests to make your video absolutely perfect.

Questions to Ask your videographer

One of the first questions you’ll ask yourself is “Do I need a videographer?” Take this quiz to find out the answer for you! Once you’ve decided the answer is undoubtedly “YES!” schedule a meeting with three professionals and ask these questions:

  • Have you shot at my venue before?
  • What new technologies do you have that would make my video unique?
  • What’s included in the package, and what’s considered an enhancement?
  • How many cameras will there be?
  • What is your style of videography?
  • What is your pricing structure?
  • How long will my video be?

The last question is especially important to clarify, as there are several different length options when it comes to wedding videography. You can choose from a full-length edit, storytelling editing, a short-form edit, or a highlight reel.

One of the most common regrets we hear from brides is not hiring a videographer. Don’t regret a single moment of your wedding day! Relive each moment with a beautiful movie documenting your love, provided by a talented videographer.
