How to Brief the Videographer for Your Theme Wedding – Helen Clark

You’ve put a lot of thought into your theme wedding, but have you considered how you’re going to select and brief your videographer on what your plans are? If you want to truly capture the spirit, look, and feel of the big event, you’ll need to ensure that the videographer has an excellent understanding of what you’re trying to achieve. And, you’ll need to know whether the wedding video editing professionals you’re considering have the technical expertise and the right equipment to create what you’re looking for. Here are some tips that’ll help you navigate the process and ensure that you’ll get the results you desire.

 

 

Do your research and find examples of the kind of videos you’d like to see!

A picture is worth a thousand words, and it’s even truer with video. Researching videos that match your wedding’s theme will serve two purposes. First, it’ll help you refine your ideas about what you’d like to see at your wedding and in the wedding video. And when you’ve put together examples of video treatments you like, you can share them with your videographer to illustrate your ideas. Wedding video editing professionals don’t mind the examples. In fact, they’ll appreciate being able to see examples of what you’d like to see, rather than having to figure it out through your explanations.

 

 

Make a list of the “got to have these” shots you want in your video!

You’ll get a feel for many of the shots you’ll want in your video after doing your research, and it’s important to make a list of these to brief your wedding video editing professionals with.  This is an important step to take, and this bit of preparation and briefing will ensure that your videographer will be able to properly place his equipment and prepare for any of their other needs.

Be kind to your wedding editing professionals and print out several copies of your shot lists, and take them to your videographer when you sit down to discuss the theme wedding videography with your wedding video editing professionals. That will give them a chance to take notes and review each shot on a point-by-point basis with you.


 

 

Make a trip to the wedding venue with the videographer if possible!

Scouting of the wedding site is of real benefit to both you and the wedding video editing professionals you’ll be working with. No doubt you’ve put a lot of thought into how the venue you’ve selected will accentuate the key elements of your theme wedding. By scouting the venue with your wedding video editing professionals, you’ll be able to effectively communicate your ideas in an “on the scene” setting with your videographer.

And on the other side of the coin, your wedding video editing professionals will undoubtedly be able to make some helpful and concrete suggestions about how they can use the physical characteristics of the venue to help create and amplify the specific aspects of your theme wedding that appeal to you.

 

 

Negotiate all the extras in advance!

The work of your wedding video editing professionals isn’t limited to just shooting the wedding and crafting a video from the resulting footage. Most wedding videographers will offer a wide selection of other services, including, but not limited to, private websites where your guests can video of the events of the day, and the publication of DVDs you can distribute to your guests.

Take the time to sit down with your videographer and discuss exactly what they offer as a part of their services. You don’t want to assume that they’ll be providing services that they haven’t explicitly agreed to, and you may find that you can save money by eliminating services you don’t need.


 

Don’t be shy about negotiating on the price!

High-quality wedding videography can be quite expensive. And the demands of a theme wedding may increase what the going rate your videographer will charge. But remember, when they quote a price that they’re considering more than just one day’s work. A professional videographer will need to consider the costs of preparation and planning, moving all the equipment they need to the venue, hiring sufficient staff to operate the gear, and the time spent editing the video.

But that doesn’t mean you need to accept the first price quoted to you. Look at the line-item details that you’re being charged for and be ruthless about what you do and don’t need. Consider your bargaining leverage as well. If you’re going to hire a videographer, get shopping early. If you’re looking to hire your videographer as the wedding season approaches, you’ll find it a lot harder to get them to move on the price. But if you do your hiring in the winter or offseason, they may be more willing to move on price so they can fill up their calendar.
