|Q||We're considering booking a videographer for our wedding, but we're not sure what to look for. Do you have any tips you can share?|
|A||David Startin says: There are a huge number of videographers out there, all offering different styles and options. Firstly, I'd suggest you look at the deliverables and decide whether you'd like a full feature-length film that's around one to two hours long or something a little shorter such as 10 to 20 minutes. This will help narrow down the number of videographers you're considering, as not all offer both options. Then it comes down to the style you're after. Do you want a more candid documentary-style film or something a little more staged and up-market? Many filmmakers out there create amazing cinematic-style pieces, pushing the creative side of what a wedding film could be.
Music and sound design are so impactful in film, so consider whether the videographer has a particular style and whether that fits your tastes. I use a lot of acoustic and country-style, which works very well.

|Q||Our big day is fast approaching, and we're thinking of booking a videographer, but we're not sure what to look for. Do you have any tips?|
|A||Justina Rudé says: When looking for a supplier, the most important thing to check is their style of videography. Try to look and ask yourself, do they portray each couple or their specific filming/editing style and how do they reveal wedding stories? Next, look at what their filming style is like. Is there a moving or static camera that shows natural colours or has a specific colour pallet like a filter been used on their films?
Check if the company includes sound bites from people or sound effects. For example, church bells, laughter, applause or waves on the beach? It's best to compare a few different styles and see which one you like the most.
It's also helpful to ask newlyweds how they felt on their wedding day with their videographer and if they liked the final result.
