Last post I began explaining the way to go about looking for your wedding videographer and would like to add some more to that.
3. Equipment: Does your videographer have the equipment to do the job right? This is something you may be able to tell by watching some video or by simply asking. A professional wedding video should be shot with a professional camera. This means not one of those handy little point and shoot models you can find at any super store also no cameras without 3 chip technology. The 3 chip camera’s get much better contrast and color than do older 1 chip cameras. Now though the newest cameras have gone back to 1 chip cmos technology which is as good or better than the 3chip. Also a good thing to ask about is wether the video will include a wireless microphone placed either on the groom or the pastor. A good wireless microphone is crucial to picking up the ministers sermon and the bride and grooms wedding vows. Another thing you can ask about is what type of tripod will the videographer be placing his cameras on or will they be using a tripod at all? If not I would say that is a definite warning sign anyone attempting to shoot a wedding without a tripod is amature. Also all tripods are not created equal a cheap one will leave you with jerky out of level shots while a nice fluid head tripod or two when used correctly will leave you with nice steady pans and tilts which will make your video have more movie quality.
