First meeting with a wedding cameraman
It is important to meet a cameraman before confirming the order. This person will be with you throughout the wedding day. Therefore, it is very important that you establish personal contact with him and feel good.
Pay special attention to your dialogue, which questions the cameraman is interested in. If the extent of his interests is limited only by the length of the shooting and the exploration of the appropriate location, then it is most likely to risk that you will get a template variation. It may be appropriate to consider other candidates as well. However, if a cameraman has a positive effect on you, sign an cooperative agreement without worrying.
The key to a successful wedding video
The main guarantee of successful cooperation is the ability to lead an open dialogue. Share your cameraman with what you like best, tell what you like and what not, share your ideas about wedding film. In this way you will together create the concept of the first family film. Discuss your music preferences because the music in wedding video plays an important role. There is every detail in the stage of filming and postproduction on film quality.
Organizational and logistical issues
Think about logistics and the competent organization of the wedding day correctly. The physical presence of the wedding cameraman throughout the wedding should be considered in advance. Ask how many people are planned as part of his team and how many devices will be involved. Discuss with them and dress code.
Video and budget
And by no means can we omit the question of the budgetary problem. Creating a wedding video or a wedding video requires much more work, compared to photos and overhead will be much higher. If you plan to get quality video, be prepared to invest and be extremely honest about your budget limits.
