Having a hard time finding the right Videographer and Photographer for your big day? Don’t sweat it. Just follow these steps and you’re Visual Media will be authentic and most of all, on point! 😉
Before you look for artists, decide on your style. Which one of these jumps out at you?
- Documentary: Instead of posed photos and video, these are more candid and spontaneous. With this style you’ll very rarely see people staring at the camera- the photos capture the moments exactly as they happen, and together they tell a story.
- Portraiture: If you prefer classic portraits then this is the style for you. That’s not to say there’s no room for creativity in this category. An good example of this would be a couple sitting on a lounge chair at their extravagant reception venue. Usually these photos are very dramatic (think magazine cover).
Now you can start your search by looking at reviews. Review potential vid/photographer’s websites and blogs to check out content from other events they’ve shot. This will give you an idea of their style. Also, check out their social media profiles. Is the feedback from clients positive? How does the artist respond to comments?
And last, but absolutely not least, make sure you budget for these special artists. Brilliant photos and video cost a lot, but they last a lifetime, so it’s definitely an investment worth making. Memories are priceless and high quality makes all the difference.
