If you want to relive your wedding in vivid detail decades from today it is worth spending on a wedding videographer who knows what he is doing. Below are a few important things you should look at before choosing marriage videography in Port Douglas.
Wedding videographer styles
Videographer shooting style should match what you imagine your wedding video will be. Generally, there are two main styles that are cinematic and documentary. Many times documentary is simply just the videographer recording without really thinking much about who they record, who they should emphasize and with no style in mind.
Cinematic videographers are often more artistic. However, many times the cinematic wedding video is under an hour-long because it has shot the most attractive and stylish moments with some good music. While no one style is right or wrong, it really all depends on what you want. Often you can settle for a mix of the cinematic and documentary style of videography. This means that the video is long enough so that you can see all the people you love but also contain the best part of your wedding.
Check their samples
It goes without saying that you should know about the quality of your wedding videographer you hire. Be sure to look at some wedding videos they have made for others. Watch a few minutes of each video samples to get a sense of style of the videographer.
Reflect the theme and style of the wedding
The video needs to be in sync with the feel and style of the wedding. Many videographers just press the 'record' and forget everything else. While many people can record video and capture expert-level images only a few can really select the right clips and then adjust them so that you get a feel for the theme and style of the wedding. It also requires a professional to insert the appropriate music to match the overall theme of the video.
