how to hire a wedding filmmaker
Let's face it, wedding planning can be OVERWHELMING, I'm not telling you something you don't already know! So many decisions, so many vendors, so much invested, all for one single day out of your life.
One of the vendors you may be looking for is a Wedding Filmmaker, notice I said filmmaker and not videographer. I do that on purpose, because I believe that the final product that I deliver to my clients is not just a mere video, but a one of a kind film.
Choosing the right person to capture your wedding is a daunting task. You place a lot of trust in their ability to show up, to work with you and your wedding party, not to mention your family. Your wedding day is a whirlwind of action and no matter how well you "think" you're going to remember, trust me you'll only remember fragments of what you experienced.
Photographs will always have a place, they are highly important, but they can only portray so much. This is were the wedding film comes in! The wedding film can do what no photograph can, it can transport you back to that exact moment in time. You will feel the emotion, the nerves, the happiness all over again, every single time you watch it.
I'm not saying that you need to hire me as your filmmaker (although I hope you do :), but don't take this aspect of your wedding planning lightly. You may be saying, but Steve, "I don't know what to ask, or what to look for", "how do I know what this person can do".
Fear not, I have you covered there, I have created a short guide to Hire a Wedding Filmmaker. (You can download a copy by clicking the photo on this post) It goes over the basic things you need to consider, and what a quality filmmaker will provide. Now obviously since I wrote the guide, everything I talk about I will deliver.
Whatever you decide, whomever you end up hiring, I hope the guide is of some help to your decision making process. If you think someone else could benefit, please share this post. I wish you the best of luck with your wedding and I hope that we can talk about how I can capture your special day in a one of a kind wedding film just for the both of you!
