Of course, it is every bride’s nightmare to pop in her wedding video and get nothing but blurred guests and muffled sound. But, relax! Finding a talented videographer is just like hiring any other wedding professional. Here are the basic questions to ask:
Can I see examples of your work? This is going to show you everything from their technical skills to their cinematic style. When you are viewing the video, make notes about things you like and things you don’t. How are the transitions? Do you enjoy the style of the edited product? Is the videographer capturing the scenes you would want to have?
How much will shooting effect the event? If your videographer is planning on having extra shooters, lots of equipment,…
As you have probably already found out, there are a lot of wedding photographers out there. How to pick? Here is our best advice to help you find the best photographer for your event:
Who’s in your local area? Before you fly someone out from London, make sure there isn’t an awesome photographer right in your own backyard.
What is your style? Do you know what type of photography you are looking for? Pinterest is actually pretty handy for this. Go through wedding pictures to get an idea of what you want your photos to feel like.
Check out websites. These days most photographers have a blog on their site, or at least a portfolio…
Chances are, your wedding reception you will feature a photo booth to entertain your guests. You already know all the reasons why a photo booth is a great choice, but often overlooked are the props that will appear in those photo booth pictures.
Why props are important
The purpose of the photo booth is to entertain, but also so that you can get more images of your guests while your photographer focuses their professional lens on the dance floor, the cake cutting, and other important shots. One person standing alone in a photo booth can be just plain awkward. You need to have another element in the picture to act as a seed of creativity.
Before our wedding, just about everyone I met told me same thing – your wedding day is going to absolutely zip by. And, dear readers, truer words have never been spoken. If you’re anything like me, your wedding day is the fastest day of your life; there is so much that goes on that you don’t see or only hear about later or, in my case, don’t remember (I was pretty sure I’d said my vows, but wouldn’t have bet the house on it).
Weddeos, a new video service, aims to remedy that. They send you five mini HD cameras that you then pass out to guests to get their unique perspective on your wedding day. Once it’s all…
When Christen and Mike came to Delack Media Group for help with their save the date, they only knew that they wanted something different. Within a couple of weeks, they had a romantic comedy trailer that outlined their relationship (I love when Mike arrives at the bar – classic!), starring the couple themselves. Talk about a fun, creative way to get guests excited for your Big Day!
PS – Be sure to watch until the end to see his proposal – such a romantic setting!
Is it just me or do wedding videos have a way of making you tear up? Every time I watch Michelle and Charles’ wedding video by IQ Videography, it gets me all misty-eyed. It’s all of the real emotion – the laughter! the tears! the love! – that’s packed into this one day that you can’t help but get swept up in it.
And, Michelle and Charles’ wedding day is absolutely lovely. Once Charles is allowed in the house (he has to pass the bridesmaids’ stringent tests, which include singing a rendition of “I Will Always Love You” in front of the whole family), they start their wedding celebrations with a traditional Vietnamese ceremony. Michelle looks stunning in her…
At first glance, this photo looks like any other poster-sized print of a very cute couple on their wedding day. But upon closer inspection…
Holy cow! Are those words that make up her face? Why, yes they are. Very clever, that Textographer, wouldn’t you agree? He and his group of classically-trained artists break down your photo and replace it with text of your choosing so it mimics the original.
And, what a great way to remember a special part of your day – your vows, all of the guests that attended your wedding, song lyrics from your first dance – in a completely unique way.
I guess in this case, a picture really would be worth a thousand words (sorry, just had to do it!).
