Wedding Videography Tips|Erin & Aaron

As wedding videos continue to get more popular, it gets harder to feel like yours is different or special. We recognize this dilemma, and want to share a few wedding videography tips to help you find the right person to create your wedding video.  Of course, we’re heavily biased towards our Pure7 Studios wedding videographer, Alan. He’s award-winning and constantly finding ways to give each couple a video that’s just as special as their big day.

Tip #1 – Know your budget.

Like any aspect of a wedding, wedding videos cost money. Some cost a lot of money. If you know you want a wedding video, add it to the budget early. The reason for this? Many couples have to start cutting corners as the final details of their big day come together. Just like the dress or the cake, the cost of a wedding video has a wide range. Know what you’re willing and able to spend and stick to it.

Tip #2 – Don’t Shop Price First.

It sounds like this completely contradicts what we just told you, but hear me out. This is your one and only wedding video. You want the wedding videography to represent you and the vision you’re bringing to your big day. If you shop price first, you’ll lose out on meeting a variety of videographers. By viewing online portfolios first, you can figure out what you connect with (and what you don’t). Maybe, you’re the person that doesn’t feel creative at all-  and you want someone to show up, film, and create a wonderful wedding video. Or maybe, you have very specific moments you want captured. That is why we recommend deciding on what style of video you want first – and then shopping by price.

Tip #3 – Watch More Than Just Wedding Videos.

There’s a lot of wedding videographers out there who shoot more than weddings. Alan (here at Pure7) has filmed commercial videos, fashion shows, art festivals, wedding videos, music festivals, skateboarding videos, and even real estate videos. His passion and abilities push far beyond what one might see in a collection of his wedding videos. Seeing a videographer’s style and ability to create great videos across the board can be eye opening and give you that reassurance you’re going to be happy with the end result. A skilled film-maker knows how to exceed your expectations.

Tip #4 – Start Saving Now.

More often than not… you get what you pay for. Weddings get expensive quickly. There aren’t very many things you can take with you, but a wedding video is one of them. Even with as popular as they are today, people get to the end of their budget and then opt to stick with photography only. While that may not be a mistake for everyone, we hate to hear when a couple wishes they would’ve done a video with their pictures. If you start saving now, odds are better that you’ll get a wedding video and that you’ll be able to work with the videographer you want most.

Along with our tips, we’re excited to share Erin & Aaron’s Sandestin wedding video. It’s a stunning piece that we’re proud to have in our collection and is something  every bride-to-be needs to see. Coordinated by the talented Shelby Peaden of Shelby Peaden Events!
