How to Choose Your Wedding Videographer

 

What's The Deal

It’s the most wonderful occasion of your life, and your wedding video should perfectly encapsulate the spirit and magic of your big day. Preserving wonderful memories, it will become a family heirloom watched on anniversaries for years to come. But which wedding videographer do you trust with the creation of this crucial wedding element? With many wedding videographers in Essex area how do you decide which is right for you?

Research may begin online, or by word-of-mouth. A wedding video is a visual record. When conducting research make sure you see examples of the work of your potential wedding videographer. Trapdoor Films, reputable and professional film-makers, display a portfolio online so you can assess the style of their work. This ensures that it is in keeping with the theme and ambience that you are seeking to generate.

Watch Wedding Videos

Watch examples of wedding videos to check the shooting style, and lighting conditions; do they film both inside and outside? Are the transitions between scenes smooth and does the music help the wedding video bear emotional resonance for the viewer? Whilst you will be initially watching to see how it makes you feel, the technical aspects are highly important. These make the difference between watching a video made by a professional film maker to one shot on your Uncle’s smart phone! Many wedding videographers work individually, but with Trapdoor Films you have at least two people capturing the day. In doing so, this ensures that the best angles are captured and no detail missed.

Trapdoor Films’ wedding videos are of high-definition on ultra-wide cinematic widescreen. This gives the films a dramatic sense of occasion that this life-changing event merits. The care taken in post-production makes so much more than just a montage of clips with music tacked on; it creates a beautiful and authentic record of the day. You don’t have to worry about copyright on the background music that you choose for your wedding video; Trapdoor Films have all the licences that you would require for this.

It's About Communication

Entrusting such an important aspect of your wedding to a video production company is a big deal. Make sure that you have a connection with your cinematographer and that they are as passionate and dedicated to interpreting your vision and making an amazing film as you are. Your wedding videographer should keep dialogue open from the first enquiry, take on board your requirements, but also demonstrate their expertise by making suggestions and offering ideas. Whilst a rapport is needed, on the day they should be as unobtrusive as possible so as to not distract guests from you!

Planning a wedding can be expensive – achieving value for money will help you from going over budget. Trapdoor Films have packages to meet your requirements. For example, you may not want footage of you getting ready, but see the first dance as an important symbol of your union. You can select the package to suit. They also travel globally to capture weddings, so whether you are getting married in Essex where they are based, London or further afield, even abroad, you are guaranteed wedding videography of the highest quality from calibre film producers at value for money.
