Frequently Asked Questions

Introduction

Wedding day memories may fade over the years, but a wedding video preserves those precious moments for a lifetime. Hiring a wedding videographer is a wise investment that will allow the happy couple to relive their special day year after year. A wedding video is also a great way to share the day with family members and friends that couldn't make it. And with today's technology, videos can be shared and made widely available via social media, YouTube, and other online platforms.

From traditional weddings to vow renewals, hiring a wedding videographer ensures those special memories are expertly captured and edited and live on indefinitely.

What does a wedding videographer do?

The primary role of a wedding videographer is to capture your wedding day on video and produce a film that can be rewatched and shared with others easily. They provide all equipment, including cameras, lighting, and audio, and edit the captured video to create a story complete with music, speeches, and candid moments.

Do I need a videographer for my wedding?

There will always be parts of the day that are missed by the happy couple. From guests arriving and mingling to the confetti throw and cake cutting ceremony, the wedding video captures all of these moments perfectly. If you don't want to miss a single moment of your wedding, hiring a wedding videographer can be a wise choice.

What is included in wedding videography?

Most wedding videographers offer a range of packages to suit different budgets. Basic packages typically include one videographer and equipment, a short edited video, recordings of guests congratulating the couple, and a choice of music. Luxury and bespoke packages allow for extras and customization.

How many videographers do I need for a wedding?

The number of videographers required for a wedding will largely depend on the size of the wedding and the budget. For small weddings, one videographer should be sufficient. For larger weddings, a team of videographers will be able to cover more ground and ensure that every moment is captured.

How long should a wedding video be?

The average length for a wedding video is three to five minutes for a wedding highlights video or short movie or 30 minutes to an hour or more for a cinematic or documentary-style film.

What should I look for in a wedding videographer?

Experience is one of the most important requirements when selecting a videographer. They also need to have their own video, audio, and editing equipment and suitable insurance and provide a selection of packages to suit different requirements and budgets. Reviews can also steer you in the right direction.

How much does a wedding videographer cost?

While all videographers will charge varying prices, the average cost of a wedding videographer is around $1,800, with most couples spending between $1,000 and $2,500. The price will depend on a number of factors, including the length and type of video and the number of videographers required on the day.

How much is too much for wedding videography?

Even if you choose the most luxurious videography package available, you should still make sure you are getting good value for money. Always ask for a base package cost and for any additional items such as extra DVDs to be itemized separately so you can see exactly what you are paying for.

Why are wedding videographers so expensive?

One of the main reasons why wedding videographers are so expensive is because of the time and expertise it takes to capture the footage and plan and edit the video. Wedding videographers also need to pay for travel costs, insurance, equipment upkeep, and software to run their business.

How do you price a videographer?

The cost of a wedding videographer usually includes video coverage for the entire day, from the morning of the wedding through to the evening reception. The price also includes a film of the edited highlights in whichever format you prefer. You should always ask the videographer to provide a breakdown of costs.

Do wedding photographers do videos?

Some wedding photographers also specialize in videography. However, if you want your wedding to be captured on both photo and video, it might be best to hire separate services or a company that can offer both a photographer and videographer. Using a company that offers both services can often be cheaper than using separate companies.

How much does a wedding photographer and videographer cost?

The average cost of a videographer is around $1,800. To hire a wedding photographer, you should expect to pay an average of $2,000. All costs will be dependent on the individual cost structure of the company. Savings can sometimes be made if you hire a photographer and videographer from the same company.

How long does it take to get your wedding video back?

The time it takes for raw footage to be edited into the final wedding video depends on a number of factors, including the volume of work the videographer has, their lifestyle and schedule, and whether you have requested any specialist editing services. Most wedding videos are ready within 2-3 weeks.

How many hours does a videographer work?

A single wedding video shoot can take up to 8 hours. Then, there is the editing work to take into account, which will depend on the backlog of videos that the videographer has. It is not unusual for videographers to work 40 hours a week in peak wedding season.

How do I send a wedding video to a client?

Once the wedding video has been finalized, it can be distributed to clients in a number of different ways. From USB stick and DVD or Blu-ray formats to delivering the video via an online storage service such as Dropbox, videographers have many mediums to choose from when it comes to sending videos to clients.

How do I become a wedding videographer?

To become a wedding videographer, you need more than just good video and audio equipment, although that is essential. You'll also need vision and skill to stand out from the crowd. You'll also need to master video editing software so that you can turn your raw footage into a masterpiece for your clients.

How much do wedding videographers make?

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, videographers can make between $26,560 and $110,790 per year, depending on their experience and position in the market. Videographers working full-time hours may also be entitled to medical insurance, paid time off, and retirement savings.

How long does it take to become a videographer?

Anybody can advertise their services as a videographer overnight if they have the right equipment. However, to get a steady stream of bookings and build your reputation, you need a portfolio of previous work, positive testimonials, and experience. It could take months and even years to get to the required standard.
