Hiring a wedding videographer in Sydney is easy. But finding the best agency to suit your requirements and ensuring that they beautifully, creatively and deeply reflect the love between you and your partner is difficult. That’s why, make sure that you follow these tips to capture the best moments through wedding videographer.
Hire a videographer
Having a wedding videographer and hiring a professional wedding videographer are two different things. While anybody can shoot videos with their smartphones or digital camera, they wouldn’t be as expressive as the ones that a professional, with knowledge of light, depth, decorations, settings and innovation can shoot. That’s why, the first step to shooting a wedding video in Sydney or anywhere else is to hire a professional for the job.
Don’t ask them shoot too much footage
Most couples erroneously believe that shooting a lot of footage would lead to a better wedding video. But that’s just wrong. Not only will it tire out the videographer, it will also hamper their creativity. So, make sure that you don’t ask them to shoot too much footage. Just inform them about the important events you would like to capture before/during/after the ceremony and provide them the liberty to shoot the rest in their own ways.
Look for ones with light equipment
Just have a lot of gears, tons of equipment and latest gadgets won’t transform a videographer into an excellent wedding videographer in Sydney. So, make sure that before hiring one, you look for their gears and equipment. Research if these items are light and the lenses can be switched easily, instead of a tripod, ask the videographer to carry a monopod, so that they can move swiftly and switch from one shot to another, one angle to the next.
How to get emotions?
Wedding videography should be a narration, a depiction of the feelings that the couple, their families and their relatives experience before, during or after the wedding. That’s why you should focus on hiring a videographer who can capture emotions. To ensure that, ask prospective agencies to provide you with samples of their work. Look for the emotions in these videos. For instance, smiles, tears and laughter, which doesn’t look forced but rather, seems candid. While checking those samples, you will realize whether the reactions are toned down (because the camera was in the face) or if they were genuine (because the videographer was quick to shoot didn’t seem to intrude).
So, use these simple steps to capture the best videos on your wedding with a good wedding videographer in Sydney.
