One of the most common regrets brides have after the wedding? Not hiring a videographer. In addition to your wedding photos, a video is the one thing you will have for the rest of your life to help you relive the very special day — from the emotional vows to the hilarious toasts. To make sure that every moment of your celebration is captured correctly, we reached out to one of our favorite videographers, Sharrone and Chris Calafiore of Fiore Films, to share their best top tips for brides-to-be.
Weigh your options
While balancing a wedding budget is always tricky, its important to consider your options before you choose to settle for a studio you aren't happy with or drop videography all together. Work videography into your wedding budget from the start to avoid having to cut costs on any other important part of your big day.
Find a connection
It goes without saying that you should love your videographer's work; however, you should also get a sense of their personality, even if it's just through a quick phone conversation. It's hard to know how you are going to feel on your wedding day, and you want to be comfortable with the team that will be there with you through it all.
Set up a time to meet with your videographer to communicate some of the personal details of your big day. Whether it's the history behind a special gift, or an heirloom piece of jewelry you'll be wearing, these special moments make for great video shots that you'll want to remember. This information also helps the videographer decide what to include in the final edit!
After your wedding is over, re-living your wedding day via a motion picture set to beautiful music with your husband will be an unforgettable experience. Check out one of our favorite Fiore Films above to see what we mean!
