3 Tips for a Stellar Wedding Video

Wedding videos are more popular than ever and for good reason! Why just reflect on photos, beautiful as they may be, when you can relive your happy day through video? Your wedding day is one of the happiest and most beautiful days of your life, but it sure does fly by. Capturing the day through video will allow you to get more out of your big day, and reflect on it for years to come.

Remember watching your parents VHS wedding video, all grainy and muted? Video technology has come a long way, and so have wedding videos. Your wedding video should tell a story, and we know just the way to help you do that. Check out our favorite tips for making the best wedding video possible below.

1. Define Your Style

What is your style? If you’ve never produced a video before, you may not know (and that’s totally okay)! It’s important to work with someone who has the same aesthetic as you, and it may need to match the theme of your wedding. For example, an upscale, chic wedding will not necessarily have the same look as a rustic wedding. Luckily, there are a ton of examples you can reference on the internet, so get searching! Check out some of our videos while you’re at it.

Once you select your favorite style, talk with your videographer about how you can make it happen. Be sure to be open and communicative for the best results possible. If you’re thinking of something in particular, let them know.

2. Plan Your Shots

Everyone values different moments of the wedding day. Some brides really love to capture the before-the-ceremony moments, and some love to relive the reception. What is important to you? Sit down with your groom-to-be and make a list of all of the moments you’re hoping to focus on. This will help you strategize the flow of the video with your wedding videographer.

Keep in mind, the day will hold some moments that will be special even though you had never thought about them before. Let your videographer know that they have the freedom to capture these beautiful moments.

3. Know Your Venue

Every wedding venue comes with different challenges when it comes to videography. In order to get the shots just right, be sure to let your videographer know where your venue is right away. Little details like which rooms you’ll be in and when will be essential to capturing the right lighting and angles. Sit down and chat about the schedule of events and locations for the day to get everything just right.
