PHOTOGRAPHY & VIDEOGRAPHY

PHOTOGRAPHY

  • A photographer should be booked as early as eight months to a year in advance.
  • Shop around, ask for references or ask friends and family who they used.
  • Ask about package prices and what is exactly included in a package.
  • Ask about extra costs: meal and transportation expenses, enlarge- ments, extra prints, etc.
  • Who will own the negatives? Who is responsible for lost proofs?
  • Most importantly, the photographer must be able to be a good listener and communicator.

VIDEOGRAPHY

  • All of us have seen home Successful videotaping requires practice and skill
  • Hiring a professional videographer ensures a high quality and memorable video
  • Professionals often use more than one camera, with microphones placed in strategic positions throughout the ceremony and reception venues
  • Interviews with parents, family and guests can make your video even more special
  • Videographers can also add many special effects and can dub and edit your entire day, personalizing the video to your wants and needs
  • Be sure to shop around – Compare quality and price before hiring a videographer
