The Value of Professional Video
When you choose to invest in a professional videographer who is a member of WEVA International, you're honoring the importance of your wedding day. Only a trained and experienced wedding videographer is prepared to capture the details of your special day, from the rush of preparations at the beginning of the day, through the emotional moments of the ceremony, and the excitement of the reception. Afterwards, creative editing will polish your tape artistically and professionally to produce a video (or DVD) that not only documents your day, but is fun and entertaining to watch again and again!
Because your choice of videographers is so vital to the memories you will have after your wedding day ends, WEVA International along with top bridal consultants, advises brides to get an early start in the process of selecting their videographer, and to shop based on quality. Placing videography at the top of your priority list also ensures the best chance of securing your first choice, as todays videographers are booked far in advance.
Just like professional photography, pricing for professional videography varies widely, even within the same geographic region. Talent, technology, and time are three key factors which will affect the pricing of your video.
For example, you may find professional videographers in your area using cameras and editing systems that are similar. But it will be their skills, experience, style, and techniques in both shooting and editing that will immediately capture your attention and be the distinguishing differences you will notice in their work. This is why it is virtually impossible to shop by price alone when selecting your videographer. Professional wedding videography is an artistic, not a mechanical medium. Videographers shoot and edit video differently.
Video styles and quality can vary tremendously even within the same community. In order to make an informed decision about the distinguishing differences, and be sure that your videographer can match your preferences, it is best to see actual samples of work produced by the videographer who will be recording your event. When you stop by to see samples, you will also have an ideal opportunity to discuss your wedding details and style preferences before making your final decision.
