Questions for your Videographer

When considering a videographer, select the package that highlights the events that are most important to you. In order to ensure your potential videographer is a good fit, ask these few vital questions in your first meeting.

Questions To Ask Your Videographer

  • What type of lighting will you use?
  • How will you be dressed at the wedding? (You may want to asking your videographer to dress appropriately for a wedding if he or she is considering something else.)
  • Do you have sample videos I can see?
  • How long have you been in business?
  • What packages do you offer?
  • Do you use Professional Quality equipment, accessories and supplies?
  • How many cameras do you use? (This is important as some people like to have two cameras operating at once while others feel it is not necessary and intrusive.)
  • Do you have back-up equipment that is comparable in quality to the original?
  • Do you use wireless microphones?
  • Do you offer Non-Linear Digital Editing?
  • Do you copy-protect or scramble the videotape?
  • What are your guarantees and liabilities?
  • Do you have a written contract?
  • Are you unobtrusive?
  • Will the shoot interfere with the proceedings in any way?
  • How much do you charge for additional hours beyond the agreed contract?
  • Do you work with the photographer to ensure mutual cooperation?
  • How many hours are you willing to work throughout the day?
  • Will you go to a location (like the beach or a park) without additional charge?
  • How much are additional copies of the wedding dvds?
  • Do you have references that I can call?
