Planning a wedding can be overwhelming and tedious; yet the day itself will fly right by. That’s why it’s important for brides and grooms-to-be, to pay careful attention to capturing every moment and perfectly documenting their special day. What many often don’t realize until it’s too late, is that the videography can make or break how they recall these memories for years to come.
Dan Creviston of George Street Photo and Video has helped thousands of couples navigate this process and can shed light on the critical concepts brides and grooms must consider. “With technology changing constantly and countless options to explore, it’s crucial that they know what questions to ask, in order to make informed decisions, avoid the pitfalls and perfect their videography. They only get one chance to get it right,” he explains.
To ensure flawless videos that capture every detail, George Street Photo & Video spotlights the top 5 pitfalls to avoid when selecting a videography package:
1. Not Using Multiple Cameras – Too few videographers actually use dual cameras. By doing so, the videographer can capture multiple perspectives simultaneously and better tell the story. For example, they can capture both the bride walking down the aisle AND the groom’s reaction at the same time. Inside Tip: Many videographers cut corners by only having one HD camera rather than two. Be sure BOTH cameras are HD otherwise the clarity and quality will be inconsistent!
2. Not Going High Definition – Odds are that if you don’t own a large flat screen television you soon will. By going HD, couples ensure their videos are the absolute best quality and avoid limited clarity and pixilation. This option also provides more channels for capturing top quality audio, the best sound mix and retouching is also an option! In addition HD provides widescreen video imaging, and eliminates the appearance of black bars with standard definition view. Inside Tip: There should be no extra charge for HD, so avoid companies that do.
3. Not Understanding High Definition Technology – Making sure that you are truly getting the highest quality HD shooting sounds simple, but can get quite confusing if you don’t know the particulars. For the highest quality and clarity, you must have HD footage prior to uploading into an HD format. For example – you must shoot in HD, then burn onto a blu-ray disc. Inside Tip: Some videographers shoot in standard definition and burn onto a blu-ray disc – this is not truly HD! Make sure to know the difference so you aren’t tricked.
4. Not Requesting Multiple DVD Formats – It’s only a matter of time until you have a blu-ray player, so get your wedding video on an HD blu-ray disc as well as a standard definition DVD. This is important to enable your video to maintain top quality and clarity for the future! Inside Tip: There should be no additional charge to obtain copies in both formats.
5. Not Chatting With Your Videographer A Week In Advance – It’s important to discuss all details with your videographer before the wedding day, so check in one week prior so that instructions are fresh. Discuss all your expectations and if you have specific requests, express them clearly. This is especially important for locations as churches, synagogues, mosques and chapels may have specific areas that cannot be filmed. You don’t want any unwelcome surprises!
