When planning your wedding you want to get it right, so when hiring a videographer here are a few tips that should hopefully help the process go smoothly. Different companies offer different packages, although these are some of the most common packages you’ll find:
Trailer/Teaser Film (30sec-2min) – Similar to movie or video game trailers, this is typically a brief highlight of the videographer’s favorite moments.
Highlight Film (3-10 Min) – Most couples get this as the final product. How the story is told varies from company to company, but that is the beauty of different videographers. Generally, this highlight covers the entire day from makeup to reception.
Short Film (10-20 Min) – Usually short films take a more nonlinear form. This style allows us to go a bit more in-depth when telling your story.
Same Day Edit (3-5 Min) – Some videographer teams offer same day edits. This allows the couple to play an edit at their wedding reception to guests that may not have be able to go to the wedding. This is particularly popular with small, private weddings, that have larger receptions.
Full Length Feature (30-90min) – If you are interested in truly encasing the emotions of your day, the full-length documentary allows that to happen. Due to the length, this option enables us to tell in-depth stories about your wedding that may be otherwise forgotten. It is truly a movie for your wedding.
Add On/Extras – Most videographers offer options to receive extra footage, re-edit, trailer/teaser film, hard copies sent to in-laws, and many other extras. This vary from videographer to the next, although most are willing to build their packages to fit you.
