Wedding videography is one of the most overlooked services in the industry, but skipping video is also one of the biggest regrets couples have after the wedding.

There’s no doubt that the investment is worth it, but only if you find the right videographer! You’ll want someone who shares your vision, fits your style and is genuinely excited to capture your wedding day. 

As you interview videographers for your big day, it’s vital to ask the right questions! Here are five questions to help you land on the perfect match.

questions to ask your videographer

Why did you become a wedding videographer?

What better way to learn about a videographer than starting from the beginning? Understanding their background will reveal their passions and how much of themselves they invest in their craft. The best artists are the ones who love what they do!

What is your videography style?

It’s important to have every vendor on the same page with your style and flair, but especially your photo and video professionals. Whether you have a taste for vintage film or prefer a cinematic style, your wedding video should preserve your lifelong memories just how you want them. Don’t be scared to ask for a portfolio to confirm!

How many weddings have you shot before?

You don’t want your wedding to be a videographer’s first! Look for an experienced professional with many events under their belt. Not only will they offer higher-quality content, but they’ll also know how to work within a wedding-day timeline. Review portfolios to ensure they have plenty of experience!

What does your process look like?

Getting to know a videographer’s process will open the door to other questions like:

  • Do you allow for edits? 
  • What is your turnaround time for the final product? 
  • Can we help pick out the music?

Don’t sign a contract until you’ve confirmed all of the essential details!

Will you be the one shooting my wedding day?

In some cases—especially with larger production companies—there may be a team of videographers assigned to events. So make sure you get a chance to meet the person(s) who will shoot your wedding day to be certain you like them!

You should love and trust every person joining you on your wedding day — vendors included! With the right questions in your pocket, you’ll be sure to have all the right people in all the right places.
