Throughout the years, as in any segment of the wedding industry, the creation of the wedding video has evolved in a number of ways. Some of these include the following :

  • Professionals who are more discreet during the filming process where they try to blend into the crowd as much as and where possible.
  • A final product that is more succinct and concise, re-telling the story of the wedding day without having to sit through hours of footage.
  • Modern equipment that allows the wedding professionals to be more innovative and exercise their creativity more effectively.

A few tips :

  • Discuss budgets and deliverables in terms of coverage.
  • Offer a comprehensive itinerary and schedule of events for the entire day.
  • Have the video team coordinate with your photography team as well as your wedding planner.
  • Determine the composition of the team and make arrangements to provide them with meals throughout the day.
