Of Fleeting Moments

Dec 01, 2019

One of the biggest days of your lives, and your families’ too. So many well-wishers, so much to undertake, so much to experience. And undoubtedly, as always in such happy occasions, such memorable moments just fly by. Indeed, for both the bride and groom, it is also not possible to be everywhere and be with everyone at once. As such, having a professional team to document this milestone in the form of a wedding film is imperative.

First and foremost, short list a few cinematographers whose work may have caught your eye. Then consider the following :

  • The budget you have set aside.
  • The price points of their packages.
  • Their availability on your wedding day.
  • How well you get along.

Some advice :

  • Good cinematographers get booked early, so do pay a deposit to secure them soonest possible.
  • If they do not already know each other, introduce your cinematographer to your photographer so that they can coordinate with each other on how to fully capture your wedding day.

A few more suggestions :

  • Instead of asking for a discount, perhaps see if they are able to value-add to the package you are keen on.
  • Prepare your cinematography team meal vouchers for them to have dinner prior to the commencement of your wedding banquet.
