From time to time wedding couples ask me for my recommendations for videographers. Videographers, just as with photographers, vary greatly in experience, expertise, personality and delivery of product. From my point of view as a photographer, I like to work alongside people I trust and like and who give their couples first class films.
Having your wedding filmed is a wonderful idea, the day goes by so fast and there are many parts of the proceedings that the couple may miss. A videographer can be a valuable addition to your wedding but do make sure you book a professional.
You may see companies offering to film your wedding for very cheap prices – chances are they may not have very good camera’s or sound equipment or worse still be inexperienced and not have a clue as to what do. A bad videographer can impact on your pictures if they get in the way of shots etc.
Photographers and videographers should work together to get the very best results for the couple, I have worked with Paul and Carol from Cut Above Productions on many occasions and we make a great team, not only are their films of excellent quality but they are friendly, professional and do not get in the way of any photographic shots.
They film the ceremony and speeches in full (generally with two camera’s) and then for the rest of the day work very discreetly in the background capturing natural footage and manage to include all of the key moments of the day which is edited to music of your choice. Finalists in the Kent Wedding Awards, The Wedding Industry Awards and members of The Institute of Videography they are well qualified and very experienced.
They offer free consultations and can be contacted on 01892 862489 or visit Cut Above Productions
