Most newly engaged people are inexperienced regarding their wedding requirements. Since the wedding cinematography has a great role to play in the wedding and many years to come, it must be executed properly for creating a long lasting memory of the wedding.
Choosing the most suitable style
A reputed cinematographer has their own unique and personalized style of shooting. So when you watch their portfolio, look for the work that really moves you. Often it happens that they are trying to showcase their most artistically crafted piece of work and it is completely different from the one you are going to receive. So choose any random work from their archive and ask them to show it. Choose them for your special day if you are really pleased with their working style.
The difference between a good piece of work and a great one doesn’t refer to using the best and expensive video shooting gadgets. An experienced cinematographer can make the difference visible with their patience and commitment to their job. They would leave no stone unturned in order to produce an outstanding video of their newly engaged clients.
Communicating your ideas to the videographer
Well before the wedding day, the couple should sit with their chosen cinematographer in order to let him know what they want. Whether they want some particular precious moments to be captured, or whether there will be some surprising event in the wedding- everything must be confined to the cinematographer in order to let him do his job more efficiently.
For instance, if the bride is wearing her grandmother’s wedding earrings or the groom is wearing his great grandfather’s timepiece, a great cinematography would capture it all.
He should also be told of any restrictions where photography is forbidden. This would allow him to be equipped with the proper gadgets such a zoom lens that can capture the bride and groom from far away without the need to enter the area where videography isn’t allowed. Anything missed, would be lost forever, so communicating with the responsible cinematographer is the first task of any couple.
One may also ask to include the videos of the couples getting ready for their grand day. Most couples tend to miss this part as they think this is not as significant to add elegance in the wedding cinematography but this is not quite true. When you grow old and look back at those fond videos you will be able to feel the excitement, enthusiasm and eagerness building up once again. And after many years, perhaps even at the wedding of your grandchildren, these videos would make you feel that it happened only a while back.
