As soon as you’ve set your wedding date and hired your venue, hire your wedding videographer! If our clients want a cinematic wedding film that captures their love story and special day, it is the best recommendation we can give them.
What Are the Benefits of Hiring a Wedding Videographer?
Your wedding is much more than a collection of photographs. Emotional moments, softly spoken words, and a loving hug are all important. These priceless scenes can’t be printed on paper; they need to be seen on video to unfold. Your wedding film will include loving remarks, laughing, and happy tears from your loved ones. There will be somber vows as well as joyous smiles. You’ll want to watch your wedding film again and over to remember how special that moment was and to relive it with your spouse, friends, and family.
When Is It Time to Hire a Wedding Videographer?
You must book your wedding cinematographer after you have set your wedding date and picked your wedding venue. Many professional videographers are booked up to two years in advance, and their capacity to take on further filming tasks is limited. As expert videographers, we recommend that our customers contract their crew 9 months ahead of time. They should do it at least six months prior to the wedding day. You should try to schedule your videographer and photographer at the same time so that they can get to know each other’s styles. This will ensure that your wedding photography and videography run as smoothly as possible.
We’ve created some useful recommendations to assist you in deciding when to book your wedding photographer.

This will ensure that your wedding picture shoot and videography go as smoothly as possible. We’ve put up some tips to assist you determine when to book your wedding photographer.
What is the date of your wedding?
The amount of time you should hire your videographer depends on the date of your wedding. Because weddings in the spring and fall are in high demand, filming teams will be scheduled solid on weekends. If you want to get married during peak wedding season, you should notify your wedding videographer at least nine months ahead of time.
Weddings on weekdays face less competition than those on weekends. You might be able to find a skilled videographer 6 months in advance if your wedding is on a Tuesday afternoon. Mid-winter weddings are also less common, and you can probably engage a videographer just a few months ahead of time. However, keep in mind that a filmographer’s main job is to edit the film and make a cinematic version after the wedding. Even if your wedding is on a weekday, your videographer may be reluctant to take you on board if they have a lot of wedding films to edit.
What Kind of Wedding Film Are You Looking For?
If you wish to make a short cinematic film without a documentary film, it will take less time than making a long highlight video with a documentary film.
In this situation, the camera crew will be at the wedding for less hours and will have less post-production work to undertake. Even so, don’t wait until the last minute to engage your videographer; it will almost likely be too late.
What percentage of your wedding do you want filmed?
Many couples want to capture every detail and moment of their wedding day, including the bride getting ready, the groom joking with his buddies, the arrival of the guests, the ceremony, the reception, and the after-party. Some couples even request that the crew attend the rehearsal dinner. Other couples want to include only the most significant aspects of the wedding, such as the ceremony and reception.
Determine how much of your wedding you want shot and book your videographer accordingly. If you only have a limited budget, we recommend that you hire a videographer. Instead, look for a package that includes a high-quality film, even if only for the wedding ceremony. If you choose a more limited package, you can book up to 6 months in advance, but we strongly advise you not to wait any longer.
