5. What’s Your Filming Style?

Videographers have various styles, from cinematic to documentary. It’s essential to ensure their style aligns with your vision for your wedding video. Our style is all about capturing the genuine moments, crafting a cinematic masterpiece that tells your story authentically.

Multiple camera angles can add depth and dimension to your video. Ask about their equipment and the number of cameras they’ll use to capture every angle. We use state-of-the-art equipment to ensure no moment is missed.

7. Will You Be the One Filming My Wedding?

Some videography companies have a team of videographers. Ensure you know who will be present on your wedding day and if you’re comfortable with them.

When you book with us, you can expect to have myself, James Klim, as well as one or more of my trusted team members there, capturing your story.

Understanding the timeline for receiving your video is important for managing your expectations. Some videographers deliver within a few weeks, while others may take a few months. Our turnaround time is designed to provide you with your memories as soon as possible, without compromising on quality.

11. Do You Work Well with Photographers and Other Vendors?

Videographers need to collaborate seamlessly with other vendors, especially photographers. Ask about their experience working alongside other professionals to ensure your day goes smoothly.

12. What’s Your Backup Plan?

Technical issues can arise, but a professional videographer should have a backup plan to ensure nothing is missed. Inquire about their contingency strategies. We’re meticulous in our planning, ensuring we’re prepared for any unexpected scenario.

Selecting the right videographer can make all the difference in preserving the beauty, emotions, and memories of your wedding day.
