7 Things to Tell Your Wedding Videographer

Your wedding day is one of the most special days of your life. Wedding videographers have a lot of pressure to capture every key moment of that big day. In order for them to do their job well, it’s up to the bride and groom to share some key pieces of information with them. Here are a few things you should be sure to provide or discuss with your videographer before the wedding day arrives.

 

Vendor Information

Your wedding videographer will have to coordinate with our wedding vendors, especially the photographer (if you’re not using the same company), DJ, venue, and day of coordinator. It’s a good idea to give your videographer a list of names and phone numbers in case they need them should any issues arise.

 

Song Choice

Picking songs with your wedding video doesn’t have to happen before the big day, but if there are any particular songs you and your spouse-to-be are set on including be sure to let your videographer know ahead of time. That way they can shoot with those songs in mind or begin the process of getting the rights for them.

 

Face Sheet

Wedding videographers try hard to include everyone important in the wedding video. However, since they don’t know these people sometimes slip-ups happen. Make sure all of the key people make it into your wedding video by providing your videographer with a face sheet. That will show them who everyone is and how they’re related to the couple!

 

Point Person

There are a lot of moving parts when it comes to taking wedding photos or shooting a wedding video. It’s recommended to have a point person on the day. Someone that is close to the bride and groom and that knows everyone but not directly involved. They can help gather every one needed for specific shots without the videographer having to yell or stress out the bride and groom.

 

Day of Schedule

A schedule is key to having a smooth wedding. Everything should roughly be scheduled from when the bride is getting ready to when the ceremony kicks off. Be sure to share the day-of schedule with your videographer so that they know where and when to be placed.

 

Special Surprises

A lot of couples like to add extra touches to their weddings. Whether it’s the bride surprising the groom with a new watch or the newlyweds setting off fireworks at the end of the night. If there are any special surprises you have planned be sure to let your wedding videographer know so that they can capture it!

 

Extra Considerations

Your videographer wants everyone to feel happy and included on your special day. Let them know if there are any special considerations such as someone injured or pregnant. Also, if there are any family dynamics they need to know about such as divorced parents. That way they can navigate the situation without making anyone upset.
