Things to consider when hiring a team to film your wedding
Some of the first things newly engaged brides do is go dress shopping, reserve a venue, and hire a team to film their wedding. Chances are, this is the first time any of them have hired a film crew. It can be an intimidating and overwhelming experience, filled with explanations of packages, prices, contracts and portfolios. In an effort to give you a few pieces of advice, we have put together a short list of things to consider when selecting your wedding film team.
1) Don’t allow price to be the only determinant.
When shopping for a wedding film team price is something you should never skimp on. Obviously work within your budget but don’t be persuaded by deals that seem too good to be true. Sometimes the reason a film crew is priced at $500 is because they’re only worth that much. There’s a good chance that you might have some guy show up at your wedding with a camera and has no idea what he’s doing. If you spend time and energy planning your wedding, you’re going to want a film that reflects who you are and the work you’ve put into every tiny detail for your big day!
2) Hire someone who you are compatible with.
It seems like that’s something that really shouldn’t matter. It’s their talent that’s most important, right? Well, partially, yes. But if you’re laid back would you want someone who’s going to force you out of your comfort zone and make you feel awkward all day? You have to find someone you get along with and feel truly comfortable with.
3) Hire someone who LOVES what they do.
You have to hire someone who LOVES what they do and wants YOU to love what THEY do. You want someone who’s not burnt out on doing weddings. You want someone who is doing this because it’s their passion and they aren’t just trying to pay their bills. We attribute our success and quality to this very simple fact. We genuinely LOVE what we do and our work shows it.
4) Hire someone you can trust.
Trust as in any relationship is key. You hire a team like us because we are the professional. You trust their opinions and ideas and allow them to take some creative license knowing that at the end they will give you a film you will want to watch over and over. As Ray Roman would say, “by hiring us you have the piece of mind of getting a true professional who is going to make your wedding film an unforgettable heirloom for you, your family and friends.”
