why book a photographer and videographer form the same company
Photographer and videographer capture a unique angle of the wedding day. Having your wedding preserved in both photography and video becomes a necessity these days! I love photos for their ease of share and instant viewing. But I also love video for the ability to capture emotions and the real feel of the moment. Here is a short summary why it’s good to have your wedding captured in both photography and video and what are the traps to avoid.
1. CHOOSE A REPUTABLE COMPANY
Please make sure the photographer and videographer combo you are about to book is experienced! This goes especially for the video side. There are many photographers out there that recently added video o their offer. We are all for expanding, yay! But video is very technical, especially dealing with live sound recording. My advice would be: watch their previous content (especially ceremony) and ensure your team can produce the goods to the quality you expect! Remember, those moments cannot be repeated. A poor sound form the ceremony will ruin your video once and for all.
2. SAVE TIME ON THE DAY
Photographers and videographers are creatives. They have different styles and different work-flows. You might be lucky and book two separate professionals that work great together, but chances are they will have a completely different idea on how to capture your portraits or the bridal party photos. For example one likes the structured, posed look, while the other wants to capture action and movement. As a result, you will end-up doing everything twice, once for the photos and again for the video. Booking one team form the same company ensures the know each other’s work flow and feed of each other’s directions. This could mean cutting your portrait time in half. Big deal!
3. MAKE SURE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER AND VIDEOGRAPHER GET ALONG!
Again, you are booking artist and they come with personalities. It’s important to ensure they get along with each other. You don’t want any awkward vibes on the day! If you are booking professionals from different companies, ensure they like each other. We work well with other wedding service providers and we are very accommodating and friendly. But that’s not always the case on the day. Booking a photo/video team from the same company ensures happiness and no drama amongst your service providers! 4. SAVE! We love rolling out the full photography and video team, therefore we incentive our clients to book both. So ask us for discount when booking both photo and video! We want to do it all, because it gives us full control over the work flow. It avoids time being wasted and ensures the best experience for the clients. So yes, you can twist our arm and get w better deal while booking both photographer and videographer for your wedding!
5. ENSURE SMOOTH DELIVERY.
Those horror stories of brides waiting a year for their wedding photos or videos? They are real. We have a guarantee of six weeks delivery for photography and eight weeks delivery for video. Booking the same company for both allows you to minimize communication with another service provider and gives you time frame of expected delivery. We can even do a next day sneak peek of your ten best photos, so you can show the best images to the world the day after your wedding!
