I didn't want to be that bride who hires her cousin with the camcorder to videotape her wedding and reception. I wanted a wedding video that people would want to watch later on—one that captured all the highlights, the funny moments, the family moments. So, I interviewed a dozen or more videographers. I watched video samples, I learned about audio visual equipment so that I could ask questions about what they used, and I called references and searched for reviews online. It was one of the most difficult choices I made about my wedding.
The long hard search was totally worth it though. I have an excellent wedding video, and when I watch it, I can really capture the emotion and excitement of that day all over again. If you're searching for a videographer, it's worth learning about the subject so that you can make the best choice.
