How to Hire a Video Professional For Your Wedding


Obtain glowing recommendations from friends, family and prospective videographers themselves.
Plan to interview three to five video professionals.
Ask to see a demo tape/dvd of their work to ascertain the quality of their shooting and editing skills.
Check their credentials. Who will be doing the actual taping? How many years have they worked in the business? Do they know details about lighting?
Inquire about their equipment, look for a video pro who uses an HD or digital cameras, that combines professional controls with lower light capabilities.
Discuss technical details that you would like added to the video, such as computer-generated animation. Ask to see examples of what the videographer has to offer.
Talk to the videographers about the types of shots you would like to include, such as reactions of guests and certain camera angles. Do they have the experience to catch all the right shots?
Ask yourself if you like the prospective videographer as a person. Remember, he or she will be interviewing your loved ones and shadowing you throughout the day.
The videographer should draw up a comprehensive contract that includes a description of the coverage location; the date and times of production; the names the specific individuals who will be doing the taping; a technical description of what will be done, such as multi-camera use and editing; how much you will pay and when; responsibility for the materials if lost or destroyed; the approximate finished length; and the final completion date.Make sure you are not fooled by packages that contain the words "In Camera Editing", that is not edited with a computer. All professional videographers do not do that, it makes for cheaper pricing but has no quality.Contact us for more tips on how to hire a professional videographer, and check out our footage on our web site.

Wedding Candy Stations

Wedding Candy Stations

You can have fun hunting down unique clear glass vases to create your favorite wedding candy station. Your guests will love it and it's fun. You can find candy in almost any shape and size in your wedding colors on the Internet.

Keep in mind that you will need to order boxes, small bags or to go cartons for each guest. You will need to order enough candy to fill the collection of jars you find at places like Old Time Pottery, Garage Sales, Michael's. Put it together a couple of weeks before the wedding so that if you need a bit more candy you will have time to order.

You want to have plenty of small serving spoons or scoops next to each jar. Your consultant, caterer or reception location may offer candy stations as part of your wedding package.

You will need three to four servings per-person. Everybody has a sweet tooth when it comes to a wedding. You may want a candy station in place of individual favors. Most of the time it is in addition to the favors at each place setting.

Have fun.
