Ask Around

Chances are you are also a guest during their wedding so maybe you would have seen the SDE or Same Day Edit video so you can already be a judge of whether your friends’ wedding videographer is worth considering as your own wedding videographer.

Look at a Portfolio

When you go to a wedding videographer website in London, they would have samples of the wedding videos that they already covered uploaded on their website. Go through these videos and try to see if you like their style.

Don’t take a gamble by hiring a wedding videographer with no finished or ready video for you to view.

Look at Testimonials

Aside from the quality of the videos that a Wedding Video company produces, you also have to take time and research on their work ethics. Try to research on customer testimonials, even if you get the best videographer but if they act like rock stars on your wedding day then might as well not get them.

You have to take a look at a Wedding Videographer’s professionalism, are they punctual? Do they have a nice disposition? Remember that these guys will be sticking cameras to your face on your wedding day and they would probably be interacting with you so you would definitely want to get a pleasant Wedding Video team to cover your wedding.

Set A Meeting

After you have decided on a wedding video team that you will be hiring for your wedding day, you have to make sure that you set a meeting with the videographers. This would be the best way to see if you really ‘like’ the video team.

It is also a good way to build initial rapport with them so that on your wedding day, you are already comfortable with having them around.
