Shopping For A Wedding Videographer

Here are a few things you should consider when shopping for a wedding videographer to make  sure your entire experience  with the finished production is as good as it can be.  Over the past 20years Drangan Video has been lucky to have worked with so many amazing  couples in Kilkenny, Tipperary and up and down the country, in this blog post we are happy to share the typical questions that we receive  regarding our services.

Shopping for a wedding videographer in Kilkenny

 
What is the style of the finished product
Music Driven / Montage  described  as a music video style,  we use very little  natural audio from the day,  all video captions are overlaid with music. This would suit couples who are working on a tight budget, or simply don’t like hearing the sound of their own voices, it has been requested from time to time and is a nice memory of the day.

Dialog Driven Wedding Film
This is one of our most requested wedding film styles, finding natural audio clips from the day, using real toasts, the wedding vows and general audio from the full day to form a unique wedding story.  It requires more skill and time its one of our more up market packages, judging by feedback from our customers its worth the extra spend.
Some videographers like using very short clips fast style with upbeat music,  others edit with a slow dreamy style while paying great attention to color grading.  Each videographer will have their own natural default production style.  My style  certainly dose focus on the couples personality and is dialog driven,  when you view Drangan Video films, you will see the couples personality shining through.

So ask what is your Style of  Videography?
Don’t be afraid to ask your videographer this question, It will help you understand what to expect from your wedding film. My style has always been a journalistic approach  allowing  for more non intrusive free flowing wedding day. I get some shots with imperfect lighting and unusual angles, for couples and guests who prefer been filmed from a distance  this would be their perfect choice of wedding videography.

Who will be filming your wedding.
Here at Drangan Video all our weddings are shot and edited by Eamon, if an extra videographer is required that can be arranged.  A good personality is important especially for a wedding videographer are you comfortable dealing with them, are they good to be around on the day and do your other vendors feel comfortable working with them on the day.
Try to talk with your proposed  videographer to make sure that you are comfortable with him/her, Photographers have  told me stories about  videographers who were trying to take control of the photo shoot and not working in harmony during the photo call, all that tension will have a negative impact on the Bridal Party and families.  Most videographers can produce good results when conditions are perfect, but professionals produce great results  even when things are not going as planned, the weather can be unpredictable here in Kilkenny So we always need to have a plan B

Can you tell me about your wedding video experience
You will want your wedding videographer to have many years of experience, the longer they have been shooting weddings the more they have learned  and will be able to handle any unexpected  situation that may pop up.

Fun Weddings in Kilkenny

Have you filmed at this wedding venue before?
If  your videographer has filmed at the venue before, they will  know all the best places for the best shots, they will  know  the management and staff which  helps to keep everyone happy and smiling.

Have you worked with my photographer before
This is a very important question to ask your videographer, also ask your photographer the same question. If the photographer and videographer aren’t able to work smoothly together, it is going to affect your photos and video and your personal mood.  An experienced  videographer will be willing to adapt their style to blend in with the photographer.

The Final Product
The final product that your wedding videographer is offering can be confusing  the reason is because we all offer different packages, getting your head around the following  buzz words is important FacebookTeaser/Sneak Preview/Trailer/Instagram Highlights, These are similar names for  the same product.  Our  short edit films are usually between 1 minute and 5 minutes duration on Instagram, they are the films that our couples would have watched when checking out our work. We like to keep it simple yet producing high quality wedding videos ( Stylistic documentary Edits)

Delivery Format DVD, Blu-Ray, USB, Online
We deliver DVD, Blu-Ray, USB Drives and online more and more videographers  do not deliver these formats  but  more experienced videographers will still offer these delivery options. All our highlight films are delivered online in addition to physical delivery.

When will I get the final product
You will have to decide whether a faster delivery, or a top quality wedding film is more important to you,  a faster delivery usually will mean less quality  but a longer time frame doesn’t always guarantee  a better video, our turnaround on delivery is normally 4months.

 How much do you cost
A wedding video can cost anything from as little as €600 right up to €3,000 you can spend as much or as little as you want.  Wedding videography  is a creative talent and because of that the price gap can vary  dramatically.  A well established seasoned videographer is going to be at least as expensive as your photographer.  Our top video package @ €1200  provides coverage of the full day from morning preps up to 11pm in the evening.

Should I  take the risk of hiring someone with little experience.
 You can’t do a re-run of your wedding day,  you won’t  get a second chance with the video. A highly experienced, skilled videographer will capture a wedding in ways that a budget videographer simply can’t,  when you enter the church to see your groom, you want to remember his face, and not the clumsy  videographer who has setup his tripod in the center aisle. You don’t want an award looking camera man appearing in every wedding photo. Novice  videographers are more likely not to have a backup plan when cameras, recorder, cards or hard drives fail. Low budget  always means low quality product, and you’ll never get second chance for your wedding DVD.

Over the past 25 years we have seen many changes on the Irish wedding scene. Video technology has come on leaps and bounds, which means we can offer a service that is non-intrusive and discreet while delivering superior footage from every angle. We have also seen many changes in the way weddings are now celebrated across the country, from church weddings to humanist outdoor ceremonies, the world is now your oyster when it comes to getting married in Ireland, and the great news is, Kilkenny provides an incredible range of choices for couples of all beliefs and none.

 Wedding Video Supplier Kilkenny

When we first started providing wedding videography services in Kilkenny and every other county across Ireland, we found that wedding videos were never quite as important to the bride and groom as photography was. This has now flipped on its head and we see videography and photography working side-by-side at most wedding celebrations. In some cases, photography has now taken a back seat to wedding videography with guests providing the bride and groom with the images they have taken on the day via social media and image sharing apps.

Wedding Films Kilkenny

Another significant change we have seen for our Kilkenny weddings is the trend towards longer advance bookings. Most couples that come to us, upon first contact are at least one year out from the date of their wedding. In the past, we were no strangers to receiving bookings in the final months before a wedding, but this has all changed now, leaving the bride and groom with ample time to plan every aspect of the big day.

Your Wedding Day Checklist

The big day has finally arrived and all those months of planning are going to pay dividend today! It’s an exciting time and making the most of today and enjoying every moment should be your top priority. It may seem a little late in the day to be writing checklists but if you have this on hand on the morning of the wedding, you can be assured that everything else will fall into place. Most of this list will seem obvious at first glance, but you’d be surprised what can slip your mind when you’re about to embark on the happiest day of your life.

Wedding Day Checklist
For the Bride:

Wedding Dress – This should go without saying, but have your wedding dressed pressed, steamed and ready to wear in the days leading up to your Wedding Day. Hang your dress in a place where it is safe and out of reach from little hands.

Headpieces – If you are wearing a veil or a floral headpiece, double check you have all the necessary clips and pins to secure it in place for your big day. Store in a safe area that is free from damp and curious eyes!

Perfume – Choose a perfume that is precious to you, a scent that will forever remind you of your big day. A scent can bring back a thousand memories and you will want to ensure you have a spritz or two of your favourite perfume before you leave for the ceremony.

Old, new, borrowed, blue – If you’re a traditionalist and want to follow the old, new, borrowed and blue custom, make sure you have all 4 in place at least the night before the ceremony.

Bouquet and Flowers – Make sure you have all of the flowers that were ordered. If you have arranged delivery to your home on the morning of the wedding, ask one of your bridesmaids to double check that everything has arrived before the delivery person leaves.

For Him

Shoes – Yes, it’s unlikely that you would forget your shoes, but have you remembered to polish them and make sure there are no scuffmarks? This should be done the night before the wedding and your shoes stored in a box overnight to keep them in ship-shape.

Accessories – Gather together all of the accessories you will need to wear on your big day. This will include your tie, cufflinks, watch, belt, tie clip and suspenders if you have chosen to wear them. Ask your best man to check that all of the groomsmen have done the same and you can relax in the knowledge that you have everything covered!

Boutonnieres – When your boutonnieres are delivered in the morning, do a thorough check to ensure no one has been left out. You’ll need one for each of the grooms party, your parents and other close family that will be sitting at the top table – and of course yourself.

Cologne – Have you chosen a cologne to wear on the day, does your bride to be have a favourite scent? Make sure you have your cologne on hand for a quick spritz before you leave for the venue and ask your Best Man to bring it to the venue for you so you can have a fresh spritz a little later.
