Good gear list
We’re not saying ‘extensive’ because talented videographers can make amazing wedding films even without having the most high tech equipment. However, they should have the basics. This includes the following:
- Good DSLR cameras with video capability
- Different kinds of lenses
- Lighting equipment
- Sound recording equipment
DSLR cameras these days are pretty easy to use. But framing, composition and timing are something that only great videographers can do. See that you check out the other projects that they have worked on so that you have a basis.
The shots list
Clients don’t often ask about this but, if you want that everything is covered, it wouldn’t hurt that you ask your provider if you could check on their wedding videos shot list. They would not (in fact, should not) mind.
You can also make your own list of possible shots that you want and give it to them during your meetings. For instance, if you want them to capture your parents during the ceremony or a specific set of friends while the reception is ongoing, do so. Flexibility is a must-have trait.
A working team
Creating any kind of audiovisual presentation, even if that’s a simple 5-minute one, is not a one-man job. Covering weddings is even harder because there are a lot of things happening at the same time. Therefore, a wedding cinematography team should consist of the following:
- Audio Guy
- Lighting Guy
