A wedding videographer is one of the most important professionals to hire, to capture video footages of the wedding event and edit and create perfect videos that can be watched and re-watched to relive the precious moments of the big day. Know about some of the most important questions that you have to ask to a professional wedding videographer in Italy before you hire him or her.

What is your style?

You need to ask about the style of video that the professional can shoot. Basically, there are two styles:

  1. Short, generally romantic in type and has couples pose intimately with each other. These are generally between 10 and 40 minutes in duration. The videos are supposed to only capture the essence of the wedding, and often include only the ceremony with some romantic music playing in the background.
  2. Long, typically in the style of a documentary. These may be between 45 and 90 minutes in duration, and comprises of a more detailed description of all the events that take place all through the wedding day.

Do you cover destination weddings?

If you are planning on having a destination wedding Italy, you have to ask the videographer whether he is ready to go to the place to cover your wedding and how much extra he will charge. The wedding videographer is likely to charge extra, fares excluded, for going to the destination where you would have the wedding and you have to take that into account in your wedding budget as well.

How many cameras will be used?

In case you have opted for long video style, you can expect the videographer to be using at least 3 cameras. One of these will be on the side of the groom, and will cover the best close ups and views of the bride. Another will be on another side of the groom, and will cover all the guests. There will be a third one at the back to capture the entire view of all the goings-on. A minimum of 2 cameras have to be mounted over tripods.

What are your fees?

The fees of professional videographers tend to vary across the board. Those using the latest cameras and equipment are usually more experienced, and also charge more. While you have to pay more for their services, you can be assured of getting the best quality videos of your big day.
