Never underestimate the importance of choosing the right person to shoot your wedding video. Do your research thoroughly and go through portfolios patiently. Make sure that you pick a videographer who you feel will be able to capture your special day in the best possible way. You could also read reviews about them or even call people who have hired them in the past, for an honest review.
Once you have picked a videographer, it is necessary to pick a shooting approach. Sit down and talk to your videographer. Decide if you want your wedding video to look like a simple documentary, with a modest camera following you around, or if you want it to look big and cinematic, just like something straight out of a Karan Johar film!
This is the most important bit of every wedding video. What’s your story and how do you want it to come alive? Do you want to talk about everything that has happened since the time you and your beau met? Or do you want to keep it simple and just talk about your happy day and the happy times ahead? Once you have a storyline in place, the video will flow forth smoothly.
Shooting takes time. So, there is every possibility that your makeup is going to fade away under the bright lights or the scorching sun. Make sure to carry a makeup or a touch-up kit with you. This way, you can always look fresh and beautiful on camera, without worrying.

Communication is key. If you shut out your videographer completely, you will not be aware of whether or not he or she is shooting something that you have in mind. By communicating and being friendly with your videographer, you can rest assured that he/she will know exactly what you have in mind and will give you the wedding video that you have always dreamed about.
It is important to not look too stiff and awkward on camera. To avoid this, make sure that you and your partner talk to each other before the shoot. In this way, you can both be prepared for what lies ahead. Keep talking to each other and make each other feel comfortable, so that the two of you look more natural on camera.
Video bytes can be casually inserted into your wedding video. Get your family and close friends to talk about the two of you, on camera. It makes for some lovely memories.
Impatience results in bad moments that the camera can easily capture and this will ultimately ruin your final wedding video! So, be patient and keep calm. If you feel tired, go ahead and take breaks. It is equally important for your videographer to take breaks as well. Remember: if you feel calm and happy, you will look calm and happy!
