Shooting wedding videos is a big and lucrative business. If you have experience and technical knowledge of videography, but have never done a wedding, you will need some basic information. You should be up front with your potential clients about your lack of experience shooting weddings. Show them samples of whatever work you have done so they can see you’re not a novice with a video camera. Offer the bride and groom a great deal on your wedding packages and keep your prices lower than the competition until you have some successful weddings under your belt.
One of the most expensive things to buy when preparing for a wedding is the wedding dress or gown. Because these dresses tend to be very expensive, many brides just rent them to get savings along the way. However, the disadvantage of renting wedding gowns is that you will have to return them after your wedding day. So, this simply means that you will not have the gown in your possession; if that is going to be the case then that can be something disheartening on the part of the bride, isn’t it?
VASES. These are great for adding photographs to, both inside and out, just takes some imagination. How many plain vases do you see. Look in a flower shop, they need something extra, that excites and entices the people in, not to say promotes the shop as well.
Make an appointment. ALWAYS. Always meet your videographer in person. A Wedding Videographer in Singapore is pretty easy to reach, considering that we live on a small red dot. Could the videographer answer most of your queries? You must feel comfortable with them and make sure they are not artists with attitude. I’ve heard of horror stories… A professional Videographer holds customer service in high regards, next to the perfection of their craft.
Meeting with Business Owners in the Same Industry – You should also meet with vendors who share the same market as you. If you cater to Wedding Videos, you must have enough connections with wedding organizers, photographers, etc so that you will get more referrals. Same is true if you provide video production services to corporations. Figure out which vendors have the same client as you and try to set a meeting with them. Tell them how you would like to contribute in growing each other’s businesses by working together.
There’s nothing worse than having the wedding planner, catering staff, or videographer in every photograph. Even if you are also an invited guest, it is important that your presence, while behind the camera, is innocuous. This will allow the party to proceed organically. That will give you much better shots than those that are carefully contrived.
So unless you know someone who is truly skilled at making movies, if you want a videographer at your wedding, go out and hire one instead of relying on your Uncle Jim. Trust me on this – you’ll be glad you did.
