Wedding Series: Working with Videographers

Photography and videography are VERY different. In order to be able to capture a day with photos AND videos, you need two separate professionals. It is SO fun to work with a videographer and see the same day unfold in video clips. Videographers have a talent that I can’t even comprehend to tell a story of an entire day in just a few minutes. If it’s your first time working with a videographer, it can be intimidating. Just remember these 4 simple things.

1.Communication

Each and every issue that you could possibly have with a videographer (and that a videographer can have with you) can be fixed by communication before a session or wedding begins.

A few things to cover:

  • Where do you stand / walk during a ceremony
  • Where are their cameras set up so you won’t walk in front
  • Your shooting style and system for portraits
  • Giving them permission to step in any time of day they need
  • Lighting set ups

2.Use Action Poses

Our style is naturally very focused on getting the bride and groom to move around and evoke emotion. Videographers love that. If you can add in action poses or simple queues to every pose, you will save them time and get fun pictures! Constantly remind the couple when they kiss, or look at each other that it’s on video. After a few photo sessions they start holding poses, kisses and stares which can look awkward on video. Get them moving!

 

3.Give them their time

Let your videographer know in the beginning of the day to step in whenever they want or need. Try to give them their own time in each location before moving to the next one. Not all videographers need this much solo time depending on their shooting style. When you’re done with the portrait section of a wedding day, always turn the couple over to the videographer for some alone time and step back into a second shooter time role instead of telling them they’re done.

4.Respect

The bride and groom hired BOTH of you to capture their wedding day. Each of you is equally as important. Just because a photographer’s job is more of the control, directing position, make sure you’re including the videographer in all the decisions. Be aware of their cameras, mic set ups and more. Respect their space, their view and their job.

I’m a mom building a business and community from the comfiest spot on my bed. What started as girl with a camera turned into a dream business. With God and my husband by my side, I have grown this one woman amateur show into the best team. I have five incredible women by my side serving hundreds of brides, families and brands each year. I also get to help other women (mainly moms) create thriving businesses from home and grow a community of kind creatives.
