The perfect Wedding Video for your wedding
The most beautiful memory of the wedding day is the wedding video, but with a professional video you have to expect slightly higher costs. Whether professional or layman – the decision is entirely up to you and, as I said, is often also a question of price.

Spoiled for choice, how do I find the right company for my wedding film?
The easiest way to find the right company is to watch sample wedding videos. So you can quickly see whether the style suits your needs.
Important note: If you want to book a videographer, you should do so as soon as possible, ideally 6 – 9 months before the wedding.
Personal consultation with the wedding videographer
A positive and familiar atmosphere between the newlyweds and videographers is a great advantage to capture unforgettable and intimate moments.
The style should be discussed in advance in a personal conversation with the videographer. The best shots are made in the background, so the filming does not have an unpleasant effect on the wedding guests.
With a top wedding video photographer you have the advantage that the professional post-processing can create a wedding video in the league of a Hollywood film. More and more videographers are already working with the latest HD cameras, which guarantee top quality.
Regarding the final cut, it is also important that you communicate your wishes in advance, such as Music storage, which scenes are particularly important to you, etc. Basically you can say, the more information you tell the videographer about your wishes, the less nasty surprises will be in retrospect.
What services are included in a wedding video?
The services included in a wedding video vary from company to company. However, you should definitely ask the following details in advance whether they are included in the range of services:
1) Will the location be previewed?
2) How many cameras is used to record? (multiple perspectives possible)
3) In which time period is the wedding video cut and post-processed? (Digital post-processing, color corrections, tone corrections, inserting suitable music, and much more.)
4) How many minutes will the long version have? (30/45/60/90/120 minutes)
5) Is a wedding video trailer included? Can you use this trailer for Youtube?
6) Output format: DVD? Is the DVD printed?
7) DVD menu included in the price?
8) DVD cover with colored cover included?
The bride and groom should definitely clarify these questions in advance so that all of their ideas and wishes are implemented to achieve an unforgettable experience.
How much does a wedding video cost?
The package price almost always depends on how long the wedding will be filmed and how long the video should ultimately be. The longer it is filmed, the more footage has to be viewed and the longer it takes to cut the wedding video. Basically, you can book a wedding video from just 500 $. An average provider charges between 1,300 and 2,000 $ for filming a 12h wedding. The creme del a creme of wedding filmmakers can charge between 3,000 and 10,000 $ for a wedding video.
Have relatives / friends film the wedding video
Often there is the possibility that a relative or friend of the couple is filming the wedding. It is important that you inquire how much experience he has and whether he can show you a production of a wedding video. But if you really want to have a professional wedding video, we recommend a professional wedding video.
