What To Ask Your Wedding Videographer: Essential Questions To Get the Perfect Wedding Video

Wedding videography is a specialist service and one that is new to many people despite its fast-expanding popularity. We’ve compiled a list of questions to ask your wedding videographer to help make sure your needs are met.

What style of wedding video do you specialise in?

Wedding videographers will typically shoot in different styles, and this is one of the first things to consider. Depending on what type of film you want, you may want your wedding filmed in a cinematic style, like your very own movie, or in a traditional play-by-play, alternatively, you may want a short highlight reel from the day.

At Grace & Motion, we specialise in creating cinematic-style wedding videos. Our approach is to capture your day with a storytelling perspective, combining beautiful visuals with emotional storytelling to create a film that reflects the unique essence of your wedding. We aim to deliver a cinematic experience that transports viewers back to the magic and emotions of your special day.

What is the time frame for delivering the final video?

Editing a wedding video to a high standard takes time. Different companies will have different resources and schedules, so they’ll know how long the time frame is for video delivery. It’s important to remember that your wedding video is supposed to specifically be what you want it to be, so good communication during this phase is key.

Your videographer will be able to share the final product with you, have you check that you’re happy, and if anything needs to be added or removed that’s all part of the service we provide. Roughly you can expect it to be around 8 weeks from your wedding to delivery of your video, however, companies differ and so this is also a great question to ask we know you want to be able to enjoy your wedding video as soon as possible.

How many cameras will be used?

How many cameras are used is down to the resources available from the videographer and may differ according to the service required. For example, we can provide up to two videographers and a drone operator. Knowing what equipment your videographer will come armed with on the day is important as you’ll get an idea of how they’ll fit in with your wedding. High-grade, non-intrusive equipment will fit in best with the day without making someone’s wedding feel like a film set.

How much do you charge?

When hiring a videographer, their prices might be posted on their website. For example, you can see Grace & Motion’s package costs on ours with a breakdown of precisely what’s included. Videography is an art, requiring both camera operation, editing, and overall filmmaking skills (particularly within cinematic style) and if you’re hiring a qualified professional their prices will reflect that.

Our pricing is transparent and designed to reflect the quality and expertise that goes into creating each wedding video. Packages start from £1,700, with options to customise based on your specific needs and preferences. Each package includes detailed editing to ensure every moment is captured beautifully and presented in a way that resonates with your vision.

What other services do you offer (e.g. drone footage, slow motion, etc.)?

Some wedding videos will have other services or added extras that you can request for your film. In addition to our core cinematic wedding video services, we offer a range of enhancements to elevate your video further. Our premium packages include drone footage to capture stunning aerial views of your venue and surroundings. We also incorporate slow-motion effects and timelapses to add depth and cinematic flair to your wedding film. These options are designed to enhance the storytelling and emotional impact of your video, creating a truly memorable keepsake of your wedding day.

Do you have previous wedding video samples I can view?

Viewing the portfolio of your Yorkshire wedding videographer will be greatly important in helping you decide whether their work matches your vision and expectations. On our website and social media platforms such as Instagram and Facebook, you can find a portfolio showcasing our previous wedding videos.
