Wedding videographers have become more popular over the last few years, due in part to internet technologies that allow us to display wedding videos online for our friends and family to access easily. You have to learn how to choose the right wedding photographer before making that investment. Here are 3 rules to follow when choosing the right wedding videographer.

Check Equipment You want to stay on top of the newest technology when it comes to your wedding, so you must make sure that your prospective wedding photographer has the best equipment available for his use.

Do research on what are the newest video equipment technologies on the market and get a list together of at least five of the top brands. Then compare your list with what the wedding videographer has to offer. Good research is how to choose the right wedding videographer for your wedding needs.

You can request to come to the wedding videographers studio to actually view the equipment. Any professional wedding videographer will have no problem with this.

Check Portfolio Then comes the fun part. Sit down and peruse your many options for your wedding videographer. Pull out the DVD player and your laptop to view the wedding videographers portfolio. They will either provide you with a DVD, a tape, or a website. Is their quality superior?

If you are saying to yourself, I want my wedding video to be shot in the same quality as a television show, then look through the wedding videographers portfolio and see if he or she has that capability. If you want your wedding to shoot at movie quality, or just to look like a regular home movie, learn how to choose the right wedding videographer based on the quality of the videos they have already shot.

You will also want to discuss the format with potential wedding photographers. Will they provide you with a wedding video DVD, a wedding videotape, or just a wedding video media file to be viewed online.

Narrow Down Choices Once you have looked through wedding videographers portfolios and examined a list of the equipment owned by the wedding videographers you are evaluating, narrow them down to a list of two or three. Your final round of evalutiaons should include a mix of the quality, reputation, equipment, and responsiveness of the wedding videographers.

Do research and read information that will teach you how to work with wedding videographers to create a quality wedding video package at a reasonable price.
