What are some things couples should look for when looking for a videographer?

To have a video of your wedding is not a simple thing, actually it should be one of the most important things you need to plan and to keep those memories forever. Your wedding day goes so quickly but capturing it in a video will make you feel those shivers over and over again. Believe me, is very different than photography, to hire a videographer will be the best investment you can do, no regrets for the money you will pay, but is very important to do it wisely. That`s why I recommend these points to consider:

  • Take your time to watch videos and find your style.
  • Meet your videographer.
  • Sign a contract
  • Provide all the details of your wedding day.

What is your favorite part of the day to capture?

Everything! it’s a celebration day so each moment is special. If i have to choose a specific  moment, I love that moment when the groom is waiting to see the bride for the first time walking through the aisle, the exchanging of vows and for sure the party!


How do you feel videography has changed in the last few years?

Technically only by the equipment that each videographer uses. But in a deep essence, the creativity of each videographer is absolutely something that change and improves all the time, but this development  just come from experience. I think that videography changes only in the way we are able to create a small piece of history through the eye of the person who tells it.

Do you have advice for wedding videographers just starting out?

Beyond a camera, The most important resource you need to tell a great story is in your head. But don’t get confused, talent and skills are very different  resources: talent is something that one is born with, skill is something that is created with determination and hours and hours of work and effort.


If you were to make a blooper reel, what moment that you’ve captured were very special to you?

Each wedding that we had the honor to capture has a lot of special moments, but maybe I could have a top 3: Tara & Ben first dance and party, Amanda & Matt exchange vows and Vanessa & Adam party atmosphere. Special mention to Kat & Chad familly moments, Greta & Ben sister of the bride speech and Tatum & Cody wedding moments with his small baby daughter.

What is the most challenging part of your job?

To capture a moment that will never repeat again. Contrary to the photography where you can plan the moment and repeat it many times, videography only has one opportunity, for that it is so special.


Any advice for couples?

ENJOY YOUR DAY! you are hiring someone for their great talent and experience, trust the decision you made. But to get the best images you need to look just like you are, so don’t keep an eye on them, they are there to capture all the things that you will miss during the day, you should have complete confidence on them.
