8 Tips For Hiring A
Colorado Wedding Videographer

Go with a professional

Find a film maker that specializes in weddings. It is important that they have a firm understanding of how to properly document special moments  and have unobtrusive techniques to stay discreet throughout the day.

Find a local

Connect with someone that is familiar with the area and has worked with some of your other wedding vendors. Especially when it comes to documenting weddings in the mountains, it is key to find a videographer that understands the lighting and how to safely navigate the terrain. 

understand their turn around time

Wedding films can take 6 months or more to receive your final product. Get a firm understanding about when you will be able to receive your wedding film. 

Define deliverables

Some wedding videographers solely offer 4-5 minute highlight films, why other wedding videographers offer longer films that are close to an hour long. Many will also offer the option for separate films that focus on the wedding ceremony, first dances, toasts, and rehearsal dinners. 

incorporate audio

The most emotional and touching wedding videos include audio from personal wedding vows, letters, toasts, and first-looks. Be sure to find a videographer in Colorado that will include these pieces as a part of your film. 

fall in love with their videos and style

Each videographer will have a signature style of filming and storytelling. Ensure that you hire a videographer that aligns with the type of wedding video you are seeking, as past videos will be a true reflection of what you can expect from your wedding day. 

pay attention to the music

Do you prefer funky tunes with lyrics? Or videos with a slower romantic pace? Be aware of the type of music your desired wedding videographer is including in their films. Keep in mind that they are required to license music for each film, and they typically make the executive decision in regards to the music in your wedding film.

Find a match for your venue type

If you are having an outdoor wedding, it will be important to find a wedding videographer that is familiar with outdoor lighting and is prepared to shoot in a variety of weather conditions.
