Choosing a videographer for your wedding can feel a little intimidating. There are a million other things you need to worry about and some of the jargon makes it a little hard to understand.

These questions should help you sort the real deal from the phonies. Before hiring your wedding videographer, make sure to ask these 36 questions.

Availability

1. Are you available for our date?

If not, ask if they have any recommendations for other videographers at a similar price point.


2. Will you be the one filming our wedding?

If your videographer owns their own business and does not have a studio with other videographers, they will most likely be the ones filming your wedding. If they own a larger company and employ other videographers, make sure you meet whoever will be filming your wedding and try to include them in the rest of your conversations.


3. Will you have other weddings booked on the same day or weekend?

Most videographers will book the entire day for you unless you are doing some sort of elopement or smaller ceremony. Make sure to clarify this information.


4. How far in advance can I reserve my wedding?

There isn’t a right or wrong for this, some videographers won’t accept bookings for more than two years in advance.


Background Check

5. How long have you been filming weddings?

Try to make sure that they’ve been filming for at least a year. If not, it’s not necessarily a red flag, just make sure to properly review their work and their contract before signing.
