Six months to a year before your wedding. Popular
wedding dates may be booked more than a year in advance.
What they do:
The videographer will have several packages from which to choose. A
professionally trained videographer will videotape your wedding. If you wish,
special effects, titles or music can be added to your tape. The tape will be
edited and should be available approximately two or three months after your
wedding. They will make as many copies from the master tape as you wish but,
like a photographer's negatives, this master will remain in their hands.
How to work with them:
Make an appointment to view their demo tapes, which will give you an
opportunity to judge their versatility and the quality of their productions.
Supply the videographer with your wedding-day itinerary about a month before
your wedding. Find out from your wedding officiator if there are any
restrictions regarding videotaping your wedding ceremony.
