Are you interested in having a professional videographer film your wedding? These days, many people are choosing to have quality, professionally done videos created for their special day. Wedding videography has come a long way from the days of either friends using their hobbyist equipment, or extremely expensive professional wedding videographers. There are now many options for reasonably priced wedding videos by specialized video production services.

Before you choose a wedding videographer, there are a few key points to keep in mind. First, what kind of wedding video do you want? There are numerous video formats that your wedding video can take. Your video can be a documentary style wedding video, a professional and polished feature that shows events unfolding. If that's not to your liking, some video production services can produce wedding videos that have more cinematic elements. Some wedding video services can even produce faux homemade videos that have the appeal of an amateur video but the editing and production of a professionally shot wedding video.

Check which kind of formats you can receive your wedding video in. These days, most wedding video production companies can provide DVDs for you. However, there are some wedding videographers that offer other formats, such as Blu-Ray discs or other high-definition video or even fully digital movie files.

You'll want to know ahead of time whether or not your wedding video production service offers additional services, such as adding wedding photos and montages to your video (also known as "video scrapbooks"), engagement videos, "Morning Of" features, musical recaps and overlays, or other features. Some video production services offer these features and some don't; be sure to ask your wedding videographer beforehand if you have your heart set on a particular feature. However, don't be afraid to discuss what other features that the videographer can offer that you didn't even think of; there may be a wedding video feature that you didn't know about that you'll love.

Finally, and most importantly, you want to be comfortable with the video production service that is creating your wedding video. You will be working closely with the videographer in order to determine what exactly you want in your wedding video. Just like your grandmother's wedding photos, your wedding video will be a part of your life for years to come. By using the tips in this article to find the right wedding videographer, you can be sure that you'll cherish your wedding video.
