What To Look For When Booking A Wedding Filmmaker?
And if we didn’t love Happy Flashbacks by Noopur & Anish already, they’ve taken the time to give you guys tips for ensuring your wedding movie is forever memorable — a movie even your kids will watch on repeat and celebrate how their mom and dad came together.
Here are the questions you’ve got to ask your wedding filmmaker!
How long have they been filming weddings?
Seasoned professionals like Happy Flashbacks have been creating art and reaching higher and higher rungs of success because of their talent as storytellers and their technical prowess with the latest equipment. Pay attention to your filmmaker’s past accomplishments – it’s better than any CV.
How do they describe their style?
Movie making comes in many shapes, forms, and styles. From those who create cinematic masterpieces, to others who simply point, shoot and deliver raw footage. We’d suggest you meet Noopur & Anish in person – understand their philosophy, style and abilities — and let them get to know your story. Your wedding video should be the perfect union of you and your filmmakers – and the only way to ensure that is to meet in person!
How many people will shoot your wedding?
If your wedding celebrations are going to have lots of moving parts – people dancing, some at the bar, family reuniting, lovely traditions and more — be sure to hire a filmmaker team. With Happy Flashbacks, you’ll get a team that is totally in-sync with each other — catching different moments and not missing any of the joy, the tears, the hungama and the dancing.
How much will it cost?
Our best advice is no not skimp out on your wedding filmmaker budget. If you’re loosening the purse strings to make every other detail of your wedding gorgeously perfect, they won’t matter at all if not captured in the perfect way on film! To really memorialize the magic of your celebrations, set aside a budget for your wedding video.
Also keep in mind, different filmmakers price their services differently, depending on how much they’ll deliver and in which formats. There is no standard package that you can get and we’d suggest discussing your options rather than simply asking for a price list.
Are you shooting any other weddings on the same days as mine?
This one is crucial for getting undivided attention on your celebrations! Your filmmakers should be totally committed to your wedding, without the fatigue of other clients clouding their energy levels. And this is where Happy Flashbacks is a class apart – they handpick very few clients and then give their full attention, heart and soul to each wedding. And it shows!
What camera and equipment do you use?
A filmmaker’s flair for storytelling will take them so far — but their presentation will be what seals the deal. Shoddy equipment and inadequate audio will take away the magic of your wedding video and leave it looking like an amateur home movie. Instead, opt for experts like Noopur and Anish who utilize cutting edge technology, have mastered their cameras and are aces at editing your wedding movies.
Don’t wait till the very last minute to decide on a wedding filmmaker. All those details you’ve painstakingly planned – the perfect venue, the beautiful outfits, the sangeet performances and those heartfelt speeches – they deserve utmost importance! And they’ll all lose their sheen and enigma if not captured perfectly. So give priority to booking a filmmaker early on in your wedding planning process so your special moments live on forever on film.
