Congratulations! You've found a wedding videographer that you like, and you're ready to book them for your big day. However, before you sign on the dotted line, there are a few more things you should ask to ensure that you get the best possible wedding video. Here are five more things to ask your wedding videographer:

How do you handle audio?

Audio is just as important as video when it comes to capturing your wedding day. You'll want to make sure that your videographer has the right equipment to capture clear audio, such as wireless microphones or a separate audio recorder. Ask how they handle audio during the ceremony, speeches, and other important moments.

Can we provide a shot list?

A shot list is a list of specific shots or moments that you want to be captured in your wedding video. Providing a shot list can help ensure that your videographer captures all the important moments that are most important to you. Ask if your videographer is open to receiving a shot list and if they have any suggestions for what to include.

What is your turnaround time?

After your wedding day, you'll be eager to see your wedding video as soon as possible. Ask your videographer what their turnaround time is and when you can expect to receive your video. Some videographers may offer expedited editing for an additional fee, so be sure to ask about that as well.

How do you handle music licensing?

Music is an important part of any wedding video, but using copyrighted music without permission can lead to legal issues. Ask your videographer how they handle music licensing and if they have any recommendations for royalty-free or licensed music that you can use in your video.

How do you work with the photographer?

Your wedding photographer and videographer will be working closely together on your wedding day to capture all the important moments. It's important to find a videographer who can work well with your photographer and coordinate with them to ensure that they both capture the shots they need. Ask your videographer how they typically work with photographers and if they have any recommendations for photographers they've worked with before. Having a team that works well together will result in a seamless and cohesive final product.

Asking these additional questions will help ensure that you have a smooth and stress-free experience with your wedding videographer. Remember to communicate openly and honestly with your videographer to ensure that you both have a clear understanding of expectations and that you get the wedding video of your dreams.
