Have you made the decision to hire a videographer for your Toronto wedding? Wedding videography is quite trendy and it is a wonderful way to capture all of the memorable moments of your wedding that go far beyond typical wedding photographs. When you can hear voices, see movements and peek at interactions between yourselves as well as your guests, you will see that a wedding video is the ultimate way to remember your most special day. When you are looking for wedding videographers to capture these timeless moments, it is important to keep the following in mind:
Choose Someone Who Has the Same Style as Yourself
When looking through the sea of wedding videographers in Toronto, you will definitely want to make sure that you are working with one that has the same style as you do. If you are more interested in a style that is more candid, you definitely don’t want to choose a wedding videographer that is highly focused on a editing and effects. Though you can typically find a happy medium with most wedding videographers, it will probably be in your best interest to make sure your styles are similar. The best way to do this is to see samples of their work.
Choose Someone Who Has the Right Equipment
You will find all types of wedding videographers out there when looking for someone to film your wedding. It is worth noting that typically, a videographer with better equipment will produce a higher quality video. For example, many brides and grooms think that a friend or family member with a fancy video camera will be able to film the wedding. Though they can certainly film it, the end result will not be as good as a professional videographer can do who has thousands of dollars of equipment on their side. If you want outstanding wedding videography, only choose a professional videographer.
Make Sure they are Flexible with Their Time
Finally, you should make sure that you find out if the wedding videographers you are considering are flexible with their time. For example, sometimes weddings get a bit off schedule and even though the reception is slated to end at a certain time, say 11:00pm, you may not be able to make your grand exit until 11:15pm. How would you feel if your wedding videographer took off at 11 and missed that important moment? You would probably feel pretty angry. This is why it is so important to hash this all out from the start. Knowing that your videographer will be a bit flexible with his or her time will help you to make a great choice.
In addition to these things, there are, of course, many other things to consider. Things like feeling comfortable with your videographer, making sure you get your video back in a reasonable amount of time and finding a service that is affordable are all important as well when you are going through the process of choosing wedding videographers. However, if you keep all of this in mind, you will be able to find the perfect videographer for your wedding, perhaps even Cyrus Mir Studio.
It is no surprise to anyone that wedding photography is an extremely important part of your wedding day. With top notch photography, you will easily be able to remember your Toronto wedding, as well as everything that happened there, for many years to come. In order to ensure that your wedding photos turn out as amazing as they possibly can, you will need to find an outstanding photographer for the wedding. This, however, is where it can become dicey. In order to find the photographer of your dreams, you will need to understand their style…and this is something that may need a bit of explaining.
In general, you will find three different wedding photography styles mentioned as you research wedding photographers. The first of these is known as the reportage/documentary/photojournalism style. With this type of photographic style, the photographer will do a lot less posing and a lot more candids. Essentially, when you choose a photographer for a wedding who takes pictures in this style, you will better see the flow of the day, the happiness of the crowd and events that you probably wouldn’t otherwise see. This is the most natural style when it comes to wedding photography styles.
The second type of wedding photography styles that you will come across is the traditional type of photography. This style is probably what you think of when you think of wedding photography with groups of people, expertly posed in the wedding location. With most traditional photography, you won’t stray far from the venue and a greater number of photos will be posed and group shots over fun loving candid shots or shots that go outside into the local cityscape or parks, common locations for modern photography.
Speaking of modern, or contemporary wedding photography, this is the third main type of photos you will see offered as you research wedding photographers in Toronto. Contemporary wedding photography will take a small amount of traditional photography and mix it will a bit of reportage photography, all while adding posed shots off site, for example at your favourite park or with the city skyline behind the happy couple. On top of that, contemporary wedding photography will also use a bit of innovation in the form of new angles, unusual poses and often times has an avant-garde feel.
As you research, you will find different photographers offering many things. It is always best to simply ignore the labels and go with the look you find the most stunning. Many photographers, like Cyrus Mir Studio, work hard to bring elements of all three of these styles into the photographs and you will quickly find, if you are like the majority, that a combination of these make the most attractive photos. By taking the time to research the different styles, however, you will know how to recognize the different elements when it comes to your wedding photography. Don’t get hung up on the labels, go with what you think is the most beautiful.
