When Should You Hire a Wedding Videographer?

When planning a wedding, there are many decisions to make. One of those decisions is whether or not to hire a wedding videographer. Videographers can capture the events of the day in a way that photos cannot. They can also create a video that can be enjoyed for years to come. Did you know that not hiring a Wedding Videographer is the NUMBER ONE regret after your wedding is over? Sadly, many couples make the decision far to late in their wedding planning experience because they aren’t sure at first if they want one or not. In those cases what they find is that they either don’t have enough in their budget to afford a professional or worse no one is available! So, when should you hire?

Talk It Over at the Beginning

When it comes to hiring a wedding videographer, many couples wait until the last minute. This is often a mistake, as good videographers tend to book up well in advance. It’s best to start planning for your wedding video as early as possible.

One of the benefits of hiring a videographer early on is that you have time to shop around and find someone who fits your budget and style. You also have time to work out all the details with your videographer, such as the shooting schedule and what footage you want captured.

Waiting until the last minute can also lead to rushed decisions and higher costs. If you’re looking for a quality wedding video that will capture all the important moments of your big day, it’s best to start planning ahead and hire a wedding videographer sooner rather than later.

What Does a Wedding Planner Say?

A wedding planner can help you determine when to hire a wedding videographer. Lucky for us we partner with Erie Wedding Planning so we’ve been able to pick the Lead Planners brain. According to Eve, most couples hire a videographer between 10 and 12 months before their wedding. This allows them to take the time to intierview potential candidates and browse samples of wedding vidoes. 

So, When Are You Going to Hire?

In conclusion, it is important to start planning for your wedding videographer as soon as possible. This will allow you enough time to research and find the best videographer for your big day. By hiring a videographer early, you can ensure that you get the best quality service and have memories to last a lifetime.
