Secondly, once they receive the budget, they don’t know how to compare it with others offers properly.
That’s why today, we offer you 5 tips so you know how to request a quote for wedding video.
What to ask and what information to give?
The video producer with whom you contact must be clear about the location to know how to budget exactly for the displacement.
…or places where the event is going to take place: the church or place where the wedding ceremony will take place, as well as the preparations and the place of the reception. In this way, the video agency will have information on what technical equipment they will need (lighting, sound, use or not of the drone …)
Date and time of the wedding
Of course, when requesting a budget for wedding video you can not leave this aspect. Surely the most important thing is to see if the producer will have that date available.
Event time and video duration
How long is your video going to be? Would you like to record pre-wedding session? All this is essential at the budget level.
Are you going to want some areas to be filmed with a drone? Would you rather have more than one camera operator to capture absolutely everything? What style, tone and colors will your video have? What are the payment terms? Think of everything so that you can fully customize the video budget.
Compare budgets for wedding video: What do I have to look at?
Beware of excessively cheap services and, at the other extreme, very expensive services.
Audiovisual technology advances rapidly. Make sure you have an updated audiovisual production company and that it has the most innovative technical resources. Today, everything that is not at least Full HD, you must reject it ( drone or camera).
Comments and reviews on Social Networks
Something that many forget is to investigate the social networks and it is essential to know the reputation of the producer. Look at the reviews, read the comments that are in their social profiles and, if it is a producer from your area, maybe you can also talk to someone who hired their services.
Technical and human resources used
You should find out (and if they don’t tell you, ask) how many camera operators and drone operators are included in the budget for the video recording and editing of the wedding event. You should also take into account the technical resources: a wedding video with a drone will raise the final price, which is logical since having a drone is expensive in itself (courses, license, insurance, in addition to the device itself and the camera that is incorporate)
