Using The Professional

The main quality you want to look for is a good documentarian. Having a videographer that is flexible and willing to be there while the bride is getting ready and having her pre-wedding photos taken at the house can be wonderful moments to capture on tape. Think of everything you’d like to see and make a list of events for the videographer. (more…)
