@sunflower22:  Just watch lots of videos online and see what you like best.  There are many different styles out there, so just go with what you’re looking for.  For me, I liked the cinematic effect with mostly music playing over the video for the highlight cut. 

Are you looking for a longer video of the whole day, the ceremony in its entirety, or a 5 minute highlight video?

@sunflower22:  I agree with LaceyBride1123. I would:

1. set a budget

2. find videographers within your budget

3. compare their work and narrow it down to the few you like.

4. talk/meet with them to discuss their work/your style preferences.

Keep in mind that details such as how long the videographer is there on the day of, how many shooters, products like highlight reels, “full features” and raw footage will affect pricing.

I’ve had friends who hired videographers that lost video footage, lost audio, etc. So, even if you don’t want a movie as your wedding video, I would recommend finding someone with a good reputation and references.

good luck!
