- Wedding: May 2017
I just got my wedding video back and while it definitely is lovely and has moments I was hoping to see the videographers would include … it’s also missing things and seems to be edited… oddly is the best choice of words I can use.
One key thing that isn’t in either the short highlights video (5 minutes) or their feature film video that’s the wedding day and all it’s events (20 minutes) is nothing from the reception.
I know usually after the first hour or so of a reception videographers don’t stay but like… nothing? Not us walking in or our first dance? Or even detail shots? That really made me sad that I don’t even see a few seconds of us together on our first dance.
I also know we had 2 videographers – one with me during our post-ceremony photos and the other stayed to be with people during the reception. There’s nothing of that. It’s almost as if I had one person based on the video.
There’s a few other things like this that I’m just confused about.. We had meetings before to discuss what I cared about, but we did get them as vendors about a month and a half before the wedding instead of say months before… that was bc I wasn’t sure I could afford video and I decided to do it near the end. So I don’t know if we maybe should have spoken more or they should have asked more info of me to edit.
Any advice on how to give them feedback? or ask about edits?
It may just be we need to re-clarify some things we want and as far as I’ve worked with these two they are super nice so here’s hoping it goes smoothly.
