| p.2 #4 · Videographers and the "swing around the couple 2 ft away" shot. Advice? |
There is NO WAY to have two "directors" an the wedding day - one vendor has to give up his/her role. Me, personally, I'm happy to let the photog run the day, as my video style is strictly documentary.
But the best solution to this is to get your own video team, and offer both services to your clients. Then you can coordinate work of the whole team (photo and video) much more easier.
Just wanted to chime in, having had some truly horrible experiences with videographers that this is the only way to avoid problems with videographers in the long run. And yeah, our video guys tell us it works both ways.
At a recent one we even had an uncle bob videographer (friend of the couple apparently) that got in a lot of key ritual shots that can't be repeated because he wanted to stay in their face with an ultra wide lens. Since we've linked up with one videography team that we like and only work with them.
It's really important to find someone with similar styles of shooting so that you can gel with them. So far we couldn't be happier about our decision. Now we just need to keep reminding couples about their guests Bob'in all over the place.
