When it comes to hiring a wedding filmmaker for your wedding, most wedding couple will want to hire videographer of their budget.
For actual wedding day wedding filming, you need at least 8 hours. Normally 5 hours is allocated for the morning till noon and another 3 hours for the wedding dinner banquet. The most videographer will cover tell the wedding speech and leave the group portrait to the photographer .
For solemnization, you may only need half day like 3 to 4 hours as the duration is much shorter. Share with the videography more about your special day and let them know what do you want to focus more on. Is it the moment, the behind scene set up or any special surprise.
