Your Destination Wedding Day Wish List

I love watching destination wedding videos!  For instance, the music, the tears of joy, the wedding kiss and beautiful vacation backdrop, just to name a few. All couples want their wedding memories freeze-framed to last a lifetime. So, first and foremost you’ll want to compare wedding videos to get a feel for what you love. Secondly, you’ll want to create a list of what to ask your videographer. Now come the timeline and music choices. Lastly, and most importantly, you’ll want to combine all of the above using the help of a very knowledgeable and experienced videographer. As a seasoned travel agent, I’ve worked with hundreds of destination wedding couples.  Below are my six best hacks to make your wedding video vision a treasured memory. –Your Destination Wedding Day–

As mentioned above, you’ll want to put your wedding in the hands of a very experienced wedding videographer. The tried and truly videographers will happily provide you with a list of their most recent work. An even better company will proudly feature their best work on their website.  My Love Films. By reviewing wedding videos of their former clients, you can get some inspiration for what you like best. I love having examples of great work, such as My Love Films, to showcase to my clients. It’s so reassuring to see the previous work of the videographer. Most importantly, because most of our clients aren’t able to meet their wedding videographer until they are in destination. If the budget allows, I also recommend booking your photographer and videographer with the same company. It creates impressive synchronicity during your wedding day events taking away any worries about your wedding day story.

Because I have worked extensively with wedding couples over the years, I’ve learned a thing or two about what brides want. Most importantly, what takeaways they cherish most from their wedding day events. Whether walking down the aisle, or the ceremony kiss. These as well as other key moments vitally important to capture. Some golden moments you’ll want to consider are reception speeches. You never know what’s coming and many speeches are talked about for years to come. Not to mention capturing your very special first dance as a married couple.  And how fun is capturing that funny and often very memorable cutting of the cake. If the budget allows you’ll also want to consider adding in some family and friends, best wishes. In conclusion, your videographer will be your best resource in finding out what is most essential for you when you want to relive your fairytale wedding day.

Videographers – Who to Hire

There are a plethora of options out there when hiring a videographer. Especially in the Cancun and Riviera Maya region, where we do the majority of our weddings.  Riviera Maya Weddings and  Cancun Weddings. Photography and videography are one of the first questions my bride ask about once their wedding is booked.  Having a local videographer in your destination of choice is highly recommended. Be sure to work with a reputable destination wedding specialist planner, who can provide a list of preferred vendors. It’s a great way to help narrow down your videographer choices. Consideration of their style is another way to find out if the videographer is the right choice for you. Reputable photographers such as My Love Films are a superior company and one that comes highly recommended by (Liz Moore destination Weddings).

Most importantly, find out if your favorite videographer is available on your wedding date. With so many resorts available in the Cancun/Riviera Maya area, the best of the best get booked well in advance. As a travel agent, it’s one of the very first suggestions I advise my clients after they choose their wedding venue and resort. After that, your videography budget is a good idea to sort out early as well. How many hours would you like your wedding filmed? Having a running list of your wish list against the costs of hours filmed is fantastic to know early on. Of course, I always recommend increasing the budget bit for both photography and videography. There are always special moments you’ll want a little wiggle room price-wise as you get closer to the date.

Nothing puts memories in a music video like the music itself, don’t you agree. I love listening to music along as I  relive the wedding festivities. Your wedding videographer is the most valuable resource when it comes to choosing your music. They can offer great suggestions for popular playlists. They know the trends and the tried and true emotion invoking songs.   If you are keeping your wedding video, you may be ok with choosing certain popular music.

Once you have a general idea of costs, it’s time to set up a call with your favourite videographer. Skype, facetime and WhatsApp are great ways to see your videographer in person. Similarly, it allows you to build a repore and see if this is the videographer for you. I can’t emphasize enough here that having a bit of a cushion in your budget for extras is highly recommended.
