When booking a San Francisco wedding photographer, you look for one that understands light, emotion, posing, but most importantly, you search for someone who has an amazing personality. These skills are equally important when looking for a wedding videographer, but you must take it a step further. In addition to the qualifications above, a good wedding videographer needs to also understand sound, story, editing, motion, pacing, and music. The best wedding videographers understand that video offers the story behind a photograph. You’ll see a photo of your mother crying, but the video will show you the moment and story behind that tear. In a picture, you’ll see your dad laughing at a speech, but in the video, you’ll hear the audio that made him laugh.
We know photography is a timeless art and must-have for couples. What we also know is that videography is the best medium to complement it, so you can hear the stories, relive the laughs, and cry all over again.
When searching for a San Francisco wedding videographer, you’ll find many styles. Modern, clean, edgy, hipster, slow-paced, upbeat, etc. We recommend going to a few videographers’ blogs and viewing at least five recent videos. Most wedding videographers will put their best work on their homepages, but it’s essential to see recent work. By viewing these five videos in a row, you’ll pick up on their style and tendencies. You’ll also notice what makes us different.
Our focus is always on the couple. We strive to create unique videos that aren’t cookie cutter. We do this by blending artistic angles with unique stories. Each wedding may follow a similar timeline, but each couple is different. You’ll find a lot of dramatic videos and ones that feel staged, but we tend to focus on real moments that make your video feel unique to you.
