For the bride and groom to be, choosing a wedding photographer has always been a last minute task that should be researched thoroughly. In more recent times, the wedding videographer has become almost as popular and should be given as much thought.
In choosing a videographer, one that would be working on my wedding, I'd be most concerned with one thing, experience. The person behind the camera would have to prove to me that he's not practicing his craft on my special day, that he knows what he's doing and is capable of being creative as well as detail oriented. Many amateur videographers or those that are trying to get into the business start out by working on weddings, and like in most things, you learn from your mistakes. Unfortunately they make mistakes on somebody's wedding day, a day that unlike TV and movies, cannot be recreated.
