Videography services generally include an initial planning meeting, onsite setup with a range of equipment, filming your event or promotion, and then delivering raw or edited files. But the specific process and inclusions depend on the type of filming you need:Wedding videography
Capture every moment on the happiest (and busiest) day of your life. Your videographer will meet with you at least a few weeks before your big day to talk about the moments you want captured - details like getting ready, venue features, guests arriving, and the bridegroom’s reaction when his bride walks down the aisle. Some wedding videographers will bring a second shooter to capture in multiple location or angles. You can request all the raw footage of your event, or you can get your videographer to edit and produce a short video that shows all the key moments and details - perfect for sharing on Facebook and Instagram with any friends or family who couldn’t make it. Real estate videography
Real estate videography is becoming a popular service for high-end properties to help showcase their best features and drive more traffic online - and to open homes. Your videographer will use a range of techniques and equipment to create a virtual tour of the home - both inside and out. This might include an intro from the property agent, smooth videography in each room, and drone photography to capture the scale and beauty of the surroundings.Marketing videography
Marketing videos are becoming essential for brands who want to get noticed online. Hire a professional videographer to capture interviews, presentations, instructional videos, product demonstrations, and more. They’ll bring along equipment like professional cameras, lapel microphones, backdrops, props, and lighting to help create a studio environment onsite. They’ll capture your footage and edit it so it’s ready to be used on social media, your website, YouTube, and even in your advertising.Event videography
A videographer can help you capture and livestream your event on social media, or professionally record key moments so you can use or replay them later on. They’ll bring event-ready equipment like video cameras, tripods, lighting, and microphones to ensure a high-quality capture. You can request raw footage to be repurposed for a variety of platforms or get your videographer to edit the content so it’s ready to be shared as marketing or education pieces.Video editing and post-production
Most videography services include editing and post-production, but you may also get a videographer to work with existing raw footage to produce an edited video. You may need to deliver the raw content to them on a USB device if it’s a large file - if you hire a videographer near you, you can do this in person, but otherwise, you’ll need to use snail mail. Your videographer will use advanced video editing software like Adobe Premiere Pro to produce and edit your videos. They may cut longer videos up into smaller pieces for social media, or edit together different short takes to create a more engaging story. They’ll produce your video in multiple file formats depending on how you plan to use it, and either deliver it digitally or via USB, depending on the file size and internet speeds available.
