There are many factors to consider in your search for a videographer. Here are some of the most common things to watch out for and ask about:

Inexperience – Not everyone with a camera is a videographer

Low-grade equipment – A video is only as good as the footage and audio it has to work with

Disorganized/Unprepared – Missing important moments, needing to switch out batteries, etc

Being obtrusive and “in your face” – Makes people uncomfortable

Shakey shots – Improperly framed shots, not panning smoothly

Cheesy Editing – Page turns, wipes, distracting transitions, dated music

Creating videos that look outdated – Distracting transitions, lots of zooming rather than panning, odd music selections
