How Photographers And Videographers Work Together On Your Wedding Day


For photographers and videographers, the ability to work together is critical. Here are three ways your photographer and videographer can work well together.

How Photographers And Videographers Work Together On Your Wedding Day

It’s about communication

“It’s mainly about talking with each other,” said Complete Weddings + Events Photographer Liz Lopez. “I can remember this one videographer that was just always in my way.” Complete videographer Minh Nguyen agrees. “I explain how I’m going to get the shot so they know what I’m about to do. That way I’m not in their way and vice versa. But usually, I let them take the lead and just work around them,” said Minh. When it comes to Complete Weddings + Events, the general rule of thumb is ‘Photographers lead. Videographers follow’.

Help each other

“If I have someone (with me) I’ve worked with before we can get the best lighting and help each other get the best shot,” said Complete Photographer Kate Duran. It helps to know whether your photographer and videographer are familiar with one another and like working together. If both are from Complete then that’s a given!

Be ready for the key moments together

According to Complete videographer John Ortiz, every moment is important, but some are critical. “During pre-ceremony shooting (the ‘getting ready’ shots) it’s really important to work together to get the best shots and place (the bride or groom) in the best location and lighting because that’s the first thing that happens in the day,” said John. Setting the tone for the day is so important to your Complete team that checking in with you and your other vendors is the first thing we do when we arrive.

When assembling your team of wedding vendors it is so important to consider the chemistry between you can expect to see on your wedding day.
