Choosing Your Videography Team
Selecting the right wedding videographer is a hugely important decision – you want an experienced team you connect with creatively and can trust to film your special day flawlessly. That is why asking the right questions upfront is key to determining the perfect match. Here are some of the most essential wedding video questions to ask potential videographers.
What is Your Filming and Editing Style?
There are different styles of wedding videography – cinematic, documentary, glamour, etc. Ask Grace and Motion about our signature style and see sample videos to ensure they align with your vision. You’ll be watching this video for a lifetime, so you must love your videographer’s aesthetic. Also, ask us how we approach editing to bring out the emotions of the day.
What Equipment Do You Use?
Grace and Motion wedding videographers use top-of-the-line equipment suitable for professional cinematography work, like mirrorless cameras with high-end lenses and stabilisers. Make sure to ask Grace and Motion what specific equipment we use so you can research the quality should you wish to do so. Using cinema-grade cameras, audio gear, and editing software ensures spectacular results.
How Do You Work With Natural Light?
Lighting is so important for visual appeal. Grace and Motion’s techniques, such as scheduling events around optimal lighting, using reflectors and diffusers on-site, and colour correction during editing, all add to beautiful images.
How Do You Capture Audio?
Sound is the most difficult part of our job. Crisp, well-balanced audio is just as crucial as stunning video. Ask us about the microphones, audio recorders, lav mics, and editing practices we use to achieve clear sound. Grace and Motion actively monitors levels and utilises multiple audio sources for the cleanest possible results.

Do You Have Liability Insurance?
Reputable wedding videography studios carry liability insurance to cover mishaps. Ask Grace and Motion for proof of insurance so you have peace of mind. You want to confirm your wedding is protected in case of damaged property, injuries, or other incidents. As for us, yes, we have liability cover for up to 10 million pounds.
