So, you just got engaged - Congratulations! Whether you’ve already decided on a videographer/cinematographer or are still unsure about the topic. To bring you up to date, here is some insight on the latest trends by Abhishek Tiwari
 
Abhishek photographs wedding all over India and abroad. He recently bagged a Swarovski trophy for "Best Wedding Moments” - Cinematography at GIWA 2016. GIWA is one of the the most prestigious award ceremony which is part of International Convention of Wedding Fraternity (ICWF). 
 
Here are a few advances in the wedding videos which has come a long way over the last few years:
 
Cinematic Video
No more setting the camera on a tripod and letting it roll. A cinematic style wedding video captures every detail from virtually every angle. Having multiple cameras to capture the same scene allows to get more creative and shoot from unexpected angles which makes a world of difference in the final output. A mix of color and black-and-white footage adds glamour to this timeless film style.
 
Picture Quality
With high-def wedding video you’ll see that the quality is incredibly sharp and amazingly clear. The digital revolution has enabled shooting your wedding in almost the same image quality as it is being used in any Hollywood movies today. 
 
Wedding Documentary
A documentary-style wedding video is “in" these days. This is a mix of artistic, unconventional angles and sound bites or interviews of bride, groom, family, friends or any guest from your wedding day. This is one of the best ways to convey what it was like to actually be part of the wedding. The idea is to tell the story of your special day by capturing the  moments, and the essence of the person in those moments. 
 
Wedding Teaser
No one has time to watch a 3-4 hours long wedding video anymore. Entire wedding video’s duration including all the ceremonies is about 30-40 minutes these days. And in addition to that an even smaller version of 4-5 minutes video, which is almost like a movie trailer that captures essential highlights of the wedding. After all it is about quality over quantity.
 
Video Editing
Video editing can make or break the video. Editor’s skills and artistry is very important for the final video’s outcome. When creating a film with this style, more time is spent in the editing room (which means the prices likely to be more costly than traditional videos), but payoff is tremendous in the product!
 
Music
Another significant of the wedding video is music. Understanding the mood, tempo, beats, lyrics and the overall feel of the music and then appropriately matching it with the visuals is paramount. So sense of music is definitely another skill set that you should be looking in an editor.
 
The list can go on but these are the absolutely necessary trends and techniques you need to be aware of when hiring a videographer/cinematographer. Good luck finding the right fit to document your big day!
