Many Colorado Photographers offer Videography, and many Videographers offer Photography, so why is it so important to have a team?
First of all, what makes a good photo and video team?
A good photo and video team is a group of professionals operating with communication, collaboration, and respect. This could be a husband and wife team, a photographer and videographer that have worked together before, or (in our case) a company of professionals that have shot dozens of events together. It’s essential that your photographer and videographer work together, or your photos and videos will suffer as a result. Let’s dive into some of the reasons why this is true.
Every wedding and event photographer or videographer has their own style which is what makes them unique! Having a photographer and videographer on the same team makes for a smooth process of pre-event planning, day of, and post production. Having to deal with one photo and video contact makes the creative aspect of planning and production SO much easier.
Yes, photographers and videographers have egos. Sometimes those big personalities that create some of your favorite images don’t mesh well with others- especially another professional they’ve never worked with before. Having a wedding or event photographer and videographer that knows each other’s workflow and is familiar (and friendly) can make all the difference in the quality of both the wedding or event photos and videos.
Things happen leading up to your big event, and on the day of. It’s great to know you can lean on your photographer or videographer partner for a lens, a battery, an extra SD card, or just some help with your light stands in a time crunch! Most of our team at All Digital Photo and Video is cross trained, and can also jump in as a photographer or videographer if needed!
When you’ve worked with another event professional enough times, you can almost operate exclusively on non-verbal communication (which can be very important from across a quiet ceremony during an important moment). A photo or video partner that can update you when the timeline changes, collaborate with you on ideas, and stay out of your shots is mutually beneficial to all parties, especially the client.
