The joyful tears from grandma, hugs with the friend you can’t live without, a proud glance between parents. These are a few moments in time that a wedding content creator (WCC) will capture. But not every creator has the same style, process, vibes or standards. If you’re considering adding this vendor to your day-of media team, ask these five questions first.

1. What’s your turnaround time?

Most content creators deliver footage within 24-48 hours, which is considerably less time then you’ll wait on professional photography or videography — making it the perfect add-on to your day-of media team. Be sure you thoroughly read through the contract before you sign to confirm not only when your WCC will share the album, but how — whether that be via iCloud, Dropbox, etc.

2. Do you have a limited liability coverage policy?

It’s always recommended (by wedding planners and venues alike) to hire vendors that not only are a legal business but one that’s covered by insurance. Trust me, you’ll be glad you did.

3. Do you have a contingency plan in place?

The last thing a couple expects is for a vendor to become sick or injured before their wedding and unable to follow through with their commitment. But the risk is always there. Booking with someone you not only trust, but who is prepared for the “what if” moments is essential. Ask me about my contingency plan(s) during our discovery call for peace of mind.

4. How many hours do I *actually* need a content creator for?

Choosing how many hours to book a wedding content creator depends on what you value most. It might be the getting ready moments with your wedding party — or the actual party that happens after you say “I do”. My most popular package is six hours, which typically allows for 30 minutes of getting ready footage, the first look and/or ceremony highlights and a kick off to the reception (think first dance). However, if you want other dances or speeches captured, I recommend the 8-hour package. Additional coverage means more time for me to document the details and any special add-ons, like interviewing your bridesmaids/groomsmen/family members (which can be SUCH a cute video montage!)

5. What can I expect throughout the process?

Anyone can create content on your wedding day. Not everyone can stay in lockstep with your day-of media team, maintain clear communication, capture unique angles and create a captivating highlight video. But it goes beyond that. Your wedding content creator might take it one step further (hint: we do) to walk through a thought provoking questionnaire before you book, meet virtually or in-person to review final details and timeline, connect with a client’s day-of media team and over prepare for the day of (backup phone, chargers, ring light and gimbal are a must!).

Your wedding day will go by in the blink of an eye, and having someone there to capture its entirety means you get to unplug and take it all in. It also takes the pressure off having one of your loved ones be responsible for the iPhone footage.
