But the most important people that I think any wedding videographers must get to know is the cordinators and wedding planners. 90% of every business that I have received is through these people. The bride and groom ussually sit and consult their needs to these fine organizers long before they decide whose catering, flower arrangments, photographers and who’s doing the video. They can help in a whole host of items and issues. From where your allowed to shoot (there are rules in some churches), directions to locations, who you need to know about sound and lighting, even whether or not your allowed to go through the buffet line, trust me wedding cordinators can make your day easy. And, they can set you up for the next event with little effort on your part. If you have established relations with as many cordinators as you can in your area you may never have to commute very far.
I agree. Networking with wedding coordinators is perhaps the best thing you can do for your business. I’m not sure I agree entirely with the comment that only less talented videographers continue doing weddings. Some actually do it because they like it. Though, for the most part, it’s probably true that the most talented move on to other things because that’s where the money is.
