How Early Should You Book A Videographer For Your Destin Wedding?

Dalton Young Films providing photography for Destin wedding.

You are now engaged, and you ask yourself, ‘When is the best time to hire a wedding videographer for my Destin Florida wedding’ (or other local towns). The correct answer would be around the same time as the photographer, which means about a year to a year and a half before the big day (hence Dalton Young Weddings offering both Destin Wedding Photography and Video.) Of course, this depends on how much importance you give to your videography collection, finding the best Destin wedding videographer to give you an incredible wedding day experience, and also whether you are local to the Destin market, or traveling from out of town.

A videography team that is in high demand often indicates outstanding production values. This includes the use of excellent equipment and suggests that there will be at least a couple of team members, sometimes both videographers and photographers. A good local wedding videographer will create a unique experience for their couples, and the memories they capture on film will last forever.

This is why, even if you are having a Destin wedding, or one somewhere else in the world, you must book well in advance to guarantee an amazing experience. As a full-time videography and photography team, we only take on a limited number of weddings per year, so we would suggest you inquire just after you secure your date and venue. Due to the demand for our services, we are typically booked up to 9-15 months in advance. 

Many couples are disappointed when they discover that the best wedding photographers and destination wedding videographers are already booked when they procrastinate on hiring the perfect vendors. To avoid stressful situations and spread out financial investments, make sure you make this booking at least one year in advance if possible. It’s a fact that if you are planning a destination wedding, you should book even earlier because the best wedding videographers and award-winning wedding vendors tend to take on only a select number of weddings per year to ensure the highest quality for those who ultimately value their wedding day experience (as opposed to the “How much does Destin wedding videography cost?” and “What does my wedding video package include?” mindset).

Our videography team commits to a limited number of luxury weddings each year, and only a handful of international weddings annually. The reason behind this is simple- we want to ensure your destination wedding film perfectly fits your needs and wishes, as well as aligns with our high-quality wedding film portfolio which we invest countless hours into perfecting.

So, in other words, this doesn’t mean that you should procrastinate and wait until the last minute to book your Florida wedding videographer if you are hosting a Florida wedding. You deserve to have a phenomenal experience and find the quality you deserve, all while also maintaining an investment that you both are comfortable with. I promise you, you don’t want to risk not having a wedding videographer, or a low-quality wedding video collection because you waited until the last minute to book your wedding vendor, and all the talented videography teams were already booked. Many couples are getting married in Destin Florida, and the majority of them are searching for photographers and videographers who will provide the best service and most impressive results. 

We always recommend booking a wedding videographer, whether you book with us or not. You will cherish it forever and if you ask any of our past clients, they will tell you it is a must-have for your wedding day as it will become a blur the day after. It just goes by so fast. Inquiring about a videographer at least 15 months before you tie the knot is almost a guarantee for a stunning wedding film. When hiring, you should also consider other factors to find the perfect videographer for your wedding. We have a Free Guide to help with this called ‘Top 5 Tips To Hire The Perfect Wedding Videographer.’ If you are, for example, from Florida or Alabama and you have decided to go for a local wedding, booking your local wedding videographer in time will allow you to build a strong connection with them as well, having an engagement session will help you feel comfortable as well if you book far enough out for a Save the Date Wedding film to compliment your Destin Engagement Photography. 

The team will have enough time to get to know you and pay attention to details that are special to your relationship so that they can capture those moments that truly make the wedding film unique to you as a couple.

If you are looking for a Destin wedding videographer for a Florida wedding or even for a destination event, then get in touch with us at Dalton Young Weddings. As mentioned before, whether or not you choose to work with us or not, we are more than happy to help you throughout the entire planning process to make the best recommendations for your planning your first event or planning a destination wedding from out-of-state, which can already be a challenge. We are here to help you no matter what!
