Videography is one of those wedding expenses that many people say they can do without, yet those couples who do hire a videographer always rave about how happy they are to have that additional coverage. While your wedding photographer will certainly capture important moments from the day, there’s just nothing like watching it all on video, too. If you decide you have the budget for a videographer, here are a handful of questions to ask the vendors you meet with.

How many cameras will be on us?
