How to Pick the Vendors for Your Wedding
We know how difficult it can be to plan a wedding because we've done it in 2022! That's why we have decided to give you some insight and help with this weekly series! Every Monday we will highlight another one of the very important vendors that make a seamless and stunning wedding day come to life!
This week we want to introduce you to Daree Wynn of Wynn Media. Daree is a wildly talented Asheville, NC-based Videographer with a passion for capturing authentic moments, emotions, and love stories.
We have had the immense pleasure to work alongside Daree and have seen how he works firsthand. Daree is not only there on the wedding day to be a Videographer (Although he does that very well!) he is also a friend to vendors, the couple, family, and honestly anyone who was present!
That's why we are very excited to showcase Wynn Media along with getting some major insight into wedding day videography!
What is Wedding Videography?
Unlike Photography where you get lots of beautiful wedding images, a videographer creates one beautifully curated masterpiece to encapsulate the emotions of the entire day. This is a monumental responsibility because you only get one opportunity so it's critical to find someone whose work you genuinely enjoy and whom you have full confidence in!
Choosing the Videographer for Your Day.
"You become more than just a company and a client, you become friends, and a part of each other's lives forever! A lot of emotion and dedication goes into what we do. It's more than just being there on the day, it's immersing yourself in the atmosphere. I get emotional at every single wedding!! I truly do love the craft and love trying to improve with each and every day I get."- Daree. This quote from Daree made such a beautiful sentiment to the delicate creative nature of wedding day videographers. It makes an important point to choose someone not based on price or location but on someone who you enjoy because you will spend a lot of time with them between detail meetings, the day of, and during the post-production.
Picking Your Videographer
In picking a videographer Daree pointed out how important it is to find someone who is a professional in their business practices like having a contract or agreement but also someone is who trying new things and learning constantly. Art is subjective but as long as a videographer can consistently demonstrate their creative prowess and ability to learn new things they are a professional.
Get to Know Daree Wynn
"Hello! My name is Daree Wynn, I'm 26 years old and I was born and raised in Asheville, NC! I've always been into the arts, starting with the chorus in middle school. I come from a family of musicians, singers, and painters so I always knew I was meant to be in the arts. I would record videos of myself singing and my friends all the way back in high school! I always knew I loved to be around cameras but didn't take it seriously until I bought my first camera in 2020. Amazingly enough, just about a month after purchasing my camera, I was blessed with an opportunity to shoot a wedding for a friend from high school! It turned out much better than I could have imagined and kick-started my business to where I am today." - Daree Wynn
