You're the star of your wedding day-it only makes sense to star in your own wedding feature film. Columbus videographers create works of art that showcase the love, emotion and excitement of your big day.

No longer does capturing a wedding on film mean a jerky, pixelated video shot by the family member who owns a camera. Today's wedding videographers produce beautifully told wedding stories that are worthy of the silver screen.

"It's really like watching a movie of your own wedding," says Andrea Campbell, who married Matthew on July 14, 2012. "It doesn't even feel like it's my life in this video because it looks so much like a professional movie."

"Back in the day it was all templates with cheesy graphics, but I'd say within the last five to seven years it's transitioned to picking out your own music with custom graphics," says Julie Hedrick of Blue Skies HD Video & Film Production. "No two videos look alike because they're being produced in a way that's very unique to the wedding day."

Choosing a videographer is the most important step toward getting the video that best represents your relationship. And getting to know the videographer is a vital part of the process.

Kyle Muza of Little Tree Studios says her company gives couples a questionnaire asking questions like "What would you do if you had an eighth day of the week?" and "What's your favorite thing to do together on Sunday mornings?" She'll also go to dinner or a baseball game with the couple in order to get to know them better.

"Our videos are not necessarily about a wedding but about our clients on their wedding day," Muza says.

Most wedding videographers have multiple videos to view on their website, and once you've sat down with them you'll want to ask a variety of questions, including:

h How much cover time and how many videographers are included in the package?

h Will the video be shot in HD or standard definition?

h What type of editing will be done in postproduction?

It's also a good idea to make sure the videographer is using licensed music. Muza says you don't want to risk being sued or having your wedding video confiscated because you're using songs illegally.

Wedding videography can cost anywhere from $1,500 to $6,000-it all depends on the type of package and coverage you're looking for. And though it may be tempting to ask a friend or family member with some video experience to film your big day, be aware you may not like what you see after the party ends.
