Make sure you really like their previous stories
It’s not just how well you connect with a specific videographer. Connection can mean so little if their work isn’t exceptional. Watch some of their recent and old work, understand how far they’ve progressed and understand how they tell each story. See if that is how you want your story to be told.

You want your story to be unique, you need to find someone who has a number of stories being told in very diverse ways. You need someone who can make you cry or tear watching a completely unknown persons wedding. If you find that person, you’ve got it all.
