How to choose the PERFECT music for your wedding films!

Today I am very excited to share with you a tutorial that has taken me many years of experience filming weddings to learn. In this video, I am going to share with you how I choose the perfect music for my wedding films. Songs that fit the bride and groom, their wedding day, and their style perfectly. No matter whether you are a beginner wedding filmmaker that is getting ready to film their first wedding, or you have been shooting weddings for years, I believe that there will be something in this video that will help you. I’ll be covering:

  • The EXACT questions that I use to guide the conversation with the bride and groom and learn their favorite songs, musical genres, bands, and more importantly: their musical dislikes.
  • What story I tell to educate brides and grooms about music copyright.
  • Steps to avoid major music mistakes that could (gasp!) ruin your films and even your business.
  • How to reassure the couple that they can trust your creativity (with music, with everything).
  • Plus gobs of little secrets and tips about every aspect of my music selection process!

By the end of watching this video, you will be prepared to select music for your wedding films that will satisfy you creatively, and give your couples a video that they will love and cherish forever. And please be on the lookout for my next tutorial, all about the music licensing sites that I use for my wedding films.
