The internet is likely the best way to find a good wedding videographer. Using search engines you can type in key search phrases that will bring up videographers in the geographic area you are interest in. Once you are on a videographer’s web site you can often view sample videos. Sometimes these videos are fairly long to watch, so you may want to skip through the videos and check out the quality of the content. Remember that many of these videos are streaming from a compressed version of the actual video. So the actual video should be higher quality. The main idea is to watch for the style of the wedding video. Also on the website you may be able to find out more about the videographer under an “about us” type page. This is a good way to get to know a little bit about a wedding videographer before you contact them to schedule their services. The good thing about the web is that you can visit many wedding video sites in a very short period of time.

Most of the times wedding vendors who offer services will have a packet of other vendors they recommend. They often do it as a service to their clients and may not even be earn monetarily from these packets. Many of these vendors have met many wedding videographers or worked with many videographers. They are a good source to ask because they will recommend a videographer from first hand experience.
Ask your photographer. Many times photographers will have a videographer they will recommend. The two wedding services are tied together in many ways. The videographer will work closely with the photographer during the wedding day, so they usually get to know each other fairly well. Also a photographer will be able to recognize a good videographer better than most other people. Even if you receive a recommendation you should still visit the videographer’s website and view their sample videos.
Wedding facilities or resorts will often host weddings several times a week. They have many videographers come through their facility. They usually gain relationships with the best videographers and may even offer package deals including the wedding videographer and other videos.

These are a few of the best ways to find a good videographer. Regardless of the way you decide to find a videographer, make sure you view their sample videos.
