Finding Quality Music : Wedding Video Songs
A good song can really elevate a wedding video. Chances are that if you found this page you are either a wedding videographer or a bride/groom taking interest in the final product to be delivered to you. Either way, we welcome you. I will list some of the best songs I’ve ever found to use for my wedding videography, but first I want to give you some ideas about how to find new and fresh wedding music.
Finding New Wedding Video Music
Another great place to find new music that nobody else is using is on Pandora. If you are not familiar with Pandora, and that is unlikely, let’s think about what Pandora does. It plays music similar to the song of your choice. So, I can assume you already know a few tracks that you really like and work well for making awesome cinematic wedding video’s. Plug those tracks into Pandora, or the ones below, make a new station, and listen while you are at work, at home, or on the go. inevitably you are going to find some new artists and songs that will work perfectly in your wedding video’s.There are two places where I have found a majority of the music I use in my wedding video’s. The first is on television. With an app like Shazaam and a keen ear you would be amazed at all the good music you will hear-ready for this-in commercials. Car commercials especially have great soundtracks if you stop and listen. If you have DVR this process gets even easier because you can rewind your TV and replay the commercial and run your Shazaam app on your smartphone. The people that make these professional video’s on television are just that; professionals, and there are dozens of people working on the audio engineering so you can be sure that the music choices will be solid.
