You can also interview the ones that seem to have potential. You should even ask to see a reel of their prior work.

Prices.
Look around and price shop. Cross off selections based on prices beyond your budget and begin to come up with a short list of likely videographers. You can also negotiate prices and have videographers bidding to get the job.

Credentials.
Further research will uncover if the videographers are part of a larger group or union of videographers. Picking a videographer with proper credentials will give you more confidence and you will have one less thing to worry about on your big day.
