Communicate ahead of time on your expectations and ask questions on how they plan to work with one another on your wedding day. On the wedding day both your wedding videographer and photographer will communicate their process or how they take their shots. Typically, in the wedding industry the photographers will take the lead and the videographers will follow that.
