Shortlist at least 3 videographers, check their sample videos and compare their work and prices. Don’t forget to inspect their equipment too, as some cameras and the like may not be appropriate for a big event like a wedding.

Always ask to see a full wedding sample! This means a DVD/BluRay or online gallery of a wedding that was what the couple actually received. Listen for the quality of audio, the quality of video (especially during the reception) and make sure you like their style of shooting and editing. Ask them what type of cameras, lighting, and microphone systems they use. For example, if they don't bring lighting and your reception will be after dark, you won't have any useful reception footage. Off camera lighting is what you really want because it is not moving around and blinding your guests. Audio is also SO important, and many pros don't do a good job with it, if they use it at all!

Personality is as important as your videographer's work and gear. You want to find someone that matches your style and will be fun to hang out with on your big day. In addition, I agree with the other answers. Be sure to view a full feature film, not just the highlights trailer. This allows you to compare the big picture and get a better feel for the quality and style of your full DVDs.
