To film or not to film.
Do I really need a videographer to document my wedding? I mean, I just spent a lot of money on a good photographer! Let's talk through a few reasons why brides feel its absolutely necessary to hire a videographer.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, what is a video worth? It's true, video provides motion throughout the day unlike that of a photo. Think about the emotions filmed as you walk down the ceremony aisle, your first kiss, or as you get on the dance floor with your new husband. These moments and memories captured are priceless and become valuable with time.
Imagine being able to hear your vowels as you read them. Or even hearing your Dad's toast. The true value is when these artifacts are replayed 5, 10 and 15 years from now. It is a beautiful thing to have the ability to hear loved ones, who may or may not be with us, dancing, smiling and even just hearing their voices. While photo provides beautiful still images, film is able to provide the sense of sound unlike that of photography. These moments can be relived and heard just the way they happened on your wedding day.
One day your kids are going to want to see Mom + Dad's wedding. What better way to show them then to break out the popcorn and throw your highlight reel on the TV. We actually watch our video every anniversary. And yes, we laugh, smile and cry every time.
Family that Couldn't Make It
For family who is unable to attend because they live in another country or maybe they were under the weather, a video is a great way to share your wedding with them. They will be able to see, hear and feel all of the emotions and joy that filled your wedding day.
Ask any friend who was on the fence about hiring a videographer, Did they regret not having their wedding filmed? Chances are the answer is YES! Don't make the same mistake.
