So you’ve researched and hired a photographer to document your wedding day, and now you’re tossing up whether it’s worth the extra expense of hiring a professional wedding videographer. With an abundance of editing options now available at the click of a mouse, video professionals can capture your special day in a creative and polished video that you’ll be proud to show off for years to come. Still not convinced? Here are a few reasons why hiring a professional to video your wedding is a great idea!

Capture the memories

Ask any married couple what they remember about their wedding day, and most will tell you all the months of careful planning and building excitement came together in a day that flew by in a happy blur. A wedding video will provide a record of every detail of your day from the minute you begin preparations until you say good bye at the reception. It’s a permanent reminder of your special day that you can sit down and watch time and time again.

View missing moments

Unfortunately there will be moments of your wedding day that you won’t see in person. For example, you won’t witness your groom’s nervousness as he waits for you to arrive at the wedding venue, and he won’t see the moment you’re buttoned into your bridal gown, glowing and ready to be married. These moments are precious and endearing, and a wedding video is the ideal way for you to experience the moments that you won’t see first hand.

Listen to your wedding day

While photographs are perfect for capturing the sights of your big day, a wedding video also captures the sounds. You can experience again the exchanging of the vows, the thoughtful speeches, the high-spirited laughter and even the beat of the music that played while you danced your first dance with your new husband.

Capture the details

When you hire a professional wedding videographer, you’re hiring more than a person who owns an expensive camera, you’re hiring experience. Years of knowledge mean they know the best approach, the best angles, the best vantage points, and their professional camera is designed to capture the smallest detail in high definition. A professionally created wedding video will document your big day in far greater detail than static photography alone.

Future generations

Your wedding video is a wonderful gift to pass onto your children and grandchildren. Imagine how delighted you might feel if wedding videographers were available in your grandparent’s era, and you now had possession of their wedding video to see exactly how their day came together. At the very least, your wedding video may give future generations a bit of a giggle!

Relieve your guests of the responsibility

Hiring a professional to video your wedding allows your guests to have fun with their own video cameras without the obligation of perfectly filming every detail of your day. This means that your family and friends can relax and enjoy the celebrations with you.

So when you’re working out your wedding budget, remember to include money for a wedding videographer. Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, and capturing it on video will enable you to relive the excitement and happiness in the years to come.

A Wedding Video: Picture Perfect

With most weddings these days comes a wedding photographer to snap you against the gorgeous backdrops of the day. And while many couples are happy to settle with an album of memories, more and more are choosing to also have their day recorded by video. Nothing quite captures the mood, feeling, tears (happy tears of course!) and laughter of the most special of days.

A professionally shot video can provide a lifetime of memories. The days of grainy home video are long gone. With crisp images, crystal clear audio and even editing functions if you desire, you’ll have your own romantic movies on hand. Every moment of your special day can be relived and will provide the perfect excuse for a glass of champagne and some unashamed romance each anniversary.

Should you choose to include a video of your day, a professional will ensure your end product is a quality memento that perfectly reflects the day. Not everyone will provide the same end product, so it makes sense to look around first and make enquiries of those whose work appeals to you. Make an appointment to discuss all aspects: what sort of look you are after, what is included, even if you’d like a soundtrack of music included. You’ll also need to confirm how much of the day you’d like videoed. They can be with you from dusk to dawn if desired. It’s also important to ask how long it will take to receive the video footage after the wedding day.

A wedding video can be more than just a way to re-live your own memories – it’s perfect if you have relatives and friends overseas. They may not be able to make it to your big day, but being able to watch it will allow them to share in your joy.

Introducing MMG Photo + Cinema

Finding the right photographer can be one of the most important things you plan for your wedding. Long after the day is over, you will have the photographs to remember all of the little details and to show children and grandchildren your special moment.

The best place to start evaluating a photographer is by taking a visit to their website. They should have samples on the site that showcase the style and the skills they have.

Take a look at the MMG Photo + Cinema profile page and you will know immediately what I mean. These guys just ooze professionalism but also have an artistic flair that makes their photos so distinct.

They do an amazing job of capturing the scene surrounding the bride and groom, so much so that you almost feel like you are standing right there in the photo with them.

The bride and groom themselves are caught in the most precious and intimate moments that encapsulate how they are feeling on the day more than any words can.

With offices in the Hunter Valley, Sydney and Brisbane it is easy for brides to pop in and chat to the team if they live nearby those areas.  Because MMG Photo + Cinema tailor each package specifically to their clients needs, it is best to make a time to talk to them personally about what you are after. It also gives you a good chance to view more photographs and albums and of course to meet with the potential photographer themselves. You will be spending as much time with the photographer on the wedding day as with anyone else, so it definitely helps if you get along together.

Once you have chosen a photographer, make sure you discuss the important points such as the location of where you want to take your photos, and any essential shots you have your heart set on. If you are visiting MMG Photo + Cinema, ask them to tell you the benefits of using a videographer as well, as it may not be something you have fully considered before.

Another way of finding out if a photographer is right for you is simply to ask around. Jump onto our forum and chat directly to other brides about the photographers they have chosen and why. Ask your friends and family or check to see if there is a facebook page and see what people have written on the wall. MMG Photo + Cinema also has a blog you can follow which gives more of a glimpse into their style and personality.

Whoever you choose to go with in the end, make sure you are comfortable and happy with them. And if you have an experience with any photographers you would like to share, please let us know about it on the forum!
