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.
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.
