So, you have been planning your wedding day for months now, maybe even a full year, and the costs are mounting (don’t they always?). At this point in the stressful and costly business of planning a wedding day it is natural to start cutting costs, but we would urge you consider carefully before cutting the cost of a videographer! Paying for both a photographer and a videographer might seem excessive, but your wedding day is worth the expense, and you deserve to see everything that you’ll no doubt miss on that whirlwind day!
Here are our top reasons to hire a videographer to make your wedding video;
Why a pro?
Well, why can’t I just get uncle Donald or cousin Laura to do it, you ask? Well, you could if you already have a video camera, but there are some perks to hiring a professional. Firstly, they bring their own equipment, and it’s very often better than you might have at home. Secondly, they won’t get distracted by the festivities. And finally, professionals will often be able to get the video edited and put onto a disc for you, or even have it uploaded on line, making it easy for you to share with loved ones.
Capture the Details
While you spent months planning all those little details that people will love, your wedding day will go by so fast that you might not get the chance to appreciate them for yourself. This is where a good videographer comes in; while a photographer will catch all the best snaps for your album, a videographer will get the milieu, the little moments of fun and dancing, which are too chaotic for a photo. These are the moments you will cherish most in years to come.
Relive Your Ceremony
The beauty of this is that if you have friends and family who can’t be at your wedding because of distance or illness etc they can enjoy the ceremony and reception in video form! If you are very up-to-date, you could even hire a videographer who will stream your ceremony live for far flung loved ones to enjoy! This is something out of reach of photographers!
Revisit Your Cherished Memories
Perhaps the biggest benefit of having a videographer at your wedding, however, is the ability to look back at your big day in years to come. If you’re spending this much time and money on just one day, after all, you want to see every part of it. There are few things as lovely as looking back at one of the happiest days of your life and seeing it replayed in full color and sounds as if you were there all over again! Many a bride has regretted not having a videographer at their wedding, but we can’t think of one who was sorry she did!
Make sure that your blissful wedding memories and crazy reception antics are never lost to you with a professional videographer!
