There’s no doubt your wedding photographer is a must! But what about capturing not only the moment, but the entire event… Emotions, energy, colours and memories may be stored for years on the ‘Still Image’ as treasured portraits, but image being able to not only see, but actually hear (and feel) the words and every expression (humorous, silly, funny and tear-jerking) shared on your wedding day for years to come.
Today, quality wedding videographers can capture and create a classic documentary worthy of TV exposure, not that you may want you wedding shown in prime-time, non the less, the production is worthy of such an audience. Here are three great reasons why you should budget and capture your wedding day with your videographer.
- Create your own Time Capsule. Both photos and videos have an unique quality: they can allow time to stand still. But videos allow you to see and hear your grandfather’s joy as you invite him onto the dance floor for a special dance alone with you. You can watch your young cousin walk down the aisle as your flower girl again and again when she graduates from college. Some of your loved ones will unfortunately pass away, while others will grow older. Your videographer will capture them just as they are now for you to enjoy the memories forever.
- For the moments you were too busy to notice. While you’re getting ready, your love is getting ready too. How did the other half of your wedding party spend their morning? You’re both likely wondering the same thing. You and your sweetheart may also be wondering how guests reacted when they saw your reception space and wedding decor for the first time, or how the dance-off that lasted for 15 minutes really started. Your videographer will capture all of the moments you missed so you can watch them unfold later.
- For the moving pictures. The biggest reason to hire a wedding videographer is because they will create a moving picture of your day. You can relive your wedding morning and the conversations you and your bridesmaids shared as well as your emotion-filled walk down the aisle. Every move you made through your wedding ceremony, dad walking you down the isle, your laughter or tears as you shared your wedding vows, and of course, your first dance can be watched again and again. And you can also see and hear all of the small moments that happened too -– the words exchanged with your beloved after you recessed down the aisle, the kiss that your flower girl planted on your ring bearer. Your wedding day is busy, but you don’t want your actions to become a blur. Your videographer won’t allow that to happen.
