If you speak to any of your married friends who hired a wedding videographer to film their wedding day, you can be rest assured that all of them will tell you that it was well worth the money! When planning your wedding, wedding videographers do not seem to be very high on the priorities list whereas your photographer is usually one of the first things you secure. Personally I think this stems from tradition, videographers used to come and film the whole day and then deliver a chronological 8-10 hour film of the day! WHO ON EARTH is ever going to watch that beast back but now with wedding films being more fun and with a more cinematic approach we can totally create something really cool from your wedding day without having to bore you half to death!
Below are my top 10 reasons on why you should hire a wedding videographer!
You can relive your wedding day over and over again. Your wedding day is going to fly by so having your wedding day filmed enables you to relive it over and over again anytime you want.
You will see new things Having your wedding day filmed will enable you to see things you may have missed on the day.
Timestamp your loved ones Whether you’re inviting grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, small children, teenagers or babies to your wedding, it will amazing to look back at your wedding video in years to come, to see how people have changed from then to now. Having that lifetime memory of grandparents, for example, could be priceless.
Creativity is your friend As mentioned before, your wedding film is not like your Great Aunt Mary's 8 hour wedding day film. Your videographer AKA me lol can really have fun with the footage we capture and create something magical.
Include Family A shorter highlight film can be shared over social media and sent to family and friends that are perhaps oversees and were not able to make the day, they will love watching this magical memory of your special day!
Create an heirloom Your future children will love watching your wedding film and every anniversary you could make it a tradition, reminding the children of family members
Relax Having a team of professionals all experienced in dealing with weddings is a must have! Between your team we can fix things that go wrong, work together with the venue to make sure things stay on time and basically make everything run really smoothly!
Relive the words Is your dad giving an epic speech, your videographer will capture this audio for you and if you hire me for your wedding, i give you all the speeches, reading etc so you can listen back to it anytime you want.
Lights, Camera, Action Wedding videographers are not a lights, camera, action kinda set up. Me and my team work with small mirrorless cameras that most people do not even realise that we are filming on. We are totally not a full on film crew and we capture the action as it happens.
No Regrets If you hire a wedding videographer, you will have zero regrets
