When it comes to hiring a Wedding Videographer, this may sometimes end up on the bottom of the Wedding Vendor list. Couples see it as unnecessary, but, after years of experience and hearing from hundreds of couples, we know that cinematography is one investment couples never regret. On the flip side, talk to couples who don’t have a video to show for and many say it’s one of their bigger regrets. Here are some reasons for you to consider.
1. You can relive the moment over and over again
It’s simple, your memories are going to inevitably fade over the years. Your wedding video, however, shall live on forever and ever. Having every moment captured on film is truly a benefit that cannot be measured in price. Anniversaries will be even more special when you get to sit back and reminisce on the entire day. We have couples who tell us years later that it’s not their photos they look through, but their videos they watch after all that time.
2. Wedding Videos are Hip and Cool
Forget about your Mom’s boring Wedding video for a moment. In today’s era, Wedding Videographers still record the entire day but edit everything into one cinematic bite-sized edit. And for those of you who want all of the raw footage, you can still request that. On certain occasions, there may be an additional fee, but it’s there if you want it. What you really want to focus on are the final edits. Here is an article explaining the different types of Wedding Video Edits.
3. Video Reels Capture Movement and Sound
Our favorite reason why you should hire a Wedding Videographer? Well, for as beautiful and artistic as still photos are, they cannot capture motion or sound. These elements bring your memories back to life. Think of your mother’s tearful eyes, your best friend's speech, or hearing your spouse read their vows to you. These are the memories you'll cherish long after your wedding day, and a video will preserve them forever with a musical soundtrack. The biggest day of your life is just too sweet and precious not to document.
4. Videos Complement your Photo
Let’s be clear. We don’t recommend replacing your Photo service with Video, but why not get both to complement one another? Your emotions will come alive as you flip through the pages of your Album and re-watch your video edit. Still photos provide an image of a moment in time, but wedding videos bring these moments back to life.
If you’re going to hire both, we recommend hiring them from the same company. Here are 5 Reasons to Hire Your Photography and Videography Teams from the Same Co.
5. Wedding Videos are Easily Shareable
It’s 2020, folks. Forget about them Blu Rays and DVDs. (Who still has a DVD player, anyway?) Today it’s all about the cloud. Your videos will be easily stored on YouTube or Vimeo where you can easily watch and share with loved ones forever. Your Videographer may also be able to create sneak peeks in the form of a teaser for you to share on your Instagram or Facebook. The guests who weren’t able to make it? They can experience your Wedding now through these video platforms.
6. Video is the New Social Media Currency
Everything you see on social media these days is in the form of a video. It wasn’t too long ago that it was all photos, but with Tik Tok and IG leading the way, it’s easy to see the natural trend we’re moving in. With today’s easy access and video being the common currency of social media, it’s a must have.
