Why choose video for your wedding or event

Why Video?

Why Video? Simply put, you won’t remember what happened at your wedding.  And pictures only give you so much

The impact of sound and emotion is a reason to choose video in conjunction with photos for your wedding.

It’s also one of the benefits of choosing our combination packages.

It’s estimated wedding couples only remember 15% of their wedding day in total.

There are so many special moments on your wedding day!  Are you giving gifts to each other before the wedding? The tears of joy from your family will come throughout the day.  Your wedding day is full of funny and precious moments.  Everyone sees the family pictures in an album, but video tells the story.  You can see pictures of your friends, but with video they can give you their well wishes. The music,  pageantry and the tears of joy during your first dance are more reasons to choose video for your wedding.   What about the memorable toasts from people who know you best, and of course all those dance moves from you and your friends and family.  These are all special moments we preserve for you through video.

Pictures tell one story, video lets you hear and see the special moments.  Below is a comparison of photo and video.

How to Pick a Videographer for your wedding

Important questions to ask are: “What am I going to get in the end?”  “Do I just get a highlight?” Or do I get my ceremony, my first dances, cake, exit and other special moments included in the video?”  If you have multiple locations for your wedding day, is there enough staff to cover it all?

When picking a videographer/cinematographer for your wedding, it’s really important to know they have quality equipment.  Will they capture the vows during the wedding?  And do they have back up equipment?  Your wedding is a live one-time event, it’s important to find the right video studio for your wedding. And just like wedding photography, communicating your wishes is super important and will give you a better video.
