Are you on the fence about whether you want to add a videographer to your wedding day? Don’t worry I understand that videography is still relevantly new to the industry but boy is it worth it! So, I’ve broken it down into 5 reasons why you should make room for a videographer – Let’s get into it!
- Forever Family Treasure
Keepsake your own film for your kids, grandkids & the many generations after that. Whether you’ve got kids already or planning to, wedding films quickly become a family treasure. A film full of all your close friends & family, the many beautiful memories all caught & showcased through a beautiful film. Just imagine reliving your parent’s best day of their lives – how magical. Even better to hear about all the stories, the funny, the embarrassing & the oh so wild!…
- ‘The Wedding Day Blur’ – It’s real!
For those who aren’t aware of what some call the ‘wedding day blur’, it’s something that happens often with couples & their wedding day. Your day is action-packed with waves of incredible moments, but because of the intensity of the day, most couples find themselves in shock as they reflect to realize parts of the day becomes a blur (before you say it, it’s not solely caused by drinking too much Champagne – but the bubbles don’t help!). Knowing this you can see why wedding films have quickly become even more valuable to re-live your big day to remember all those moments again and again. But you’re probably sitting there thinking ‘That’s why we have a photographer’, Exactly, but photos are many moments frozen in time, video takes all those moments & just sparks them to life. Capturing all the laughter, beautiful words & many terrible dad jokes…Don’t worry not all of them will see the light of day!… Sorry to all the Dad’s out there.
- Once in a Lifetime Opportunity
How often do you invest so much love, time & money to rally up all your loved ones into one space for one day – not that often. Plus, you’re not the only ones who have invested something into this day. A wedding film allows you & everyone else to re-live it all, to remind you of how much your day meant to you, your parents & all the other guests.
- A Film that Matters – Truly
Wedding films are packed full of real stories with real emotions from real people. These films become incredibly moving, as you simply cannot put a price of the smile on your face as you walk down the aisle, the happy tears of your father when he sees you for the first time, the many giggles as you & your partner are busting it down to your favourite high school jam. These are just a handful of priceless moments that get captured on your wedding day. These are moments that no matter how bad your day is, it’ll still crack a smile.
