The Five Reasons You Should Hire a Videographer for Your Wedding

It’s understandable that videography is an added expense, but if it’s in your budget, it’s worth the splurge. Here are five things you should know about wedding videography.

We’re always surprised that many couples choose not to hire a wedding videographer, even though we’re frequently blown away (read: openly crying at our desks) by the gorgeous and emotional wedding videos we’re fortunate enough to view. Though we understand that videography can be expensive (the average cost of a videographer is $1,658, but it varies by location), we believe it’s worth it if at all possible. Wedding videography has a number of benefits.

Motion And Sound Will Be Captured By Your Wedding Videographer.

Wedding photography captures a moment in time, but wedding videography captures movement and sound at the same time. Wedding Films will allow you to hear your spouse gasp when you see each other for the first time, your dad’s toast, and your mother’s laughter. You’ll get to watch your first kiss as newlyweds, your first dance, and your grandmother’s amazing dance moves. With the use of a drone, you may even be able to see your wedding venue from above. Still, wedding photos are beautiful and artistic, but they cannot capture motion or sound, which makes a video indispensable.

Wedding Videos Capture The Emotions Of Your Special Day.

A professional wedding videographer will not only capture the raw footage of your wedding day but will also edit it down to create an emotional movie with music, that will tell the story of your wedding from start to finish. This is the closest thing to reliving your wedding day. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry.

The 5 Biggest Benefits of Wedding Videography

The Day Of Your Wedding May Not Be Perfect, But Your Wedding Video Will.

You won’t get a chance to see everything on your wedding day, as it will go by very quickly. You can’t watch your bridesmaids walk down the aisle while you’re waiting in the wings, for example. There won’t be a tear in your mother-in-law’s eye when you say “I do”. When you’re mingling with guests, you may not see your parents dancing cheek-to-cheek. A videographer captures these moments on film, allowing you to view them as if you were there, and see even more than you were able to on your wedding day. Having a videographer at your event will give you a fuller picture of the event-and that is priceless.

Sharing Wedding Videos Is Easy.

Nowadays, videographers can upload wedding videos to platforms such as YouTube and Vimeo. This makes it easy for you to share your wedding video with loved ones. Also, your videographer may be able to produce short clips for sharing on social media. You can make family members and friends unable to attend feel like they were actually there by hiring a videographer for your small or destination wedding.

Wedding Videos Can Be Viewed Again And Again.

While you can’t hang your wedding video on your wall and see it every day like you can with your photos, or put it on your coffee table like a wedding album, you can find special times to watch it and relive the memories. You can watch it every year on your anniversary or host a viewing party with your wedding party. You’ll treasure your wedding video as a keepsake and family heirloom for a lifetime.
