This is a question many couples asks themselves. Is it necessary? Can we afford it? Why do we need one? Not every couple opts for a wedding videographer but for some it the best decision you make throughout the whole planning process. Nothing captures your day and tells your story like a wedding film.
What Would Videography Add to My Wedding?
If you ask almost any bride what she remembers about her special day she will probably tell you that it all went by so fast that most of it was just one big blur.
There are some things that you may miss on the big day such as the arrival of the groom or the bridesmaids, or perhaps you may even be wondering what your own entrance was like from everyone else’s perspective.
Although it is not a necessity, a professionally produced wedding film is the ultimate way of encapsulating the very essence of your very special day - a kaleidoscope of memories and sounds that you can share with family and friends, children and grandchildren for years to come.
Aren’t Photos Enough?
Photographs are an incredibly important aspect of the wedding as those priceless pictures will be admired and hung in frames or albums that you’ll want to look at again and again.
The first look the couple have on their wedding day is an utterly magical moment but imagine if it was captured on film as well – who wouldn’t want to watch it back in all its glory and relive that special moment?
If photographs are enough for you to be able to remember the wedding by then that’s absolutely fine, but if you want every moment captured in detail and you want to remember the kind words that were spoken, then choosing a wedding videographer would be the right decision for you.
What if I Can’t Afford a Videographer and a Photographer?
Fitting everything around your wedding budget is the tricky part, as you may have already decided whether you want a wedding videographer or not but the problem is whether your budget will allow this.
Investing money into a wedding videographer and a photographer, is important and you may regret if you don’t have either of them. However if you have to pick one to invest money in, then decide whether having good quality photos or a professional film would be more beneficial to you. But remember there is a photographer and videographer to meet every budget.
