Hiring a videographer is an expense you have to factor into your wedding day budget, just like any other wedding vendor, but many couples feel that footage of their wedding day is priceless.
Having a recording of your wedding day is your opportunity to say, “this was me…then” in years to come. You can admire how beautiful your dress flowed while you were dancing your first dance, or how emotional you were when your sister said her speech. Hearing your beloved speak his or her vows is so special… but standing at the alter is so surreal, there’s a good chance you won’t really catch the words the first time around! You’ll forget all the little things you did that day, but the videographer will help you remember.
You’re often told that your wedding day goes by as fast as a camera flash and it’s very true. Right after “you may kiss the bride”, you’re at the “last dance” before you know it – and then it’s all over. It’s amazing how much happens on that very day and unless you’re Wonder Woman, it’s impossible to be everywhere at once.
To see the looks on your guests’ faces during this magic moments. Your aunt’s smile as you first stepped out to walk down the aisle, your grandma wiping a tear from her eye when you say “I do”… you’ll be so wrapped up in the day that you’re bound to miss things and it’s great to be able to relive them.
Because videographers know what they’re doing and by playing with speed, music and voiceover, they can create a beautiful wedding keepsake that takes you right back to one of the best days of your life.
