When you’re in the middle of planning the perfect wedding and struggling to stay within a budget, you might neglect hiring a professional wedding videographer thinking that a wedding video might be an overkill if you’re already getting wedding photos done. In truth, if a picture is worth a thousand words then a video is worth a thousand pictures. Do not think that you can get by with footage captured on a smart phone. A wedding video by a professional videographer captures moments that may otherwise pass by in the blink of an eye in a cinematic, elegant and emotional way.
So if you’re deciding against hiring a wedding videographer for your big day, think again because:
- A wedding video is a beautiful way to capture moments
Although a wedding takes months to plan, the event itself comes and goes in a matter of hours. You start the day by getting dressed and before you know it, you are walking down the aisle and saying “I do” and having your first dance as a married couple. Inevitably, some moments will be blurry and that’s a shame. Right there is perhaps the most persuasive argument for having a wedding video. It lets you capture moments so you don’t miss out at your own wedding.
- Don’t miss anything
If you’re the bride, you’ll be the last one to walk down the aisle. Won’t you want to know later on what happened before you made your entrance like how the bridal party walk was? A wedding video makes this possible.
- Videos are easy to share
Thirdly, a wedding video is easy to share on, for example, social media sites like Facebook and Instagram or with friends and family members who could not be there. After all, it’s not always easy to get everyone you love and care about to your wedding, especially if they are overseas.
- Relive the day whenever you want
Then of course, having a wedding video means that you can relive your special day and all the emotions you felt over and over again. The truth is: Memories are volatile and they fade but if you have the speech your dad gave that made everyone cry on video, when your silver jubilee comes around, you’ll have a fighting chance of recalling it and everything else that happened on your wedding day.
