You’ve dreamed about every detail of the day you say, “I do,” and when the day arrives, it can pass in the blink of an eye.  Along with photography, one way to relive the best parts of your wedding day is to hire a videographer.

As wedding planners, we regularly see videography services on the end of many brides lists when it comes to their budget, but we always hear rave reviews from brides who do choose video services. It’s certainly something you want to look into, and decide if it’s a fit for you on your big day.

Consider the benefits of hiring a videographer:

  • Capturing the depth of moments throughout the day. Your photographer will catch the defining images of your wedding day. Your videographer will add depth to these images. Capturing expressions, sounds and movements on film will allow you to witness the full range of emotion that crosses the groom’s face when he catches a first glimpse of his bride.
  • Seeing moments you may have missed. Your wedding day will be full of activity, and you may miss small, meaningful moments among your guests or bridal party. Your videographer has the opportunity to notice and film these moments, giving you the chance to see every important part of your day.
  • Remembering well wishes from your loved ones. Your videographer can record sentiments from those closest to you throughout the day, as well as reception speeches and toasts. Being able to revisit the sweet words of those who love you will be an encouragement long after your wedding day.
  • Creating a unique story. Your videographer will edit your video, add music, and create a stylistic film that ties the details from your day into a story. Your video will express your personality as a couple and be one-of-a-kind, just like your wedding day.

Preserving your wedding day memories on film is a worthwhile investment. Browse online portfolios and ask your wedding planner or vendors for recommendations as you search for the right videographer for your wedding.
