Amid all the other decisions surround one of the most important days in your life is whether you want to have a wedding video. The answer might not be completely clear to you at first. For a some, they know without a doubt that they will make sure they have one! Most people really would like to have a wedding video but don’t plan it into their budget early on. Think about it for a minute, you have spent an enormous amount of time planning just about every detail of you wedding day but have you considered the days following and how you will remember everything and share it with others?
“Will I remember everything and share it with others?”
Too many times have brides said to me after the wedding that their biggest regret was NOT having a videographer for the wedding. Hindsight is always 20/20 right? Well, it sure is in this case and thousands of others. To say that your wedding day is going to go incredibly fast and be a whirlwind of activity is a gross understatement. Too much is going on for you to take it all in at once, and that s a good thing because you can experience it again and again through a quality video or film. Think of it as an investment into the future for you, your family and friends to experience once more the love, excitement and commitment you and your fiancÃ© made to each other forever. My favorite thing to hear from a couple after their wedding is that they were able to share their wedding video with a grandma, grandpa, aunt, cousin or anyone who wasn’t able to be with them on their special day.
“They were able to share their wedding video with a grandma, grandpa…”
I want to share a couple of things to keep in mind when deciding to look for and choose the right videographer who can create a quality wedding film for you. First, make sure to view their past work. There are many styles out there to choose from, find what style fits you. Second, is making sure you like the videographer(s) you choose, especially since they are going to be with you for most of your wedding day. Take the time to grab a cup of coffee with them. This will give both parties a chance to get comfortable with the new relationship and have some fun chatting. Do not under estimate this, it will be so much more enjoyable on the wedding day for everyone, I promise! Finally, make sure that your videographer will be capture the day from multiple angles and with multiple cameras. This is the difference between a quality wedding film and an amateur one that you are not going to like.
Remember, this is one day out of many, many others in your life but for many is one of the most important. Let a videographer help capture it for you to remember for years and years to come with those closest to you and remember that you deserve the best.
