To hire a wedding videographer, or not to hire a wedding videographer, that is the question:
We get it – planning for a wedding can be stressful. You’re probably looking at your “to-do” list, trying to figure out where you’re going to find all the money to put on your big day. Budgeting is one of the toughest parts of planning a wedding, but if your budget allows, we created this top 5 list for why you should hire a videographer, instead of depending on your uncle Andy’s iPhone.
Videos bring your photos to life
Having a video alongside a photo will not only give you the visual representation, but it will also give you the audio and the true emotions of those special moments. Your husband’s reaction the first time he sees you, your bridal party hyping you up before the ceremony, or your brother turning his best man speech into a remake of Nelly’s “Hot in here” (yes, that happened and it was AWESOME).
Your vows deserve to be heard over and over again
You and your significant other have spent so much time preparing your vows and then you only get to hear each other for a handful of minutes. Once it’s over wouldn’t it be great to relive that moment and ugly cry all over again? With a video, you’ll be transported back to that exact moment and be able to experience each other’s vows from multiple perspectives.
Capturing the day for those who couldn’t make it
If you’re anything like us, you have an A list of who you want at your wedding, a B list, and there may even be a C list (We just want to celebrate with everyone, okay). Whatever the reason may be, some people won’t be able to attend your wedding. So having a video for them to watch not only provides them a heavy dose of FOMO – but it also allows them to feel like they were there. And who knows, they might buy that fancy knife set off your registry.
A time capsule for generations
Not only will you be able to relive this moment in your life, but it can serve as a great way to show your future kids/family how crazy in love you were when you tied the knot. If your kids ever tell you you’re boring, you can sit them down on the couch and say, “Watch this.”
Star in your love story
Have you ever wished your life was scored like a movie? Well, here’s your big chance, and let me tell you something, you 👏🏽 deserve 👏🏽 it! Weddings are more than you saying I do, a first dance, and a sparkler exit. It’s the crescendo to the relationship you have been building with your best friend, and it should be documented as such. We want to give you that Notebook, kissing in the rain moment. We want you to feel as special as you truly are, and we made this list to remind you that your story is worth being told. We can’t wait to help you share it!
