I’ve been a wedding photographer and videographer long enough to hear this question over and over again. The question is “Do I really need a videographer for my wedding?” Being experienced in both fields the answer is a big YES. It is so important that I will always of video packages to any couples that inquire about photo packages or vice-versa. There are a number of reasons why you should. Today we are going to talk about 5 important reasons you should also book a wedding videographer
1.Capture a different perspective of your wedding
Booking a photographer shows how important it is to you to capture those important memories. Having a videographer will serve a different purpose. It’s not that one is more important than the other, they both will complement each. Photography will freeze a moment in time, but the video will show you what lead to that emotionally charged moment.
Like we mentioned in the first reason, wedding days are full of emotionally charged moments. you have the dialogues, the speeches, the laughter, and the crying, all in just about 4 to 6 hours. Your videographer can capture all these moments, and with some specially chosen music, these moments will become your story, your own special film that you can share with your kids and future grandkids.
3.Capture your loved ones at this moment forever.
Unfortunately, we all lose our loved ones we cherish all the time. This is a great way to have fond memories of them on video looking their best. You will see and be able to hear their voices. You will see and relive any quirks about them that you love so much about them. Having a video of that is priceless.
Wedding days are very fast and there is a lot happening so fast that you will miss them. With video you’ll be able to look back and see the things that you would not have seen if you didn’t hire a wedding videographer. These moments are a once in a lifetime moments that can be gone forever if not recorded.
5.You get to relive these special moments nonstop
Having a wedding video or wedding highlight film of your day will allow you to relive those precious moments over and over again. Your collection of memories from both photo and video work hand in hand to deliver and bring back those special feelings over and over again.
Again, do you really need a wedding videographer for your wedding? The 5 reasons above should make your decision a lot easier. You don’t want to have any regrets after the wedding that you should’ve had video. By that time it will be too late. Don’t let it be too late.
