Why Video Your Wedding?

When it comes to planning a wedding, you need to factor a lot to the budget. So one question many engaged couples ask is how important is it to have videography at the wedding...

Let’s cut to the chase! It’s an absolute must to have your wedding recorded in motion. Well, we would say that wouldn’t we… okay fine, but maybe this will help, here’s some compelling reasons why you really should consider videoing your wedding…

Telling a Story

Every wedding has a story. You’re going to get more than just a capture of what’s happening throughout the event. It’s going to be very cinematic, from breakfast to cutting the cake, and all the way to the very last dance, you’re going to have the opportunity to relive the moments. If you’re in South Florida, Ross Brodsky’s wedding photography is going to be your best choice! You’ll be able to hire both photographers and wonderful wedding videographers from them!  They do all the video editing and they’ll use more than one camera, meaning there will be multiple angles of these special moments which contributes to making the video so cinematic.

Seeing Moments that you Missed Out On

Your wedding day is going to be one of the busiest days of your life. The second you wake up until you fall asleep you’re going to be busy, running around, and you’ll have a lot of stuff on your mind. Realistically you’re not going to be able to see everything that happens during your special day. You won’t be able to see the bridesmaids and groomsmen walking down the aisle, see your parents cry, see the in-laws slow dancing, or even your guests enjoying the food.

While you or your soon-to-be spouse may not have the chance to see the moments and experience them, your videographer will be able to capture all of these sweet moments for you to watch as if you were there. Moments like these are priceless and are meant to be seen.

Sharing the Experience for Loved Ones Who Weren’t There

Unfortunately, some loved ones like friends, family, or even coworkers will be unable to make it to your wedding. Nowadays, it’s super easy to upload your special wedding video to platforms such as YouTube. This will allow you to share your video with anybody who missed out. You may be able to ask for small clips as well from the wedding so you can share them on social media. This wedding video is perfect for those who couldn’t make it because it’s going to make them feel as if they were truly there getting to be a part of your special day.

Share the Video with Future Generations

Children get curious about how their parents met, and how their parents lived before they were born. Your future kids are going to love watching your wedding video. You and your spouse will be able to look back on it, your child will be able to see the love and happiness you and your partner have. But it also allows them to look at their grandparents, and their aunts and uncles being younger too. It’s special getting to share moments like these with your child.

The Wedding Video Will Encapsulate the Emotions You and Your Spouse Had on That Special Day

Hiring a professional wedding videography service like Ross Brodsky Wedding Photography is going to capture so much raw footage on this special day. This cinematic piece is going to be an emotional movie. From the beginning to the end there will be happiness, love, laughter, excitement, cries, and reminiscing about this big event and the emotions tied to it all around. This video is going to be the closest thing to you getting to relive your wedding.

The Memories Might Fade, but This Video Won’t!

As we get older, our memories tend to fade out a bit. This is just a natural part of life. Videos can transport you back to your special day. You’ll be able to relive these special moments, hear your loved ones’ cries and laughter again, and experience this intimate event once again.

Your Wedding Day is Going to Fly By

It is true what everyone says, you can count on your wedding day just zapping by. All the months-long planning that leads up to the big day will be gone in a blink of an eye. You and your spouse have a lot to handle on your all’s big day, this includes lots of stress as well. Since your mind is going to be crowded, and your brain is trying to process this major step in your life, you’re going to be thankful to have the opportunity to just sit down, relax, and watch your wedding video. You’ll get to see and hear a lot that you may have not noticed or got to experience during the wedding day itself.

Photos Can’t Capture all Moments

While it’s still strongly recommended to hire a photographer too, it’s best to realize that photos can only capture so much. Photos can’t capture the sounds of laughs and cries. They can’t capture the music, and they can’t capture those loving moments either. Yes, photographers will still capture beautiful moments beginning to the end but it still just can’t compare. While a photo is worth a thousand words, the movement, and sounds that a video captures are priceless. You may want to look back on listening to the wedding vows, toasts, speeches, and the first dance.

So There You Have It…

These are keepsakes that will help you relive the moment. You can hear the dialogue, the chatter from the guests, hear those precious vows your beloved spouse said to you. While it may sound like having both a videographer and a photographer is a bit much, it truly isn’t…

There are so many sweet moments that a photograph can capture. So many sweet words and blessings that can’t be heard with a photograph. While photographs are important for any wedding, having videos is just as special, (if not more so).

All in all, a wedding videographer should not replace a photographer. They both are meant to capture special moments but you’re able to look back and relive these moments through both. It’s important to hire a videographer for your wedding day but it is also important to hire a photographer too. One is simply not enough if you want to capture all raw feelings of love and intimacy from that day. It’s worth it, and you’ll be thanking yourself for years to come.
