Regrets or 3 Reasons Why Wedding Videography Should Not Be One of Them
Updated: Apr 16
Do you remember looking through your best friend's wedding pictures, and having that sweet feeling remembering that awesome day you had together? Or when you are looking through a wedding photographer's portfolio and just can't stop smiling. Have you ever caught yourself watching someone's wedding film and getting teared up because of all the emotions you can hear when the bride is reading a letter from her groom?
I don't know about you but I could cry on total strangers' videos. Because those films reflect many of those emotions that a wedding day holds up. All those planning, the waiting, the sacrifices, the love, and the joy it brings. Nothing can conserve those better than a well-composed wedding film.
Let's look at 3 reasons why brides regret not investing in wedding videography.
1. Moments you didn't see
The day is busy and goes by so fast. (Believe me, I've been there.) You cannot be everywhere, you won't be able to catch everyone's reaction as you walk down the aisle. On the day your close family and you will be so busy with meeting everyone, make sure you talk to your guests. It's just not possible to catch everything.
2. Emotions and special moments
Photos are great for capturing those moments when you burst into tears during your dinner, videography can tell you the toast your dad made which made you emotional. Wouldn’t you love seeing your father walk you down the aisle again? Or your best friend’s surprise performance? Motions, music, and spoken words, the perfect ingredients for some happy tears.
3. Sharing your special day with those who could not make it there!
A huge advantage of having a video is that you can share it with those who could not make it to your wedding. Maybe it's your distant close relative or one of your best friends who is working in a hospital during this tough time, sharing a video can help them to feel a little bit closer.
Okay now, you are thinking, "Of course, I want video, but it is not in my budget." Well, stay tuned for our next post where we go deeper into this...
