5 Reasons You MUST Hire a Videographer

Does anyone remember that part in The Hangover where the dudes wake up and are basically like, “What happened, I blacked out?” Yeah, that is basically every bride after their wedding ceremony. People will be coming up to you all night afterwards, saying, “The ceremony was so beautiful. I happy cried at your sweet vows!” Aaaaand even though you wrote the thing yourself and knew it backwards and forwards, you still have pretty much zero recollection of what actually happened.

While there are going to be lovely photos of you and your soon to be hubby saying super sweet things, you wouldn’t be able to tell us a single word of what was said.

Needless to say, videography is a worthwhile investment to capture those beautiful words and happy tears of your ceremony.

  1. Photography captures the still moments in time, but wedding video captures both movement and sound. With a wedding video, you’ll be able to hear your spouse gasp during a first look, your dad’s toast and your mom’s laughter. You’ll be able to watch your first kiss as newlyweds, your first dance, and your grandmother’s amazing dance moves.

  2. Wedding videos capture the emotions of the day. Not only do you want a videography team who can capture your raw emotions and footage on the day, but can also edit it down to create an emotional movie set to music. It should truly tell the story of your wedding from start to finish. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry - it’s the closest thing to reliving your wedding day!

  3. Contrary to popular belief, you’re not going to see everything on your wedding day -buuut your wedding video will! Your wedding day will go by so so so so quickly, and unfortunately, you won’t be able to see everything. But don’t worry! We gottchu!! We’ll capture your flower girl (or hopefully ring bearer dog?!) as she walks down the aisle. We can show you your mother-in-law shed a tear as you say your vows. You might now see your parents dance cheek to cheek while you’re mingling with the guests. Buuuut a videography team can capture these moments on film, and allow you to watch them as though you were really there, and see even more moments than you were able to on your wedding day.

  4. Wedding videos are easily sharable! Nowadays, videographers can hop on Youtube or Vimeo to upload your wedding video. This makes it all too easy to share your wedding video to eeevverryone in your life! Let’s make Momma cry! Your videography team should also be able to make short clips for you to share on social media. It makes hiring a videographer ideal for those who are having smaller or destination weddings - you can help family members and friends who weren’t able to attend feel like they were actually there.

  5. You can watch your wedding video again and again! While you can’t hang your wedding video on your wall, you can find special times to watch your video, listen to the vows that you exchanged, get teary eyed over your dad’s speech. We definitely recommend hosting a viewing bash with your wedding party or even watch it every year on your anniversary! Gah! So cute!
