3 Reasons Why You Should Hire a Videographer


Your wedding day goes by so quickly that you’ll miss a lot and may not remember a good amount of it. A videographer will ensure that the moments that mean the most are captured for you to relive and cherish for years to come.

Relive the moment in real time.

While a photographer will capture the reaction of your spouse the first time he or she sees you, they won’t capture the gasp of surprise or the words of love and admiration that he or she whispers in your ear. You’ll have pictures of your dad raising a glass to the newlyweds as he toasts your marriage, but you may not remember exactly what he said. When your loved ones have passed on and you want to hear them laugh or see them dance the jitterbug again, you can always watch your wedding video.  Your wedding day will go by so fast and you’ll be so nervous at first that you may not remember the details! Videography allows you to relive each beautiful moment of your wedding day in crystal clarity in a way that photography can’t.

It offers a different perspective.

A videographer offers you a different perspective of your own wedding. You won’t get to see your fiancé getting ready with his groomsmen, but your wedding video will show you just how nervous he was. As you walk down the aisle, you’ll be so focused on your soon-to-be-spouse at the other end that you won’t notice anyone else. Your videographer will capture shots of your guests arriving and dancing at the reception. You’ll see your flower girl strut down the aisle and watch as your mother wipes away tears when your father makes his toast. Seeing all of these moments through the eyes of your loved ones will provide you with a different perspective of the day and allow you to draw a different meaning every time you watch it.

You can share your day with loved ones over and over again.

Having a short video of the festivities allows you to share it on social media with family or friends that couldn’t make it. And if you like watching home-videos of your childhood, the debate between hiring a videographer or not shouldn’t even be a question for you. You’ll be able to watch your special day on your 50th anniversary and with future generations of your family. Imagine sitting down with your future kids and laughing over how the styles have changed or covering their eyes when you and your now-spouse share your first kiss. It could even become a tradition to relive the experience on every anniversary!

A videographer is one of the best investments you will make for your wedding. The outcome is a treasured and cherished keepsake from the most emotional day of your life. When meeting with a local videographer, be sure to ask them about new technologies, second shooters, and the length of your video. For more tips about videography, read some of our other blogs!

We’ll have to start looking around for a videographer so we can relive all the moments from the event.

It’s nice how you said that a videographer is important to hire for important events so you can save these memories and rewatch them. I like how you said that they should also help you always have captured memories that are in live time.

Totally agree with a different perspective. The day goes so quickly and you want to remember everything but that’s not possible and a professional videographer with capture it all and this will, in turn, jog memories that he/she may not have been there for. I know of a couple who used an amateur video in along with her main video to capture outside and inside scenes at the same time and a bit of clever editing made for an interesting video.

I agree, I always watch our wedding video again and again. Over time there are details that you forget and it becomes a blur. Your film is the perfect way to hold you memories of that day.
