The Benefits of Hiring a Wedding Videographer
They say a picture paints a thousands words, but a video paints a million more, capturing the very essence of a moment to re-live again and again. This is why video lends itself so well to weddings. What better way to capture the most important day of your life than on film? With every smile, every laugh, every often missed moment there to view again and again.
The most obvious benefit of hiring a wedding videographer is the capturing of memories from that exact moment in time. Often your wedding day goes by in a flash, and it’s undoubtable that you’ll only catch a glimpse of some moments, or miss others completely. A wedding video gives you the chance to see all those missed moments, including those you would never normally see at all - such as your other half getting ready. It can be used to provide guests who couldn’t attend the chance to share in your special day, and is also something fun to look back on in years to come; providing a timeless portrait of the happiest of days.
Wouldn’t a wedding photographer do the same job? Photography is a brilliant medium - no doubt about that - but video tells so much more of a story, and they can go together hand-in-hand. Video adds depth to your photos, bringing them to life, and capturing people’s personalities. You get to relive the speeches from your closest family and friends; see all those bad jokes and ‘hilarious’ anecdotes. Video is a more real, un-staged story of your day, standing alongside those traditional photos.
Isn’t it all a bit intrusive? When you think of filming, many people imagine big movie cameras and are wary of having such cumbersome objects hanging around all day. But this is not the case at all! Here at Imogen & James, we use really small equipment that can be hand-held or perched atop a three axis stabiliser. This provides an unobtrusive experience (whilst still providing footage worthy of the latest blockbuster) meaning you’ll hardly notice we’re there at all. So you needn’t worry about guests being camera shy/film divas either!
Wedding Videography captures the very essence of your day in a way that nothing else can. It gives an authentic picture of you and the people you love, sharing in one of the happiest days of your life. Is there any better way to remember it?
