Is Hiring a Wedding Videographer a Must or a Maybe?
In short—it’s definitely a must.
What once was tacky and cringe worthy has become stunning and timeless, and it might just be the best wedding investment you can make.by The Knot
You may think that having both wedding photos and a video are overkill, or may not want to prioritize videography in your budget, but trust us—you’ll want to hire a wedding videographer. For one, the day literally flies by and there are things you’ll miss that your videographer will capture beautifully, like seeing your grandmother’s emotional reaction as you say your vows. Also, you have to think of the sounds that can’t be captured in a photo, like your “I dos,” the reception music and meaningful toasts. But don’t just take our word for it—listen to feedback from these real brides from our message boards.
“The only regret I have about our wedding is not having a videographer. The day goes by so quickly—you really miss so much of it. I look back now and wish I would have spent the money for it.” —Vikki2pay
“I was really worried that I might regret not having a videographer—not only to capture my fiancé and me, but mostly our family members. I know it’s kind of morbid, but I know they won’t be around forever and I wanted to capture their voices and mannerisms.” —rmfriedman
“While we’re very pleased with our photographer, I’m now starting to have second thoughts about not having a videographer. I guess there’s nothing like having a video to capture the details, people’s faces/expressions, our vows—things that I might miss during the day as a busy bride and that don’t necessarily get captured in even the best quality photos.” —caramels03
“DO IT!!!!! I promise you will not regret spending the money. You may not think you want to relive every minute, but after the day you have been meticulously planning for months flies by in what feels like seconds, you will be desperate for a way to remember it!” —rachaelj99
“I just got married in June, and we had both a photographer and a videographer. I am so, so, so thankful that we ended up going with the video. It was something we almost cut to save money, but it was so worth it! When we got the pictures back, there were many guests and moments that were missed—and thankfully were caught by the video. I hate being filmed, but I never even noticed him throughout the day.” —megc2
“You can replay the most special moments in your life if you have a videographer.” —susannalvovsky
“Our videography was some of the best money we ever spent. It’s true that [your wedding] goes by so fast, and you do see things you didn’t notice when you see the video. Absolutely zero regrets. Our reasoning was that if we’re going to spend so much money on one day, don’t you want to be able to relive it through video? Plus, we can show it to our kids.” —ExpatPumpkin
“I regret not having one. I thought that I’d never watch it and I’d have my pictures, but there’s a lot of your wedding that, as the bride, you don’t get to see. For example, I wish I could see what was going on inside my ceremony tent before I got there. I wish I could see my bridesmaids walk in. The whole thing went by so fast—I’d kill to have more memories of it.” —starrbuk13
“I’m definitely planning on hiring a videographer. I want to be able to see fiancé’s and my expressions when we say our vows. I want to be able to hear how we say them—and I just want to see everyone have a ball at our reception. And come 40 years from now when DVDs and Blu-Rays are old-school, I still want to be able to watch us on our big day.” —jenandcris
“I did not think I would be so excited to watch our wedding video, but the day went by so quickly! I want to see our ceremony and cocktail hour, which I missed. Though I may only watch it a few times, I think it was worth the money.” —foozzle
“I think that the video will capture things that the photos won’t. I know it gets really expensive, but if you just want a documentary-style video (no love stories and all the extras), it will be much cheaper.” —christikao
“We barely even considered hiring a videographer and were confident in the decision not to have one. But after the wedding, I really wish we’d had one. We really underestimated how much we would want to relive the day and see things we missed. Our photos are wonderful but video still captures something photos don’t.” —rel830
“I was anti-video, but I bit the bullet and got one anyway. We don’t watch it very often, but I love having it there for me to watch. We had both the ceremony and reception filmed, and I love being able to see everything that I missed the night of my wedding.” —emimayor
“I had my wedding last month and I regret not getting a videographer. I thought pictures would be enough and most people don’t watch their videos anyway, but your wedding goes by so fast and you miss a lot of things. Plus, I feel like I was in a blissful daze for a lot of it and would love to have the important things captured in video. Pictures just don’t capture everything.” —JDechen
How to find the best wedding videographer ever, right here.
Here’s what you should know before booking your wedding videographer.
The Importance of Wedding Videography
A wedding is a live event, not a single moment. Make sure you get it captured right
We used to say that if we had to decide between wedding videography and wedding photography, we simply couldn’t wouldn’t be able to. But in recent times, our opinion is starting to sway to a particular side of the fence…
The last 5 years has brought more changes to the video/film industry than anyone had thought possible, and video that was once poorly rated in comparison to photography has made a justified resurgence in recent times.
A perfectly captured wedding photo contains glamour, class, beauty – and is of course a stunning feature……but what if that same glamourous, classy, beautifully stunning picture could move, showing a sequence of events, sounds, reactions, emotions and details that a single photo could not provide? Which would you choose?
This is where wedding videography is going. New technology has made it possible to provide not just a wedding video look, but wedding film look at an affordable price to couples looking for the ultimate cinematic recording of their day. New cameras, new lenses and new stabilization equipment has made this possible, and the result is a very exciting time for wedding video – a time that you couldn’t blame the humble wedding photographer for being a bit daunted by.
In the end, we still wouldn’t ever do without our wedding photos, but don’t fall into the trap of under-estimating what wedding video can provide; it could be something that you regret for the rest of your life.
Remember: A wedding is a live event, not a single moment. Make sure you get it captured right – you’re only going to do it once.
The 5 Reasons You MUST Hire a Videographer For Your Wedding
Written by Kim Forrest • Photo: Stacey Hedman Photography
While we’re frequently blown away (read: openly weeping at our desks) by the gorgeous and emotional wedding videos we’re lucky enough to view, we’re always surprised that many couples choose not to hire a wedding videographer. We completely understand that videography is an added expense (the average cost of a videographer is $1,658, but it varies by your location), but we think it’s worth it if at all possible.
Here are some reasons why:
Capturing Movement and Sound
Still photos provide an image of a moment in time, but wedding videos capture both movement and sound. With a wedding video, you’ll be able to hear your spouse gasp during your 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. For as beautiful and artistic as still photos can be, they cannot capture motion or sound—which makes a wedding video a must-have.
The Emotion Factor
It’s so important to hire a professional videographer who will not only capture the raw footage of your big day, but also edit it down to create an emotional movie, frequently set to music, that will 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.
You Won’t See Everything—But a Video Will Capture It
Your wedding day will go by very quickly, and unfortunately, you won’t be able to see everything. For example, you won’t be able to watch your flower girl walk down the aisle while you’re waiting in the wings. You won’t see your mother-in-law shed a tear while you’re saying your vows. You might not see your parents dancing cheek-to-cheek while you’re mingling with guests. But a videographer 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.
Nowadays, videographers are able to upload wedding videos onto platforms such as YouTube or Vimeo. This allows you to easily share your wedding video with loved ones (instead of lugging tapes or CDs to your grandmother’s house). Your videographer may also be able to create 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 were unable to attend feel like they were actually there.
Watch it Again and Again
While you can’t hang your wedding video on your wall and see it every day like you can with your photos, you can find special times to watch it and let the memories come flooding back. Host a viewing bash with your wedding party, or watch it every year on your anniversary. Your wedding video will make a special occasion even more special.
And if this isn’t enough proof that you need to hire a videographer stat, check out these words of wisdom from real, recently-married couples:
“Hiring a videographer was something that we had not initially included on our list but we decided to add later in the process. We loved the way the video turned out …and have really enjoyed being able to relive parts of the day with our friends and family.”—Lainey, married in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
“If you are on the fence about getting a videographer—do it! We are so happy that we have a video that captures our favorite moments from the ceremony and reception. The day goes by in a blur and photos won’t give you the same effect as hearing special moments on tape.” —Susan, married in Sharon, Massachusetts
“Get a videographer! Even if you only watch the video once a year, recordings of your family and friends on the best day of your life are invaluable.” —Karen, married in Lambertville, New Jersey
“There’s so much to take in as a couple on wedding day, we so appreciated having video of the ceremony, first dances, speeches, and all of the little details we worked so hard on planning for a year before our big day. There were little things that I didn’t notice on our wedding day because there was just so much going on and it goes by so quickly. The video helped make those small details feel totally worthwhile.” —Whitney, married in Nashville, Tennessee
Brides, Don’t Risk This Mistake: Is a Wedding Videographer Necessary?
Brides, Don’t Risk This Mistake: Is a Wedding Videographer Necessary?
April 29, 2013. 7 Comments.
Before we got into filming weddings, we had the same connotations of this industry as the next person. My most vivid memory was at a friend’s wedding where I was witness to the stereotypical video dude with the giant shoulder cam, on-camera light, and cables hanging every which way. He was paid to stand in the back of the room and record every second from start to finish.
My first thought was, “are they even going to watch this?”
So, is it Necessary?
To answer the question, I’ll be completely honest. No, a wedding videographer is not necessary. Gasp!
It must be strange hearing that, seeing as this is what we do for a living. The truth is though, having a keepsake like a wedding film just isn’t a priority for everyone. You may be more focused on creating a truly magical evening for yourselves and for your guests, or maybe you want to spend extra effort on organizing an amazing cart of delicious treats for your foodies in the crowd.
If that’s the case, you’re probably less likely to be as concerned with capturing memories as you are in experiencing them with everyone. That’s quite alright, because everyone is different, and we all have our priorities.
Should You Hire a Videographer?
One of the biggest regrets I hear from brides is that they didn’t hire a wedding videographer. Sure sure, I’m biased, but take a look at this article, “Not Hiring a Wedding Videographer is a Bride’s Biggest Regret” or this one, “…Big Mistake. Big. HUGE.”
How did I move in my dress? How did I sound saying my vows? What words did I actually say? … Yep, my main regret is not having any moving footage of my day.
Becky, Rock My Wedding
The fact is, it’s next to impossible for you to remember all of the little details, and even some of the big ones that happened that day. In talking with a potential client the other week, I asked them, “Why is having a wedding film important to you?” His answer made total sense and it was pretty refreshing to know that what we do clicks with our fans. He said that after watching our films, he felt as though he knew these people.
Watching them was an experience, it was immersive.
Our goal when producing a wedding film is to make it as emotionally engaging as humanly possible. This is what we strive for each and every time. Visit our featured wedding films section to see some examples.
If you’re on the fence about it, or you’re not sure you want to spend the money, I would definitely still recommend it. Try looking at it like an insurance policy. You may not watch it all the time, but it’s there if you need it.
A beautiful and professional photo can do wonders, but it won’t let you listen to your own voice reciting your vows. It won’t bring you back into the conversation you were having with your bridesmaids as you got your hair and makeup done together. It won’t let you hear the exchanges between your grandparents and parents during cocktail hour.
A film will do that.
Wedding Videography: 5 Questions To Consider Before Booking A Videographer
This article originally appeared on A Peachy Life Productions’ blog
The intention of this blog isn’t to communicate that videography is necessary.Videography is popular enough so an argument centered on it needing to be a part of a wedding is useless. The point here is to communicate to those who are on the borderline and perhaps are still unfamiliar with what videography is or what the benefits are.
Finding a photographer or a videographer that fits your needs and your budget is no easy task. Like all things involving your wedding, it takes a lot of work. It is obvious that you care a great deal about your wedding and you want it to be special and you want something that will help you commemorate the day, but it just doesn’t fall into your lap.
It is unfortunate that many people look only at the $$$ and pay little attention to the character or response of a videographer or photographer when an inquiry is made. Budget, of course, takes priority over most things, but you never really know what can be achieved if you just reach out and contact someone.
How do you choose the right videographer? What is a videographer for anyway?
Here are five things to think about when considering investing in a wedding film.
1. Why do I want my wedding filmed?
Wedding films date back to before the 1980s, but it was that decade that saw the birth of the first consumer camcorder. Back then it was more of a hassle as it often took away from the aesthetic of the wedding since there was so much equipment required to make it work. Today’s industry still sees a good deal of technology at work, but technology has allowed videographers more freedom in movement and it has become less necessary to use static light stands and such which can distract from the real purpose of the day: the wedding.
Today, videographers are as agile and fluid as any photographer. Their ability to squeeze into impossibly tight areas and come away with elegant shots and flattering angles has catapulted the concept of a wedding film to astronomic heights. DSLRs have now standardized high definition film, bringing Hollywood-quality filmmaking into the hands of amateurs and semi-pros. This is something a number of people still have no idea about.
Take a look at some portfolio work by videographers and see how much more you can get out of a wedding film when in the hands of a videographer, rather than a family member filming from one spot.
2. How much should I spend?
This question probably carries the most weight. There’s a lot of consideration that goes into selecting a price for services by videographers as well as photographers. The prices generally have a lot to do with what is included in the packages that are offered. The hours provided usually make the biggest difference, but you have to think carefully about how many hours you need or would like to have filmed. Some couples want to have everything from start to finish, but this requires going towards longer hours which will mean more money.
It is also imperative to look at what is included in each package. People tend to make the mistake of thinking that videographers will only provide a DVD with one highlights trailer that appears online, or oftentimes in their portfolio. But many companies have so much more to offer. These features, while they add more cost to your package, are usually designed to make remembering your wedding day an even more unique experience.
The lowest-priced packages generally only offer a certain amount of coverage and are tailored towards jouranalizing the wedding experience, rather than capturing special moments that will tell a compelling story. There’s nothing wrong with taking this route, but if you want more bang for your buck, ask the videographer about what other features they have besides the highlights trailer.
It’s pivotal to be in constant communication with your videographer. If they care at all, they will do their best to get to know you as the more comfortable you both feel before the wedding, the easier it will be to film.
It is also worth asking if packages can be customized. Perhaps you don’t want your pre-ceremony prep work filmed, can you add more time for cocktail hour? Can you add a Save the Date video or an engagement video and take off a couple of hours of the wedding?
3. What is the difference between videographers?
The answer to this question leads to another obvious question, “Which videographer is best?” To put it simply, it is just a matter of taste when it comes to which videographer is best. All videographers are in the business because they have talent to film. The spectrum can divide the n00bs from the Pros, but that gap is not as large as one might think. This is becoming more and more apparent with photographers as well. I’m not really involved in that industry at all, but it does seem like it is becoming harder and harder to break away from the pack and get your stuff recognized.
Rather than depending on the quality of your work, there is so much that goes into how you advertise your product. Some argue that it is best to advertise only what YOU love to do and the type of weddings only YOU want to shoot. The flip side is to advertise a variety in your portfolio in order to attract a wide range of clients.
Like the aforementioned, videographers have styles of their own. Some like to stay back and journalize the wedding experience, while others like to get in real close and create cinematic pieces of work that may ignore some of the conventional strategies of capturing every moment of the wedding. The best way to tell the difference is to watch their videos. If that doesn’t do it for you, then looking at how they sell their product and their correspondence with you is the next best thing.
4. How can I be sure I’m going to be happy with what I get?
No one can be completely certain of anything in this life. If you do your research and actually watch the body of work of your videographer, you can make an educated guess at how your video will turn out. If the videographer is receptive to your ideas and wants to implement them, you can be sure to be even happier with the end result. If you see a great video by another videographer, don’t be afraid to share that with them. Seeing fresh ideas will only help increase the quality of your video.
5. What is the point of having my wedding filmed when I already have a photographer?
There’s nothing to take away from photographers or a beautiful photograph, but there are things that a wedding film can provide that a photograph simply cannot (and vice versa). Besides the obvious moving pictures, a wedding film adds the dimension of audio to your wedding experience. Now, in years to come, you’ll be able to hear the sounds of your wedding. Remember what you sounded like when you gave your vows, remember the toast by your father, your mother or other close relatives and friends.
After all the glitz and glamour of the day has dispersed, how would you like to remember everything? It is likely, as bride and groom, that you will miss some moments of your wedding because you’ll be so busy with a million other things (like dancing, greeting guests, cutting the cake, etc). Your memory will serve as your only source aside from pictures, but how will you remember movement and sounds?
The only way to preserve these precious memories is by capturing it on film. Film can capture the moment in real time and preserve it for generations to come. It will outlast you and it will inform future generations of how you approached love.
You’ll also get a unique view of your wedding, a view that no spectator can capture, a view that not even the bride and groom can see.
