One of the biggest wedding regrets I hear about as an event planner is not hiring a wedding videographer. It can feel like an added expense in the grand scheme of things, and I get that. Everything related to wedding planning is an investment, but a videographer is something I believe every couple should budget for. If you’re looking for wedding videographer tips, you’re in the right place!
You won’t believe how fast your wedding day goes. There’s so much excitement and anticipation, and the hours fly by. You’ll want to relive the day over and over again, and videos are known for taking you back to a moment.
A video captures moments photos can’t. Of course, wedding photography is still an important part of your day, but a video is too. It can capture things like your friends dancing and singing, your guests’ laughter during a toast, and your spouse’s pure shock at your first look. Emotions can be caught in pictures, but film brings back the emotions felt in that moment. The happiest moments of your life!
You can’t be everywhere at once. A videographer is an expert in capturing authentic moments, even ones you don’t experience yourself! Maybe it’s tears of joy from your mom as you walk down the aisle or your spouse staring longingly at you from across the room. A bride doesn’t get to see her bridesmaids walking down the aisle or guests enjoying cocktail hour. You just can’t see everything that happens at your wedding without a videographer.
You can’t go on social media nowadays without seeing a new wedding video. They are everywhere, and that’s because they’re easy to share! You get hundreds of wedding photos but only one wedding video. It’s much easier to share that with your online friends than ask them to scroll through all your wedding photos.
Many wedding videographers use drones to capture the essence of the wedding venue and atmosphere. It’s such a cool aspect of wedding videography and is something you may not appreciate until you see the wedding film.
YES! Wedding videos are trendy right now, and for good reason! They are so fun to look back on for the couple and the friends and family who were there. There are wedding videographer packages out there to fit every couple’s needs.
Yes. This is the biggest regret I hear from brides. It’s viewed as an added expense and often overlooked, but when it’s all said and done, many couples say it’s one of their biggest wedding regrets. If you’re on the fence and you have the finances to support hiring a wedding videographer, I say go for it.
It depends on your budget. I recommend booking a discovery call to learn more about their process and packages and to get your questions answered. Make sure to ask if they have examples and testimonials you can review. It’s important to book a videographer with experience in the industry who has the film style you’re looking for. You won’t be happy with your wedding video if it wasn’t what you imagined!
I believe every wedding vendor is worth the prices they set. However, I know how expensive weddings can be, so if you’re looking for a few wedding videographer tips to save money, here you go:
