Is wedding videography a good investment?
The folks over at Long Haul Films have created a little video for their blog about why hiring a wedding videographer is a great investment. Our thoughts on the matter are mirrored in our FAQ page, but we’ll be happy to reiterate.
At first glance, it might seem that hiring a videographer/filmmaker for your wedding is redundant, because you are most likely planning on hiring a photographer. But in our experience shooting and watching many, many competitor’s videos ourselves, is that nothing could be further from the truth. The sounds, movement, feelings and details that a talented videographer captures and edits into a short film are going to feel completely different than what you are getting from your photographs. Not to mention that without a videographer, the memories of certain aspects of your vows, speeches, dances and other formalities might be lost. We always encourage our would-be clients to do their research and plan a face-to-face meeting to ask questions – not everyone offers the same thing, or films the same way!
There are many wedding videographers around, some good, some not-so-good, and some spectacular. But the important thing is, there is always someone who will be able to fit your style, or particular price-point.
