Five Reasons You Need A Wedding Videographer

Updated: Mar 26, 2021

Invest In Your Memories

Some people think of their videographer and their photographer as an expense that must be paid in order to have something to look back on after their day. That is a terrible way to look at it. lol Try not to think of your videographer and your photographer as paying for a service, but rather as investing in preserving your memories. Memories are priceless, and when is the next time you are going to hire a filmmaker to tell a story about your love?

See The Parts You Missed

There is so much happening on your wedding day. You just aren’t going to be able to see it all. The groom getting ready, the flower girl, the ring bearer — when you're walking down the aisle and your eyes are filled with tears of joy as you're trying to keep it together. When you're so emotional seeing your loved ones surrounding you that you can barely see ahead. When the doors fling open, and time stops, and there’s that expression on your husband's face. With a video, you'll get to see all of that, forever — and the same goes for your family and friends, whether they are able to attend your big day or not. A film will capture everything from the small details to big emotions.

Pictures Are Not Enough

A wedding film can offer an additional layer of emotion that a picture can’t provide. The audible reaction during a first look, the tears in motion, the collective gasp when a bride walks down the aisle, the speeches — these moments can be captured discretely by an experienced filmmaker equipped with super low-profile microphones that you won’t even know are there. Photos will freeze your happy moments in time, and a film will allow you to relive them. Both a photographer and videographer are essential, and you should have both.

It Only Happens Once

Not Having a Video Could Be Your Biggest Regret. A recent poll from says 35% of couples wish they had hired a videographer. And 25% of those couples said they wish they budgeted more money toward their Videographer. Once the wedding is over, it will be too late to change your mind.

Sharing Is A Breeze

With Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, email, and texting, everyone will see your film. Your videographer may also create short clips for you to share on social media. I always create a version specifically for YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram. There’s just nothing easier than pulling up your video on YouTube and having digital files to upload wherever you’d like.

Don’t miss out on a quality story about your wedding day. I have had couples tell me it was the best decision they made for their wedding, and that is why I love my job. I love nothing more than creating these priceless memories for couples. You, your family, your kids, and your grandkids will have this memory of you to watch forever.
