WHY IT MATTERS

Videography is one of the most underrated and underutilized wedding services. It’s also the number one service brides and grooms say they wish they had reserved when they look back on their wedding day. 


Why? Videography does something that photography simply isn’t able to. It adds the real-life, human element of sound to your wedding day memories that photographs just can’t capture. Think about it. In a photograph, you can’t hear the emotion in the groom’s voice as he says his marriage vows. You can’t hear the bride whisper a soft “I love you,” in the groom’s ear when they see each other for the first time. You can’t hear the excitement in the bride’s and groom’s voices when they get to call each other “husband” and “wife” for the first time. You can’t hear the speeches and toasts, written specifically for each couple, or how the best man’s voice cracks as he talks about his best friend. You can’t hear the music of the first dance – so often a song that is sentimental and incredibly meaningful for the couple. This is why videography is so important.


The fact is that videography is profoundly connective and emotional. The primary reason couples that didn’t reserve videography say they wish they had is because they feel that their wedding day documentation is missing that human element, which is incredibly important for such a momentous event. Think about how important photography was to your grandparents when they got married – that was the best method they had at the time of capturing their wedding day memories, and those photographs are cherished for generations. Videography has evolved into an art form similar to photography, but is much more complex with moving parts and auditory elements. Future generations will be able to look back on your wedding video instead of just your wedding photographs, and those real life memories are now timelessly documented. Photography captures important but fleeting and isolated moments of your wedding to tell your story, but videography allows you to truly relive that day over and over again, in vivid sensory detail.


Your wedding day is undeniably one of the most important events of your life. Don’t let not reserving videography be your biggest wedding day regret.
