5 things to know for your wedding video to rule them all!
From beginning to end.
Think of your wedding video as a short film encapsulating this magical day, a form of cinematic art created to capture every stage of the day, the preparation on the wedding day, the ceremony, the party. You will find yourself watching the wedding video and experiencing this day from start to the end. The wedding video will include everything you would like to have for the years to come all the wonderful wedding decoration, you, walking down the aisle, your first dance as a married couple, the wedding toasts, the party… With the right editing, the video will convey the whole atmosphere of joy, love and happiness!
It is live and vivid.
Unlike still photographs, the wedding video is live and vivid. That being said, you can always get back to watching it and experience all the small and big moments of this special day. Everything is spontaneous and honest, which means that you will get not only the things that happened, but also all the faces, all the emotions and feelings that matter the most. The decorations and different memorabilia will not last forever, but the wedding video will always be at your disposal to relive this special day. Still photographs lack the immediacy and the vividness of a video, while the video activates more senses.
It combines image and sound.
Yes, photographs of your wedding are as important as the video of your wedding. However, we have to mention the obvious difference between the two, and this is sound. Having not only the visual aspect of your most special day, but also the sound effects, the words, the laughter, the music and the tears of joy will bring more emotions when rewatching it. Also, your wedding videographer will always be around to capture everything! You will be surprised how many feelings and emotions they will capture possibly, more than you could even imagine! You might even feel like you are experiencing your wedding in a new way!
When it comes to choosing your videographer, you need time to do some research, time to meet them and time to discuss with them. Each one of the videographers has his/her own unique style in capturing a wedding day: from the way they work, to the way they use light, the way they edit the videos and the artistic touch they put into it. Like a film director, apart from capturing what is in front of the camera, they do it in their own specific way. You will have to spend time going through their website, their previous wedding videos and later on discuss the way they work and the way you can mutually agree to collaborate. The more time you have, the better!
Ally on board!
The wedding videographer is one of the few people that have attended more than 20 weddings every year, so they know how things work, what are the common mistakes and they can certainly work on some tips on how to avoid moments of panicking over small details.

So, you should see them as a useful ally when it comes to planning your special day choose them wisely and get them on board with the preparations!
