So you’re getting married! How exciting is that? There are a lot of decisions to be made and vendors to book. One of the most important vendors you need to hire is a wedding filmmaker. Not having a wedding video is one of the biggest regrets that couples have after their wedding is over. Don’t be the couple who “wishes” they would have.
Still not convinced? Here are 5 reasons that you need to hire a wedding filmmaker to capture your day.
Reason #1 – Video captures what photos can’t
Photography is definitely a must have for your wedding. That being said, photos can only convey so much. If done correctly, a wedding video has the ability to transport you back in time each time you watch it. Everything comes to life and allows you to relive every moment. You can actually hear your voices, and feel the emotion that you experienced on that perfect day.
Reason #2 – You can tell your story
Being able to share a story of how you met, how you got engaged, or what is was about the other that made you fall in love can only be captured in video. Moments like these paired with the visuals of your day create a time capsule that can be shared with friends and family who may not know your story, or who may not have been able to attend your wedding day.
Reason #3 – Seeing and hearing loved ones who have passed
Let’s face it, no one lives forever. Having a video of your wedding day can capture that moment in time forever. Your Mother, Father, Grandparents, even siblings can be seen and heard on video. Sure, having photos is nice, however, if they have since passed on, being able to hear their voices again and see the happiness they had for you is priceless.
Reason #4 – It’s something you can show your kids someday
The natural progression for most couples after their wedding day is to start a family. You can show your kids photos of your wedding, but imagine being able to let them see what you were like back then. How Dad actually cried while saying his vows, how Mom somehow kept it together. You can watch your wedding film together and reminisce about how much you loved your wedding dress, how your tux didn’t fit quite right, how the weather was perfect, or it didn’t cooperate. These are details that you can forget about just looking at photos. Video brings everything to life and being able to show your kids how you became the couple you are is something you can’t do with photos alone.
Reason #5 – It’s an irreplaceable time capsule of memories
Imagine for a moment that you and your spouse are sitting down on your couch 25, maybe 50 years down the road. You’ve had so many adventures in your lives, bought and sold houses, raised your kids, changed jobs, etc. Time has a way of numbing us and blurring the experiences from years past. Being able to turn on your wedding film and be transported back in time to hear your voices, and feel the emotions of that magical day, with tears streaming down your face is something that can’t be easily put into words.
After your wedding is done, those are the moments you can’t get back, the ones forever written in your history. But with a wedding film, you can always relive that day and rekindle the love you have always shared, remembering how this crazy journey started all those years ago. This is why you NEED a wedding film!!
