The Advantages of Wedding Videography
Capturing Unforgettable Moments
The primary goal of wedding videography is to capture the essence of your wedding day. From getting ready, through ceremony and the receptions events, it is the videographer's job is to document every moment of the occasion. By doing so, they capture the emotions, laughter, and tears that fill the room. Unlike photography, it captures not only still moments but also the sound and movement of the moment.
Take this photo for example. Imagine going to this specific moment in your video and hear the laughter, cheering, music blasting and even hearing the officiant say those favorite words...
"You may now kiss!"
That's what video footage can do that photos never will be able to.
Sharing with Loved Ones
Wedding videos can be shared with friends and family who were unable to attend the ceremony. This is particularly important for couples who have loved ones overseas or in remote locations. The rise of social media (and storage platforms) has made sharing wedding videos easier than ever before.
Aerial Views and Cinematic Shots
Thanks to advancements in technology, wedding videographers can now use drones to capture stunning aerial shots of the wedding venue and surrounding areas. On most occasions, these aerial views can be captured as long as there is no government air restrictions or bad weather. They also use advanced camera equipment to create cinematic shots that are crisp, clear, and breathtaking.
Among other videos, wedding videographers often create highlight videos that showcase the best moments of the wedding day. These short films are perfect for sharing on social media or with friends and family who couldn't attend the wedding. They are usually 2-5 minutes long and provide a condensed version of the wedding events in chronological order.
