Yes, photos are fabulous, but video captures living moments that photos cannot; like the emotional walk down the aisle, your father’s speech, and your first dance song.
Video – It’s not what you think!
Gone is the idea that a wedding videographer means bright lights and intrusive interactions. The contemporary videographers are now noted as cinematographers. They embrace a more documentary style of both filming and storytelling; meaning that you may never even notice them – until they deliver the finished masterpiece of your wedding day. Wedding videography is now available in a variety of styles, from vintage Super 8mm film to enhanced high-def.
Video captures the moments:
Yes, your photographer will get both posed and candid shots on your wedding day, but for everything in between, you still will need the equally important cinematographer. Since the videographer is more interested in capturing you in motion, you can just keep enjoying the party and will not need to worry about looking stiff or awkward on film.
Cinematography experiments with various styles:
Your wedding photos will be timeless and they will be adorned in your home for years to come, but your wedding cinema will let you revisit every emotion you felt on your wedding day. New cinematography styles, like vintage Super 8mm film or high-def wedding trailers, look more like a movie with a creative look and feel.
Video also means sound:
This is an obvious one, but cinema captures audible moments; your mother’s tearful wisdom as she prepares you for the most important day of your life by primping your veil, your father’s first reaction as he sees his little girl wearing a wedding dress, or your grandmother’s voice as she sings along to classic songs as she dances with your grandfather.
These are the rare precious memories that you’ll cherish long after loved ones have passed, and your wedding video will preserve these moments forever. Whether you write your own or go traditional, there’s no other way to document your vow exchange. Video also celebrates the important reception moments, such as toasts and hand selected songs for you to share with your family and friends in the future.
Wedding Videography is no longer boring!
Dismiss and banish the idea that a wedding video will play out as a long and boring home video. Video Save the Dates, Concept Films, Love Stories and Same-day edits are some of the hottest trends in cinematography right now. Your cinematographer has the talent to capture the key highlights as the bride and groom get ready and include footage from the ceremony to be played during the reception.
Guests will always chuckle when they watch the behind-the-scenes look as you and your groom prepare for the big moment. You can also incorporate video into your save-the-dates, engagement announcements, or even as a way to welcome your guests to the wedding destination.
With the popularity of YouTube and other video sites, Wedding Cinematography has become a staple and has gained both popularity and priority when it comes to planning and executing a wedding in the modern era.
