Wedding video – yes or no?

Your wedding day is undoubtedly one of the most significant occasions in your life, filled with joy, love, and cherished moments. While photographs allow you to capture beautiful snapshots of the day, opting for a wedding videographer and a professionally produced wedding video offers a priceless opportunity to relive your special day in all its glory. Let’s explore the numerous reasons why hiring a wedding videographer and opting for a wedding video is a decision you won’t regret.

Wedding video looks a lot different today

The wedding video trend has greatly changed in the last decade and instead of several hour footage, a wedding video today looks like a short movie with high quality look, both technically and aesthetically.

Todays technology allows good videographers to be more discreet during the wedding because they don’t need additional lighting (the flash pointed straight in your eye) to be able to film even in the conditions of poor lighting. The cameras aren’t that big, noticeable and heavy, and it is possible that you will notice the photographer more then the videographer!

Preserve the Emotion and Authenticity

A wedding video expertly captures the emotions, expressions, and genuine moments that unfold throughout the day. From the romantic exchange of vows to the heartfelt speeches delivered by loved ones, a video allows you to revisit the raw emotions and relive the magic of the day. These priceless moments can be encapsulated in a way that a photograph alone cannot fully accomplish.

Revisit Moments Missed

On your wedding day, it’s impossible to be present in every conversation, interaction, or special moment. A wedding video provides the opportunity to witness and appreciate moments you may have missed. From the reactions of your guests during the ceremony to the fun-filled moments at the reception, a video ensures you won’t miss a beat and grants you a remarkable opportunity to relish the day to the fullest.

The video as a media, leaves a bigger impact then photography because it attracts our senses with sound and movement.

I will always remember words from a groom: “I will never forget how the flower crown fluttered as she stepped into the church and walked down the aisle.” This is the moment that sticked with him and it was recorded in their wedding video.

Bring Your Memories to Life & Capture the Details

A wedding video adds an extra dynamic to your memory preservation. Through vivid motion, music, and carefully crafted storytelling, a skilled wedding videographer can bring your special day to life. The footage captured enables you to hear the joyous laughter, the tearful reactions, and the sincere vows, enriching your memories and allowing you to experience the day just as it happened.

While photographs excel at capturing individual moments, wedding videos provide a holistic view of your wedding day. A professionally produced wedding video showcases the intricate details you meticulously planned, including the décor, floral arrangements, and venue ambiance. Having a comprehensive recording of these details allows you to appreciate the full picture, reawakening your senses and reviving cherished memories.

Include Distant Loved Ones

Weddings often bring together family and friends from near and far, making it challenging for everyone to attend. Hiring a wedding videographer ensures that loved ones who couldn’t make it to your big day can still participate and feel connected. Sharing the wedding video allows them to experience the day as if they were present, keeping them a part of your cherished memories.

Social Media & Shareable Content

Wedding videos are highly shareable on social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. They allow you to easily share the highlights and key moments of your wedding with a wider audience, irrespective of their physical presence at the event. Sharing your wedding video on social media platforms can help you reach a wider audience beyond your immediate friends and family. This is especially beneficial for couples who have guests from different parts of the world who couldn’t attend the wedding in person. It allows them to be a part of the celebration virtually. It also gives you an option to not share your whole wedding video which could contain intimate moments you don’t want everyone to see.



The best option is definitely to hire a photographer and videographer from the same studio. Photographers and videographers from the same studio work together, know each other and know where to move so they don’t get in each other’s way. They have the same work style and can help each other if necessary. It is often that the photographer or videographers don’t work together and are in each others way (and frame!) because they are strangers. Try to avoid these situations.
