6 Reasons You Need A Professional

Wedding Videographer

Sure you've got your wedding photographer, but video is becoming an increasingly more important means to capture your wedding memories. Here are some of the reasons to consider having your wedding captured by a professional wedding videographer.

1. Save the Date. By the time your wedding day arrives, you will have spent countless hours planning, anticipating, and dreaming of one of the most important days of your life. Then the day finally arrives, and it's over before you even know it. Ask any bride and you'll hear familiar phrases: "It all went by so fast", "Everything was a blur", "I don't remember that!" With video, you'll see all the details you missed, and you can relive your special day again and again.

2. The Sights. Your photographer will capture the highlights of your wedding and provide you with beautiful images, but they won't be able to capture all the sights that video can. Video capture 30 frames per second. Many of today's professional videographers use high-definition cameras that capture stunning images. You've planned and prepared so everthing will look just right - and you've never looked better! You may never wear that beautiful dress again - remember it! Video will capture the motion, the beauty, the subtle facial expressions, and all the action the way only video can.

3. The Sounds. Video captures not only the sights and motion of your wedding, but the sounds as well. Wireless microphones can capture the sounds that even your guests won't hear. Hear your vows with crystal clear clarity. Hear the toasts and speeches exactly as they happened. Hear the music, the cheers, and the laughter of all your closest friends and relatives.

4. Posterity. Imagine having a professionally produced video of your parents or grandparents wedding. Imagine what a treasure this would be to share with them and pass from generation to generation. Now imagine watching your own wedding video with your children or grandchildren. Being able to share these priceless memories with your loved ones is something you can cherish for years to come.

5. No Regrets. A study done by the Wedding and Event Videographers Association (WEVA) surveyed recent newlyweds and found that 98% of newlyweds recommended that brides have their wedding videotaped. Of the 38% of brides that did not have their wedding videotaped, 63% now recommended that future brides hire a professional videographer. They also found that "Brides said video does a better job of capturing the emotions of the day, records the history of the day better, and they strongly feel that future children will enjoy their wedding video more than their wedding photographs."  Watch this couple explain why they wish they hired a professional wedding videographer.

6. Uncle Frank Can't do it. Sure you've got family or friends with a videocamera who are willing to tape your wedding. But as well intentioned as they may be, they just cannot capture your unique celebration the way a trained and experienced professional can. Professional videographers invest thousands of dollars in cameras, microphones, and editing equipment to capture the best images and sound. Most professionals use 2 videographers to capture all the action from multiple angles. All things you can't expect from a family member or friend who should be enjoying themselves at your celebration. Professional videographers then use their experience, training, and creativity to produce a final product that is truly worthy of your special day.

Still not sure you need to have your wedding professionally videotaped? Why not be on the safe side and just do it.   Your wedding is one of the biggest days of your life. You won't have another chance to have this most important day preserved forever!
