Do I need a wedding videographer?

Updated: Aug 17, 2023

Weddings are already so expensive....

"do I really need a video?" (You ask)...

"Yes you do!" (We answer).

(Here's a quick teaser from our day with Sarah & Dave)

No, but in all seriousness, the decision to hire a wedding videographer depends on your personal preferences, priorities, and budget. We've put together a few important factors to consider before making your mind up, and why we think it really is worth it.

  1. Memories and Moments: A wedding videographer can capture moments and emotions that might not be fully captured in photographs. Hearing your vows, speeches, and laughter can evoke powerful emotions and create lasting memories.

  2. Cinematic Experience: A well-edited wedding video can offer a cinematic experience that perfectly captures the mood, ambiance, and essence of your special day.

  3. Sharing with Others: Having a video enables you to invite absent friends and family members to witness your big day. You can also revisit it on special occasions, share it with your young ones, or relive the day on anniversaries.

  4. Multiple Perspectives: A videographer is able to shoot several angles and perspectives of significant events, like the first dance, toasts, and candid interactions.

  5. Professional caliber: A professional videographer has the know-how and tools necessary to create an exceptional video with superb sound, steady camerawork, and innovative editing.

  6. Schedule: Due to the event's bustling schedule, you may miss certain events or nuances on your wedding day. A videographer may capture those instances so you can see them when you revisit the day.

  7. Photography vs. Videography: While photography captures still moments in time, videography adds motion, sound, and context. You can choose to have both for a comprehensive memory of your wedding.

  8. Personal Preference: While some people are happy with just pictures, others place considerable value on having a wedding video. Consider what resonates with you and your partner.
