5 Reasons Why You Need to Think About Your Wedding Video Now
If you're currently considering whether or not to hire a cinematographer or videographer for your wedding, elopement or intimate gathering, let us stop you right there. Video is without doubt one of the best investments (alongside your photographer and your partner!) you can make. It's so much more these days than a point and shoot that you think you will just hear your 'video voice' on. With music played over your wedding, slow motion to make you look like movie stars, and the emotion to rival an oscar winning drama, here's Fine Art Curation members Jacob & Pauline to talk us through their Top 5 Reasons Why You Need a Videographer...
1. A WEDDING VIDEO EVOKES SO MUCH MORE EMOTION THAN PHOTOS
A video has so much more ways how to evoke emotions compared to a single photograph. If your wedding video is in good hands, your videographer will use filmmaking tools and techniques to create a wedding video which will be the exact reflection of your wedding day and you and your fiancé as a couple. It can be joyful, dramatic, romantic, wild, anything you can imagine is possible. Photographs are a fantastic way to preserve memories, and we love them, but they just can’t be as emotive as your wedding video.
Music and sound makes more than a half of any movie you have ever watched, compared to the images. The right choice of music, which goes hand in hand with the video evokes so many beautiful emotions. The right choice of music together with good looking video will bring tears of happiness and joy to your eyes, or send shivers down your spine the first time you see it! The moment you see your film for the first time can often feel as emotive as your ceremony or your first dance felt on your wedding day.
2. YOU CAN RELIVE YOUR VOWS
Hearing your partner’s voice, him or her saying once in a lifetime words of your vows is priceless. Words fade with time, but your wedding video will remind them to you in the years and decades to come. Don't forget - You can often get two types of video:
- Highlights - often between 3-5 minutes
- Full film capturing the whole wedding day - that’s where your vows will shine. This is usually 20 minutes long
3. WATCHING YOUR WEDDING VIDEO SEVERAL DECADES LATER IS LIKE TRAVELING BACK IN TIME
It is magical to watch your wedding video 30-40 years after your wedding with your nearest and dearest. It’s priceless to see you and your fiancé laughing, dancing, be happy, and to hear their voice. Imagine if you could see your grandparents at their wedding day, young, as you never knew them. This is how it will be for your children and grandchildren and it will be more and more magical with every year to come.
4. YOU CAN RELIVE YOUR WEDDING ANYWHERE YOU GO WITHIN JUST A FEW MINUTES
It takes time to go through your photos, and you usually need to plan ahead to go through your gallery. There is nothing better than to make a cosy Sunday evening with your wedding photos, but how often will you do it?
With a wedding video, you can relive your wedding day within 3 or 4 minutes. It will take you back the moment you hear the first tones of your music and will be with you all the time on your phone.
5. A WEDDING VIDEO GOES HAND IN HAND WITH YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY
We cannot imagine a wedding without wedding photos. Videos and pictures complement each other, and each has its place. You watch your video with your partner once in a while, but you can place your favourite photo in a lovely frame and see it every day you come home from a long day at work, it will cheer you up. That’s why it is essential to have your photos and videos look and feel the same, there are many great styles, but your wedding gallery and your film should match.
