That was one of the questions a couple, friends of ours, had asked us because they wanted my wife and me to enjoy their wedding instead of working as their videographer. Without hesitation, I answered yes! Not because I myself am a wedding filmmaker, but because I know the value and satisfaction that comes with hiring one.
When I got married, my former business partners did the shooting for my wedding video, and I handled the editing. Just looking at the previews, my wife and I were so happy to see the details that we missed or didn't pay attention to during our wedding day. For example, the way we exchanged our vows, the joy on our faces during our first dance, the nervousness before the ceremony began, and more. In one word, we can say we relive our wedding day with the full experience! We see and hear things that we didn't know existed at our wedding until we watched the video. Videography brings a lot of pleasant surprises!
That is why we tell our friends who are getting married that they should have a wedding video. Most of us spend months or even years planning this special day. Therefore, why not hire not only a photographer but also a videographer to fully relive the day again with motion pictures and sound!
Fact: Not having a wedding video is one of a bride's 3 biggest regrets!
