Thinking of doing without having your wedding video recorded? Read this first.

Yes, photos are fabulous, but video captures things that photos cannot -- like your father's speech, your first dance song, and your Bestman's toast.

 

It's not what you think

Throw out the idea that a wedding videographer means lights-camera-action in your face all day and night. Today's videographers embrace a more documentary style of filming, meaning you might not even notice them until they're handing you a stunning video of your day. Video can also be taken in a variety of styles, from vintage Super 8mm film to high-def.

Video captures the in-between moments

Yes, your photographer will get both posed and candid shots, but for everything in between, you need a videographer. And since there's no posing (you just keep enjoying the party!), you won't have to worry about looking stiff or awkward on film.

Videography lets you experiment with style

You want your wedding photos to be timeless (they're going to be displayed in your home for years to come), but your wedding video can be a little trendier while still looking classic. Try out hip videography styles, like vintage Super 8mm film or high-def wedding trailers for a creative look.

Video means sound

It's an obvious one, but video captures audible moments, such as your mother's tearful words of wisdom as she helps you with your veil, your father's reaction to seeing you in your dress, or your grandmother's laugh as she dances with your grandfather. These are the memories you'll cherish long after your dearest relatives have passed, and a wedding video will preserve them forever. And whether you write your own or go traditional, there's no other way to document your vow exchange. Video can also capture important reception moments, such as toasts and songs for you to share with your family in the future.

Wedding videos aren't hour-long sagas

Banish the idea of a wedding video that plays out like a boring slideshow. Your videographer can capture the highlights as the bride and groom get ready and even include footage from the ceremony to used as highlights only. Guests will love the behind-the-scenes look as you and your groom prepare for your big moment. Or you can incorporate video into your save-the-dates, engagement announcements, or even as a way to welcome your guests to the wedding destination.
