Many of my couples say that they would love to have a wedding video but they haven’t allowed for it in their budget. There are so many things to budget for when planning a wedding, costs add up quickly and many couples find themselves having to decide which suppliers will be included in the final list. If it comes down to cutting out certain wedding day costs to suit your budget, don’t cut something as personal and long lasting as the wedding video. I’m not trying sell my product in this blog post but I do want to share a personal view regarding wedding videography. My wife and myself were married in 1983 at that time a wedding video was a very expensive luxury that we could not afford, we have a lovely photo album which we take out at family gatherings, all these years later we often comment, If those pictures could only speak.
WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY VS VIDEOGRAPHY
Photos are timeless they can be saved on PCs and hand held devices for sharing with family and friends they can also be printed and preserved in a wedding album. A photo is a single frame frozen in time allowing you to look at it for a few seconds or minutes, every photo tells its own story. Videography allows you to re-live your ceremony, speeches and sound bites from morning preps. The combination of audio and video work together to relive the emotions from the most important day in your life.
Couples say to me that their wedding day flew by but we are so happy to have a highlights film and a full documentary video of the entire day on USB and DVD. I’ve heard from couples reflecting on their wedding day that their biggest regret was not having a videographer It is a worth while investment that will appreciate in value and let you relive all the emotions time and time again with your children & grandchildren in future years. For me here at Drangan Video its all about persevering beautiful moments in time that pass us by, memories that were often forgotten thankfully now we have the ability now to capture time and hold on to it forever looking at it over again and again. That is the magic of video and what I do at every wedding I record.
