Most couples are consumed with the activities of planning their wedding and reception, yet they forget that the special moments from each event has to be captured. Having a video of your special day may be the best idea. A reminder of your guests, special moments, or speeches given at your reception, may be among the novelties you may miss if you opt not to have a video made.
As a newly married couple, it will be as if you are in a dream, and you will be unaware of many of the things going on around you. Later as the weeks, months, and years go by, if you have a video of your wedding day, you will be able to enjoy those moments as many times as you want.
To find the appropriate videographer for your day, get recommendations from others. Seeing their work is a must. Perhaps you have a friend that has a video from their wedding, and they can show you how it turned out. If not, ask the videographer if you can see his or her work. Once you see the equipment used, the quality and actual style of their product, you will know who the right one is for you. Look for quality, because you really want to get what you pay for.
Some may not have the money in their budget for a videographer, or photographer. A friend, family member, or guest may be available to make a video for you. Make sure you ask pertinent questions, and give ideas as to what you specifically want in your video. Remember that you are paying for it. Choose a style that fits you and your mate.
Some styles available are Documentary, Memory Lane, or Rough Category. Documentary style consists of the actual wedding day and events, and your guests. Memory lane incorporates old videos or photos of the bride and groom growing up. Rough Category style would include every single detail of wedding. A style called Unedited Version may be even more exciting for you, because it captures the feelings, emotions, and activities of your special day in specific detail. This option is the least costly of the styles mentioned.
When asking the videographer questions, relate to them which style you prefer. Make sure you sign a contract. Then sit back, and enjoy your ceremony and reception, because you can see everything you missed at a later time. Spend time on your honeymoon, or on subsequent anniversaries enjoying what you may have missed!
