Wedding Videography + Photography = Great Wedding Memories

August 25, 2009
When planning a wedding, folks are often concerned with the budget and allocation of resources.  It’s only natural, unless one is independently wealthy.  Nice work if you can get it, but for the rest of us, we’d like to think we are getting the most for our money, especially when faced with a large expenditure for a once in a lifetime event.
One of the last items to be considered before the blessed event is videography, which also happens to be one of the first items considered afterwards in the “I wish I would have” category.  Quite often the argument is that since there will be many pictures, video is not needed, and nothing could be further from the truth.  Photos certainly have their place and obvious advantages (portability, ease of sharing, hanging on the wall), but alone they cannot convey the depth of emotion complete with sound and movement that is so evident in a wedding video.
Occasionally I hear someone say “I’ll only watch it once or twice and then put it away, never to be seen again”.  What I hear from folks who have a wedding video of their own is that it is priceless, among their most treasured possessions and irreplaceable, especially as memory begins to fade.  Digital video is capable of transcending storage mediums, meaning that it is possible to retain these complete memories through the ages, past your lifetime and into the hands of future generations.  Imagine your feelings if you were able to dive into the past and see and hear your great-grandmother on the happiest day of her life!
Interestingly enough, another common statement is “photography is the one area of my wedding where I’m willing to splurge, and I’ll cut back somewhere else to make up for it”.  This is perhaps the worst misconception of all.  If you are considering a photographer who is so expensive that you are making concessions in your budget, then the simple truth is you are overspending.  There are a multitude of quality wedding photographers out there with loads of talent AND great rates.  If you pair them with a reasonably priced videography team, then it is certainly possible to have the best of both worlds for the same or even less than the cost of a photographer who has already proved by their exorbitant rates that they care more about themselves than they do about you.  If nothing else, please only hire wedding vendors who realize the importance of making the wedding day all about the two people who matter the most- the Bride and Groom!When planning a wedding, folks are often concerned with the budget and allocation of resources.  It’s only natural, unless one is independently wealthy.  Nice work if you can get it, but for the rest of us, we’d like to think we are getting the most for our money, especially when faced with a large expenditure for a once in a lifetime event.
