Videography: Yay or Nay?

As a professional wedding planner, it’s my responsibility to provide sound advice and realistic options for my wedding couples.

One question that remains to be consistent is:

“Should we hire a videographer?”

My answer: without a doubt…”YES!

Your wedding day only happens once. Your photographer will capture timeless photos and candids of you on your special day. But they are stills. You can’t bring them to life. A video brings your wedding back to life every single time you press play.

My wedding day was a blur. Honestly, I could cry at the thought of it.

I was wedding planner and bride. My mother and maid of honor (my sister) decorated the church while my hair was being styled. I didn’t get any photos with them getting ready.

I helped set up the floral arrangements at our reception venue the morning-of giving us limited time to get ready together.

It was brutal.

I look back and wish I could have a “do-over”. I don’t remember half of what happened that day.

But I can tell you this…

I thank God every day that my husband and I chose to hire a videographer because now I can relive it all. Every day. As I wish.

If we didn’t hire a videographer, all we would have are the memories and the feelings that the photos bring when we look at them.
