My Friend Will Film My Wedding...

Every where I look, people are being hit by the recession and looking for ways to save money. And planning a wedding is no exception. Engaged couples are looking for ways to save money, even if it means cutting important things out of their wedding day such as the videographer, photographer and even the DJ.

Instead of hiring a professional videographer, some couples are going with alternative routes such as asking their friend or relative to film it for them. Yes, this will save you money. BUT, will it preserve your wedding day memories the way you want to remember them?

Don't forget, your friends and relatives are at your wedding to celebrate your marriage. Do you really want them "working" on your wedding day and possibly missing important events such as: the bride walking down the aisle, your first kiss as husband and wife, the best man's toast, your first dance or your brother break dancing on the dance floor?

Professional videographers have the experience and knowledge to ensure all the important events of your wedding day are captured. A videographer will know the best angles to film from, keep a steady camera and will have multiple sources of audio available to ensure that the vows, readers and officiant are heard clearly. Professional videographers also spend many hours editing your video to ensure a truly priceless memory.

Do you really want to entrust your wedding day memories to a family member or friend? They are attending your wedding as a guest and should be free to have a good time. Let the professionals capture your wedding memories and provide you with a priceless treasure to cherish forever.

Reasons to Hire a Professional Wedding Videographer

I often hear many couples say they wished they would have hired a professional wedding videographer. Some couples skip the video because it's not in the budget. Or a family member or friend offer to film the wedding instead. While this might seem like a good idea at the time, it's not always the best solution.

Professional videographers are experienced and know just how to capture your wedding memories. We create a living memory of your wedding day that you will be able to cherish forever.

Keep reading to find out the advantages of having a wedding video.

1. Relive your wedding day. It goes by quickly.
A wedding video lets you relive your wedding day over and over again. Will you remember the tears of joy you cried walking down the aisle? Or the nervousness in your fiance's voice as he said his vows? Will you recall your dad's touching toast? Video captures all the memories, sounds and emotion of your wedding day.

2. You will miss a lot. While you would like to see everything that happens on your wedding, you can't be everywhere. A wedding video will capture all those missed moments such as: your fiance getting ready for the ceremony, your bridal party walking down the aisle, funny moments tha happen during your photo sessions, your brother break-dancing on the dance floor...etc.

3. People don't live forever. Video will help you remember those who attended your wedding and are no longer with you. They will forever be remembered. You can share those memories with your children and grandchildren.

4. Video is a moving picture with sound. Video captures all the memories, emotions and sounds of your wedding day. What better way to relive your wedding day than hearing your vows all over again and the toasts made by your dad, maid of honor and best man.

5. Quality is everything! Even though Uncle Joe wants to film your wedding for you, think twice before taking him up on his offer. Has Uncle Joe ever filmed a wedding before? What type of video equipment does he have? Will his shots be steady or shaky? What will the final product look like? With a professional videographer, you don't have to worry about any of this.

A professional videographer will be experienced at shooting weddings. And our number one goal is quality! We have the experience and equipment necessary to provide you with a video you will be proud to show family and friends.
