Why We Began Offering Wedding Videography

Our wedding day was perfect. It was hands down the happiest, most fun day of my entire life. 

As awesome as our wedding day was, I do have one big regret. I wish we had hired a wedding videographer.

Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love our wedding photos and they bring back so many happy memories. The thing I didn't realize is how fast the day goes by. I was so full of nerves, excitement, and happy tears that when I think back on it, the whole day is a bit of a blur. Walking down the aisle with my dad and saying my wedding vows to David was such a monumental moment in my life. I was so overwhelmed with emotion that I didn't get to take it all in the way I wanted to.

I would do anything to have a video of those big moments. To hear David proudly profess his wedding vows and promise himself to me. To watch us dance our first dance. Or to hear my sister's wedding toast.

I treasure all of those moments so much, but they went by way too fast. While a photo can say a lot. There is also so much that gets left out.

Hiring a videographer to capture our full wedding day just wasn't in the budget. We couldn't find anyone who offered only a few hours of coverage. So when we created our videography packages, we made sure to include different packages and price points, so there is something for everyone!



Here's a few other reasons we started offering videography:


1. We work as a team

Before we began offering videography, David and I would photograph weddings where the couple had hired a videographer separately. We found ourselves competing with the videographers to get the shots we needed. It was so frustrating! Nothing ruins a gorgeous wedding photo more than seeing the videographer in the background of a perfect moment. But with 4 people running around trying to capture the same moments, it's nearly impossible to avoid.

Now, we have our own video team who works with on wedding days. We work together to plan out shots and coordinate where all of us are going to stand to fully capture the day.


2. Consistency

Our videographers use all of our equipment. It's top of the line canon gear. They shoot with the same canon cameras and lenses as we do. This helps ensure that your wedding video has a consistent look and style to your wedding photos.


3. We direct

On a wedding day, David has a videographer with him and I have a videographer with me. We instruct them on what needs to be captured and make sure that they are capturing strong footage with a similar color tone to our photographs.


4. Team edits

All of us work together as a team to edit, color correct, and produce your wedding video. A whole lot of love goes into these videos.
