Videography Frequently Asked Questions
We recognize that most of our clients don’t hire videography very often. In fact, many people don’t even know what to ask when hiring a videography service. We’ve assembled this list of the most frequently asked questions to help you learn more about our service and to help you make a more informed decision about the Videography at your event.
WHY SHOULD I HIRE A VIDEOGRAPHER?
We Capture Movement and Sound
Photos provide an image of a moment in time, but wedding videos capture both movement and sound. With a wedding video, You’ll be able to watch your first kiss as newlyweds, your first dance, and your grandmother’s amazing dance moves. For as beautiful and artistic as still photos can be, they cannot capture motion or sound—which makes a wedding video a must-have.
It’s so important to hire a videographer who will not only capture the raw footage of your big day, but also edit it down to create an emotional movie, that will truly tell the story of your wedding from start to finish. You’ll laugh and you’ll cry—it’s the closest thing to reliving your wedding day over and over again.
We can capture all the parts of the wedding you might not get to see
Your wedding day will go by very fast, and unfortunately, you won’t be able to see everything. For example, you won’t be able to watch your flower girl walk down the aisle while you’re inside waiting to walk down the isle. You won’t see your mother shed a tear while you’re saying your vows. You might not see your parents or your best friends dancing, while you’re chatting with guests. But a videographer can capture these moments, and allow you to watch them as you would have seen them right in the moment!
We are able to upload your video onto Vimeo. This allows you to easily share your wedding video with loved ones. It makes hiring a videographer great for those who are having weddings that maybe not all of their loved ones were able to attend. Now all of your friends and family can see your wedding day as if they were there!
Watch it Again and Again
You can watch your wedding video and relive your big day over and over again! Imagine inviting your loved ones over to your house for a viewing party, or watching it every year on your anniversary! It creates an amazing addition to a special occasion!
HOW FAR AHEAD SHOULD WE BOOK YOUR SERVICE?
It depends upon the date. Some clients choose to contract a year or more in advance, while some are comfortable waiting until several months prior. Saturdays are the busiest days, so waiting too long to hire a Videographer (or any service) for a Saturday should be done as soon as possible.
WILL THERE BE ONLY ONE VIDEOGRAPHER AT THE WEDDING OR DOES SOMEONE HELP THE VIDEOGRAPHER?
For our Highlight package we have only one videographer there to capture the day.
