On a special day such as your wedding, you’ll certainly want a permanent and visual record of the whole event so that you can watch it again and again in the distant future. Although photographs are able to capture a snapshot of moments throughout the day, a wedding video will capture every single second of your special occasion. With the benefits of sound and real-time motion, hiring a wedding cinematographer can enhance the wedding video through a professional camera operator, high-quality equipment, and good video editing. Here are some more reasons why you should hire a wedding cinematographer:
To Feel The Atmosphere
The first and most important thing to say is that nothing will capture the atmosphere of your wedding better than a professional video. Pictures cannot properly preserve the memories of the bright morning sunlight filtering through the stained glass church windows or the sound of the excited murmurs, then the silence as the guests stand to welcome the arrival of the bride. These moments will be missed and forgotten if no one were there recording videos of your wedding day. The incorporation of sound can recreate the atmosphere much better than the best photograph on that day. This is what wedding cinematography can give you - an opportunity to relive the magical day.
To Watch The Reactions
Professional wedding cinematographers will be able to capture the live reactions of everyone as the bride and groom get married. Utilizing their editing skills, they will be able to transition between the important moments of the ceremony and the reactions of the guests as the happy couple says their vows. How great will it be to see the tears of joy from the bride’s father as his daughter finally gets married? They say a picture paints a thousand words; a video will paint ten thousand words.
To Listen To The Speech
One of the highlights of any wedding reception is the best man’s speech. Often cheeky and humorous, this is something that you will definitely want a recording of. See the changes in emotions as the best man finishes with a heartfelt best wish that makes you want to cry because of how sweet it was. A wedding video allows you to re-experience this.
To Record The Things That Photographs Can’t
Maybe your aunt who lived abroad has come to join in the celebrations but enjoyed the day so much that she is now drunk. A wedding video will capture her adorable attempt to dance as she stumbles into everyone on the dancefloor. It is these unexpected moments that make your reception great, and a picture could not capture this as effectively as a video can.
To Be Entertaining And Enticing To Watch
A good wedding cinematographer will be able to edit your day of celebration into a short 40-50 minute video meaning you will see both the highlights of the day and some moments that you might have missed with your own eyes. The well-edited video will be attention-grabbing and fun to watch again and again, which would be more entertaining than flicking through a big album of photos.
Why Not Have Both?
Having a wedding video is great, and if you choose to hire a wedding cinematographer, it doesn't mean you can’t hire a photographer too. A growing number of couples are choosing to hire both to capture their big day and enjoy the results of their work. These people are professionals and will work together to ensure the preserving of your wedding memories goes smoothly.
