We all know the old wedding videos. A camera with a mic tethered to it. The videographer would go table by table asking people to say something nice to the couple. The video would look jerky, the sayings would all be the same, and the people were almost unrecognizable. A lot of times it was just your uncle who had the camera. Because of these events, a lot of people have shunned videography from their weddings in either attempts to save money or because they don’t see the benefit. Well, we’re here to tell you why you need videography on your wedding day.
Why You Need Videography on Your Wedding Day
The talk of the town
When was the last time that a friend sent you a video they thought was great? For a lot of us, it was very recently. Nowadays, video has become an incredibly accessible medium, much easier than the days of the VCR. Because of this, the video of your wedding is a must. People pass around YouTube clips and TikToks faster than a VCR could rewind a tape. And each of us can hold that technology in our pocket. Once again, another downside to the VCR. No portability. If you want people to see your wedding, see how beautiful it is, you not only want videography, but you need it. If you still need convincing, here’s an article of people praising why you need videography for your wedding day.
All the platforms for videos
Video ha become more a part of the internet than we could have ever imagined even just 10 years ago. Everyone has a Facebook page with video capability. YouTube, Instagram, Vimeo, TikTok, even Snapchat. Almost 5 billion YouTube videos are watched daily. You don’t want to be left in the dust when it comes to your wedding day. People will be able to see your video on one of the many platforms you have on your phone. You can make your enemies jealous. Make you friends inspired for their own wedding days. Even make total strangers realize just what they need to put on the perfect wedding day. Your video can do all of that.
The Oscars are coming up soon. We wrote this article before the nominations, but it will be posted afterwards, so we’re guessing that some really good movies made the cut. Or at least we’re hoping. For those reading in the future, the Golden Globes of 2020 missed the mark with not nominating any women led movies for best pictures (but we digress). We know that movies surround us and are a large part of our culture. Everyone has multiple streaming apps that each have thousands of movies and TV shows on them. If you want to openly go against the culture we live in today, a video is not necessary. We as a culture just understand this medium, so to skip it is to skip out on your friends and family being able to openly enjoy your love for more than just your wedding day.
Let’s not forget about you in this article, as well. Very few people have a perfect memory. We’ve seen videos of the World Memory Championships and have been absolutely astounded. We know we can’t do that, but you still want to remember one of the best days of your life. All the emotions of the day. Every event that happened that will make you laugh, cry, and experience it all over again. Video does this for us. The events held in pristine beauty, remembered better than your mind has the ability to remember. You need not worry all day of your wedding about ensuring you remember everything. There are way too many things going on. Let the video do the remembering for you. Have the day to live in the present while the video allows future you to live in the past.
Ferris Bueller said it best. “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” Don’t miss anything on your wedding day. Live in the present. Celebrate your love. And let us capture it for you. We love to tell stories and your story is exactly the one we want to tell. Book us now, or risk forgetting your own story on the honeymoon.
