Matt Philipenko of Life’s Legacy Productions offers some advice on why you want to have a professional videographer at your wedding –
Why book a Wedding Videographer
|Sure you’ve got your wedding photographer, but video is becoming an increasingly more important means to capture your wedding memories. Here are some of the reasons to consider having your wedding captured by a professional wedding videographer.
1. Save the Date.
By the time your wedding day arrives, you will have spent countless hours planning, anticipating, and dreaming of one of the most important days of your life. Then the day finally arrives, and it’s over before you even know it. Ask any bride and you’ll hear familiar phrases: “It all went by so fast”, “Everything was a blur”, “I don’t remember that!” With video, you’ll see all the details you missed, and you can relive your special day again and again.
2. The Sights.
Your photographer will capture the highlights of your wedding and provide you with beautiful images, but they won’t be able to capture all the sights that video can. Video captures 30 frames per second. We use high-definition cameras that capture stunning images. You’ve planned and prepared so everything will look just right – and you’ve never looked better! You may never wear that beautiful dress again – remember it!
3. The Sounds.
Video captures not only the sights and motion of your wedding, but the sounds as well. Wireless microphones can capture the sounds that even your guests won’t hear. Hear your vows with crystal clear clarity. Hear the toasts and speeches exactly as they happened. Hear the music, the cheers, and the laughter of all your closest friends and relatives.
Imagine having a professionally produced video of your parents or grandparents wedding. Imagine what a treasure this would be to share with them and pass from generation to generation. Now imagine watching your own wedding video with your children or grandchildren. Being able to share these priceless memories with your loved ones is something you can cherish for years to come.
5. No Regrets.
A study done by the Wedding and Event Videographers Association (WEVA) surveyed recent newlyweds and found that 98% of newlyweds recommended that brides have their wedding videotaped. Of the 38% of brides that did not have their wedding videotaped, 63% now recommended that future brides hire a professional videographer. They also found that “Brides said video does a better job of capturing the emotions of the day, records the history of the day better, and they strongly feel that future children will enjoy their wedding video more than their wedding photographs.
6. Uncle Frank Can’t do it.
Sure you’ve got family or friends with a video camera who are willing to tape your wedding. But as well intentioned as they may be, they just cannot capture your unique celebration the way a trained and experienced professional can. Professional videographers invest thousands of dollars in cameras, microphones, and editing equipment to capture the best images and sound. We use 2-3 videographers to capture all the action from multiple angles. All things you can’t expect from a family member or friend who should be enjoying themselves at your wedding. Professional videographers then use their experience, training, and creativity to produce a final product that is truly worthy of your investment. Still not sure you need to have your wedding professionally videotaped? Why not be on the safe side and just do it. Your wedding is one of the biggest days of your life. You won’t have another chance to have this day preserved forever!
An email from one of their customers:
When you think about your wedding day you want everything to go perfect, and remember every aspect of that special day. We had made the decision to hire Matt as our videographer to hopefully capture the important moments and moments we did not even get a chance to see the day of our wedding. When we received our video back of our day Matt captured more than those little moments, he captured the moments we would have never even thought of capturing along with the most important aspects of that day. The organizational skills that Matt has is amazing in every way possible and even our guests could tell he takes pride in what he can accomplish for a bride and groom. The finished product that we received from Matt brought tears, laughter, and memories we will never forget of that special day. The tears were joyful tears of being able to relive those moments, and the laughter was because we were able to see some things that happened behind the scenes that added detail to that day. We hired Matt and chose the highest package because we wanted to make sure everything was captured on film and we also received the love story with slideshow. That is something we have forever and will always be able to look back on. We could not be happier with what Matt has provided us and done for our special day. We would recommend his services to anyone and let them know they will never be disappointed. Thank you for all that you have done to capture those special memories on camera Matt. We will be able to have this for a lifetime and our children and their children be able to see what our special day was like. Thanks again!
