You have your dress, your venue and many other aspects of your big day all planned out. Although you certainly have a photographer. What about a videographer?
There is nothing more special than being able to re-live your big day- as it happens. Can you imagine spending your 10th anniversary watching your vows as they were actually spoken?
Pictures say 1000 words, however videos show the words being spoken.
With that being said, we asked Amy from Eclipse Multimedia and Video to fill us in a little about wedding videography.
– I frequently have wedding couples who are still deciding if they want a videographer or not. At weddings, I quite often have guests that come up to me and say, “I wish we would have had a video of our wedding. There is so much I can’t remember about it.” The day goes so fast and the couple may miss so much of it.
Between preparation, pictures, running around and greeting guests – a couple are often overwhelmed or in a happy daze. And there are so many times when the couple is not even in the same place as the action- like before their arrival to the reception.
A wedding video is not just for the couple- but for their families too. It is also important to capture the family members who are all gathered together in one place. There are so few times when all our loved ones are gathered together in the same place.
Having a videographer instead of a family friend or family member is beneficial- they are focused only on the video, not on the events or catching up with others at the wedding.
When do you arrive to the ceremony?
Depending on the package and the number of angles you have -the earlier we arrive. Simply let us know your requests.
What do your packages cover?
All ceremony packages will cover some before footage/getting ready shots, the entire ceremony and a few shots after the ceremony. (receiving line, etc. ) You can also include the entire receiving line and your exit to the reception as an add-on. We can also include the entire reception as an add-on as well. (your arrival, glass clinking/kissing, toasts, cake cutting, the first 3 dances, etc.)
What about examples of your work?
Couples often ask for examples of my work- I believe this is so important to ask of your videograhper. You should absolutely make sure the person you choose has experience with weddings. Not every wedding is the same. I’m very willing to be creative with each couples unique style for their wedding.
I have so many previous clients tell me how much fun they have watching their videos. They loved to see all the details they missed on their big day. Parents and Grandparents loved to see all the family gathered together.
A wedding video may not be something you watch everyday, but it is something you’ll treasure for a lifetime.
