We didn’t even consider having a wedding video when we got married. We knew we wanted a quality photographer, a pretty venue and for Jenn to have a nice dress, but having a video didn’t even cross our minds. To be fair, when we got married wedding videography was totally different – think chesey home video, but we’d take cheesy over nothing and this is our BIGGEST wedding day regret.
But why? I mean we got photos from the day – that’s good enough, right?
Before we go any further we want to say we are HUGE advocates for wedding photography. We believe you SHOULD hire a photographer for your wedding. We believe photography is just as valuable and important. BUT, we believe video tells a story that photography cannot.
Check out these gorgeous photos our friend Cassidy took at Gil & Kylee’s wedding. You definitely see the love, joy and emotion during their first look.

But, you don’t live life in freeze frame moments. What did they say? What were they feeling? How did they react to each other? Video allows you to savor every detail of the experience, creating memories through recorded real life moments. Here’s the first look video from Gil & Kylee’s wedding day.
In both of these examples you can see the emotion, but there is something different about watching exactly how they sounded, moved, and felt. Your film is one of the most tangible ways to relive your wedding day. It’s the closest thing you can get to actually being there in real life. Imagine the gift you’re giving family members who can’t be there, perhaps your kids and grandkids one day, and most importantly yourselves.
A lot goes into planning a wedding. We know. We’ve been there. But, when it’s all said and done subtle details will begin to fade and we believe that you deserve to remember every moment for years to come.
So, do you need a wedding videographer? Yes. Absolutely.
