Planning a wedding party has many elements to it. One must decide on the venue, the caterer, flowers, and many other minor details for a perfect day. To help to ensure that everything works smooth (like clockwork) on your day, the responsibility is palmed on to various professionals who are carefully selected by the couple. Among the professionals are Sydney photographers who capture special moments of the big day and sometimes a videographer to film the entire event. This article describes some of pros and cons of hiring a videographer to cover your big day.
Pros: Events that are missed can be re-visited
Although you might have missed the moment, you can always go back to the wedding video to see how it all happened. A good example is the procession during the wedding ceremony. Usually, both partners might miss the early parts of the procession. If this moment is captured either in a video or photographs, the couple can always enjoy watching it at a later date and do not feel they missed out on anything!
Pros: Hear and feel sounds and emotions
With live videos, the couple can hear and feel the laughter, tears of joy, expressions and other emotions of their guests and friends. They can hear themselves too. It would be difficult to capture this by means of just photographs only.
Pros: Different view from another person
Since you and spouse would have other priorities to attend (on the big day) such as posing for photos and entertaining the guests, you (as a couple) might miss out on the many good times your friends and relatives share with each other. The videographer, who is your extra set of eyes can easily solve this problem by recording these good times.
Pros: Relive the memories
When many years have passed down the line, you and your spouse can re-live the special moments of the big day by viewing their own wedding videos. It can also be shared among friends and family through Social Media platforms.
Cons: The cost
Most often due to cost constraints, many couples tend to overlook choosing wedding cinematography specialist. The argument goes as that the extra money spent on these professionals can be passed on as savings towards other items of the wedding list, like a honeymoon overseas or an upgrade to business class on the flight trip to the couple’s honeymoon destination.
The final verdict
A wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime moment and cannot be re-created! Hence, it is important to decide clearly and be selective in choosing the right professionals to do the job.
