Why Hire A Wedding Videographer?

Tim Plummer | Wedding VideographerEvery wedding needs a photographer to capture the big day, but what many brides and grooms overlook is hiring a wedding videographer. Wedding videographers can give you an account of your entire wedding day from a different perspective than your own. It’s a beautiful thing to go back and see what really happened on that wonderful day while you were caught up in the excitement of it all.

Just the other day I had a bride email me wanting to know how her wedding video was progressing. She was so excited, and wanted to see it. One important remark she made during our conversation was: “I barely remember the day, it was such a whirlwind.”

A Wedding Video can give you is the ability to someday sit down with your children and show them what mom and dad’s wedding day was like. And if you’re like me, I tell them, “See that’s what we looked like 15 years ago”. They are usually stunned. It’s great fun for all to watch.

There was a bride I spoke with a few months ago; I had shot her wedding video last October and she was so thankful she had us shoot her wedding video, and not for reasons you might think. She had informed me that just weeks after their wedding, her husband’s best friend, and best man, had died in Iraq. I was sad and happy for them. I had shot the last known footage of him at their wedding and they will cherish that video for the rest of their lives.
