There are many decisions to make when you are planning your wedding. There are many vendors to confirm and so many decisions to take regarding décor, clothing, venue etc. And selecting a way of recording the wedding is another important decision that you need to make.
You can hire a photographer for the day or hire both a photographer and a videographer. To understand what services you need, you have to get an idea of what both of these services give you. A photograph can capture beautiful moments of the day but with wedding videography in Melbourne you will be able to see the moments of the event unfold. Not many people are gifted with perfect recall so a wedding video can capture your wedding including the parts that you will not be there to see. There are benefits and challenges to hiring a videographer. You have to decide whether the benefits are sufficient for you to make the decision on hiring them. Wedding videos will be able to perfectly capture the emotions of the day. And if there are any loved ones who were not able to attend the event, you can share the video with them so that they can share in the joy as well.
With a photograph, you will have the moment your family members or friends make their speech at the reception but with a video you will be able to hear the speech in full. And you will be able to see any impromptu dances or activities. And you will be able to share the day with future generations as well. Your children will be able to see the wedding unfold as if they were also a spectator on that day. And there are parts that you haven’t seen in the video such as guest reactions, special messages from loved ones etc. And you will have the memory of the décor that you have spent so much time deciding on with the wedding décor vendor. When you are the focus of the event and there are so many activities that you have to do on the day, you may miss some of the elements that you carefully planned for the day.
There are so many different styles of wedding videography so you have to carry out a lot of research to find something that you like. You will not be able to enjoy the video if it is not shot or edited with quality. Sometimes there can be competition between the photographer and the videographer to capture the perfect shot. A good way of preventing this is to select vendors that have worked with each other before and have some familiarity with the way they work. If they don’t get on well with each other, then there can be an uncomfortable tension on your wedding day that you don’t need. And adding a videographer means one more vendor to the pool that you will have to manage. You also need to consider the costs of the package. Even if you select a few videographers who do the style you prefer, they have to be in your budget range.
