Wedding Videographer:
Top 5 Reasons to Hire One for Your Wedding

A lot of planning goes into a wedding. There’s the venue, date, food, flowers, vendors, music… But what about wedding videography? Your wedding videographer will capture your big day, and you can watch and share those moments whenever you want.

If you’re still on the fence, here are five reasons to hire a videographer for your wedding.

1. To Capture Those Important Moments You’ll Miss

Weddings are big affairs. As the bride or groom, you’ll be spending a great deal of time behind the scenes getting ready for your big day, taking photos and greeting your guests. There’s a lot that you’ll miss because you can’t be everywhere at once.

That’s where your wedding videographer comes in.

A wedding videographer will capture those special moments that you miss, such as:

  • Your partner getting ready for the big day
  • Moments between family and friends on the dancefloor
  • Messages from loved ones
  • Funny moments 

We had the privilege of capturing Jared and Whitney’s wedding. It was a big event with many guests and so many things going on during the celebrations. We were able to record those moments they couldn’t see on the day of their wedding, so they could enjoy the full experience now and, in the future, too.

2. To Relive This Day for the Rest of Your Life

Your wedding day is the most important day of your life. It’s a celebration of your union and the start of the rest of your life. 

Wedding videography will ensure that you can relive this important day whenever you want and in a way that photos cannot replicate. Press play, and you can relive the moments of this day as if you were there again.

We served as wedding videographers for Andrea and Chat’s intimate wedding in Seattle, WA. The outdoor affair was held in a stunning forest on a beautiful day. The video footage of that day will allow the happy couple to live in these moments anytime they want and for the rest of their lives.

3. To Share This Special Day with Loved Ones Who Weren’t There

In a perfect world, all of your friends and loved ones would be there to celebrate your special day, but there will inevitably be a few people who cannot make it. Just because they cannot be there in the moment, doesn’t mean they have to miss the celebration.

When you hire a wedding videographer, you can share the moments of your big day with friends and loved ones who couldn’t be there. 

Chad and Becky’s wedding was a fun but intimate event. Now, they can share the footage from their big day with their loved ones who couldn’t attend. Friends and family can also see those behind-the-scenes moments they missed on the big day.

4. To Remember Your Vows, Toasts and Music

Couples hire a wedding videographer to capture the most memorable, heartfelt and funny moments of the day. This includes your vows, the toast at your reception and the unforgettable music everyone moves to.

Just take a look at Morgan and Sean’s wedding video. Her father’s show-stealing speech drew laughs from across the room and highlighted just how special she is to him. Because of the power of videography, these two now relive this special moment whenever they want.

Vows and toasts are some of the most special moments of a wedding celebration, and video footage allows you to remember them.

5. To Have a Family Heirloom That Can be Passed Down

Wedding videography is a special keepsake that can be passed down for generations as family heirlooms. Long after you’re gone, your loved ones can see and relive the joy that you shared on your most special day.

The magic of video is that the viewers feel like they are there – in the moment. That is something that photos cannot capture.

For instance, with Matt and Kalie’s wedding video, we captured behind-the-scenes moments that really encapsulate their love and the beauty of their big day. These are memories that can be shared for generations to come.

A wedding videographer will create a unique, personal and beautiful video of your big day that you can cherish until death do you part.
