We have been in the business for a very long period of time and this is one of those questions which we are asked the most frequently. We took some time and compiled a few answers that might let our readers know what the difference between Photography and Video making is and their importance. Although, the broader vision behind both a wedding photography and wedding video is the same but in practical they are very different departments and one can never act as an alternate for the other.
Why make a Wedding Video?
Your wedding day is the day you dream about all your life, the day has been planned in detail for decades and one day it is all over. In the enormity of the day, it is difficult to take everything in, and there are many things that are missed completely. For example, the Bride won’t be able to see the nervousness of the groom before the vows, her guests arriving and the Groom won’t be able to see his Bride getting ready with the mixed emotional feelings in the morning or arriving outside the church or venue with her Father. A video is the perfect way to capture everything that happens as a precious reminder of your day. Only a video can recall the vows, the speeches, the music and the laughter.
Having a professional videographer means that you do not have to rely on a friend or relative to film your day. Even with their best efforts, no friend or relative that is involved in the wedding will have the time or experience to make sure every important moment is caught on film.
By booking Forever On Film you are securing professionals who film weddings every week, and know exactly what will happen and when. You are also guaranteed a wedding video shot on professional video cameras, and the use of additional microphones to ensure that nothing is missed. We always use tripods to ensure professional shots throughout. Finally, you are not only paying for your day to be filmed, but also to be professionally edited into a beautiful video that will be a lasting memory of your day that you will treasure for years to come.
Why opt for a Wedding Video when you already have a Photographer?
A good photographer will always produce a great photographic record of your day for you, however there are many things that a still photo just cannot recall, such as your vows and the speeches. A video can also capture the fun and excitement of the day, showing your guests enjoying themselves and documenting the many things that have all come together to make your day so special. By having a videographer, so many precious moments can be captured forever to create a lasting memory of your day.
