This is an article from The Knot magazine I liked:
Yes, you need a wedding video by Jaimie Dalessio
If you are thinking it’s an optional extra, or that hiring a photographe
and a videographer is overkill, you need to reconsider.
Many brides list skipping the video as their number-one regret. Still think it’s a maybe?
Do yourself (and your future kids) a favor and read on to see why we say a wedding video is a must.
A video will catch what you miss…
Inevitably, there will be parts of your wedding day you won’t get to see, like your guests reaction to your first dance,
your parents’ faces during the ceremony or how nervous your groom looked while he waited to se you for the first time.
That’s part of the reason you’re hiring the professional to document it all – so you don’t miss a moment of the day you worked so hard to plan, right? Well, some missed moments may not mean much from just a photo, but a video can help bring them back to life and put them into context.
…and things photos can’t
A video can capture moments in a completely different way than a photo can (think: your dress moving as you walk down the aisle, or your 90-year-old nana going down on the dance floor). It will also pick up conversations you will want to remember, like your sister’s toast or your dad’s speech. The video is really a behind-the-scenes look at your wedding photos, which will show you two laughing after posing for a kiss or your bridesmaids doing a happy dance when the photo session (finally!) ends.So, when it comes to documenting your day, don’t think of photography and vidography as one or the other. Think of the two as a team.
