Yes, there are couples who opted for a wedding film and don’t watch it, but for others it’s an anniversary tradition. What better way to celebrate your marriage than to relive the events of the day when you officially became a married couple? You’ll be reminded of the love and joy felt that day when you watch you and your spouse take your vows, dance with parents, cutting cake, etc. But in addition to these wonderful moments, there will be so many parts of the day that you didn’t get to see: your spouse getting ready, the processional, your uncle busting it out on the dance floor. There will be so much that you will miss during your wedding. A cinematographer will be there to catch those moments.
A wedding film will also allow you to share your day with others, be it friends and family who were there in person or those who were not able to make it. Children also love watching their parents on their wedding day. Many people are especially grateful for the record not just of the day, but of those who were there to share the occasion with them, especially when those loved ones have passed on. Hearing your late dad’s voice wishing you well is an absolute treasure.
Yes, you can ask your friend from college to record key moments using their smart phone. The problem with doing this? Quality, editing, and the chance that you’ll miss key moments. It may seem like this is an easy place to save money, but this is a place where you really are paying for what you get. Not only do professional cinematographers use high quality equipment, but they spend extensive time putting together the final product, going through hours worth of footage, gathering the best clips, adding music, and making an engaging film of your wedding day. You are also paying for their experience. Having done many weddings before, perhaps even at your venue, they know where they need to be when, what angles to shoot from, and how to put it all together to be the ultimate keepsake you are looking for.
The day will fly by and will be over before you know it, but your wedding film will allow you to relive the magic over and over.
