Weddings can be financially-challenging during this time of the pandemic. From wedding invites to the reception, wedding preparations may cost more. In light of this, most couples often overlook hiring an official videographer. If not overlook, some tend to scout for a good videographer a few weeks before their big day. Nonetheless, below are some of the most practical reasons why it pays investing in a good videographer that’s worth every cent of your hard-earned money.
1. Videographers are a sucker for details.
Your wedding is a once in a lifetime moment and so it goes by fast. Every moment counts and that is why hiring a videographer gives you an assurance that all the most kept moments and details of your wedding will be captured. A good videographer knows how to catch every detail like the lace and pearls on your wedding dress, the flowers you walked past when you had your first look, and the table arrangements at the reception. Mind you, even the moment when your partner catches a glaze from the wedding altar towards your direction will also be captured. These detail shots are incorporated into your wedding video to capture the essence of your day.
2. There are enough movements and coordination in videography.
It is your videographer’s duty to capture the most awaited motion of your big day. Your first kiss, first introduction, and your first dance as a married couple. More than that, you will be able to capture your parents’ message, your friends’ well wishes, even your uncle’s crazy dance moves. People age and life goes on after your wedding, but your captured moments and memories with your guests during this significant day will serve as your time capsule that you can reminisce in the future.
3. Your videographer takes talent in putting music arrangements in your video.
More than the impressive camera angles and timely shots, your official wedding videographer will make sure to put the right groove and jazz to suit the mood of the captured moment. This is why it is very important to hire a wedding videographer because it further adds sensation and art to your most endearing moments like your first kiss, first toast, exchange of vows and promises, and heartwarming messages from your guests.

4. Your wedding videographer is your second lens throughout the day.
Wedding videographers literally move around during your wedding. While blending into the setting, videographers bounce around to film some parts of the celebration that you may not see. You and your SO will be able to watch how you two got ready for the day, the bride can rewatch the expression of her father as they walk down the aisle together, and you can see your guests’ endearing reactions as they wait and watch for your walk down the aisle. Simply put, your videographer is your second lens to capture the moments that you were not able to witness during the entire day.
5. Videographers continue to hone and upgrade their skills for your big day.
Not known to many, wedding videographers take much of their time in improving their craft one wedding after the other. As some of you might ask why it is still preferable to hire an official videographer considering the number of guests with their handy smartphones and cameras, it is because covering such a significant event requires not only immeasurable skill and talent but also state-of-the-art equipment and devices. Much more than this, it also requires good time management to go from both ends (bride’s and the groom’s) and still be able to come up with a same-day edit video. All these and more are the practical reasons as to why a couple must invest or at least set aside a considerable budget to hire a wedding videographer.
