As we mentioned if you get full wedding video coverage of your ceremony and reception it will be full of precious personal moments that you will treasure forever. This could be the very last opportunity to capture the images and voices of loved ones that you may never see again! You MUST find a way to at least afford video of your ceremony but if there is any way possible get a full coverage wedding video package. Whether you take advantage of our spectacular wedding video package prices or hire somebody else to shoot your wedding video... it will be worth a thousand times what you pay for it at some point in time.
Why you should add video to your wedding package:
"This may be the last time you can capture ALL of your family in one
place and at one time! I don't know how many brides and grooms have come
up to me thanking me for pushing them to get a videographer to document
their day. The number one reason they are thanking me is because they
have since lost a grandparent or a loved one and are using this video to
memorialize their time and memories of this person. They will have this
video to show their own children and grand children (when the time comes) of their
grandparents and others that have since passed on. Often, the person in
question is speaking to the bride and groom and hearing their voice will
bring emotions and life to the "picture".
It becomes a historical value that cannot be replaced with a still shot...
this is why I tell brides and grooms YOU MUST find a way to afford the videographer...it is a need!"
"Studio Events has perhaps stated one of the best reasons for why bridal
couples should incorporate professional video into their wedding plans.
We were booked for a wedding on August 14, 2010. We were informed that
on August 18, 2010, just four days later, the bride's grandmother had
died. There is no doubt that our video images of the grandmother were
the last images taken.
There also is no doubt in our minds that
whatever value the family placed on their decision to have professional
video for their wedding that value has gone up 100 fold. In addition the
family wants to add a short in memoriam to their wedding video to honor
the bride's grandmother."
We here at A BETTER DJ AND PHOTOGRAPHER had a similar experience... less
than a week after the wedding the Bride's grandmother passed away. She
was so thankful that we had talked her into doing the video and was
tearfully surprised when she found out that we had taken some special
videos and photos of her grandmother that she didn't even know about...
including clips of her with each of her great-grandchildren
