If you are on the fence about getting a videographer for your wedding day, I am here to push you right off that fence. Get the videographer, and here’s why.

In the beginning, I wasn’t sure if I wanted one. I was already paying an arm and a leg for a photographer, why do I need both? As the big day inched closer, we called on some friends and made the decision to add two videographers to the mix, and it was the best money we could have spent.

Saturday morning, my husband and I woke up to an email from Fountain Media, Boston telling us our “official wedding video” was ready, and after watching it about a dozen times, we realized it was money well spent.

Videos are able to capture an emotion that images never could. Don’t get me wrong, our wedding photos are stunning and they bring me right back to that day everytime I look at them. But with the video, you get to see the emotions of you and your guests from an entirely new perspective.

I got to witness the blissful smile on my face in the moments before telling Ross to turn around for our first look. We got to see the awe in peoples’ faces as I walked down the aisle and took Ross’s hand for the first time. We were able to relive the pure joy of being on the dance floor with everyone we love and take in the caring glances and smiles that a photograph would have frozen in time.

A video brings that day to life again.

For our wedding video, we asked for a “music video” style that encapsulated the vibe of the entire day. Needless to say, our people delivered.

So if you are getting married soon, add a videographer to your vendor list.
