132 A videography To video or not to video…that is our question. The choice to forgo filming that special day seems to creep up weeks, months and even years later as a huge regret. So what makes that footage so important? Let our expert videographers share their excellent advice. holloway productions – Lance Holloway (est. 2002) According to Lance Holloway, of Holloway Productions, so much can occur during a wedding that a photograph cannot adequately record. Photos freeze moments in time, whereas videos bring those moments to life. A bride may overpredict her ability to remember everything about her wedding day, but a video solidifies the memories of that special day. If a bride worries that a videographer could become a distraction, remember the feedback Lance received from a former client…"barely noticed…like a fly on the wall." Lance's favorite videography moment to capture for a couple is the first look. In that moment, you can see the couple "exhale" for the first time. Check it out - al weddings – Katie & Alex McKown (est. 2014) Katie and Alex McKown, cinematographers at AL Weddings, believe that video synergistically captures an added element to photography. A video records words, music and to some extent, mood. It can also capture the emotions of the groom as he utters, "You look beautiful!" while holding back tears. Some brides ponder the necessity of a video. To those brides, Alex advises to consider just how much a video can capture. A video encompasses the entire wedding day from when the bride gets ready until the reception ends and the happy couple drives away. A video records the wedding day as a movie for the couple to watch, reminisce and remember for years to come. AL Weddings' favorite moment to catch on video occurs when the couple cites their vows. That special moment reminds Katie and Alex why they do what they do. Check it out - on-site productions – Jared Redman (est. 1991) Video keeps the memory alive, according to Jared Redman of On-Site Productions. Most people watch their wedding film on special occasions like a date night or an anniversary. Doing so allows you to relive your day over and over. Those moments that you forgot, a detail you missed or a loved one that passed away is captured requiring only a press of the play button for the couple to see. Hiring a videographer is something every bride should consider. Every wedding differs with many economic variables. Wedding films fall into the category of investments and are valuable to have with quality that will last forever. Jared enjoys capturing the first dance as well as the guests dancing and having a great time at the reception. Etch the memory of your special day into an archive to enjoy for years to come.
