Quite often, couples wait until they have planned the majority of their wedding before deciding to hire a cinematographer to film their wedding day. Usually this is because they are keeping a close eye on their overall budget and believe a “video” is something they could possibly do without.
After the party is over, memories fade over time. There are so many things you will miss (or forget) throughout your wedding day and evening that your cinematographer will capture for you to enjoy afterward. With a professional wedding film, you will see the special people in your lives laughing, getting ready and enjoying your big day. You will be able to see what your fiance was thinking and doing before the ceremony, listen again to the special toasts given before dinner, and look back at the people you love that are no longer with you. Hearing their voices and seeing them enjoy your wedding day is priceless….
I think the best way to understand the value is to see for yourself what a quality film looks like. This is Valerie and Brian’s wedding ceremony and reception that took place at the Colony Club in Detroit, Michigan. It was produced and edited by Jamie Honce of 3rd Street Films.
If at all possible, choose a professional cinematographer that will provide you with a breathtaking film that just cannot be produced like this by a well-intentioned friend or family member. You have spent countless hours and thousands of dollars planning for this special day, so leave it to the experienced, talented professionals with multiple cameras to provide you with an heirloom that you can share with your children and grandchildren.
