Why Wedding Videos Matter

WEDDING VIDEOGRAPHY

One of the most common things you will hear a bride and groom say is that their wedding "felt like blur!" or "it went by so fast!". Most couples would agree that it would not only be amazing to relive the entire day all over again, but also catch some of the moments that may have been missed or may have already been forgotten.

For any engaged couple who wants their wedding to be documented, photo is usually the first thing that comes to mind. After all, images from your wedding day are traditionally the only thing that remains after the wedding day is over. Wedding cinematography has been on the rise the past couple of years with more and more couples seeing the importance of capturing their special day with both photo and video. Still, some couples find themselves asking the question, "Why would I need or want a wedding video?"

SEE, HEAR + FEEL THAT WAY ALL OVER AGAIN

Video, in general, is more accessible than ever. Through our smartphones, apps like Instagram and Facebook are allowing us to easily capture simple everyday moments on the go. Most of the time, you don't realize how meaningful those impromptu memories are until you look back at those video clips months, or even years later. Now think of all those feelings you get looking back at simple everyday home videos - the laughter, the joys, and the tears they bring. Wouldn't it be great if you could capture one of the most important moments of your life on video, too?

Both photo and video capture stories; they document moments and, in a sense, make time stand still. Wedding photography is essential, of course, but think about actually being able to hear the sounds, see the movement, and experience the priceless emotions of the day in an extra dimension. Video allows you to see and hear every moment in its entirety.

PRICELESS MEMORIES

Moments that bring you back to the conversations you were having with your bridesmaids as you were getting ready. Relive the feeling of walking down the aisle and seeing your groom for the first time. The magical sounds of your vows or even how many times you stumbled as you spoke your vows because of all the nerves; it happens to the best of us! The romantic shots and interactions of just you and your groom during your photo session; catching that sparkle in your eye. The loud applause as you were introduced for the first time as husband and wife! The tears of happiness listening to your maid of honor talk about how happy she is for you, or the tears of laughter after listening to that embarrassing best man speech! Or that spontaneous dance-off you had with your niece who in fact is a better dancer then you are!

When you combine all the beautiful shots, the candid moments, the natural sounds of the day, and the ambient music, it creates a one-of-a-kind one of a kind cinematic wedding film. A wedding film that will be a priceless memory and keepsake for many years to come.

SHARE YOUR LOVE STORY

Video has the great power of bringing people right back into that special moment in time. It doesn't matter if your wedding is big or small; there will always be people who aren't able to attend your wedding, maybe because of distance or simply because you just can't invite everyone on your friend list. With technology nowadays, you have the ability to share your wedding video with everyone! Whether it be through social media, blogs or email. It allows people to feel like they were a part of your special day and witness this big milestone in your life. If you had the chance, wouldn't you love to see a video of your grandparents or parents getting married? Think about watching your wedding video on your 40th wedding anniversary and sharing it with your children or grandchildren one day. Capturing your wedding on video allows you to document history; one that will long outlive the wedding and be passed on for generations to come.

We believe the value of having a wedding video is absolutely priceless. Capturing the sounds, the movement, the emotion, the memories - life's greatest love story. And that is why wedding videos matter.

 

This is us // Husband + Wife Wedding Videographers

HUSBAND + WIFE WEDDING VIDEOGRAPHERS

I’m Steph and he’s Justin. We are husband and wife wedding filmmakers, storytellers, creatives and entrepreneurs. And we have a super cute side kick, her name is Bo.

We met in high school when were were just 16 years old and pretty much have been inseparable ever since. We have always been best friends first and that’s why we just love being together.

After graduating high school, we both went off to college. Justin majoring in video production, he got to work on some pretty cool projects. And I went off to art school to study interior design.

Fast track a few years later, we got married and on our honeymoon read a book that ultimately would change our lives for ever. It was the thing that ignited the flame for everything that would happen next in our story.

About 5 years ago, we started our own wedding videography business where we get to tell love stories of the most awesome couples.

And recently, we have developed a love for real-estate. We have been having so much fun renovating houses and transforming spaces. Maybe one day we will be the next Chip and Joanna Gaines!

But one thing we have always shared a passion for is video. We love being able to document and preserve memories; not just the big moments, but the small ones too. Telling stories about love, life and this incredible journey we all are on.
