What Can’t I Leave Out of My Wedding Video?
Your wedding video is one of the most important items you will ever purchase. It is a cherished memory that you and your family will enjoy for many years to come. There are certain shots that should be included in your wedding video in order to capture the essence of your special day.
So, what do you need to ask your Videographer to include in your wedding video? Check out our list and take notes.
The Emotional First Look
When it comes to wedding videos, most couples focus on the reception and the speeches. While those are both important parts of the day, they can often overshadow the bride and groom’s first look. That moment is a special one, full of emotion and sentimentality. It’s a chance for the newlyweds to share a private moment before all of the chaos starts.
Some couples choose to do their first look in a more private setting, away from all of the guests. Others choose to do it right before the ceremony, so everyone can witness it. No matter when you choose to do it, make sure you take the time to capture it in your wedding video. You’ll be glad you did.
The Awe Inspiring WalkUp the Aisle
When the bride walks down the aisle on her wedding day, it is an awe-inspiring sight. The love and excitement is clear for everyone to see and it is a beautiful moment that will be remembered forever. In addition, the groom’s emotional reaction is unforgettable. It’s one of my top favorite moments from every wedding I serve. Capturing the walk down the aisle in your wedding video is a wonderful way to relive the memories of the day, and it provides a lasting record of the event.
Music to My Ears- The Speeches
Your vows and speeches are an important part of your wedding day. They are a chance for you to express your love for each other in front of all your friends and family. You want to make sure that these memories are captured on video so that you can look back on them and relive the joy of your wedding day.
Make sure that you work with your videographer to capture these important moments. Plan ahead and let your videographer know what you would like to have recorded. Be sure to rehearse your vows and speeches so that you can deliver them confidently in front of the camera.
Likewise, the toasts and speeches during your reception need to be preserved to listen to and relive the laughter and love.
Not sure if your videographer will be capturing audio on your wedding day? One of the tell-tale signs is actually how much you invested in their service. Find out more: How Much Should a GREAT Wedding Videographer Cost?
The Extra Special Moments
One of the biggest mistakes a couple makes is short changing themselves when it comes to Wedding Video coverage. They do this in two ways.
The first is to not book enough time to cover the special moments at the reception such as Grand Entrance, Cake Cutting, Newlywed First Dance, Parent Dances & Bouquet Toss. But this isn’t the worse thing couples do.
Those extra special moments I’m talking about are the ones that happen alone. Many brides only think about newlywed photos and they forget the newlywed video. Making sure to schedule some time alone with just your video team on your wedding day to capture the love in your eyes as you gaze at each other is so essential to your Wedding Video. Stop and cherish these moments. Sway together in the sunset and allow your videographer to preserve the love you felt in that moment.
The Often Forgotten Details
Admit it, you spend 85% of your wedding planning focusing on the details. You pour over color swatches, fabric, flowers, and center pieces. You spend hours viewing venues to find the perfect one with just the right atmosphere. You waste, I mean invest, days going through Pinterest to get inspired for a wedding cake and theme. And then what do you do? You completely ignore all that work by forgetting to ask your Wedding Videographer to preserve it in your wedding video. I’m not kidding. I’ve had to gently nudge brides about how much they’ll regret not having video and photos of all the hours of work they put into making this day spectacular.
