Should You Hire a Wedding Videographer?
Updated: Feb 26
You meet the love of your life, things are going really well, they pop the question and you obvi say yes. Now what?
Well, now you plan the wedding!
Both exciting and terrifying, you are in this, but you are in this together.
You start meticulously planning every detail. From plates to flowers to venue to guests to invitations, every. single. little. detail.
There is a whole lot of thought that goes into a wedding day.
Somewhere down the line, you'll realize that this might be the only time in your life that everyone you and your partner love will be together under one roof.
Then another wave of nerves hit.
(Spoiler: you've got this)
Finally, the day arrives. You wake at the crack of dawn to get ready.
You write your letters to your partner and then you're off to the ceremony.
The day goes by fast.
And I mean like really fast.
Pretty soon you're riding off to your bougie hotel to celebrate your first night of married life. And just like that, it's over.
A few months later you receive your wedding photos back and WOW do you look good. You get to see this day as moments frozen in time.
Years go by and you pop out a few kids, who eventually pop out their own kids.
You eventually bring out your wedding album (which is probably archived on Facebook because who uses actual albums anymore) and show your grandkids your pictures.
They sit in their futuristic hovercraft and tease the old fashioned styles and technology. One of your grandkids exclaims how great it would have been if she could hear you on your wedding day and see his grandad's expression change as he saw you walk down the aisle.
At this point, you've realized that you should've hired a videographer.
All jokes aside, hiring a videographer is generally a good idea if you are a sentimental family-oriented individual. You may not think about it now, but being able to hear the voices of your loved ones again will mean a heck of a lot in the future.
I always like to frame my decisions in a way that would make my future grandchildren proud.
