It started after I saw this wedding on Style Me Pretty. I looked over the pictures and watched the wedding video. Then I showed the video to Mr. T.
Jamie and Brian’s Wedding Story from Lucky Productions Cinematography on Vimeo.
When we created our wedding budget, we addressed the issue of videography and dismissed it pretty quickly. We figured that we’d rather spend our money on great photography instead of splitting that section of the budget between the two and have a mediocre photographer and a mediocre videographer. We figured that we would hang the pictures on the walls of our home, but we would never watch the video.
But after watching this video, I realized that video brings out qualities that photos just can’t. Photos alone never would have been able to tell the complete story of this couple’s wedding: the weather report, the bride’s tears at the news the venue was closing, her bridesmaid’s reassurances.
So I did what any good lawyer would do in this situation: I did some research. Good videography is pricey. We would easily spend roughly the same amount on a videographer as we will spend on our photographer, and I’m not sure I can justify going over our budget by that much.
I found a more affordable DIY option in which you get 5 HD Flip cameras,Sega发售日期, hand them out to guests on the wedding day, and send them back where the footage will be edited into a video. The only problem with this is the quality of the video. It’s obvious that everything was recorded on a handheld camera,小鱼儿六合心水论坛, even if it is HD. To me, that’s like having all our wedding photos shot by my point-and-shoot camera. It’s better than nothing, but not ideal.
So now I’m back to square one. Should we fork over the cash or go without a video? What do you think? If you had a wedding-day video made, is it something that you’d absolutely include if you had to do it over?Tags: chicagovideography BLOGGER Mrs. Treasure Location: Chicago Occupation: Law Student Wedding Date: September 2012 Venue: Saint James Chapel at Quigley Prep/Murphy Auditorium --> PREVIOUS POSTHeating Up For The Kettle Wedding: A Wedding Rehearsal NEXT POSTYou Are Cordially Invited...
