"You can replay the most special moments in your life if you have a videographer."

When the doubt of "How worthy is to hire a Videographer for my wedding?" comes up, most couples tend to overthink the matter mostly due to the additional cost that they will have to spend on a videographer. However, you know that it is not always money that is more important in life but memories that can be treasured for the rest of your life, and by hiring a videographer, you can easily make your big day a treasure for life!
Why getting a Videographer important?
No matter how many months you have planned your Wedding day, the day will fly by like flashes. So, it is natural that after the wedding you might feel desperate to remember the precious moments of your big day and it won't do much help if you are to do it with your memory. On the other hand, weddings are always bustling that you might not have had a chance to see everything that happened on your wedding day. Therefore, the possibility is high that you will regret after your wedding if you haven't got a videographer to capture the special moments of the biggest day in your life. Hence, hiring a videographer is very important because one of the responsibilities of your wedding videographer is to capture every special moment that you missed to capture on your wedding day. So, after the wedding, you will have a chance to cherish all the memories of your wedding day for the rest of your life each time you watch your wedding video!
"I did not think I would be so excited to watch our wedding video, but the day went by so quickly! I want to see our ceremony and cocktail hour, which I missed. Though I may only watch it a few times, I think it was worth the money."

In the old days, there were hours-long videos of wedding day stored on CDs and DVDs. However, these days videographers provide you with a 3-4 minute wedding story that almost covers every precious part of your wedding that can be uploaded easily to your social media. Thus, you can share the memory with your loved ones too. Videographers also provide you with full coverage of your wedding in case you might want to live the all-day on your wedding day after like years probably with your children and grandchildren even!

You might have hired the best Wedding Photographer to cover the most joyous moments of your Dream Day. Still, there are some things that photographs cannot capture, like sounds and gestures. So, if you only hire a photographer but not a videographer, it is high that you might miss the movements of your first dance and the cheering sounds of your beloved family and friends in your first kiss, and many other things. However, your videographer will be able to take care of every tiny detail of your wedding with sound, gestures, and movements, very lively so that when you watch the wedding video, you will be able to relive those moments!
“DO IT!!!!! I promise you will not regret spending the money. You may not think you want to relive every minute, but after the day you have been meticulously planning for months flies by in what feels like seconds, you will be desperate for a way to remember it!”

If you are to hire a Videographer, they will move around on the Wedding floor with you all day. Thus, it is always better to hire a Videographer that you feel comfortable working with. Also, do not forget to do a background check for the videographer that you are going to hire. For example, you can check on how many weddings they do per year? How long have they been in the industry? Do they have experience in working with your hired photographer? Have they shot any Weddings before at the same venue? What is the rate of their pricing? What is included and excluded in their packages?
"I regret not having one. I thought that I'd never watch it and I'd have my pictures, but there's a lot of your wedding that, as the bride, you don't get to see. For example, I wish I could see what was going on inside my ceremony tent before I got there. I wish I could see my bridesmaids walk in. The whole thing went by so fast. I'd kill to have more memories of it."
