Still picturing wedding videography as the 4 hour long, boring video shot from the back of the room filmed by Uncle Bob? With terrible audio and shaky footage, that would make it worthy of submitting to You’ve Been Framed? Think again.
Your film does not have to be like a wedding video from the 1980’s, - four hours of long, drawn-out footage. Today, a short highlight’s film between 5-8 minutes that shows clips of the day set to music is the norm. It is a fun way to share a summary of your big day with family and friends that were not able to be there physically.
Gone are the days of bulky cameras, cheesy interviews and poor quality films.
Technology has changed quite a bit in the last ten years, and wedding videography has definitely seen major improvements. We have listed a few ways that things have changed to give you a high quality, beautifully watchable wedding film.
1. The equipment will look similar to your photographer’s camera.
Videographers do not have to use bulky camcorders to capture your big day. Even though the equipment is small, the footage is captured in HD. The equipment is now so compact that they can move as freely as your photographer, without interfering with the festivities. In fact, during all the festivities, most of your guests will not be able to tell your photographer and videographer apart!
2. Your videographer won’t be glued to a tripod.
Without having to use a tripod for the entire day, the videographer has a lot more freedom to shoot from different angles. This cinematographer is using a monopod for stabilization, which allows her to move around freely while still getting beautiful, steady shots. You will be able to get fun, creative shots without being limited by bulky equipment! If you want to get adventurous with outdoor shots during your photo session, your videographer will be able to join in the fun!
3. Having more than one cinematographer will give you more angles for your film.
Why should you have to choose between seeing yourself walk down the aisle and the reaction of the love of your life waiting to marry you? Having more than one videographer gives you a chance to see multiple angles of the big moments throughout your wedding day. When all of those shots are combined, your film will showcase the full story of your big day in all its glory!
4. Videographers can also carry extra, compact equipment that allows for even more creative shots.
Just as your photographer may take some time to get some creative shots outside of the traditional posed pictures, your videographer can do the same. Fun, creative shots of you and your wedding party make a great addition to a trailer or feature film!
