You have planned your wedding for months and spent thousands of dollars to create a day to remember it throughout your life. Surely, there is no better way to make this day memorable than to make it alive in a movie. Photography is necessary on the wedding day to fix the best moments, while wedding video will also capture sounds, sights and music.
As you need a professional photographer for your wedding, thus, you need a professional videographer for this special day. Do you want the tables and your guests fixed in the film upside-down, or a perfect, Hollywood motion picture? If you prefer the second variant, you should hire a professional with an appropriate wedding camera and equipment.
What should a reliable wedding videography company offer? First, the company, providing the wedding video services, should use professional "three chip" cameras that produce clearer and brighter images than simple "one-chip" cameras, most often sold to amateur customers.
Second, a professional videographer should normally use two or three cameras at the wedding, which allows a more professional wedding video, capturing the sight from different angles.
Third, the company should provide wireless microphones in order to capture all vows and music at your wedding. Consumer camera microphones are not able to capture all the sounds.
Forth, a reliable wedding video company should have a professional editing system, appropriate for film production and give a professional consultation, at which you can get to know all the details mentioned above. Professionals also offer their clients to observe the samples of their work that are the best index of the company's services and quality.
It is worth noting that although video journalism is a relatively new industry, it presents many wonderful possibilities, including the possibilities of various applications of video for your wedding. For instance, different short films can be shot beforehand and then shown at the reception ceremony. You can deal with such themes, as life, prior to the wedding of both the bride and the groom, the first meeting, etc. You can make copies of wedding video either on video cassettes or CDs and use them as gifts to your friends and families, who were unable to attend, or as gifts to all the guests. Today, a very popular option is to have a video montage of childhood photos and dating photos, assembled and edited to music. The ideas are endless; you can even develop them and shoot the movie that will actually make this day remember.
The offer is quite tempting, and what is the cost? Professional video companies offer their services in the range of eight hundred up to ten thousand dollars with an average cost of two thousand dollars. The average cost usually includes four to six hours of filming at the wedding ceremony and the reception, a copy for the young couple, one for the bride's parents and one for the groom's parents. If you plan the wedding video carefully, it is a wise investment.
