If you’re even remotely considering a wedding videographer, you’ve got to read this. I am not going to give you a sales pitch on why you should choose NC Media Pros, but if you’d like more information on our services you can use our contact form to send us an email.
If budget is your main concern, there are plenty of options out there from amateurs who are just getting started to professional grade cinematographers. A lot of times, I hear people that are thinking about getting a videographer for their wedding, but they’re just not sure about the extra expense. It usually comes down to the last minute whether or not the bride and groom decide to book someone, or they receive the service as a gift from from a relative. Sometimes, budget adjustments can be made and the memories can forever be preserved through sound and motion. However it can happen, I strongly suggest booking a videographer.
I am sure you’ve heard the saying, “a picture is worth a thousand words.” I definitely agree with that, and we have worked with some of the greatest wedding photographers in the southeast. If you’ll excuse me for a minute while I get nerdy… If one picture (one frame) is worth a thousand words, and you get a 3-5 minute wedding video at 24fps (frames per second), that’s between 4320 and 7200 words. I don’t know any photographers that shoot over 3000 images at a wedding, much less deliver 2000. While recording the ceremony, we typically use 5 microphones to capture audio and sync in post production. I say that to say this, photographs are silent. You cant hear the emotion of the vows being read, the sermon being given, or the letters being read from bride to groom and vice versa. Will you remember the words spoken by your officiant or songs sung by close friends? Don’t let your story be silent. Your special day deserves to be preserved in high quality video and audio. See Merrill and Ben’s wedding below, and listen to the sermon being given.
Another reason to hire a wedding videographer is to be able to share your day with those who couldn’t make it. Maybe your family from out of town weren’t able to make it. Why not share your ceremony and highlight film with them? It’s easy with online delivery and also USB drive delivery.
In conclusion, don’t let your budget keep you from sharing your day in high quality audio and video, or with those that couldn’t make it. You can always book before your wedding, but not after the day has passed.
