Why A Wedding Film is
Just as Important as Your Photos
Video captures motion and sound
Photos can capture a moment in time and are wonderful to have. Your photographer is normally one of the first three vendors booked for a wedding. But if you only have photographs of your wedding, your missing the big picture! You won't hear the inspiring toast the best man made or see the crazy dance your best friend did. With a wedding film from SK Videography, you will see and hear your fiance reading your love letter, reciting his vows or see the anticipation waiting for the first look. You will hear the funny remark your officiant made during the reading and everyone's laughter. You will even see things you missed while you were busy. You get none of that with photographs.
Modern wedding films are amazing
If your parent's have a wedding video, it is likely over 2 hours long and consists of sudden jerky movements, shots of the floor, poor video quality, audio that can barely be heard and long sections of boring footage. These days videographers use high-def 4k cameras, professional audio gear and stabilization equipment to capture rock solid audio and video. We also have fierce software editing skills and use them to assemble a short Hollywood style highlight film with background music and voice over audio to tell the story of one of the most important days of your lives.
You will regret it if you don't budget for a wedding video
Google it and you will find the number one regret brides have after their wedding is not hiring a wedding videographer. Once the day is gone, you can't get it back. One of the best things about a wedding day film is that all of your friends and family will be there and your video will capture important family members that may be gone in a few years. Sure you could have a friend or relative record your wedding on their iphone or camcorder but trust us, the end experience will be very disappointing. They do not have the skill and equipment necessary to create the type of wedding video you deserve.
Wedding highlight videos are easy to watch and share
With today's technology, a simple click will enable you to share your video with anyone with a phone, tablet or computer. Those that attended your wedding will be amazed to see the whole day condensed into less than 10 minutes and friends and family that couldn't be there will feel like they were! Your future children and grandchildren will have fun seeing your younger selves on your biggest day. Some brides or grooms think they look silly on video. Many couples think they will only watch their wedding video once. Most quickly find out they will watch it at least every year on their anniversary and sometimes more!
Professional wedding videos aren't as expensive as you think
Compared to the cost of venues, caterers and florists & decor, a wedding video doesn't cost as much as you might think. We offer a variety of packages to fit different budgets and can create a custom package just for you if needed. If your budget is tight, you might consider cutting corners on things that won't last past the day like wedding favors, flowers or even a smaller cake. If you have to make sacrifices, we think it's much more important to capture the memories of your special day rather than splurge on things that won't make a difference later.
We have fantastic photographs and sweet wedding memories, of course—but now I kind of wish we had video of my dad's speech so I could again hear exactly what he said, and of my husband playing violin during the reception. Because I think—someday—our kids would like to see it too.
