A Video is Worth a Thousand Pictures . . .
They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. If that’s the case, then a video must be worth a thousand pictures. One of my biggest regrets that I have now, looking back on my wedding, is not hiring a videographer. Don’t get me wrong, I love to relax on the couch every now and then and flip through my wedding album. And the framed portrait of my husband and I walking down the aisle always makes me smile (unless he’s done something to make me mad, then I like to roll my eyes at it.) But the more I see of professional wedding day videos as I browse wedding websites and watch the footage of newly married friends, the more I get a twinge of jealousy that I too can’t sit down and replay one of the best days of my life in moving images rather than still photos.
With all the technology out there today we film every little moment in our lives. From graduations and birthday parties to the birth of our children and Christmas pageants. Why wouldn’t you want to capture the single day in your life that will be the start of your future in a video as well? Jared McMillan, founder of LOE Productions, feels the same way. McMillan says that while photos are wonderful keepsakes to decorate the house with and look at from time to time, a video is a more natural, memory evoking way to look back on your wedding day, giving you the moment captured by the photo as well as the moments before and after.
Videography has grown by leaps and bounds over the years, from the worn looking, grainy footage of our parents to crystal clear imagry and movie theater like editing. Don’t settle for your Uncle Dave in the back of the church with his hand held recorder. Hire a professional videographer and watch yourself star in your own movie on the most important day of your life.
Don’t want to give up those beautiful photographs? There’s no need. Some videographers, including Jared at LOE Productions, offer packages with both photography and film so that a bride need not choose or pay the extra expense of booking two separate vendors.
