Now that we’ve covered the importance of photography in our last blog entry, we thought we would take you through the benefits of having your event captured with video. I bet the thought never even crossed your mind–what with everyone carrying around their smartphone recording devices, why would you need anything else? That’s a good question. Many hosts and hostesses do not necessarily understand the value of having a professional cover their event. Don’t get us wrong; we’re sure your guests can get killer videos up close and personal. But what about your guests? They aren’t in the videos they’re taking. And the videos themselves? We doubt your phone has an fstop. Not to discredit the videos and photos your guests will take; we just want to clue you in on what you might be missing out on.
- Capture special moments you might not see.
As a host or hostess of your special event, you can’t (unfortunately) be everywhere at once. Your guests are having their own experiences. Maybe they are talking about you–how beautiful or handsome you are. Maybe they are cracking jokes or telling stories about you, how you met, embarrassing moments, etc. If you were there, maybe they wouldn’t say those things. If someone had their phone out, maybe those words wouldn’t be shared. But a videographer from afar isn’t within their radar and is the last thing on their minds while they are having fun. You can watch that video later as if you were there, able to see the funny or emotional moments. Without video, you’d miss them.
- Sharing is a possibility.
Hey, remember that event you weren’t able to go to? Well, there’s only so much you can tell. And what about the future? Your brother or sister is too young, your kids aren’t born yet, parts of your family have still yet to bloom. Will you be able to remember all of the details then? Perhaps, but you shouldn’t take the chance. With video, you can easily have extra copies made and share them with all of your guests and family, while saving the rest for the future. If it’s your wedding day, what if your daughter wants to see what your special day was like? Now you can share.
- Relive it.
Watch it again and again. Be there over and over. With professional high definition cutting edge video and with full-coverage, you can feel as though you are in it. And you were! But playing it again, you can smell the smells and taste the food all over again. Having such a treasure can let you rekindle those memories as many times as you want to.
- Audio is irreplaceable.
It is! Nothing is better than the background audio. The video is one thing, but hearing the side remarks, comments, and hilarity happening on the side–you just can’t get that anywhere else. These are your friends, your family, your loved ones all gathered on your big day, sharing it with you and their dumb jokes. You can hear the emotion in their voices, you can hear yourself saying your vows or giving a speech, or just thanking them. All of you together is gold, and the audio can show you a glimpse.
- Your Guests are irreplaceable
One thing that people don’t like to think about are the elderly guests at your event and how they may not be around much longer to enjoy these life moments. If you have a video of your special event, you will see them enjoying themselves while being surrounded by family and maybe saying a few words to you as they are interviewed by the videographer. These moments are priceless and truthfully one of the most motivating factors when it comes to having professional video at your event.
Having Images of a special moment in time are also just as valuable. Unlike video, they can be passed around and shared physically with friends and family that weren’t in attendance. Of course, it’s not the same without a moving visual or audio, but is it also just as special, honing in on a specific scene or moment that occurred candidly. Having a professional photographer and videographer available at your special event will preserve the memories forever.
