Why you should budget for not only photography, but videography as well...
Some couples don't have a huge budget - which is totally fair, we're not all made of money and sometimes the simpler the better.
But, there is one huge reason why you should always try and prioritise videography, as well as photography. And it's this:
Photos, your video, your dress and a copy of your invites to frame are usually the only tangible items left after your wedding. A video is the only item that will bring back the feeling and atmosphere of your wedding day because it immerses your senses with the moving imagery, the sounds and the spoken words of the day. Videography is an investment in your family’s history, so make sure you budget for it and book it early in your planning process.
What’s absolutely essential to keep in mind is that video is a long-term investment, and pricing should reflect this. When you’re looking at the prices, remind yourself that you will be keeping this forever: longer than your car, longer than that expensive leather couch and maybe even longer than the house you buy with your spouse.
A few thousand dollars might seem like a lot right now, but with every year that passes, your film will be worth more than gold.
Above all, understand that we as artists, have taken great care to create perfectly precise packages. Package prices aren’t arbitrary numbers. The cost is directly related to experience, equipment, time and what you take home when your wedding is over. You get what you pay for.
If you feel that indescribable, magnetic pull when watching a video when searching, then you’ll know you are “onto a winner".
