Should You Hire a Videographer for Your Wedding?
categories: videography, Wedding Inspiration, Wedding Resources

You probably saw this coming but for the record, we have a firm answer to the question: should you hire a videographer for your wedding? Clearly the answer is YES!!! We went straight to the experts at Something New Media Weddings to get you the insight you need into this wedding planning decision.

In a recent blog post, Something New Media lists 5 reasons why you should hire a videographer. Here’s 3 of them:

Relive the Moments You Missed: As a bride or groom, it is impossible to be everywhere on your wedding day. There are moments that you’ll miss such as your fiancé getting ready before the ceremony, your guests arriving and sharing their excitement with each other or your grandfather wiping a tear from his face during the ceremony…

Hearing Your Vows: …While photos do a fantastic job of capturing the emotion of the day, your wedding film will allow you to hear the personal vows that you exchange with your fiancé, the tone in your voice and the laughter of the audience.

Slow Down Time: …your wedding film will be able to take you back in time and re-experience the butterflies, excitement, love and all around happiness of your wedding day.

We’re not exactly sure why hiring a videographer/cinematographer continues to be an optional wedding vendor in couples’ minds as they plan their weddings but we hope you hear our pleas and take them to heart…you MUST consider a videographer/cinematographer an essential wedding vendor!

Wedding Trend: Drone Film Footage from Serendipity Cinematography
categories: Trends, videography

By now you’ve seen or at least heard about drones, right? Well, it was only a matter of time before cinematographers started using them at weddings. That’s right, professional video/cinematographers are actually using drones at weddings! Since we like to get the full story on any new wedding trend, we asked Elite Circle cinematographer Serendipity Cinematography about this cutting edge technology that is starting to be a popular trend in the wedding world.

Before you jump in and decide you MUST have drone footage at your wedding, though, there are a few things you need to know. Serendipity owner Taryn Bills shares her knowledge about this new and exciting technology:

We always want to be on the cutting edge of technology so we wanted to integrate it {drone footage} into our wedding films. It offers such a cool element to our films and really allows us to take things up yet another notch. 

The challenge is that the ability to fly the drone depends on many factors on a wedding day with the biggest one being weather. If there is a lot of wind it is a no go and since we can’t predict those conditions, it’s currently not something you can specifically hire us for. We fly it when possible. 

Serendipity Cinematography is known for their diligence when it comes to adopting any wedding trend- they’re always on the cutting edge- but they are also dedicated to safety so they made sure the film crew was properly trained. Because we need to consider people’s safety first, we actually hired someone to come out and train us on how to properly fly the drone. You could really hurt someone with one if it crashes so we have taken the time and money to make sure we are well practiced. We spent weeks flying it before we brought it to a wedding. And we fly it only for establishing shots or pre-ceremony shots. We never fly it when people are around for safety purposes and noise purposes. Yes, they are loud!

Groundbreaking News in Wedding Cinematography
categories: Trends, videography, Wedding Inspiration

Elite Circle cinematography company Serendipity Cinematography, a well-established film company in Arizona that’s known for being on the cutting edge of technology and supreme customer service, just told us about a “game changer” in the film industry. For them to say that, we knew it must be big news.

Serendipity now has the ability to share wedding films that looks just like a DVD except for the fact that your wedding film is not a DVD. It’s actually online. This means that your wedding film is able to be viewed (featuring an interactive menu) on your smart TV, computer, phone, or tablet. The entire film, along with all the various features available, can be viewed ANYWHERE you have an internet connection. And anyone you share the link with can view it too. This. Is. Amazing!

Here’s the home page of the first film Serendipity has created using this new platform:

And here’s one of the extra features pages:

Only 100 companies in the nation have access to this new platform and Serendipity Cinematography is 1 of them. That fact alone should tell you that Serendipity Cinematography is a company to keep your eye on (and hire for your wedding cinematography).

Trends in Wedding Cinematography
categories: Meet Our Friends, reception ideas, Trends, videography

Capturing your wedding or love story not only with pictures but with movement and sound is something you don’t want to miss out on and Elite Circle cinematographer Serendipity Cinematography is among the best you will ever find. They continue to innovate in the competitive field of cinematography and really go above and beyond for their clients.

Two trends that are really catching on with Arizona weddings are the Love Story and the Same Day Edit. The Love Story is where Serendipity interviews the couple before their wedding and edits together the stories of how they met, fell in love, and got engaged. This is a great film for couples to show at their wedding reception to give their guests the back story as to how they met and what led them down the aisle.

Here’s a sample of a Love Story from Serendipity Cinematography- Kaylee and David have some GREAT stories to tell!

The second trend is the Same Day Edit- a truly amazing option for couples. Taryn of Serendipity Cinematography explains: The Same Day Edit is where we shoot and edit a highlight film to be aired AT the event!! This is for the couple who wants the total WOW factor at their reception. It replaces the lame Photo Montage and is a source of entertainment at your event. A lot of people haven’t seen this done before so guests really enjoy it.
