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!

Photo & Video Fusion from Verdi Photography
categories: Meet Our Friends, photography, Trends, videography

Since just about every couple who plans their wedding does so with the intention of making it unique, we are always on the lookout for the latest and greatest ideas. Luckily, we work with the Elite Circle, vendors who are cutting edge professionals, so of course whenever one of our Elite Circle members tells us about something they offer that’s interesting and fun, we jump on the chance to share with you. Today we introduce you to Photo & Video Fusion from Photography by Verdi.

Photo & Video Fusion is exactly what it sounds like- you get photography and videography fused together into one awesome slideshow. Literally, you’ll be looking at still pictures one second and moving pictures the next. It’s the perfect blend of photo and video. If this is’t cool, I don’t know what is!

Maren and Josh met at ASU and got married at Juniper Wells Ranch in September. Here’s their video:

I  caught up with them to see what they thought of this unique option; Maren explains their thoughts:

I booked Photography by Verdi because I loved their photography and after I booked them they sent me a fusion video from a wedding they had done and I cried…..I didn’t even know the couple! I just thought that it told the most beautiful story. When you plan your wedding you dream about these little scenes that make up the day; walking down the aisle, the first look, the first dance, etc. You run them through your head dreaming of this magical day over and over hoping that it will be as perfect in real life as it is in your dreams. The video fusion that Verdi puts together captured the very essences of my dreams and the emotions I was feeling on my wedding day.

Here’s another beauty from Photography by Verdi:

We love that our Elite Circle members continue to innovate and create all for your benefit!

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.
