Why film the day when I already have a photographer?
With each couple I have worked with, they cannot believe that they almost did not hire a videographer. When I send the wedding day video to a bride, it is a very touching and emotional moment. The day goes by in a flash, so having these moments preserved in motion, rather than still photos, makes a world of difference. Here are what some brides and their families had to say after seeing their videos for the first time:
“Seriously, I can’t imagine not having the video now that we do, and to think that it wasn’t my first priority when planning. Looking back, I’d say that a videographer should be a priority for everyone. If you can’t remember what you experienced, you miss so much!!” -Caroline Rothschild, May 2012 Bride
“Caroline sent me the wedding trailer and I must have watched it 100 times. You were not only able to get wonderful shots, but I am amazed how your work was able to convey the thoughts and emotions of all of us. What a treasure for us! Caroline’s dad and I were talking about the video just this morning. He described it as “perfect.. just absolutely perfect.” -Susan Gear, Mother of the Bride
“I am balling crying in my car after looking at your trailer!!! :) Thank you so much for capturing our big day!! You are amazing at what you do! I can’t imagine not having you be a part!” -Christie Taylor, September 2012 Bride
“OH MY GOSH! I just absolutely love it. Katherine Anne you are so talented! Many many many thanks for making that for us- we will treasure it!” -Mary Louise Volk, September 2012 Bride
“Wow!! Katherine Anne—I love it!! What a great job you did. We are so grateful for your time and this wonderful gift. I feel like I am back on the wedding day and reliving the whole experience.” -Mary Lou Gibbons, Mother of the Bride
Many brides are on the fence whether or not to include a videographer because they could put that money towards something else for the wedding, but according to the past brides I have worked with, it is such an important aspect that they couldn’t have lived without!
