Planning your wedding, 5 reasons to hire a videographer

With so much happening on your wedding day, it’s inevitable that many of the details may be a blur. Don’t worry, there is a very simple solution for making sure all the memories remain after the gifts have been opened and the flowers long wilted away. Having your wedding filmed is a simple and guaranteed way to ensure the many months or even years of planning won’t be missed!

A recent survey  conducted by The Wedding and Event Videographers Association found that -98% of newlywed couples recommended to future brides that they SHOULD have wedding videography. 63% of brides that did not consider or have wedding videography, would recommend to future brides to do so.


Bigler Productions has created the following 5 reasons that every bride should hire a wedding videographer.

1. Something to Have for Years to Come.

Imagine if you could  watch your great great grandmother’s wedding, how cool would that be.  With modern technology your wedding can be viewed for generations to come.  It’s a great way to reconnect with the moment.

2. Be in Multiple Places at Once

Picture the bride getting ready.  How could she possibly see all of the other things going on around her? Her groom with his groomsmen before the ceremony or the many people waiting for her to make her big entrance.  Only with the help of film can this be made possible.  Imagine the excitement of sitting down together as a couple and seeing the parts you missed.  Just one more thing to look forward to!

3. Share it With Friends

With the technology in today’s world, you have the ability to share your wedding video with family and friends through things such as Facebook, blogs and emails.  Some companies will even go so far as to give you a digital copy to easily upload your video to these social networks.

4. Professional Expertise

Professional videographers/cinematographers have been trained to get the results you are looking for. They have invested in high quality and expensive equipment to give you only the best outcome.  Most professionals have filmed 100+ weddings so they know exactly where to be at the right time.   Editors can piece together the footage with just the right music and special effects to accommodate anything you wish to have.

5. Star in Your Own Movie!

Video has changed drastically in the past few years.  Watching samples from the top cinematographers in the area will show you that modern wedding films are closer to hollywood then they have ever been!  With the right cinematographer/videographer you have to opportunity to truly star in your own film.

Ok, so we established that having a videographer is the thing to do, but there is a big difference between Uncle Bob’s handy cam and a Cinematographer.  Look for our next article coming soon:
