Should I hire a videographer?


When you’re planning your wedding and putting together your event day team, it can seem a bit overwhelming when you look at all of the pieces that go into it. Of course, there are some vendors that are required a wedding – a venue, a photographer and a caterer, for example. The challenge can be deciding what else is a necessity. For many, a floral designer, a DJ and a planner fall under that realm, as does a videographer.

Videography seems like an add-on for many, whereas others see it as a must-have. When making the decision of whether or not to hire a videographer, it’s important to ask yourself certain questions.

Does it fit into your budget?
Videography is a unique service that is designed to capture your wedding in a way that you can hold onto forever. However, it does come with a price so be sure that it fits into your budget before you make the plunge.

Are you happy with wedding photos?
For some, a wedding photo album is all they need to capture their special celebration. If that’s the case, then a videographer may not be necessary.

Are there any special moments you want to capture?
If you are planning for a surprise guest appearance, a choreographed dance or you simply want to hold onto your vows for years to come, then you would do well to have a videographer on board to capture all of those keepsake moments.

Can you imagine your day without a videographer?
One of the biggest regrets we hear from brides is that they didn’t have a videographer because they’d like to look back at all the little parts of their wedding. The big day itself will be a whirlwind of activity, so oftentimes brides and grooms get caught up in what they’re doing and aren’t always noticing all of the other things happening around the event. If you think you’ll regret not being able to look back at your special day, then a videographer is certainly a must.

At the end of the day, the choice to have your wedding recorded is up to you and the priorities you’ve set for your wedding.
