Should You Have A Wedding Videographer

We think yes. Yep. Yup. Absolutely. Most definitely. Yes. There are tonnes of perks to having a wedding videographer. Photos are great and we love ’em. But there’s something about motion. Capturing the way you moved, the way you laughed, how your dress floated about the venue as the sun shone through the window, the words of the speeches and the exchanging of vows. Memories to last a life time. And it’s not really about whether you think you’ll watch it every month or even every anniversary. It’s having the choice to watch it.

Should I Have a Wedding Videographer

One of Becky’s biggest regrets is not having film of her day. She talks through the reasons why they decided not to have one and hopefully it will sway you to make sure you do have one.
