This post has seriously been sitting in my drafts folder for 3 years! So for today’s Throw Back Thursday I’m finally going to share it!
One question that I often get asked is whether or not couples should hire a videographer for their wedding day. I’m sure that I’m stating the obvious when I say that I’m more of a picture person. I don’t take home videos and although my camera does have the capability to record video, I have no idea how to use it. My personal camera has video too and I tried to use it the other day and apparently I haven’t been able to figure that out yet either. I have a flip that I know I can always rely on (when the battery isn’t dead), but what to do with them after they’re taken. No idea.
But we did hire a professional videographer for our wedding and I’m so happy that we did! We watch our wedding video on our anniversary every year. Every time we watch it we notice something that we missed before which usually has us in fits of laughter. What I love the most about watching our wedding video is seeing those that are no longer with us. Our best friend, grandparents and Scott’s parents are full of life, sharing moments with us which would only be faded memories without our video.
We get to see one of our best friends who passed at way too young of an age donate his tie to secure Scott’s hands for the garter removal. We get to watch my grandma on the dance floor, and we get always remember these fine words of advice from Scott’s dad and it makes me laugh every time we watch it.
