I’ve had quite a few brides asking me if I have any videographers that I recommend latey. Yes, I think photography is an absolute must-have on your wedding day. That’s why I do what I do. But I do also recommend having a videographer as well – especially if your budget allows it. While photography freezes that special moment in time, videography has the ability to cinematize your wedding day with the right music paired with fluid motion—an entirely different yet equally important experience than photography.
Over the past few years, I’ve been lucky enough to have been in the company of some truly talented vendors. I always love following up to see what the wedding day looks like captured through their lens. And over time, after viewing many wedding videos, I’ve sort of developed a “favorites” list of videographers who I can’t wait to see what they do next (and ones that I especially enjoy working with). I want to share that list here for any brides looking for a videographer. Hope this helps!
I met Charlie last September second-shooting Jesse + Ben’s Wedding. He is a genuinely nice person, that was so, so easy to work along aside with the entire day. The video from that day is spectacular, and you can see it here. But, I just had to share this one because I am absolutely, utterly, insanely obsessed with the opening scene. Ladies, it’s one of those things that you wish you would have thought of doing years ago. The groom’s reaction is priceless. I even showed this video to my boyfriend, Danny, and he literally said outloud, “Wow.”
I worked with Daniel Sather last year while I was second-shooting Jenny + Nate’s Wedding. Both shooters were friendly, excited about capturing the day together, and we helped each other create some beautiful images/video for the client. Anyway, here is one of my favorite videos from Leap.
I’ve known Joe since high school, but we just recently connected since we’re both in the wedding industry. Brides, if you’re looking for a fun, hard-working, and talented videographer, Joe’s your guy. Last month I had a blast shooting Jackie + Mark’s Wedding with Joe. We shared stories, shots, and even lenses, and I’m thrilled with what he did with the wedding video.
Hopefully this post gives you all a better idea of the quality of work a videographer can bring to your wedding day. I’d love to hear who your favorite wedding videographers are… leave them in a comment! Or feel free to shoot over any questions J Happy wedding planning!
