Should We Book a Wedding Cinematographer?
Before I even get started on the details, the answer to this question is a BIG yes! Cinematography and Photography work hand in hand, they are so similar yet capture completely different elements of your wedding day, and when working closely together are the ultimate recipe for wedding perfection.
When you look back on your wedding day you want to remember and relive every tiny detail. It may be the way the wind swept your hair, how loud you were laughing or the way he looked at you when you first walked down the aisle. By having a team of creatives that know how to work together to capture all of the above (and more) you’ll be set to ignite those emotions every day for the rest of your life!
Imagine a time when you sit back together and reminisce on the beginning of your marriage, when your heels are swapped for slippers and your hair from blonde to ash. Imagine hearing the vows you had promised one another in real time, in real words, in a voice that may now be broken or frail. You will hear the sounds of loud cheers, laughter from a loved one and relive words that were spoken ever so beautifully from family and friends about your love.
You may be thinking ‘why both?’, it’s simple. Wedding photography is about capturing a moment in time, an essence of your love story and a piece of art made up of all the elements of your love. Photography is about reliving a notion that is still, it’s one split second that you’ll have forever, imbedded your hands and heart. Wedding Cinematography is the essence of your love story as a whole, a progression of your wedding day with elements that are brought to life through film, style and sound. It’s a journey like no other, it’s YOUR journey. A whole production of what your love stands for and the day in which you became one.
Cinematography can sometimes be seen as a luxury, a ‘maybe if there is room in the budget’. Let’s be real. Not many people will remember the colour of your linen washed table cloths or the million dollar extras that are put before budgets of photography and cinematography, but this is YOUR day, and you’ll want to remember in every way shape and form for the rest of your life. This day is about your love, and THAT is exactly what a creative team of cinematographers and photographers will capture.
