Often enough, we get clients who are on the fence about hiring a wedding videographer because of reasons such as budget costs, do they really NEED a video, or is it worth hiring a wedding videographer? We’re here to give 5 reasons why it’s definitely worth it to hire a wedding videographer.

1. The Audio (vows, music, etc.)

I’m sure you’ll have a bunch of family members recording the whole ceremony on their phones which is another way of documenting your wedding day, but when you hear crisp audio that professional videographers in Auckland capture, it makes gives you a different feeling. Watching your wedding ceremony and hearing your vows clearly on video makes you feel like you’re reliving that moment again. You can also relive the speeches during the reception from your best man and maid/matron of honor!

2. Motion tells a different story

A photographer should be on every bride and groom’s must-haves but one of the things that photos can’t capture as well as video is movement. Photos will capture the spontaneous moment throughout the day but you can rewatch a scene during your day happen all over again. One of our favorite moments to capture is the first look. Seeing the motion of the grooms turn around and then the expressions are priceless. There are so many other moments throughout the day when motion tells such a beautiful story such as the first kiss, the first dance, etc.

3. The unseen moments

 When it’s your wedding day, there are so many other things that can take your attention away from the rest of your wedding day but no need to worry! Wedding videography in Auckland are an extra set of eyes for you.
When you are focused on your significant other during the wedding ceremony, there will be someone capture reactions from the crowd and other little details that you may have missed. If you’re the bride, you can see the anticipation on the grooms’ side during getting ready and right before the first look happens. The little moments that you don’t see will make your wedding experience so much more amazing.

4. Share share share

Sometimes grandma, family members from across the world, or other friends and family who weren’t able to make it to your wedding day and fully experience the beautiful ceremony. That is where video comes in! We are in the day and age where we can share videos with anyone and everyone! Grandma can watch the full wedding ceremony with officiants’ speech and wedding vows like she was there in the crowd.

5. A drop in the financial bucket

Most people are worried about the cost of hiring a wedding videography service while budgeting for their wedding, which is totally understandable. The cost can be scary when you look at it through a microscope but when you think about what will be getting from it for the rest of your life and how much money you’ll be making for the rest of your life, it becomes a drop in your financial bucket. You will be able to have a memory of one of the most special days in your life FOREVER! And not only is it a memory for yourself but a memory that can be passed down to your children and your children’s children.

We understand that hiring a wedding videographer can be expensive and it isn’t an absolute necessity, but what you get from what can be documented is priceless. Wedding videography is not better or worst than wedding photography, it just tells a different type of story. With any vendor, hire the wedding videographer that best fits your needs and personality because that will make your wedding day go so much smoother.


If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video is worth a million.

You know that you want photographs of your wedding, and you’ll also want to remember the special day using videography. While a perfectly timed picture can capture the emotion, there is nothing that compares to the combination of wedding photography and videography to preserve lasting memories of your wedding day.

When you decide that you’d like to have videography done for your wedding day, we’ll work with you to discuss which parts of the wedding you’d like to have recorded. Some people think that videography is only for the formal ceremony, but it can actually be quite lovely to have a video of other parts of the day as well. It’s fun to be able to look back on videos of you and your friends getting ready for the ceremony, as well as seeing your friends and family having the time of their lives partying it up at the reception.

Videography also allows you to get glimpses into the day that you wouldn’t see otherwise. It’s priceless to see the excitement and nervousness on your spouse’s face moments before you walk down the aisle.
