Understanding the Value of Videography
by Nenad Stjepanovic
In years to come, the value of your video will become priceless. The best way to understand the cost of videography is to compare it to photography. A photographer may spend 8-10 hours on your wedding day in actual photography. A good videographer will spend as many hours documenting your day in video. Then, in addition to that, he will spend perhaps 30 or more hours in the editing process - setting your video to music, editing in and cutting out scenes to make it all flow smoothly. Videography, hour-per-hour, is generally less expensive than photography. In short, photography is limited to what it offers you. It is basically a snapshot of a moment in time that does not give you the sounds and life that video offers. On the other hand, videography gives you more than just moments in time. It basically gives you a chance to revisit your wedding day from the standpoint of a guest. In fact, you will be able to feel the same emotions again when you hear your laughter or see your tears of joy. So, if you could pick one, which would you rather choose? Photography or videography? Fortunately you do not have to choose one to the exclusion of the other. Choosing both will ensure that you fully capture all the memories of your big day.
