Weddings are a special time for friends, families, and lovers to gather to announce their love to the entire world. When doing so, it’s essential to capture these memories so that you can look back on them later in life. It’s almost unheard of to have a wedding without some photography, but why settle for photos when you can get more?

Almost every wedding has a photographer, but not every wedding includes a cinematographer. If you’re on a budget, then choosing between a wedding cinematographer and a photographer may be difficult. However, we strive to provide you with the best option for your wedding. We’ll introduce you to the differences between the two and help you decide which is best for your wedding.

Wedding Photography
Photography consists of capturing still moments throughout your wedding. Wedding photography happens at every marriage ceremony, but it doesn’t mean that you must have a professional photographer. Many of our clients enjoy taking pictures themselves or having a friend assist them. However, we find that having a professional’s guidance can make a significant impact on how the wedding photos turn out.

A professional photographer can ensure that you have proper lighting, contrast, and ensure that the photos will turn out well even if not taken in the best conditions. A photograph is worth a thousand words, but only if you can see it. To ensure that your photos come out looking picture perfect every time, make sure you work with someone well-versed in photography.

Wedding Cinematography
However, wedding cinematography is quickly becoming a more popular alternative. Instead of reminiscing about your wedding through a photo, you can enjoy a full cinematic replay of the entire event. A professional cinematographer can help direct your wedding, making it seem like a high-class film. 

If you’re looking for a method to perfectly preserve your wedding, then look no further. Cinematography relies on a professional team that not only takes care of the videography but focuses on aspects of your wedding such as the lighting, stage, and setting. All these benefits help get you the pefect wedding video.

Which to Choose?

If you’re on a tight budget, then it makes sense to cut costs for unnecessary services. For some people, that might include cinematography. However, photos and videos will last forever, while flowers and decorations will be gone shortly after the ceremony. A wedding goes by very quickly. You try to remember your vows during the ceremony, dance the night away with loved ones, and try to say thank you to all your guests. It’s over before you know it.

Every couple has friends and family they want to invite to their wedding, but sometimes it’s not possible for guests to make it. Taking off work, being overseas, or away for military service may hinder their attendance. Having a full replay of your wedding can help them feel included and allow you to share your most precious day with them.
