Videography and photography: Capturing the magic of your special day

Hey lovelies! It's me, your favorite wedding videographer. Ever since I was a little girl, I dreamed of filming weddings. There's something so magical about capturing the love, joy, and emotions of such a special day. Now, with a fantastic team by my side, I get to make people’s dreams come true. Today, let’s chat about the wonderful world of videography and photography, and why both are so important for your wedding day.

Why both matter

First things first, let’s talk about why you need both a videographer and a photographer. Photos freeze moments in time. They capture the little details – the lace on the bride’s dress, the tears in the groom’s eyes, the laughter of friends and family. On the other hand, videos bring those moments to life. You get to relive the vows, hear the speeches, and dance along with the couple. Together, they create a comprehensive, beautiful narrative of your day.

The magic of videography

Videography is like creating a mini-movie of your wedding. Inspired by romantic movies, I love to weave a story that captures not just the events, but the emotions and atmosphere. Think about it: the sound of your laughter, the cheers during the toasts, the song for your first dance – these are moments that video can preserve in a way photos simply can’t.
A great tip for couples is to choose a videographer who understands your style and vision. Do you love the cinematic feel with dramatic shots and music? Or are you more into a documentary style, capturing candid moments as they happen? Discussing these preferences can ensure your wedding video feels authentic to you.

The art of photography

Photography, on the other hand, captures the timeless stills. It's the elegant portrait of you and your partner, the candid shot of your best friend wiping a tear, the artistic capture of your rings resting on the bouquet. A talented photographer knows how to balance posed photos with candid ones, creating a collection of images that tell the story of your day.
When choosing a photographer, look for someone whose portfolio resonates with you. If their past work makes you feel something – joy, love, nostalgia – they’re likely a good fit. And don’t forget to discuss any specific shots you want. Whether it’s a family heirloom you’re wearing or a special moment you’ve planned, let them know so they can capture it perfectly.

Working together seamlessly

One thing I always stress is the importance of the videographer and photographer working seamlessly together. At Filmarry, my team and I coordinate closely with photographers to ensure we’re not stepping on each other’s toes and that we’re both getting the best shots. Communication is key here. We often plan our moves like a well-rehearsed dance, ensuring every beautiful moment is captured from both lenses.

Tips and tricks for couples

For you lovely couples out there, here are a few tips to make the most of your videography and photography:
  1. Be yourselves: The best moments are the genuine ones. Laugh, cry, dance, and let your emotions show. It’s your day, so enjoy every moment. Don’t worry about being perfect; the beauty lies in the authenticity of your emotions. When you look back at your wedding photos and videos, you’ll want to remember how you truly felt, not how you posed. So, let loose, be playful, and let your personalities shine through. Those unplanned, spontaneous moments often turn out to be the most cherished memories.
  2. Plan your timeline: Make sure there’s enough time in your schedule for all the shots you want. Talk to your videographer and photographer about the timeline to ensure nothing is rushed. Consider the different parts of your day – from getting ready to the ceremony, and from the reception to the send-off. Allocate specific times for each segment, allowing for flexibility in case things run behind. A well-planned timeline ensures that you’re relaxed and enjoying the moment, and it gives your team the time they need to capture everything beautifully.
  3. Golden hour magic: If possible, plan for some photos and video during the golden hour – just after sunrise or before sunset. The light is magical and creates stunning images and footage. The soft, warm light during this time adds a romantic and ethereal quality to your photos and videos. It’s perfect for capturing intimate moments and creating a dreamy, cinematic feel. Talk to your videographer and photographer about incorporating this into your schedule, even if it means stepping out of your reception for a few minutes.
  4. Trust your team: You chose your videographer and photographer for a reason. Trust their vision and expertise. Sometimes, the best shots come from spontaneous moments that weren’t planned. Professionals have an eye for capturing those candid, heartfelt interactions that might otherwise go unnoticed. Let them guide you, suggest poses, or ask for specific shots. Remember, they’re there to make you look and feel your best. Their experience allows them to anticipate moments and capture them in the most flattering light.
  5. Communication is key: Keep the lines of communication open. Share your ideas, inspirations, and concerns. A good videographer and photographer will listen and adapt to your needs. Before the wedding, discuss any must-have shots, preferred styles, and any specific requests you have. If there are certain family dynamics or special moments you want captured, let them know. During the day, don’t hesitate to communicate any changes or new ideas that come up. The more they understand your vision, the better they can tailor their approach to meet your expectations.
