A videographer is not in our budget. Until recently we never thought of it as a priority. The idea of someone lurking around the ceremony with a camera in our faces just turns me off. We want or ceremony to be as intimate as possible and we’re already behind the game with an invitation list of 200. Add to the mix someone we don’t know, dressed in black wandering around with a bulky camera on their shoulder? eh not so much.
Apparently a videographer is something I should want. Who knew? Far be it for me not to comply with the bride gene, so just for fun I started researching videographers in Vermont. At first I didn’t have much luck. None of the vendors I looked up had video samples that resonated with me. I decided it wasn’t worth the expense or annoyance. Then I stumbled upon this beauty by Alice Wedding Video Productions:
Sooooo I may understand now why couples want wedding videos. I get it. I love the documentary style of this video. There’s nothing uncomfortable or forced, it doesn’t include “page turning” still shots set to sappy music. It simply captures the laughter, love and beauty of the day. *swoon*
I never thought I would be a video bride. But the more I research, the more I am finding I just might be. Over and over I’ve heard brides say the one thing they regret is not hiring a videographer. The question is, can we find a chunk of money in the budget for it? And even more importantly, how does Stephen feel about it? Once upon a time he was a film major in college, so he’s all sorts of opinionated about film.
Are you a video bride?
