There are only four more months till my wedding, and while busy-bee planning, I heard an interesting stat: Videography is usually the first thing to go when the budget gets tight. I admit, I thought about forgoing it, too. But after speaking with a few recently married friends and family members, those who hired a videographer had no regrets. Those that hadn’t? Well, they wished they did.
So, deciding to make cuts elsewhere to stay within budget, I pursued a videographer. First, I asked our photographers for recommendations. Then, I spent an hour on the phone with Jeffrey Stoner, a videographer in Orlando, Florida. We chatted about his method and his experience while I perused samples of his work online. Based on his answers and the great footage, I knew he would be a perfect fit.
In the end, I feel it'll be worth the investment. He'll be able to capture all of the speeches at the rehearsal dinner and reception -- something a picture just can't do justice.
