Though a wedding video is worth a billion words it shouldn’t cost a billion dollars! As you roll up your sleeves and look at the mounting costs it becomes apparent that asking questions and understanding what every vendor offers is key to getting what you want and for the best price. When deciding on whether to get a wedding video or not you should not say to yourself ” I have a photographer so I’m covered or I won’t miss a video. Unlike photographs, videos give you the voices, the noises, the sounds, the action of one of the most memorable days of your life and keeps it saved forever. But if you haven’t quite made up your mind, here are some of the other reasons you need to really consider having a wedding video.
“Ivan was able to capture our whole ceremony so everyone that couldn’t attend can see! We love the video and so glad that we can play it anytime we want to relive our wedding experience. Thank you again! ” – Chloe D
Here’s the most popular remark we hear about AFTER the wedding video was received ” I can’t believe you got that? I was talking to guests in the other room! I’m so happy !!” For all those unforeseeable reasons and moments is why you want the video. Think of having a photographer and a videographer at your wedding like Travelers Insurance, You’re pretty sure nothings going to go wrong on your flight then all the sudden there’s a delay or something equally as inconvenient and THEN you wished you’d spend the extra dollars for the flight insurance…. for that extra amount you won’t regret not having Nana’s or Grandpa’s words on camera or doing the hustle on the dance floor long after the wedding. While you may not have been there, the videographer probably could have been, and could have captured all the cuteness for you and your family to all enjoy and relive for years to come.
“As an event planner, working with vendors is second nature and some stand out more than others. Ivan Alzuro is in a lane of his own as his attention to detail and ability to capture special moments just allows his clients to feel like they were omnipresent at their own event.” –Angel W
Furthermore, a survey from 2006 showed that 98% of brides reconsidered and wanted their wedding videotaped. Also added, that prior to the wedding 50% of the brides considered wedding videographer a must, later, that number soared to 75%. Evidently, hindsight is 20/20!
“Being an event planner when my granddaughter was getting married I knew there was only one videographer I would use.
I have viewed over 50 weddings that he has produced.” – Patricia Hauler
You most likely have already secured your photographer, good move. But think about it, sharing your wedding with family and friends and you have wedding album sitting on your coffee table… gonna difficult sharing the photos… At Alzuro Video Productions our highlights and movies are digitally sent to you making easy to share directly with just your phone or post on social media and share the link. Most times all these facets are not considered. It’s natural though, think about it, you’re inundated with so many other decisions with other vendors you r mind just gets taxed!
“Every time he had an idea he always was really excited when sharing but was patient and open to listening to what we wanted.” – Laura
Consider this. You have photos of the wedding of grandma dancing… it’s just one frame, not the whole song. How kick a** would it be to see her dance to that 70’s song?! Or your girlfriends from college dancing and singing along with the opening lyrics of Baby Got Back… it happens, it’s a thing. Let’s just talk about the elephant in the room… Nana passes away… wouldn’t it be beautiful just having her on camera wishing you a wonderful married life or seeing your uncle who lives on the other side of the country that you rarely hear from sing along with a Journey song?? That’s where photos fall short. Your wedding video brings back to life and reminds you of the best moments and those embarrassing times that make you laugh till you start coughing!! When your dad laughed at something someone said… you know, that laugh you love so much. The laugh that reminds you of family…. Cost of dress $3000. Flowers for the reception $576. Cost of your parents telling you at the end of the video that they love you and how they feel about the two of you, as they tear up… priceless.
You’re probably not thinking about it right now, I mean, why would you… but long after the newlywed… you’re kids are in high school, they’re thinking about their first love… they will ask you about you and dad. ” How did you meet?” What was it like on your wedding day?… press play on the link and let them watch….”Gaw mom you look so young!!” and then that’s your cue to leave them alone lol.
“We needed a videographer at the last minute, and they moved mountains to be there for us. ” –Meagan A.
“Ivan was so easy and fun to work with! He even softened the blow of another vendor mess up (our DJ played the wrong music as I walked down the aisle) ” –Alyssa
Yes!!! whatta beautiful way to tell your man you love him very much! Sitting on the couch… maybe with a glass of wine and both of you relive the movie 2 years later or every anniversary… there’s that special moment when you both hold hands watching it and reminding each other of those feelings you had and they come alive again!! Thank us later ; ) As the years go by you’ll watch the video ans see thongs you didn’t catch the first or 4th time you may have already forgotten. Luckily, The video will never lose it’s memory, retell it differently… long after the kids have graduated and starting their own families.
“He kept things light and whimsical, and told an incredible story-our story through the lens. ” –Joshua K
