Yes, we do wedding videography in NJ, so you’re probably thinking that it’s no surprise our team thinks hiring more than one of them is a good idea, but the truth is that it’s not just about having a back-up.
Enlisting the help of more than one shooter will make a huge difference in the love story your video tells. Trust us, it’ll be a whole lot richer. Read on to learn why.
1. Because candid moments are key.
More and more newlyweds are coming around to the fact that capturing plenty of candid moments is key to ending up with the kind of wedding video they’ve been dreaming of, but not all of them realize how important multiple shooters are to doing that.
It’s not that one videographer isn’t capable of capturing some candid moments. Of course they are, but if that person’s the only one in attendance on your big day, then he/she will also be capturing all the major moments, details, etc., too.
There will so much else on the sole videographer’s plate, which is why our NJ wedding videographers stress the fact that, if you want plenty of candid moments, then you’ll probably need to seriously consider bring more than one shooter to the party.
2. Because different angles pack different punches.
You may be surprised to learn just how much different the impact of a shot can be depending on the specific distance and angle, which is another reason our videography team thinks multiple shooters are so critical to getting an awesome wedding video.
For example, a really wide shot can showcase more of the surroundings, so if the venue in which you’re getting married has some stunning spaces, then you’ll want plenty of shots highlighting them.
But at the same time, you’ll also always want plenty of close-ups capturing the genuine emotion on your, your partner’s, and your guests’ faces. And we haven’t even mentioned moving shots, but the point is that having more than one videographer will allow you to tell your story in a variety of ways.
3. Because more eyes = more minds.
Another one of the biggest reasons that having multiple videographers on hand on your big day is so valuable is that it means there will be multiple artistic, creative minds there at work.
That is, if you find the right people for the job of course, but that’s a different story. The bottom line is that good videographers aren’t just detail documenters; they’re storytellers.
That means that they know how to find the angles and moments that speak to who you are and capture the authentic spirit of your celebration. So, having more minds doing all that will only help to ensure that you end up with a richer story.
Our NJ wedding videographers know full well the value of a team.
Let’s be honest. Not even the most experienced and talented wedding videographer can be everywhere at once, so there are some obvious benefits to having multiple shooters.
But if you were on the fence, then we hope these reasons help show you the light. And again, we’re not just saying that because we’re in the wedding business. We’re saying it because we’re in the storytelling business.
