Do you want to have a photographer, a videographer, or both at your wedding? This can be a tough choice for many couples. These media specialists are not cheap, and sometimes the couple is forced to choose just one.
First, consider checking out companies that offer a package plan with both professionals in one package. Some companies even offer packages for photos, videos, and a DJ. Beware though, often times these are not the mind blowing photos and videos you might get from hiring these people separately.
Photos will last a lifetime. With proper care and storage, your wedding photographs can last indefinitely. Videos on the other hand, may wear over time, and it is possible that they could become obsolete in years to come, as technology changes. Videos, on the other hand, can sometimes tell a story in a way that photographs simply cannot. Weigh the options carefully. Having both will allow you to have a well-rounded full story of your wedding day. If you choose to hire a photographer, and not a videographer, consider having a family member or friend on hand with a good quality camcorder. It is a little easier to shoot a movie than to take timeless photographs, if all you want is documentation of what happened on your wedding day.
There are many things to be taken into consideration when making this difficult decision. Make sure you weigh your options carefully. You should not have to have any regrets about your wedding day.
