The way things used to be several years ago, you had to hire a photographer and then a separate videographer. However, now that cameras and video recording devices have become much more sophisticated, a good number of photographers will actually offer both services to couples. This makes things quite a bit easier and much more cost effective when it comes to purchasing wedding photo and video packages.
Often times, if your photographer also offers video, he or she will do so at only an added cost. If you purchase a wedding photo package from then, the chances are that they will add on a video package for only a couple hundred dollars more. If you think about this in comparison to the way it used to be done in the past it is a super good deal for anyone who is getting married. When you are making your decision between photos, videos or both, you simply have to keep in mind what you really want for memories in the years to come. Today, it is also appropriate to request that your photographer put your photos on a CD for you as well as putting any of your videos on DVD so that you have a much better chance of preserving your memories perfectly.
