I’ve seen so many cheesy wedding videos with cheap graphics and awful transitions that I’ve had to be clear with people that I’m not a wedding videographer. Recently, however, I’ve been blown away by the incredibly high quality that wedding videos have taken. Before, when I heard talk of wedding video I think of the worst possible quality. But now, there’s almost been a 180-degree shift. Okay, yeah, I’ll say it: wedding video is actually cool. Here’s 3 reasons why:
- The biggest reason for higher production value is the invention of digital still cameras (DSLR’s) that can shoot video, which allow a highly skilled photographer to now double as a highly skilled cinematographer.
- The second reason why I believe that producing wedding video is no longer career suicide for a video producer: YouTube has given us a license to be as funky and creative as we like. With the popularity of dancing bride-and-groom videos, it’s clear that fun is in.
- Even if you’re not an event videographer, you can still be part of a couple’s wedding festivities with carefully crafted videos that can play before during the reception or to announce the wedding to family and friends.
