I may be a little biased but hiring a videographer for your wedding is definitely a must. Zola’s wedding planning survey found that one-third of recently married couples actually wish they spent more money on this one thing: a videographer. Add to that 25 percent of couples that did hire a videographer still wished they spent more money on the service.

“The only regret I have about our wedding is not having a videographer. The day goes by so quickly—you really miss so much of it. I look back now and wish I would have spent the money for it.” —Vikki2pay
“While we’re very pleased with our photographer, I’m now starting to have second thoughts about not having a videographer. I guess there’s nothing like having a video to capture the details, people’s faces/expressions, our vows—things that I might miss during the day as a busy bride and that don’t necessarily get captured in even the best quality photos.” —caramels03
“I regret not having one. I thought that I’d never watch it and I’d have my pictures, but there’s a lot of your wedding that, as the bride, you don’t get to see. For example, I wish I could see what was going on inside my ceremony tent before I got there. I wish I could see my bridesmaids walk in. The whole thing went by so fast—I’d kill to have more memories of it.” —starrbuk13
Photographers are awesome! You should always hire a photographer to capture those beautiful candid moments. But the video should not be overlooked nor should you cut corners when selecting a videographer. They say “A picture is worth a thousand words” well imagine what hearing those words would be worth.
