Should I hire a wedding photographer (who also does video) instead of hiring a wedding videographer?

I am seeing more and more local photographers including a “wedding highlights to music video” in the packages they offer.  You may be thinking, I can save money by going with this option and not have to hire a professional wedding videographer.  The highlight video is a very popular and is something that can be easily posted on facebook.com and other social media outlets.  {At the end of this article checkout a recent highlight video we did for one of our clients.}

What you don’t get with wedding photographers is they do not video the entire ceremony.  They can’t, they are too busy taking photographs.  They also do not place microphones on the readers, pastor, groom and singers, therefore you do not get good audio from the ceremony.  The reception coverage also is lacking as well.  If you notice the highlights video from wedding photographers, most of the video clips come from pre ceremony (getting ready) and also the times between the ceremony and reception when they are taking photos at another location.  And a lot of the video clips are choreographed by the wedding photographer.   There is nothing wrong with these highlight videos, in fact some of them are quite good.

BUT, if you want really want to relive your wedding day, hire a professional wedding videographer!  Remember – a 4 to 8 minute highlight video cannot capture your entire wedding day.  We offer complete ceremony and reception coverage in every package.

Wedding Videography is our Specialty!

Our last wedding of 2017 was one of the best we have ever done.  Below is the highlight clip that the bride posted on her facebook page.  She received over 100 views in the first 12 hours of posting along with all complimentary comment posts.  Her wedding package included rehearsal footage at the church and rehearsal dinner, a love story video (included interviews with bride and groom and growing up photos, all put to music), entire wedding ceremony and all the main events at the reception.  Almost 4 hours of wedding day coverage in high definition on 2 dvd’s.

Be sure and watch in HD.

Wedding season has concluded for the 2017 year and 2017 was a very good year for KC Video.


Cape Central Winter sports is in full swing and I am pleased to announce that KC Video has again been contracted to provide the video for the Cape Central High School All Sports Booster Club banquet for 2018.  This is a year long project that culminates at the booster clubs awards banquet in May.  This sports highlights video incorporates video, graphics, music and still images along with narration by local on air  k103 personality, Mike Renick.


I realize everyone spends more than they want to on a wedding.  Let me give you one piece of advice.  Weddings are expensive, so, please make sure all the moments are captured on video.  Have your wedding video done by a professional.  You will not regret it.   I feel the wedding video is more important than the wedding photos.  Every bride I speak to years after their wedding day, tell me they cherish their wedding video.

Here is a sampling from a wedding I had the privilege of  videoing.  What a beautiful couple and Christmas wedding.   You may recognize the bride, she is frequently seen in a commercial, shown on KFVS TV Channel12, advertising  St Francis hospital in Cape.   Be sure and click on settings and watch this in 720 HD quality!

Awesome email from a recent client…

 

Hi! Last night we viewed the video of our daughter’s wedding from 11/xx/15. AWESOME!! You did a great job! I was amazed by the number of angles that the videos were taken from and the microphones that must have been placed in various areas! I was able to hear them say their vows on the video, something I wasn’t able to hear in church! And I was surprised that you had taken video at the gathering at the pub between the ceremony and reception. Either you were VERY unobtrusive or I was not observant, because I don’t recall seeing you there! And as the mother of the bride, I will admit the day is a bit of a blur ( and I only had one glass of wine :-)), so having the video to enable me to see what transpired during the day is a blessing. Thank you so much for great documentation of such a special day!

J
