Things To Look For In A Cairns Wedding Videographer

You are a bride to be. You have a wedding soon. You have vendors to book, invitations to send, and the cakes to taste. You have a lot to do, but when you're finished you have a deep breath and a stiff drink waiting for you. We know that planning your wedding ultra stress and the less you have to worry about, the closer you are to that drink. So we thought we would weigh in on what we know and try to alleviate some helpful hints leading up to your big day.

OK, we know you need your wedding flowers – the florist, we can not help there. You may book a band – we can recommend the MC Hammer? (You may not have to listen to us). You will almost certainly hire a photographer, in this case, we can make some great recommendations. But what about hiring someone to capture your day through sight AND sound? Someone who will turn your day into the next Sundance Official Selection? How about booking a videographer?

The first and most important thing when choosing a videographer is to find out whether they fit your style. There are two main styles of shooting and editing wedding videos: documentaries and cinematic. In short, the documentary is a "hit record" mentality and cinematic is "artistic" mentality.

More literally, from the standpoint of the documentary, wedding videos might end up being a few hours long "as it happens." With cinematic style, your wedding video might be twenty minutes in length and features a more exciting pace, more stylized shots, and a more artful pairing of those shots with the music. The style is no right or wrong they are just different. 

Even after you choose sides, you still need to dig into the company's body of work. Let's say you choose to edit the cinematic. (We hope you do!) Each individual company will have their own style in which they tend to shoot and edit. So make sure you choose one that fits your style and needs.

Wedding Photography and Videography in Cairns – A Must For Today’s Weddings

In many cultures around the world, the wedding day, perhaps, the second biggest day of the life of people, second only to the day of birth. Of course, this view may differ slightly depending on who we ask: the bride or groom. During these days, people are looking to have their most special moment documented for ages.

For many people, this documentation, unfortunately, ended up in the box, collecting dust, or, God forbid, wasted away by time. With the technology available to us today, we can benefit from the most brilliant discoveries and record our most precious opportunities by professional wedding photographers & videographers in Cairns. It is a storyteller, hired to tell our story in pictures and movies (or disk), captures all the magic and beauty of the day.

In the old days, the wedding will be remembered by elaborate painting. In fact, it would not be a wedding that was painted. It was the still-picture that came afterwards. The artist would have the newlyweds pose, then they would be put to canvas. After that, we had early photography. Things didn't change much, though. The couple would pose, the photographer would snap the picture.

It was not long before someone thought that the photo becomes the norm and, dare say it, boring. In comes the video camera. Now, not only the photos are taken to document the special day, but the video, too. In this way, not only the actions are documented, but all that is said, too. Not only do we see still images that tell our story, but now, we are able to see the whole story unfold right in front of our eyes, just the way we would see if we were invited to the wedding.
