Instances In Time

Jul 01, 2020

There are numerous instances on a wedding day that are meaningful to the newlyweds, and to be perfectly honest, it will be impossible to document every single one of these moments. What one can hope for is for one’s appointed cinematographer to capture as many of these as possible, using his or her experience and eye for detail as well as knack for tuning into emotional exchanges. When this is attained, you can be sure of a wedding film that will speak to you as a couple and one that will tug at the emotional heartstrings.

Some suggestions :

  • Choose a vendor who is adept at a wide range of weddings, as this showcases their curious mind and willingness to learn about other cultures and traditions.
  • Although contractual terms protect both parties, be sure to be flexible when the situation calls for it so that everyone involved can work well together and with a common mindset, that is to create a wedding film that will be cherished in time to come.
