Photo & Video Booths / Magic Mirrors

Q. We're not sure if our budget can stretch to hiring a videographer. Will we regret it if we don't have one? What do they capture that photographs can't?

A. Ami and Ben Phillips says: Ami says: The answer to this is simple - yes, you'll regret it! Wedding videography has evolved a lot over the years and now it's able to capture and tell the story of the day through creative shooting, editing and by adding music. Videographers create videos of the highlights that you'll enjoy watching again and again for years to come.

A video has a way of capturing moments and emotions that may otherwise be missed. It offers the opportunity to look back at footage of loved ones and if you have children one day, it'll be something meaningful to show them. If you're going to spend lots of money on a wedding then why would you not want to be able to look back and relive the day? From our experience, the time passes so quickly on the day itself and there'll be plenty that happens that you'll miss so take the opportunity to share in those moments and relive the emotion after the day has finished.

We often hear couples say that they don't think they can afford a videographer because they hadn't budgeted for one. They are often amazed at how affordable our Ultimate Wedding Package is and how easy it is to book everything with us. We wanted every couple to be able to afford it and to make it as inclusive as possible. We knew we could combine our talents to provide a service that includes everything at an affordable price to help save couples time and money. To find out what it includes, visit our website.
