II. The Early Days of Wedding Videography

Since its inception in the 1970s, wedding videography has undergone impressive developments. The period was marked by scarcity where only a select few professionals had access to video cameras as they were seen as opulent commodities at the time. Notably bulky and costly equipment resulted in videos that reflected modesty and plainness in approach. However, despite these limitations, there was an unmasked charm associated with capturing couples’ extraordinary occasions on reel.

III. The Shift to Documentary Style Videography

As technology advanced, so did wedding videography. The documentary style started gaining popularity, focusing on capturing the wedding day as it unfolded naturally. This style was less about staged moments and more about capturing the raw, candid emotions of the day.

IV. The Rise of Cinematic Wedding Videography

Then came the cinematic revolution. As a videographer specializing in cinematic wedding videos, I can tell you that this style changed the game. Cinematic wedding videography is all about creating a film-like experience, complete with dramatic angles, slow-motion shots, and carefully curated music. It’s about telling a story – your love story.

V. The Advent of Storytelling Videography

Storytelling videography is a relatively new style that has quickly gained popularity. This style uses voiceovers, interviews, and carefully selected footage to tell the couple’s love story. It’s a more personal and intimate approach to wedding videography, and it’s a style that I’ve seen many couples fall in love with.
