In many cultures around the globe, the wedding day is, perhaps, the second greatest day of a persons life, second only to ones day of birth. Of course, this outlook might be a bit different depending on who we ask: the bride or the groom. During this day, people seek to have their most special moment documented for the ages.
For many, this documentation sadly ends up in a box, gathering dust or, Lord forbid, wasted away by time. With the technology made available to us today, we have the benefit of taking advantage of the most brilliant inventions and recording our most precious occasion by wedding photography and videography professionals. These are the storytellers, hired to tell our story in picture and on film (or disc), capturing all the magic and beauty of the day.
In the days of old, weddings would be remembered by intricate paintings. In actuality, it wouldn’t be the wedding that was painted. It was the still-picture that came afterward. 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.
As technology progressed, so didn’t the imagination of the time-recorder. Next thing you know, the photographer was no longer taking just one or two photographs. The photographer was taking many, posed and natural. But this isn’t the end of it. The next step, naturally, was the dawn of wedding photography and videography.
It wasn’t long before somebody thought that the photograph became the norm and, dare say it, boring. In comes the video camera. Now, not only were photographs taken to document the special day, but videos, too. This way, not only was the action documented, but all that was said, too. Not only did we see still pictures that told our story, but now, we were able to see the whole story unfold right before our very eyes, in just the way we would see it if we were invited to the wedding.
Some videographers have become so imaginative that, they take both still pictures and fluid video as well. That way, we get the whole picture from both points of view, at the same time. Who knows? Maybe in the near future, we’ll have to hire a wedding photographer and videographer, along with a hologram technician, too
