Have you been thinking about having a videographer for your wedding day, but don't know if you really want a wedding video? Here's why you should seriously consider it.

While videography is not in everyone's budget, there are still several advantages to hiring one if you choose to do so. And I know hearing this coming from a wedding videographer might sound biased, but there's so much that video can provide that pictures alone can not.

  1. Audio. Audio is the most important aspect of a video, especially for a wedding. You'll get to watch back your entire ceremony and hear your vows, hear the speeches from your best man and maid of honor at the reception, maybe even hear what your partner says during your first look. That definitely can't be captured through just pictures.

  2. Movement. This one may sound obvious, but it is still important. While photos can capture movement as well, video captures everything in between like dances and cute/funny candid moments in between your posed pictures. There's just something unique about movement in a video as opposed to a still image.

  3. Vibes. While photos can capture the events of your wedding day, video captures what your wedding day FELT like. Music plays a huge part in that in my films. I always pay attention to the music that's played during the ceremony and reception and find music that is similar for the video. I recently filmed a wedding that had a lot of jazz music in their reception, so I incorporated a fun jazzy song for the reception part of their video.

If any of these reasons stick out to you and are things that you want captured on your big day, I highly recommend hiring a wedding videographer. If you're still on the fence about it, I'd love to have a chat to see if a videographer is something you truly want!

This year, I have seen tremendous growth for Burn Bright Productions. I filmed 4 weddings in the last 6 months, produced 5 videos for a local band, hit 100 followers on Instagram and Facebook, went from 12 to 40 subscribers on YouTube, made a Burn Bright tik tok account and experimented with YouTube Shorts (which are actually doing really well). I also had my most financially successful year so far. I tripled my income from 2021 and actually came out with a profit after calculating my expenses from this year. I was able to put the majority of my income back into by business through buying new equipment and paying for advertising.

While this might not seem like huge progress to some, this is a big deal for me. I've learned so much this year about how to run a business like how to talk to clients, writing contracts, figuring out the best pricing for my services, marketing and advertising, business insurance, you name it. The work I've done on my business has definitely paid off and I plan to work even harder next year!

My goals for 2023:

  1. 6-8 weddings

  2. 2 music videos

  3. 1 commercials/promotional video

  4. Sell stock footage

  5. Buy new equipment (maybe a drone finally??)

  6. I'd love to experiment with stop motion and maybe have a stop motion video project this year

  7. Post regularly on tik tok and YouTube shorts

  8. Write 1 blog post a month

  9. Finding a permanent second shooter for weddings (if you're interested, feel free to email or message me!)

Thank you to every client I've worked with this year and those who supported me by watching and sharing my videos. It truly means a lot :) I feel like I'm moving in the right direction with my business and I can't wait to see what 2023 brings!
