Do I give my opinions to my clients, even though they tell me 100% that they don’t want a video of their memorable day?
Here it goes, grab a tissue….
Cinematographers have definitely come a long way. They are no longer in your face with the BIG white lights but use a more romantic, soft, documentary style.
My personal & professional reason to hire someone shoot your special day is because it goes by so quickly. Family dynamics change as the years go by and children want to see their parents and grandparents dancing, presenting speeches and laughing together. Video captures the raw live moments which pass you by so quickly.
I don’t know how other planners work but I will tell you this, when you hire me you get all of me, opinions & all…hahaha! My job as your planner is to help you look at things at a different angle. If at that point you still are not interested…. not a problem. I feel that I will have done my job because I’ve shown you all of your options.
