Five Videography Myths, Debunked!

Five Videography Myths, Debunked!

Wedding planning is so exhausting, and it can seem like a ton of work for one whirlwind of a day – believe us, we get it! But why spend time planning the perfect party if you won’t get to relive the words of wisdom your friends and family share exactly as they were spoken!? Yes, photos are incredible, and we work with tons of amazing professionals on your special day, but video preserves the visual elements, the rollercoaster of emotions, and the soundtrack to your first day as Mr. and Mrs. in a way photography can’t possible capture. Over the years, we’ve encountered hundreds of misconceptions about what we do as videographers, so we thought it might be fun to interview John Bilski, the owner and creative force behind Bilski Productions, and ask him to debunk a few of the myths that seem to hold couples back from choosing to have a video team on their wedding day! Kaitlyn Ferris Photography Myth 1: VIDEOGRAPHERS ARE OBTRUSIVE, AND WILL ONLY GET IN THE WAY. “Once upon a time, videographers would be in your way at seemingly every step you took, but not anymore! We make sure to blend into the background as much as possible during your special moments (such as the ceremony, the speeches, and your first dance) by tweaking the way things used to be done. Now, we use off-camera lighting to preserve the ambience of the room and utilize longer lenses, which allow us to keep our distance during those intimate moments with your new spouse. Our goal is to capture as many natural moments as possible, not ruin the special seconds you share with your favorite people!”...
Kathryn and Andrew’s Wedding at Carlyle on the Green

Kathryn and Andrew’s Wedding at Carlyle on the Green

  “So everybody, have you heard the news? Katie and Andrew are married!” Every time we capture a couple’s wedding day, there’s always something that deeply moves us, whether it’s their story, their families, or the way they love each other.  With Kathryn and Andrew, that special something was the way they laughed, cried, and embraced each other with such a fervor, we couldn’t help but stand back in awe. Their perfectly executed autumn wedding was stunning – with real trees as centerpieces and deep reds, oranges, and yellow at every turn – but to us, it felt like more than just decorations that filled each nook and cranny of Carlyle on the Green; it was a symbol of something greater. It has been said that, as a season, autumn is actually the beginning – the first. And for these two, their autumn represents the first time they stepped into the light, with their friends and families as witnesses, as husband and wife. And for us, being part of such a profound first was an absolute honor. Congratulations, Kathryn and Andrew! We wish you love, happiness, and an entire season of firsts for the rest of your lives.
