During the planning process, one of our real couples, Amanda and Sean, weren’t sure about hiring a wedding videographer. Amanda had picked a winter wedding date to help her save money on her venue and vendors but still didn’t feel like she could afford a wedding videographer.
Ultimately, NST Pictures was there to film their big day and in the video below, you’ll see Amanda and Sean watch their wedding film for the first time. Check out their reaction and what they had to say about having a wedding videographer.
Amanda and Sean’s artistic wedding video brought their wedding back to life.
After sitting in silence for a few moments soaking it all in, Amanda was the first to speak. ” I loved it,” she said smiling. Sean, who had never seen an NST Pictures wedding video before was the most surprised and compared the wedding film to a music video.
It’s not how it used to be. It’s not like this cheesy footage on a VHS tape.
Amanda continued: “It’s like cinematography and there are a lot of cool shots, especially if you get married in a really cool area, you want to remember all of the money you spent.”
Amanda and Sean’s beautiful 26 Bridge Brooklyn wedding had an industrial city chic feeling, complete with their photo session near Jane’s Carousel, set in front of the sparkling New York City skyline. At the reception, Sean’s daughter gave an emotional speech about growing up with her father. While she is speaking, the wedding film shows shots of Sean, who is a professional hairstylist, doing both his daughter and the bride’s hair the morning of the wedding.
Sean went on about the importance of the audio in their wedding film.
“I would listen to the audio on this and look at my wedding album of still photos and it would change the experience of looking at the still photos.” Sean said.
The audio is so… you know, I didn’t really think about how important the audio was.
“It just brings it to another level,” Amanda added.
Amanda was excited to see the wedding details again.
One of Amanda’s favorite parts of seeing her wedding video for the first time was getting to see all of the unique details that she had saved up for. “I’m glad that you guys were there so we can watch it again and again and again and remember all of the little details and the fun stuff.”
Their artistic wedding film showed off Amanda’s Steve Madden wedding shoes, her sequined and chiffon sheer wedding dress, her bridesmaids’ white textured bouquets and three multi-tiered wedding cakes.
Amanda’s biggest piece of wedding advice for other brides:
“Think about how you’re going to feel after the wedding. Months after the wedding, yes you’ll have amazing photos to look at but if you have a video, it’s going to kind of take it to the next level and bring it to life.”
