I came across this blog post while reading about wedding videography on the Knot’s website. It’s a very informative and in-depth article on wedding receptions, DJs, and capturing all the participants in a wedding ceremony through the lens of a digital video recorder. Please read on as I believe you will enjoy this great article on digital wedding video production and editing.
Whether you’ve already decided on a videographer or are still unsure about the topic, here are some advances in video that will help convince you that it’s a wedding essential. Are you ready to get reel?

Imagine your dad, decked out in a tux and with his glass raised, delivering a toast that leaves you and most of your guests reaching for the hankies. Your photographer will snap the pics to preserve the moment, but after the champagne glasses clink together, Dad’s words are only a memory — unless you have them on film. Wedding videography captures the sights and the sounds of your day, evoking a feeling and portraying the day’s emotion. Your videographer is bound to catch something you missed. The bonus: With digital video — often called DV — becoming the norm, your DVD promises to have a much longer shelf life than a grainy VHS tape. That means future generations will be able to see how Grandma and Grandpa married — even if at that point they have to ask what a “DVD” is. Here are some of our favorite video innovations.
The Digital Revolution
DV is pretty much the highest quality format that currently exists. One of it’s many benefits is that you get super-high resolution on your wedding DVD, and the quality will stay no matter how many copies you burn. You can send discs to people who couldn’t attend as well as to close family and friends along with your thank-you notes, and their versions will be just as good as the original copy.
Hot on DV’s tail is shooting in high-definition — the same crystal-clear picture that’s driving many to buy flat-screen televisions. With high-def wedding video (if your TV is HD-compatible) you’ll see that the quality is incredibly sharp and amazingly clear.
As is the case with most new technology, the drawback to high-def wedding videography is the cost — since videographers need all new cameras and editing equipment when they make the jump to high definition, their investment is reflected in a higher price. But you can’t beat high def for the supersharp, feels-like-you’re-there quality — you might even find yourself reaching out for another slice of cake!
