Here at Makena Weddings we always recommend hiring a Videographer for your Maui wedding! After one look at the beautiful wedding video of Deanne and Jim at the Olowalu Plantation House below, created by HI Light Wedding Films, and we are sure you’ll agree. But just in case you need more convincing, we’ve included the top 5 reasons why you must hire a Videographer for your Maui wedding below, courtesy of the experts at Wedding Wire.

Your videographer will capture movement and sound.

Still photos provide an image of a moment in time, but wedding videos capture both movement and sound. With a wedding video, you’ll be able to hear your spouse gasp during your first look, your dad’s toast and your mom’s laughter. You’ll be able to watch your first kiss as newlyweds, your first dance, and your grandmother’s amazing dance moves. For as beautiful and artistic as still photos can be, they cannot capture motion or sound—which makes a wedding video a must-have.

Wedding videos encapsulate the emotions of the day.

It’s so important to hire a professional videographer who will not only capture the raw footage of your big day, but also edit it down to create an emotional movie, frequently set to music, that will truly tell the story of your wedding from start to finish. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry—it’s the closest thing to reliving your wedding day.

You won’t see everything on your wedding day—but your video will.

Your wedding day will go by very quickly, and unfortunately, you won’t be able to see everything. For example, you won’t be able to watch your flower girl walk down the aisle while you’re waiting in the wings. You won’t see your mother-in-law shed a tear while you’re saying your vows. You might not see your parents dancing cheek-to-cheek while you’re mingling with guests. But a videographer can capture these moments on film, and allow you to watch them as though you were really there, and see even more moments than you were able to on your wedding day.

Wedding videos are easily shareable.

Nowadays, videographers are able to upload wedding videos onto platforms such as YouTube or Vimeo. This allows you to easily share your wedding video with loved ones (instead of lugging tapes or CDs to your grandmother’s house). Your videographer may also be able to create short clips for you to share on social media. It makes hiring a videographer ideal for those who are having smaller or destination weddings—you can help family members and friends who were unable to attend feel like they were actually there.

You can watch your wedding video again and again.

While you can’t hang your wedding video on your wall and see it every day like you can with your photos, you can find special times to watch it and let the memories come flooding back. Host a viewing bash with your wedding party, or watch it every year on your anniversary. Your wedding video will make a special occasion even more special.
